Statue Of Slave Emancipator Abraham Lincoln Burned In Chicago

Chicago authorities found an Abraham Lincoln statue burned late Wednesday.

The statue of the slave emancipator appears to be burned, reported NBC 5 Chicago.

“What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism,” said Raymond Lopez, Chicago’s 15th Ward. “This bust of Abraham Lincoln, erected by Phil Bloomquist on August 31, 1926, was damaged & burned.”

While I agree that this is getting out of hand, I will wait for an investigation.
I want to know who did it

I agree.  I would not be surprised to learn it was done by a left organization to try to "stir the pot" a little more.

Then again if it was done by the left I would be super suprised if it was actually reported!!

Lincoln was also a slave owner and was big on lynchings.  Let's not deify him.
