Posted on 08/16/2017 9:05:49 AM PDT by DFG
A Chicago pastor has asked the Emanuel administration to remove the names of two presidents who owned slaves from parks on the South Side, saying the city should not honor slave owners in black communities.
A bronze statue of George Washington on horseback stands at the corner of 51st and King Drive, at the northwest entrance to Washington Park.
Bishop James Dukes, pastor of Liberation Christian Center, said he wants the statue gone, and he wants George Washingtons name removed from the park.

The pastor can shove his wants up his Obamahole.
Tolerating nitwits only makes for suffering more nitwits.
I was just thinking that Mark Snyder is REALLY screwed now.
but of course. This is what Trump was getting at yesterday in that press conference. Now we can’t have the name of George Washington out there because he owned slaves.
The liberals derided Trump in that press conference, in part because of what was thought to be an absurd suggestion, that Washington was next.
The very next day, we see Chicago talking of taking the name off of Washington Park.
What the heck is going on behind the scenes to drive all this? Someone is not letting a crisis go to waste .
Only race-hustling poverty pimps could reverse the definition of ‘liberation.’
These people are more dependent on government and Democrats than any slave ever was.
IF these liberals can’t stand Washington, let them give me all their dollar bills. I’ll take those offensive portraits of Washington off their hands.
How long till we get new dollar bills, with Obama or some other liberal icon???
They are going to eventually demand to change the Nations’ Capital to “Obama, DC” and the “C” in “DC” won’t stand for “Columbia”.
Told you, they will not stop until they have removed every symbol of our history.
How about if, instead, this racist POS removed himself from OUR country?
How about stripping Robert KKK Byrd’s name from the bazillion buildings that carry his moniker, while we’re at it 1984-ing history?
Blow up Mt Rushmore! Tear down the Washington Monument! Obliterate the state of Washington! Etc etc etc
It will happen. All relics of any history that doesn’t glorify Communism must and will be eradicated. If Mrs Bill had won the election this would be going on in earnest all over the country and the Revolutionary War would be expunged from the records except to note that the People rose and expelled their capitalist rulers in 1776.
We knew this was coming. What will they put up in its place? A statue of Nelson Mandela?
You figure if these radicals get their way, we have to change much of our money.
Washington on the $1 has to go. So does Jefferson on the $2.
Is Lincoln ok on the $5??
Hamilton can stay on the $10 because some idiot wrote a half assed play about Hamilton, which the liberals loved. So he can stay.
Jackson is evicted from the $20.
President Grant on the $50; is he ok? He fought the evil Confederacy in the Civil War.
Ben Franklin should go off the $100, as he was one of those evil white men founding fathers, which we’re not supposed to call them founding fathers, even though all were men.
The pastor will probably get what he wants. First all the Civil War memprials and statues have to be pulled down, then they will go for the Founding Fathers and anyone else who was not an appropriate minority.
