    Is that Lenin statue still in Fremont?

    Statues that represent evil, hatred and bigotry, but are otherwise politically correct are allowed to stand.
    The Lennin statue is more like a cool souvenir. I liken it to "betting for shirts" in Men's Rowing. When you win a race, your vanquished opponents have to give you the shirt of their back (literally). In a drawer somewhere at home, I've got a bunch of CAL rowing shirts, for example. In this case, we whipped the USSR and we got a nice piece or memorabilia to commemorate the W.

    No coach that goes .545 should have a statue erected in their honor.

    Tearing down, rewriting and removing or destroying history history is never a good idea. It's what dictators and historically evil regimes have done. History is there to teach us and remind us so things don't happen again. It doesn't exist for emotional reasons. I've never been "offended" by history. It's in the past and cannot be changed.

    Stop being a cunt if you're offended by things that happened long ago. Things changed. Men died to change it. GTFOI or GTFO.

    I tend to think that what Mayor Landrieu said about Confederate monuments in NOLA applies to all of them. If you haven't watched or read this speech, you should.



    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/23/opinion/mitch-landrieus-speech-transcript.html?_r=0



    I can't really find fault with Landrieus logic and agree on snuffing out the "Cult of the lost Cause" but to play devil's advocate, where do we draw the line? Is the line of demarcation those that committed treason- i.e., Lee, Jackson, Davis, etc? What about those who participated in and profited from the Peculiar Institution. Do we need to remove the Washington/Jefferson monuments?
    It's not an unwarranted concern. Once these things get rolling, hysteria takes over. See the Durham incident yesterday.

    King County was named after some slave holding Veep. I had no idea until it HAD to be changed. Now it is named after MLK I think but I always think of some slave holding Veep when I see the name

    So according to this leftist logic the Egyptians should tear down the pyramids, Italians should tear down their whole country and a huge chunk of Europe and all the Mayan and Aztec stuff should go bye bye too. Right?

    Get to work leftists!

    All built by slaves.

    But since the confederacy no longer exists does that mean slavery never happened? FYI all confederate soldiers are considered to be U.S. military veterans by law. You lefties tearing down the I would Jim and statue too?

    Naturally the democrats want the confederacy, slavery the KKK, JI'm Crows etc. all erased since they were all started by and consisted of democrats!

    In American politics, the southern strategy was a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans.[1][2][3] As the Civil Rights Movement and dismantling of Jim Crow laws in the 1950s and 1960s visibly deepened pre-existing racial tensions in much of the Southern United States, Republican politicians such as presidential candidate Richard Nixon and Senator Barry Goldwater developed strategies that successfully contributed to the political realignment of many white, conservative voters in the South to the Republican Party that had traditionally supported the Democratic Party.[4] It also helped push the Republican Party much more to the right.
