posted by Hannity Staff - 6.24.20

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy ripped the left-wing mob taking over major American cities Wednesday; saying the movement “won’t stop at statues.”

“The left-wing mob presents a serious threat to the American way of life. They won’t stop at statues. They’ve already torched police precincts, low-income housing, and churches. This violence against people and property cannot go unpunished,” posted McCarthy on social media.

Anti-police protesters in San Francisco, California toppled a statue of former President and Union General Ulysses Grant; the legendary leader who defeated Confederate General Robert E. Lee during the Civil War.

“Protesters in San Francisco on Friday toppled the statue of former President Grant, who led the Union Army during the Civil War, in Golden Gate Park,” reports The Hill. “San Francisco police said that approximately 400 people gathered around 8 p.m. to take down the statue, though no arrests were made, according to NBC Bay Area.”

“Grant did in fact own a man named William Jones for about a year on the eve of the Civil War,” Sean Kane, interpretations and programs specialist at the American Civil War Museum, said in an article. “In 1859, Grant either bought or was given the 35-year-old Jones, who was in Grant’s service until he freed him before the start of the War.”

Seattle’s embattled Police Chief had an “epiphany” over the weekend after attending George Floyd protests; saying “policing will never be the same.”

“I was looking at the 60,000 people that were there, signs saying, you know, defund the police, stop police brutality, you know, no qualified immunity. And there were thousands of people carrying those particular signs,” said Chief Carmen Best.

“And I just realized it was a moment, an epiphany, that this is a pivotal moment in history. We are going to move in a different direction and policing will never be the same as it was before,” she added.

“We need to re-imagine and re-figure out how we’re going to move forward as a country and as an organization to make things better for everybody,” she said during the interview with “Face the Nation.”
