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.

Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order

Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.

According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.

The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.

Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.

The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.

Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.

As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
