Why would anybody want to have a coin with an ape on it?
The U.S. Mint has decided to depict Lady Liberty as an ape on a new $100 gold coin. For whatever reason, there are people in the Treasury Department who have a weird obsession with putting non humans on coins and currency.
The US government on Thursday issued a new commemorative collector coin featuring Lady Liberty depicted as a black woman – the first time in history that the famed symbol of Americana is portrayed as an African American.
The 24-karat gold $100 coin was unveiled to mark the US Mint and Treasury’s 225th anniversary.
The 2017 American Liberty 225th Anniversary Gold Coin shows the woman’s head in profile with a crown of stars.
It features the year of the mint’s founding, 1792, as well as 2017.
The mint says the other side of the coin will depict an eagle in flight.
It was designed by Justin Kunz, an accomplished artist and illustrator whom the mint has commissioned for past works on coins, according to its website.
The Treasury Department headed by the Jew Jacob Lew announced last year that they had plans to eventually replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with a female monkey named Harriet Tubman.
These are not good decisions. The United States of America was founded by men of White European descent. It is highly disrespectful and offensive to the nation’s founders for depictions of subhuman animals to be placed on American coins and currency.
Donald Trump needs to immediately revoke the decision to have Andrew Jackson removed from the $20 bill. He should also launch an investigation into how the Treasury Department is making these decisions. There is obviously something very wrong if they think this type of thing is OK.
