Remember a number of years in the past when Trump recommended that if the left began tearing down historic statues that ultimately they’d come for individuals like Lincoln and Washington? Remember how individuals within the media scoffed on the thought?
Well, right here we’re. This is occurring, simply as Trump predicted.
The metropolis of Chicago is reviewing statues which could ‘offend’ individuals and Lincoln and Washington are on the checklist.
The Daily Wire stories:
Chicago To Review 41 Potentially ‘Offensive’ Works Of Art Including Statues Honoring Lincoln, Washington, Grant
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot introduced Wednesday that town would start a “public process” of reviewing 41 “statues, plaques, and works of art” honoring probably “offensives” historic figures, together with statues of Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, And Ulysses S. Grant.
The announcement marks the conclusion of the “Chicago Monuments Project,” which started over the summer season after vandals tried to fell a statue of Christopher Columbus in Chicago’s Grant Park (a statue which was later “temporarily removed” in the course of the night time). The challenge reviewed 500 of town’s public monuments “with an eye toward identifying those that were offensive, problematic, or not representative of [the] city’s values of equity and justice.”
“Mayor Lori Lightfoot vowed Wednesday to confront the ‘hard truths of Chicago’s racial history’ — by launching a public process to review the fate of 41 statues, plaques, and works of art, including those of four former U.S. presidents: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, and William McKinley,” the Sun-Times stated Thursday.
This is madness.

The left is making an attempt to erase America’s historical past. They have to be stopped.
