Proof that the Statue Stealers are anarchists, not activists

On July 4th, Independence day, vandals ripped a  statue from its base in Rochester, N.Y. The statue was of none other than Fredrick Douglas and the date was on the anniversary of one of his most famous speeches, which he delivered in that city in 1852.

So who was Fredrick Douglas?

He was an abolitionist. And if that in itself is not enough to convince you that the practice of destroying statues has left it’s original message of “Black Lives Matter” than consider this:

 

Fredrick Douglas was a black abolitionist.

 

This outrageous act of removing his statue proves beyond any doubt that those who are removing the statues are merely anarchists, not activists

The stories are endless….misguided protestors who are protesting…what? Anti-slavery heroes?

“The Global News” reports : “Crowds outside the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison tore down two statues and attacked a state senator amid protests following the arrest of a Black man who shouted at restaurant customers through a megaphone while carrying a baseball bat”.

The “offensive” statue was one of none other than Hans Christian Heg, and in case you don’t know, Heg was a Colonel who was solidly against slavery,

Wikkipedia says that Heg was a Norwegian American abolitionist, journalist, anti-slavery activist, politician and soldier, best known for leading the Scandinavian 15th Wisconsin Volunteer Regiment on the Union side in the American Civil War. He died of the wounds he received at the Battle of Chickamauga

A biographer wrote  ““Slavery was abhorrent to him, and the sincerity of his views was later to be proved by the supreme sacrifice,” according to The Wisconsin magazine of history: Volume 4, number 2, December 1920.
