Literal and Figurative Fireworks Set for Washington DC Over the Weekend

Emotions are at an all time high on The Beltway.

The 4th of July weekend is upon us, and, for many in America, this will be one of the strangest Independence Days of all time.

That’s because our nation has been thrust into a series of stressful, divisive arguments over the course of the last few months – all while being cooped up, waiting for COVID-19 to starve to death on  diet of strict social distancing.

One particular discussion, that of racial inequality, has manifested itself in a series of protest and demonstrations all around the nation.  In some instances, violent extremists would commandeer the attention as night fell, turning these peaceful protests into something far more sinister.

Protesters plan to storm Washington, D.C., over Independence Day weekend with protests and demonstrations.

Activists in the most high profile of these events plan to protest the Emancipation Memorial in Lincoln Park. The memorial, which leaders of the local collective the Freedom Neighborhood claimed they would topple last week, has become a subject of national interest, with many people making a case both for and against the statue.

Glenn Foster, the leader of the Freedom Neighborhood, has promoted multiple protests against the memorial set for the days surrounding the July 4 weekend. In some of his material, he celebrated the fact that on Tuesday the Boston Arts Commission voted to remove an identical copy of the statue, which depicts President Abraham Lincoln freeing the slave Archer Alexander, from public display.

President Trump has indicated that he would be taking a stern approach to arresting and prosecuting those who would seek to topple this statue and others, setting up quite the showdown for The Beltway.
