WATCH: Brave Black Woman Defends Freedom’s Memorial Statue of Lincoln From Vicious Mob


Even Abraham Lincoln isn’t safe from the Black Lives Matter mob’s statue-toppling rampage.

According to a series of videos tweeted by Turning Point USA exec Benny Johnson, a crowd gathered around Washington, D.C.’s Emancipation Memorial statue in Lincoln Park on Tuesday night, vowing to return on Thursday night to tear the “motherf***er” down.

Not everyone in attendance, however, was there to support the destruction of the monument, including a brave, unidentified woman who scolded the mob for its extremist, counterproductive tactics.

According to WUSA-TV, a group called “The Freedom Neighborhood” organized the event.

“To achieve true justice, we are not working with the police, nor will we seek any relationship with them,” the group wrote in an Instagram post. “In order to create change, we will do so by any means necessary. If you want a revolution, it won’t happen by being peaceful.”

Unsurprisingly, the mob was unwilling to hear a white woman who explained that the statue still held tremendous educational value regarding the Emancipation Proclamation.


A woman Johnson identifies only as a “Black female pastor,” however, was able to have her voice heard, and she wasn’t pleased with the movement to tear down monuments and divide America by race.


According to WUSA 9, the statue was erected in 1876 to honor Abraham Lincoln for the Emancipation Proclamation. It was put up exactly 11 years after his assassination.

Critics of the statue note that it is well-meaning, but was obviously created without the input from the free black Americans who paid for it.

“Although formerly enslaved Americans paid for this statue to be built in 1876, the design and sculpting process was done without their input, and it shows. The statue fails to note in any way how enslaved African Americans pushed for their own emancipation,” said D.C. Congresswoman Eleanor Norton. “Understandably, they were only recently liberated from slavery and were grateful for any recognition of their freedom. However, in his keynote address at the unveiling of this statue, Frederick Douglass also expressed his displeasure with the statue.”
