GET YOUR PUSSY OFF HARRIET TAUBMAN! – Someone, who might or might not know any history, thought it was a good idea, presumably because Taubman was a woman:
#HarrietTubman is an American Hero who endured a life that none of us could imagine. This statue is a celebration of her triumph as a slave..a woman..a human being who risked her own life to rescue others from slavery. To decorate/deface it as part of ANY movement is a disgrace. pic.twitter.com/DRpa59BpVD

Taubman was a genuine freedom fighter, a badass gun-totting Republican ex-slave who helped liberate and smuggle countless slaves to the North, all the while a marked woman by the Southern slavers and slave-owners. She would likely roll her eyes at the thought of a pussy hat and the Women’s March.
