Just tear it all down

I’m like a stuck record.

The Jscobins have decided the Emancipation Memorial has to go. Too bad it is a tribute to the end of slavery.

Critics say the subservient ex-slave is demeaning.

Is it? I don’t know.

Maybe we should trust the people who commissioned the statue. That would be former slaves. Frederick Douglass spoke at the dedication.

Former slaves were OK with the Memorial. That ought to be good enough for rioters who don’t even know someone who knew someone who knew an actual slave.

Those of you of a liberal bent who are not speaking out against this kind of destruction are morally culpable. And a coward to boot.

Maybe we should revisit the words of Martin Niemöller
