The Emancipation Memorial was constructed in 1876 in Washington D.C in Lincoln Park, about a mile east of the United States Capitol. The statue features Abraham Lincoln in the act of freeing a slave from his chains, visualizing the legacy of the President whose legacy consists of abolishing the abhorrent tradition of slavery in America.

“Thursday, 7PM… We tearing this m*********** down.” Crowd of fanatic liberal historical ignoramuses cheers with glee.
In a twist attesting to the leftist thug’s monumental ignorance, it’s known that the iconic statue of President Lincoln was constructed with funds raised by freed slaves, many of whom were Black Union Army Civil War veterans.
Although the cultural criminal speaking has a dubious chance of succeeding in the monument destruction, there are elements of Washington D.C’s government that want the statue gone and possess a chance to eliminate it. City Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton has announced her intention to see the Lincoln statue moved to a museum, claiming that its design is offensive and that it has no place in modern-day public society.
When the Left openly flouts its intention to deface a statue memorializing the President thought by many to be even greater in the progress of American society than George Washington, it’s lost any claim to a genuine and authentic American political movement.
