Not Even Lincoln Is Safe

Not Even Lincoln Is Safe

(NewsReady.com) – President Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves in the US with his Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. His decision propelled the country into a bloody civil war, but he still went down in history as one of the greatest commanders-in-chief in American history. So, why are protestors trying to remove his statue?

A petition is circulating to remove a statue of President Lincoln and a slave in Boston’s Park Square. The Emancipation Memorial shows the former president standing above a slave who is kneeling at his feet. As of June 16, 9,527 people have signed the petition.

According to the petitioner, Tory Bullock, the statue should come down because it “represents us still beneath someone else.”

The reason is a bit baffling when you know the origin of the statue, however. It’s a replica of the original in Washington, DC that former slaves funded.

That’s right, actual slaves paid for the original. They believed it represents freedom and obviously, they were grateful for what Lincoln did. Now, 100 years later, the generation of the woke wants to get rid of it? Is anything safe?

  1. Great comments everyone. Let’s keep America great by standing up for all that that she was founded on. Americans of every color will not kneel!!! We stand together and fight for truth and freedom.

  2. Time to move to another country. Portugal maybe? Can’t take this stupidity and trashing of our history, the disrespect to our flag, schools, etc etc.

  3. I see Civil War is approaching very fast and those
    who created the atmosphere for it will be the first to die,
    from hanging on Penn Ave..

  4. This country has gone to hell in a hand basket. Sooo many ignorant uneducated people out there, who are completely clueless and obviously have nothing to do

  5. So ISIS has moved to the USA!!
    ISIS destroyed many historic sites in the Mideast and killed many people! If you didn’t join them they killed you! TRUMP wiped them out in the Mideast but ISIS snuck into the USA!

  6. We, the White people, did not start slavery. The Slaves were brought here by other Blacks and sold into slavery. Yes, the South later needed slaves to work the fields, but slave owners did give them a home, some form of clothing, and food. When they were freed, many Slaves did not choose to leave their masters. Why do you Think they chose to stay if they were treated so badly?
    Today, they want to destroy everything that pertains to slavery. This is history! You may tear down or remove all statues; however, history will not change. It is time for all people to learn to live together and respect each other and all property. Open your hearts, and let God in! Then, and only then, will all of this hatred and violence stop!!!

    • Oh my god are you full of crap no the biggest slave traders were the Portugese and the Spanish you liar there was nothing good about slavery they were given minimum food and there families were torn apart you lying sob no slave chose to stay the South immediately started Jim Crow laws and began to exploit the freed slaves it took100 years from the emancipation proclamation when LBJ signed the civil rights act people like you are the problem with your false history. and your false god,

    • Communism is taking over this country… Big money is funding the destruction of cities and communities… Prayer is needed … The Virgin of Fatima told this to the children at Fatima.

  8. Get rid of Chicago lots of black on black murders not talked about even though city has black mayor and police e chief

  9. CHARGE GEORGE SOROS WITH TREASON . PUT HIS ENTIRE FAMILY UNDER ARREST. LIFE SENTENCE NOT GOOD ENOUGH. ASK ISRAEL WHAT THEY WANT TO DO WITH THEM. OR SET AN EXAMPLE OF THEM . WHAT HAPPEN’S IF CAUGHT FOR TREASON. PROBLEM SOLVED.

  10. The few that continue to tear at the historical culture and monuments that help tell the story of this great country should be educated, as they apparently have no knowledge or awareness of the struggles previous generations overcame to get us where we are…and yes we have more to overcome. However these primal actions just demonstrate how easy it is to move generations backwards…it is always a few on both sides of an issue that makes it difficult to move forward and come up with real resolution …and on we go!

  11. What kind of jackasses live in this country? Oh, that’s ignorant, uneducated, lazy, pimps, hos and drug dealers.

    • Funny the hypocrisy is shocking!!! Nobody talks about the fact there are more racial black on white murders and other violent crime towards whites from blacks than the other way around. I can’t believe how the facts are just ignored. Provides the evidence that this is not even about race, this is right out of the communist play book on taking a nation down. You have mindless idiots who do no research but believe the lies they are fed to incite violence that fits their agenda. Amazing how the baby butchering demoncrap party wanted to keep the slaves, after the war, they would not allow them to vote, own firearms, etc, etc. It amazes me how they control most of the cities and have turned them into hell holes yet the black community like blind people, continue to vote for them!!!!!!

  12. Gee I never thought my Lincoln automobile would be dangerous to drive in a FASCIST state like OREGON OR WASHINGTON. WHAT’S GEORGE SOROS RIDE IN. I’M SURE IT’S A BENTLEY OR A REPLICA OF THE BEAST you know HAVE TO BE BULLETPROOF. I BEST BE RIDDING MYSELF OF MY LINCOLN. DON’T THINK MY INSURANCE WILL COVER ACTS OF DOMESTIC WAR. NA I FIGHT THIS BULLSHIT. GO TO HELL ANTIFA&GEORGE SOROS YOU BASTURDS. I WILL STAND IN THE NAME OF CHRIST AND NOT EVIL DEMOCRATS. AS IT SAYS WHO WILL STAND IN THE LATER DAYS.

  13. IF THERE WERE A50′ TALL STATUE OF JESUS CHRIST THESE IDIOTS WOULD GO ABSOLUTELY CRAZY AS IF THEIR NO ALREADY. HE’S MY ONLY IDIOL. The REST ARE NOT IMPORTANT. JUST HUMANS MAKING A DIFFERENCE. BLACK’S HAVE HAD IT BAD ,YES SO DID IRISH, NATIVE AMERICANS, JEWS AND YES WHITE’S. ALL LIVES MATTER GIVE A GREAT PRESIDENT A BREAK HE’S CREATING JOBS FOR ALL OF US. ( UNLESS YOU’RE WANTING FREEBIES . LAYING AROUND ON YOUR ASS AND CLAIMING VICTIM ISN’T GOING TO GET IT.

  14. Here is the only solution: effective immediately all statues of any person must come down immediately. Regardless of who they were, what they did or who paid for it. All schools, public and private will have their names changed to numbers. For example. Washington and Lee High School will now become P.S. 42 (public school 42) and so on. All schools. and sports teams must immediately remove any and all mascots. Even if it’s just an animal (Eagle, etc.) it could offend someone like PETA, ALF or vegans. All schools and their sports teams must be renamed after their school ID number. For example tonight’s football championship will be between the Richmond 19’s and the Roanoke 12’s. All pro teams will just use the name of their respective cities. ( Gonna make it tough to listen to the former Mets play the former Yankees on the radio!) All colors that do not exist in a rainbow must be eliminated. No more samon, flesh tone, or other offensive colored crayons. History will be eliminated as a school subject. If you did not personally witness something it never happened. There was no Revolutionary War, Civil War. There was no WW I &II unless you were there and even then you must never mention it in front of anyone who wasn’t there. No Great Depression, no dark ages, Renaissance, Inquisition or black plague. (Nothing existed before the birth of today’s snowflakes.)
    Everyone currently alive owes monetary reparations to everyone who will be born in the future for something I am sure they will say we did or didn’t do. Finally, no politics. No government, no taxes, no police, no fire departments, no public water or sewer, no public health services, welfare, food stamps or food and drug inspections or standards. EVERYONE IS ON THEIR OWN. Everyone make up your own rules and laws and enforce them as you see fit. Now, is everyone happy?!

    • No. You can’t have a black Aunt Jemima or white Snap, Crackle or Pop. So no They are not going to be happy. As Larry Turman said they all want some thing for nothing.

    • No! I am not happy because in your comment you brought up a lot of bad memories and made me feel bad. Now I don’t know what to do because Mom is at work at her second job and I am in the basement waiting for my buddy to get online so we could play a game.
      I have nobody to cry to now!!!!! Waaaaaa, Waaaaaaa…..if only Hillary had been elected, she would of made all things goooooood.

  15. No matter how many statues are pulled down, the fact will remain indelibly that some, not all, black people in America were once slaves. By attempting to erase history and change the past the militants are proving they aren’t looking for justice and equality. They want revenge! They want white people to physically experience the same humiliation. And they won’t be satisfied until all white people are brought to their knees!

  16. GETTING RID OF A STATUE WILL NOT GET RID OF HISTORY. ALL THE STATUES PELOSI WANTS TO GET RID OF WERE DEMOCRATES.

  17. Gee I never thought my Lincoln automobile would be dangerous to drive in a FASCIST state like OREGON OR WASHINGTON. WHAT’S GEORGE SOROS RIDE IN. I’M SURE IT’S A BENTLEY OR A REPLICA OF THE BEAST you know HAVE TO BE BULLETPROOF. I BEST BE RIDDING MYSELF OF MY LINCOLN. DON’T THINK MY INSURANCE WILL COVER ACTS OF DOMESTIC WAR. NA I FIGHT THIS BULLSHIT. GO TO HELL ANTIFA&GEORGE SOROS YOU BASTURDS.

  18. History seems to be beyond the knowledge of these idiots! Lincoln freed the slaves, Christopher Columbus found the country by landing in one of the Caribbean islands. Slavery was the foundation of world for many centuries before American existed.
    The original settlers brought slavery to these shores many years before this country came to be.

    We fought a Civil War and freed all slaves, ensured they had rights – all done by Republicans. Democrats overran the former slave states, created the KKK, Jim Crow laws, and managed to eliminate the rights granted at the end of the Civil War by Republicans.

    Destroying history is caused by ignorance! How will future generations learn about the struggles of our great nation?

  19. Do you statue haters know your history or do you just hate statues? Why don’t you get rid of all thinks that are Martin Luther King. It is the same thing. You anti anties are going way over board and you need to stop before Russia or Chinia does become the United States. Becareful what you wish for.

  20. History can not be changed because a bunch of morons want to tear down memorials. The memorials we’re not erected because they were slave owners or anything like that. These people played a significant roll in shaping our nation to what it is today. Without Lincoln,Columbus ,Lee and other leaders thing like this stupid petition wouldn’t happen. Seriously George Washington had slaves so does that mean we burn his house to the ground and ask for the Washington monument to be removed?

  21. IT is despicable to destroy history. This is what the democrats want to do.
    Good or bad we need to save history and never repeat the same bad things. God Bless this nation. All good Black and White people.

  22. This has reached the state of being not only blindly stupid, but imbecilicly absurd. This destruction of our history by a militantly hostile group that is making white people kneel or wash their feet or kiss their feet and beg for forgiveness for being white is not only racist and discriminatory, but disgusting. For corporations to sink to groveling at their feet is ridiculous. This design to humiliate and debase all white people and destroy our history must stop. Get off of your knees people and regain your dignity and worth. This whole situation is disgraceful. This is debasing the rights we have as American citizens.

  23. This is madness! You cannot erase History! Just like you cannot erase His Story! If you draw a circle and then remove the circle lines you still will not remove what is and what was and what ever will be. You cannot even erase you!

  24. Enough is a enough. Going to far now. God wouldn’t like it at all. Love the neighborhood!! It’s history!

  25. Get rid of all statues…anything Confederacy related, statues of Lincoln, Washington, Martin Luther King….no statue should be left anywhere in the US. Will that make them happy? Who the he!! knows.

  26. LINCOLN NOT SAFE……HECK the Anatchists in PORTLAND tore down a Statue of GEORGE WASHINGTON wrapped in a bURNING American Flag…..when is time to say ENOUGH BS ALREDY “????

  27. Pretty soon, Ford Motor Co. is going to have to get rid of the Lincoln name for their cars. Even though it has nothing to do with the former President.
