Leftist Rioters Absurdly Destroyed This Statue In An Apparent Juneteenth Celebration

(Right Country) – This past Friday was Juneteenth, a holiday dedicated to celebrating the official end of slavery in the United States. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the holiday, here’s a quick rundown to get you in the know, courtesy of AL.com:

Juneteenth traces its origins back to Galveston, Texas where on June 19, 1865 Union soldiers, led by Major Gen. Gordon Granger landed in the city with news that the Civil War had ended and slaves were now free. The announcement came two-and-a-half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of Jan. 1, 1863 that freed slaves in Confederate states. However, since that proclamation was made during the Civil War, it was ignored by Confederate states and it wasn’t until the end of the war that the Executive Order was enforced in the South.

The day’s name is a combination of “June” and “nineteenth” in honor of the date of Granger’s announcement and first appeared around 1903. It is also known as African American Freedom Day or Emancipation Day.

In San Francisco a group of about 400 people gathered Friday to celebrate the holiday and in their apparent zeal they determined that a statue of Union General Ulysses S. Grant was no longer worthy of standing despite his life’s dedication to fighting to free slaves. He cared about black lives before it was a trendy political movement.

As Townhall points out:

Ulysses S. Grant singlehandedly won the Civil War on behalf of the Union. He helped reconstruct our nation so we were one unified country without slaves. He even went so far as to free his own slave, William Jones. This was at a time in history when a person’s wealth and possessions were gauged by how many slaves they owned. 

Grant was also responsible for signing the Naturalization Act, which gave blacks citizenship and he created the Department of Justice to prosecute the KKK. He did great things to abolish slavery and yet his memory is being trashed.

There are still people who care about history and what Grant actually did for blacks. As Twitter user Boris Epshteyn concisely pointed out, “Tearing down the statue of General Ulysses S. Grant, who brought about Juneteenth by winning the Civil War, purportedly to celebrate Juneteenth says everything you need to know about the current climate.”

The left is apparently incapable of doing basic internet research to find out exactly who the men are whose statues that are tearing down in blind rage. Not every single white man who has a statute was a rabid racist. As a matter of fact, if it weren’t for white men like Ulysses S. Grant slavery never would have come to an end.

Tearing down his statue in some kind of “celebration” of Juneteenth is absolutely absurd and backwards. The left just refuses to acknowledge that not all white people are racist.

It’s a downright shame to watch the left utterly destroy the history of America. Yes, slavery was a horrible institution and that’s exactly what prompted millions of white Americans to fight for the Union in the Civil War.

  1. Are the BLM community going to Africa to punish the Africa people for capturing their people and selling them to slave traffickers for mirrors and other cheap items. People need to know history. Slavery is terrible but understanding the crime is critical.

    • Why doesn’t BLM/Antifa go to Muslim houses of worship and burn them to the ground? The Muslims are the ones who took blacks from southern Africa and sold them to slave freighters. But no, most of these puke heads are either atheist or Muslim. Go figure.

  2. Maybe they should really take up Ghana’s Offer to go BACK home = Africa…BUT, Africa, I don’t think have WELFARE Programs of any kind, i.e. Food stamps, so they rather STAY here and wreck havoc by also committing STUPID/SENSELESS crimes and/or getting People HURT/KILLED……!!!!

  3. The radical left is destroying everything they don’t understand. Taught by extreme left wing educators. Violence has become fashionable with leftist celebrities feeding their ego. Higher learning educators are 10 to 1 to the left and the right is afraid to teach the truth in fear of repercussions. The future of our Country is in trouble if continue to happens.

  4. Grant saved the union. His no-nonsense leadership led to victories which led to Lincoln getting reelected. It also kept us from negotiating a truce with the South. These radicals are so stupid and there is no compromise with them.

  5. If only the protesters would stop and think!!! WHO is gaining anything by this destruction, looting, burning, hurting and killing of ALL races of people across the country??? Only the RICH ELITES who are paying outsiders to stir up more HATRED and Division of the people of Our Great Country!!! The far left radical agenda is to divide, concure, and Control everyone and everything about Our lives… They don’t give a D**n about a single one of you, ONLY to go back and rebuild what protesters have destroyed and make a FORTUNE off of the Misguided mob… As for Black Lives Matter, they are one of the many GREEDY organization’s that are doing the same thing…. I ask you all, what do you gain by burning down your local businesses, your neighborhood’s , and Target police officers or anyone else who may disagree with your actions??? Who will pay for all of this ??? We the taxpayers of this country!!! Voting is the ONLY thing to bring about CHANGE!!! Get rid of the “OLD POLITICAL MACHINE” and it’s leaders to bring about change’ s in our country!!! Try it , 1 can make a difference!!!! Sad , Sad Day !!!

  6. All of these burn and loot kids flunked history class so you have to forgive them for being ignorant the rest of their lives, watch next they will tear down a statue of MLK. All of these burn and loot kids will all say MLK was an Uncle Tom because he peacefully protested and all his statues will be destroyed. It would be interesting how the media and older black Americans would react if a MLK statue was torn down. The media would definitely blame trump because that’s what they do!

  7. Didn’t you know they do not teach American History in school anymore. They only teach our young ones what and who they want to teach! No Religion such as Christian prayers in the morning,But the Muslim Children have the right to pray to Allah. They don’t teach to respect your Teachers,Parents,Country, American Flag or God our creator. What do expect from these Heathens who riot in the streets and hurt and kill each other and are being RACIST! Explain That!!!
