The following article, Protesters Rip Down Statues of Union General Grant & Former Slave, Must Not Know History, was first published on Flag And Cross.
You know that Union General Ulysses S. Grant helped President Abraham Lincoln defeat Jefferson Davis and the Confederacy to end slavery in the 1860’s. Radical left protesters don’t know that.
Unless, could it be that these people just really, really hate statues?
Protesters in San Francisco, California, toppled a statue of Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th president of the U.S. who led the Union Army during the Civil War, among other monuments at Golden Gate Park on Friday.
Video footage and images shared on social media showed the statue of Grant being torn down on Juneteenth, which celebrates the emancipation of slaves in the U.S.
Nearly 400 protesters were reported at the scene around 8:30 p.m. local time, according to police, who did not engage with the demonstrators. No arrests were made, NBC Bay Area reported.
This is no longer about righting wrongs. This is just ignorance. Toppling Confederate statues…fine…understandable. But toppling the statue of President Ulysses S. Grant, who fought AGAINST the Confederates. Now this is just crazy. You people hate America. Just admit it. pic.twitter.com/KyaCZGX3C5

Cervantes wrote this about freedom. The ones who tagged his statue, of course, never read it. pic.twitter.com/tg4joUJ3W9
