Grant, for those who slept during that part of U.S. history, was the man who led the Union Army during the first Civil War. As president, he smashed the KKK, the militant arm of the Democrat Party that terrorized blacks in the South after the war.
Key, for those not familiar with history, was the man who penned “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the War of 1812.
According to police, 400 mobsters gathered to pull the statue down. No arrests were made.
Atlantic staff writer Adam Serwer posted the following on Twitter:
Grant did briefly own one slave he freed years before the war; but as a general he smashed the Confederacy, and as president he crushed the Klan. He presided over the ratification of the 15th Amendment. People going after Grant probably just want to break things. https://t.co/rVtPOcvyAN

Unhinged low-information leftists across the country are currently engaged in a jihad against U.S. history, and have toppled statues of a number of prominent historical figures, including George Washington. And let’s not forget that a co-founder of Black Lives Matter, one of the main groups in this jihad against America, has admitted to the organization’s Marxism.
It’s enough to make one think they really do want a second, bloody civil war.
