Woke Culture Takes Down Statue of Key Historical American Figures for This Reason
Woke culture has struck again, and I’ll guarantee you that they have no idea why they did what they did because they never do.
I remember last year in the riots during the “Summer of Love”, stupid liberals desecrated a statue of Matthias Baldwin.
They spray painted the words “murderer” and “colonizer” on the base of the statue, they also put a noose around his neck.
What those morons didn’t know because they do not know anything about history, is that Matthias Baldwin was one of the early abolitionists who fought against slavery decades before it ended.

Well, they’ve done it again. While not on the same lever as Matthias Baldwin, they toppled a statue of Lewis and Clark, as well as Sacagawea because it was “too offensive”.
According to the New York Post,
The city of Charlottesville, Va. followed up its removal of two controversial Confederate statues Saturday with the lightning-fast toppling of a third local landmark: a monumental tribute to explorers Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and Sacagawea.
In an emergency meeting called with 20 minutes’ notice, the Charlottesville City Council voted unanimously to cancel another piece of public art targeted by left-wing activists.
“I feel that it should just be melted down,” Rose Ann Abrahamson, a Sacagawea descendant, said during the council meeting, The Daily Progress reported. “I feel that it’s entirely offensive and it should be obliterated.”
Within minutes, a city work crew — the same group that had dismantled equestrian statues of Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson earlier Saturday — arrived with ropes, a crane, and pry bars to wrench the artwork off the plinth where it had stood on Charlottesville’s West Main Street since 1919.

Do you know the thing that I always notice about stuff like this when it happens? They only make claims but never back them up. As it says above, someone called the statue, “entirely offensive”, but they don’t state why it is offensive. That’s because it’s not.
There are some statues that people want to be taken down that I can somewhat understand. This is not one of those times.
