Hell yes take down any statue of Bathhouse Barry.

A bronze sculpture of former President Barack Obama is due to be unveiled in Rapid City, S.D., some time next month. If you’re wondering about the significance of Rapid City, it is home to the largest tribute to four American presidents, carved into the face of Mt. Rushmore. Obama’s likeness, moreover, will be the latest in a series of all former presidents mounted on street corners throughout the city.

There’s just one problem with the plan. In 2007, a genealogical researcher determined that ancestors on Obama’s mother’s side were slave owners. (That’s probably true of ancestors on Obama’s father’s side as well, as slavery was once a large-scale industry in much of Africa and remains in practice in some countries to this day.)

And in these emotionally charged times, when many on the Left are clamoring for the removal of all reminders of the nation’s first president, you just can’t except any leader with a sinful past.

Via the Guardian:

Obama’s ancestors on his white mother’s side appear to have been slave owners. William Reitwiesner, an amateur genealogical researcher, has published a history of Obama’s mother’s family and discovered that her ancestors have a distinctly shadowy past.

Reitwiesner traced Obama’s great-great-great-great-grandfather, George Washington Overall, and found that he owned two slaves in Kentucky: a 15-year-old girl and a 25-year-old man. He also found out that Obama’s great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Duvall, also owned a pair of slaves listed in an 1850 census record. They were a 60-year-old man and a 58-year-old woman. In fact, the Duvalls were a wealthy family whose members were descended from a major landowner, Maureen Duvall, whose estate owned at least 18 slaves in the 17th century.

Following the logical progression of the liberal anti-history brigade, anything and everything featuring Obama’s name must be removed and scrubbed from our minds, books, and records.

They can begin with the statue shown above, which is already on display in Obama’s adoptive hometown of Chicago. There’s another bronze likeness of the forty-ninth president in San Juan, Puerto Rico:

Next time Im in San Juan I guess it will be OK for me to destroy this Obama statue since he ruined race relations in America
