One America News’ Jack Posobiec was attacked by thugs from Antifa and Black Lives Matter while covering the groups’ efforts to tear down the Emancipation Memorial at Lincoln Park in Washington D.C. yesterday.
Fortunately, Fox News journalist Kevin Corke stepped in and helped escort Posobiec out of the park before the skirmish got more violent.
Hundreds of Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters gathered at the Emancipation Memorial to tear it down.
Abolitionist Frederick Douglass — a former slave — spoke at the 1876 dedication of the memorial, which was funded by former slaves to celebrate the abolition of slavery.
Many black Americans oppose tearing down the Emancipation Memorial, saying it’s a historic reminder of America’s triumph over slavery.
Last week, leftist “protesters” toppled a George Washington statue in Portland, Oregon. Similar mass destruction is occurring in Democrat-run cities all around the nation, but Democrats refuse to condemn the property damage, riots, and group beatdowns of random white people.
The brouhaha yesterday at Lincoln Park erupted when a group of Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs spotted Posobiec and surrounded him.
The mob then aggressively shoved Jack while verbally abusing him and yelling at him to leave the taxpayer-funded, PUBLIC park.
The scuffle escalated when a thug named Jason Charter got in Jack’s face and accused him of being “literally a Nazi.” Then, other hoodlums gathered around Posobiec, shoved him, dumped water on him, and stole his phone.
Jason Charter was clad in the Antifa uniform of head-to-toe black. He also wore a pair of red ski goggles and a bike helmet. This spotlights his intent to be violent at the “peaceful protest.”

Later on, police escorted Posobiec out of the park amid ongoing harassment.

Black Lives Matter and Antifa want to destroy all statues of white men and any memorials related to slavery. However, many black Americans oppose this senseless and idiotic erasing of history.
One black man yelled at the leftist mob: “Y’all don’t even know the history of this statue, but you want to tear it down!”

An elderly black man dressed as Frederick Douglas stood guard in front of the Emancipation Memorial as rioters threatened to tear it down.
The man said the monument must remain because it was created “to be a place we could have conversations and ensure we understand the history.”

A black woman explained why the Emancipation Memorial is not racist.
“That man is not kneeling on two knees with his head bowed,” she explained. “He’s in the act of getting up, looking forward to a future of freedom.”

Reminder: The Left’s escalating race-baiting is not about “black lives mattering.” It’s about winning the November election.
