Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh, a radical Democrat who is spending $100,000 in taxpayer money for sixty buses to take protestors to the anti-Trump rally in Washington next weekend continues to insert herself into racially charged issues.
In addition to the buses, Pugh is also the driving force behind using even more taxpayer money to provide legal defense to illegal aliens and this despite her cash-strapped city being a shithole that just had its highest murder rate in history.
Pugh has another doozy now. In following up with her stealth removal of Confederate monuments from a public park last year, she has now renamed the park after Harriet Tubman, the black icon who Obama had wanted to have her face replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill before it was rebuffed by the Trump administration.

Via Baltimore CBS affiliate WJZ-13 “Former Confederate Site In Baltimore Rededicated To Harriet Tubman”:
Baltimore celebrated Harriet Tubman Day by rededicating Wyman Park Dell, which was once a Confederate site.
A special ceremony united the community to honor underground railroad leader Harriet Tubman.
“Means a lot to me. Very happy to see all these people come out and celebrate her day,” said Baltimore resident Kim Williams.
A portion of the park is now renamed Harriet Tubman Grove.
Last year, Mayor Catherine Pugh ordered the removal of all four of Baltimore’s Confederate statues, including the statue of Confederate Generals Thomas. J. “Stonewall” Jackson and Robert E. Lee at Wyman Park Dell.
“We officially asked the mayor of the City of Baltimore to take down the two Confederate statues, and at the time we were asked what did we want in its place and without a doubt, everyone there said this needs to be Harriet Tubman,” community activist Marvin “Doc” Cheatham said.
Saturday marked the 105th anniversary of Tubman’s death. Dozens of people, including Tubman’s family members and city leaders, celebrated the rededication.
With no input from voters, Mayor Pugh ordered the removal of the Confederate statues under the cover of darkness despite the fact that they had stood for decades without being a problem until the cultural Marxists launched their war on statues as a part of erasing American history that is not to their liking.
One wonders what Pugh will do for an encore.
