The video begins with Lynch stating that people (African Americans) are experiencing “great fear and uncertainty,” and goes on to say that “our rights are being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back,” with the unstated implication it is due to Donald Trump becoming president.
“I know that this is a time of great fear and uncertainty for so many people,” Lynch says. “I know it’s a time of concern for people, who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back. I know that this is difficult, but I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.”
She goes on to say:
“It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference. They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.”
All over the country Confederate and presidential monuments are being desecrated and destroyed, and rather than tell people to be calm and stop the destruction of national monuments, Lynch is telling them to continue their rampage with more “blood” and “death” on the streets.
It’s not enough for her that the Charlottesville rally turned into violence breaking out when the white supremacist, BLM and Antifa groups were brought together, resulting in a young woman being killed.
The Charlottesville riot was the beginning of what is now a national movement by BLM and Antifa to rid the county of anyone in American history with ties to slavery.
President Donald Trump asked how long it would be before the Left’s mania to tear down Confederate statues expanded to other historical American figures and asked if that would include presidents.
In a PBS interview with Charlie Rose, Al Sharpton demanded that the federal government halt funding to Washington, D.C.’s Jefferson Memorial, saying that people who owned slaves should not receive public funds.
The Daily Caller reports that Sharpton offered an emotional and personal case why America’s third president, and the author of the Declaration of Independence should not receive federal funding.
“Our families were victims of this,” he said. “Public monuments [to people like Jefferson] are supported by public funds.”
“You’re asking me to subsidize the insult to my family,” Sharpton said, adding that private museums were preferable to federally-funded monuments to slaveholders.
“When you look at the fact that public monuments are supported by public funds you’re asking me to subsidize the insult of my family. I would repeat that the public should not be paying to uphold somebody who has had that kind of background,” Sharpton told CBS host Charlie Rose.
“You have private museums, you have other things that you may want to do there,” he added.
Sharpton said that because Jefferson “had slaves and children with his slaves, that it does matter,” he continued.
“I think that people need to understand when people that were enslaved and robbed of even the right to marry, and had forced sex with their slave masters, this is personal to us.”
“This is personal,” Sharpton exclaimed. “This is not some kind of removed discussion from us, our families were victims of this. Certainly they ought to be removed.”
If Democrats are serious about the removal of historical memorials tied to racist history, they should be tripping over one another to get in front of a camera and call for the removal of memorials and namesakes to Presidents Andrew Johnson, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and Sen. Robert C Byrd.
Remember when Michelle Obama said the White House was built by slaves… why not tear that down too.
If the racism issue were the real core of the conflict with African American’s Lynch and other community leaders should be calling for unity and proactive measures to resolve the issues – not encouraging anarchy.
Lynch said this in March, setting the gears in motion. We know that Soros and Obama’s ‘Deep State’ is working tirelessly to disrupt President Trump’s agenda with the ultimate goal being his removal from office.
All over the country presidential memorials are being desecrated and destroyed. It is apparent that local police and sheriff’s are not going to stop these small hordes of hoodlums – not just in Charlottesville are they standing back – it’s happening all over.
If Lynch is calling for more more “blood” and “death” on the streets perhaps it’s time to recall what Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence said:
