Rioters topple Ulysses S. Grant statue on Juneteenth

Antifa-aligned rioters used Juneteenth as a pretext for tearing down a monument in San Francisco in honor of Ulysses S. Grant, who helped win the Civil War that led to the emancipation of slaves in the American South.

Though Grant was a man of his time, he faced Robert E. Lee head on, helped pass the 15th Amendment, stomped out the first iteration of the Ku Klux Klan, and attempted to reform US Indian policy.

But this is all lost on the rioters, as they seem to perceive every statue or monument in the US as a threat to democracy—and thereby support for oppression and suppression.

An estimated 400 demonstrators gathered near Grant's statue to watch in come down on Juneteenth—which celebrates the emancipation of slaves in the US.

What may shock demonstrators is that Frederick Douglass—escaped slave and leader in the abolitionist movement—eulogized Grant, in saying: "“a man too broad for prejudice, too humane to despise the humblest, too great to be small at any point. In him the Negro found a protector, the Indian a friend, a vanquished foe a brother, an imperiled nation a savior.”
