Black Lives Matter Rioters tear down statues of Union general Ulysses S. Grant, National Anthem lyricist Francis Scott Key
In case you haven’t figured it out by now, the riots being staged by Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA are geared to one purpose and one purpose only – the destruction of America. On Friday, as blacks celebrated Juneteenth, Black Lives Matter was busy destroying the statue dedicated to the man who smashed the Confederate Army, and helped win the war against slavery, Ulysses S. Grant. Then, just for fun, they tore down the statue dedicated to Francis Scott Key. What was his crime? He wrote the words to the Star Spangled Banner. Now do you see where all this is headed?
“Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.” Proverbs 22:28 (KJB)
Today is Father’s Day, and as any father who ever raised children knows, you cannot resolve conflict between kids by condoning violence. What father would ever, in a million years, tell his child who just got hit in the head by his brother with a toy truck, to take up a bat and strike back? Only a bad father, and certainly no Christian father, would ever say that. But this is how Black Lives Matter wants to ‘resolve racism’, by being racist, by employing violence, and by burning, looting and destroying other people’s property.
Ulysses S. Grant should be a hero to blacks, he devoted his life to helping end slavery, and empowered by the Civil Rights Act of 1871, Grant smashed the Ku Klux Klan. And yet his statue is torn down? Francis Scott Key wrote the hauntingly beautiful words to the Star Spangled Banner, a flag that represents freedom and liberty for all peoples. Black Lives Matter hate Grant and Key because these men are true American heros, and BLM hates America.
Many on Twitter pushed back against the toppling of Grant’s statue in San Francisco.
FROM THE HILL: Protesters in San Francisco on Friday toppled the statue of former President Grant, who led the Union Army during the Civil War, in Golden Gate Park. San Francisco police said that approximately 400 people gathered around 8 p.m. to take down the statue, though no arrests were made, according to NBC Bay Area.

Also torn down in the park on Friday were the statues of St. Junipero Serra and Francis Scott Key, who wrote the lyrics to “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Friday was Juneteenth, a national celebration commemorating the last slaves being freed in Texas on June 19, 1865 — nearly two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued.
He was a “slave owner” in that he was gifted a slave, hated the idea, and freed him within a year. Then won the Civil War, prosecuted the KKK, and appointed African Americans to prominent roles in government.
This might have gotten out of hand. https://t.co/5HdEDgodzm

While Grant is widely celebrated as being one of the leading forces who helped the Union win the Civil War, bringing an end to slavery in the U.S., some historians have pointed to his complicated relationship with slavery.
“Grant did in fact own a man named William Jones for about a year on the eve of the Civil War,” Sean Kane, interpretations and programs specialist at the American Civil War Museum, said in an article. “In 1859, Grant either bought or was given the 35-year-old Jones, who was in Grant’s service until he freed him before the start of the War.”
Kane also noted that Grant married into a slaveholding family that owned dozens of slaves.
After Confederate forces fired on Fort Sumter, Grant wrote his father, an abolitionist, saying, “My inclination is to whip the rebellion into submission, preserving all Constitutional rights. If it cannot be whipped any other way than through a war against slavery, let it come to that legitimately. If it is necessary that slavery should fall that the Republic may continue its existence, let slavery go.”

Whitney Houston Singing The Words Written By Francis Scott Key
Among the annals of national anthems as a prelude to sporting events, few have topped the one delivered by Whitney Houston before Super Bowl XXV in 1991 in Tampa. A woman, her incredible voice and the bare minimum of extraneous notes. Her rendition came at a particularly patriotic time, just after the onset of the Persian Gulf War, and was released as a single. It was re-released after the September 11th terrorist attacks. Houston donated all proceeds to charity. She ranks among the best of all-time because of the circumstances and … that voice..
Black Lives Matter hates the beautiful words that Whitney just sang, because Black Lives Matter hates America, Black Lives Matter hates freedom, and Black Lives Matter only seeks to burn, loot and destroy.
