A statue of famed abolitionist and escaped slave Frederick Douglass was stolen from a Rochester, New York park over the weekend, revealing that leftist cultural vandals have no qualms with destroying icons of individuals essential to the movement against slavery in the United States.
The statue of Douglass was wholly and entirely removed from its base in Rochester’s Maplewood Park, and was missing as of Sunday morning. Pieces of rubble surrounding its foundations suggest the statue was ripped from its base.
