“A similar message was written across another statue of the 16th president in Lincoln Park, roughly six miles away from Senn Park, on Oct. 11.”
A statue of Abraham Lincoln in Chicago has been vandalized. Red paint was splashed on it and the words “colonizer” and “land back” were painted on it. It is the second time a statue of Lincoln in the city has been vandalized in recent months.
The New York Post reports:
Abraham Lincoln statue vandalized with paint in Chicago park
For the second time in under two months, a statue dedicated to former President Abraham Lincoln statue was defaced in Chicago.
On Thanksgiving, a statue of a young Abraham Lincoln in Senn Park in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood was found covered in splotches of red paint along with the words “COLONIZER” and “LAND BACK,” the Chicago Tribune reported.
According to the outlet, the statue also had “Dakota 38” written on it, in reference to the Dakota Sioux members who Lincoln ordered to be executed following the Dakota War of 1862.
Lincoln commuted the sentences of 264 Dakota fighters but sentenced 38 to be hung in Minnesota, which became the largest mass execution in US history.
The statue has resided in the outdoor park since 1997.
It was chiseled by sculptor Charles Keck, who also designed monuments of former Presidents Andrew Jackson and George Washington.
A similar message was written across another statue of the 16th president in Lincoln Park, roughly six miles away from Senn Park, on Oct. 11.
The vandals, who remain unidentified, allegedly wrote, “Dethrone the colonizers,” “Land back!” and “Avenge the Dakota 38.”

The language in this tweet summarizes the leftist view of America and its history.
Abe Lincoln made Thanksgiving a holiday in 1863. This "holiday" is nothing more than a celebration of the European genocide of native peoples.

It is maddening that there are people who were lucky enough to be born as Americans who believe that the very foundation of the country is evil.
It’s also very telling that for many of the same people, no Republican is good enough. If Abraham Lincoln is evil in these people’s eyes, no Republican will ever measure up to their impossible standards.
