The radical Left and their insane campaign of cancel culture continues. This time they’re targeting Abraham Lincoln, a supposed hero among African Americans. President Trump warned us this was coming.
The radical Left hates America
President Trump was right. He defended the monument for Confederate generals and the names of our historic Army bases named after them, not because he’s a Confederate sympathizer, but because you must draw the line somewhere with these radical Lefties. Give them an inch and they’ll take a mile. First the Left came for General Robert E. Lee. Then they toppled statues of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. Now they’re vandalizing Abraham Lincoln’s statue on the steps of City Hall in San Francisco.
The statue was defaced over the weekend, with the former president’s face and name covered in red paint. The incident reflects a growing debate over the legacy of the Civil War president in San Francisco, including a proposal to rename Lincoln High. The timing also corresponds to the Dec. 26, 1862, anniversary of the hanging of 38 Sioux warriors during the Lincoln administration and the Dakota Uprising.
Earlier this month, it was reported that a city committee had recommended changing the name of Abraham Lincoln High School because of his supposed ill-treatment of Native Americans.
Why is Lincoln in #SanFrancisco 'bloody' today?
It has to do with his role in the largest mass execution in US history. A story that we were not taught in school.

Antifa topples statues of founding fathers
First-grade teacher Jeremiah Jeffries, who sits on the committee, said “Lincoln, like the presidents before him and most after, did not show through policy or rhetoric that Black lives ever mattered to them outside of human capital and as casualties of wealth building.”
Earlier this year, a mob of Black Lives Matter rioters toppled statutes of American heroes in Golden Gate Park, including that of Ulysses S. Grant, who led the Union troops to victory in the Civil War. They probably didn’t even know who he was. Just an old White man and that’s all that mattered.
Last year, the city’s George Washington High School erased a mural of the nation’s first president because of its supposedly insensitive depictions of Native Americans and slaves. California really is ground zero for Liberal lunacy.
In August 2017, President Donald Trump warned that attacks on Confederate statues would eventually lead to attacks on monuments to American heroes, a prediction we see coming true now.
“So this week, it’s Robert E. Lee, I noticed that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?” President Trump said.
