The radical Black Lives Matter movement destroyed another statue on Tuesday night, this time representing an immigrant who died fighting against slavery in the Union Army, as reported by Breitbart.
The statue was located in front of the state capitol in Madison, Wisconsin, and was erected in honor of Colonel Hans Christian Heg, who immigrated to the United States to Norway before enlisting in the Union Army, where he eventually died in 1863 at the Battle of Chickamauga.
The crowd, obviously ignorant of history, still defaced the statue’s pedestal with graffiti, including the phrase “Black is beautiful,” before eventually tearing the statue itself down. Colonel Heg’s statue was then decapitated and eventually rolled into a nearby lake.
Other statues have landed in the far-left’s crosshairs in recent days. On Tuesday night, Black Lives Matter gathered in Lincoln Park in Washington D.C. After being scared off by gathered riot police, organizers announced to the world that they would return on Thursday night at 7 P.M. EST to try to tear down the iconic memorial of Abraham Lincoln, which has stood since 1876.
