An Abraham Lincoln statue was vandalized as the left’s war on statues spirals out of their control.
A Chicago area alderman posted to Facebook this image of an Abraham Lincoln bust located in the 15th ward. The statue had been damaged by fire.
“What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism. This bust of Abraham Lincoln, erected by Phil Bloomquist on August 31, 1926, was damaged & burned,” Mr. Lopez posted. “If anyone has any information regarding this act, please contact the police or my office immediately.”
Abraham Lincoln joins George Washington as a casualty in a nonsensical war on historical figures. No longer is it just Confederate statues, now it’s any white guy from American history.
Earlier, a pastor in Chicago called for the removal of George Washington’s statue and the renaming of Washington Park and Jackson Park.
This isn’t about slavery. It’s not even about race. It’s about the negation of our history in order to transition the country to something less American.
First, they have to rid of us our national identity – our sense of nationalism. Seeing people burn the bust of Abraham Lincoln and call for the removal of George Washington’s statue says they are accomplishing that goal.
The war on statues is escalating.
