Fredrick Douglas Targeted in History Purge

Are you liberals ready to reject this wave of fascism yet? It’s not about building a better America. It never was.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A statue of abolitionist Frederick Douglass was ripped from its base in Rochester on the anniversary of one of his most famous speeches, delivered in that city in 1852.

Police said the statue of Douglass was taken on Sunday from Maplewood Park, a site along the Underground Railroad where Douglass and Harriet Tubman helped shuttle slaves to freedom.

The statue was found at the brink of the Genesee River gorge about 50 feet (15 meters) from its pedestal, police said. There was damage to the base and a finger.

In Rochester on July 5, 1852, Douglass gave the speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July,” in which he called the celebration of liberty a sham in a nation that enslaves and oppresses its Black citizens.

    Liberal Savages.

    “Frederick Douglass recognized that the American Revolution not only espoused high principles, but had actually made important progress in realizing them—even as he also condemned the failure to realize them more fully, and the hypocrisy of Americans for tolerating the massive injustice of slavery, which so blatantly contradicted those principles.”

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    The only ones tolerating slavery today is Marxists demanding slavery to the state.

    “Among those who clapped back at the president was actress Mia Farrow, who pointed out that in December 2018, two white, intoxicated St. John Fisher College students were arrested and later pleaded guilty to vandalizing another Douglass statue near Alexander Street and East Avenue.”

    “They could all be right or, perhaps, as was the previous case of Douglass statue vandalism in December of 2018, two young men had too much to drink during a night out and felt the need to test their strength on an object they believed to be inanimate.”

    Right Randall, and the drunk kids tore down, right?
    You demonstrate stupidity pretty well, I will give you that.

  6. Mar

    Well, Mia Farrow and you represent stupidity pretty well.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    Oh please.

    You libs are ripping every anti-slavery abolitionist statute in site and this one is a Trump supporter?

    The easier explanation is leftist Marxists yearning to restore slavery.

  8. Le Roi du Nord

    Again equating fascists and marxists. Didn’t anyone ever take a poli sci class?

  9. Mar

    Right, Randall, because white racists with their tattoos are agitating people.
    And BLM thugs are falling for it. And the Antifa thugs fell for it.
    So, the white supremacists are so much smarter than these thugs?

    We are dealing with anarcho-Marxist revolutionaries, not “demonstrators” nor Fascists.  Their objective at this time is to demolish ALL vestiges of civilization regardless of racial overtones.  That is why they are called “revolutionaries.”

    Plenty of them around the UW-Madison campus and living right along Hy. 39/51 north of Stevens Point, along with Chicago, NYC, and the (far) Left Coast, exp. Seattle and Portland.

    I did, and made the socialist professor look absolutely foolish on the same subject…

  12. Le Roi du Nord

    Once again k proclaims himself the smartest person in the room! You and trump suffer the same affliction. And make similar mistakes.

  13. Mar

    Well, compared to you Le Roi, Kevin is the smarter 1 in the room.

    Weirdly specific.  Someone you know, Dad29?

  15. Mar

    You got me wondering to, Dad. Having lived and worked in the general area of 39/51, I am kind of surprised.
    Is there a group of radicals living near Kronenwetter that moved there recently?

  16. Le Roi du Nord


    No really, but believe whatever you like.  At least I know the earth is > 6000YO, and the difference between a fascist and a communist/socialist/marxist.

    The area is well-known as Hippie Haven to friends who have conducted large-scale business up there.  They’re not Gilligan-type doofuses, either.  They’re Marxist-leaning violence-optional revolutionaries.

    Sorta like the far-right wackos parading around in Tigerton, except Commies.
