The former location of two confederate statues that were removed depicting General Robert E. Lee and Stonewall has now been dedicated to abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The re-dedication took place Saturday at Wyman Park Dell just a few steps away from the now-empty pedestal that was once home to the Confederate Generals.
The statues were removed back in August after a white nationalist rally turned violent when counter-protesters who did not have a permit to be there showed up and incited violence. A woman was killed at the rally when a car drove through a crowd of the counter-protesters making it a "white nationalist" issue instead and ignoring the fact the victims were illegally gathered.
Social justice warriors came out in droves to deface, destroy and protest any inkling of American history they didn't like. Ultimately, this leads to the removal of dozens of historical monuments. Black residents touted the re-dedication as some kind of moral victory. One resident named Kim Williams said, "Means a lot to me. Very happy to see all these people come out and celebrate her day."
So-called "activist" Marvin Cheatham said, "We officially asked the mayor of the City of Baltimore to take down the two Confederate statues, and at the time we were asked what did we want in its place and without a doubt, everyone there said this needs to be Harriet Tubman."
"It helps bring the community values to important places and help to weave together the community. This place is really interesting. Since the statues were removed, it has become a gathering place," said Baltimore Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke. No whites were interviewed by about how they felt by CBS because their feelings are irrelevant to them.
Tubman was a slave born on Maryland's Eastern Shore who is described as a "heroine and beacon for all ages."
