Big League Politics will be livestreaming the 13th annual National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C. all day Monday.
The parade will run on Constitution Avenue in our nation’s capital and will feature historical re-enactors, close to 1,000 active duty military personnel, and musical performances by country music star Daughtry, rock band Five For Fighting, and others.
A quarter million people are expected to come out for the event.
“The parade is a moving timeline of American military history, a tribute to fallen heroes from the Revolution to the present day,” American Veterans Center executive director Tim Holbert tells Big League.
We will also be featuring videos and interviews from Memorial Day events elsewhere in the country.
While the mainstream media turns a blind eye to our fallen heroes, we are committed to bringing you the best coverage of this sacred national holiday.
The parade starts at 2 PM Eastern Time Monday. Please come to Big League Politics for all of your Memorial Day coverage.
Thank you to all of the fallen heroes who gave their lives for this great nation, the veterans who sacrificed to fight for our freedom, and the active duty military working every day to ensure the safety and resilience of the American idea.
Statue of Abolitionist Frederick Douglass Removed & Stolen from New York Park
So much for this being about Confederate statues.
A statue of famed abolitionist and escaped slave Frederick Douglass was stolen from a Rochester, New York park over the weekend, revealing that leftist cultural vandals have no qualms with destroying icons of individuals essential to the movement against slavery in the United States.
The statue of Douglass was wholly and entirely removed from its base in Rochester’s Maplewood Park, and was missing as of Sunday morning. Pieces of rubble surrounding its foundations suggest the statue was ripped from its base.

The statue was later found in a gorge some distance away from its place in the park, having been crudely dismounted and dumped. The Douglass statue was confirmed to be damaged from the vandalism by Rochester authorities.
Douglass, a longtime Rochester resident, was one of the most famous Black Americans of the 19th century, having escaped slavery as a young man and taken up the abolitionist cause. He was an associate of President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War, and is thought of by many as one of the first black Republicans throughout the Reconstruction period of American history.
Vandalism of the Douglass statue, who perhaps is on par with figures such as Ulysses Grant and Lincoln in association with the Union cause during the Civil War, would eliminate any claim of merely targeting Confederate and “racist” statues on the part of left-wing rioters and protestors. When you can’t even differentiate between figures such as Stonewall Jackson(who merit the preservation of statues in their own right, even if they were on the wrong side) and Frederick Douglass, you lose any claim of historical enlightenment in justification of your cultural jihad against American civilization.
