Rioters Deface Memorial Devoted to First All-Black Union Army Civil War Regiment

Talk about hypocrisy.

Published

on

In a display of acute hypocrisy, looters and rioters appear to have vandalized a statue in Boston dedicated to the second black regiment to fight on the side of the Union in the American Civil War.

The Shaw Memorial is named after Robert Gould Shaw, the commanding officer of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment. The regiment came into existence after Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Emancipation Proclamation, and recruited blacks in the northern United States. It saw combat in some of the Civil War’s most vicious battles, with Shaw himself being killed in the Second Battle of Fort Wagner.

Authorities believe that rioters vandalized the memorial on Sunday, May 31st- curiously enough, the 123rd anniversary of its dedication.

At the memorial, which depicts the regiment, was found defaced with graffiti, and “ACAB,” inscriptions(an acronym for “All Cops Are B*******).

Democratic Boston Mayor Martin Walsh condemned the vandalism, admitting that it was disgraceful. “That memorial is sacred to black Boston and to our country. This was the very last thing that our city, quite honestly, needed.” A $3 million restoration project repairing wear on the memorial was slated to begin only last week, having been delayed by the coronavirus.

The memorial is located at Boston Common, a collection of memorials nearly the Massachusetts State Legislature. Other historical monuments were defaced with rioter’s graffiti, including the George Washington Statue, a 9/11 memorial, and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Cleanup crews started removing the spraypaint and damages to the monuments on Monday.

It’s an acute irony that vandals and rioters, many of whom claim to be speaking in the interests of black people, felt compelled in what was either an act of historical ignorance or indiscriminate anti-Americanism to deface a memorial to some of the first black American soldiers to take up arms against the Confederacy.

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Published

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
