George Floyd rioters deface 16 Boston statues, including memorial honoring black Civil War regiment

Protesters and rioters incensed by the death of George Floyd destroyed at least 16 memorials and statues in Boston, including one dedicated to black soldiers.

The Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Regiment Memorial, a sculpture dedicated to black soldiers who fought in the Civil War, was damaged after thousands of protesters descended on Boston Common to protest police brutality against black people, according to Boston NPR affiliate WBUR.

“This monument is considered one of the nation’s greatest pieces of public art and the greatest piece to come out of the Civil War,” Liz Vizza, the executive director of the Friends of the Public Garden, said. “It was, amazingly enough, dedicated 123 years ago on May 31 — the day it was defaced.”

The Shaw memorial depicts likenesses of the 54th Massachusetts Regiment, the first black volunteer infantry unit in the Civil War, which fought after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

The other 15 memorials were honoring American Patriots and Heroes… that weren’t black… so no outrage or regret expressed for them.   Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh owns this.  He has done nothing (just like other Democrat Mayors) to stop any of it.   In fact he has encouraged it.
