"Our Beautiful Statues"

Post by Joe Shlabotnik »

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments... Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson - who's next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!"

Just stop it already.

It is at the point where the country needs to rid itself of this cancer at the very top. He is diametrically opposed to what America is and strives to be.

It is time.

GOP's Frankenstein. They made him, they need to get him out. They won't do it until their financial/power sources weaken.

Very true. The Democrats are right not to make a hue and cry. Because there is nothing they can do and it would just make it harder for those who have to take the lead to get this guy out of the Oval Office.

But man of man, it is time.

Orange guy wants the statues honoring racists to stay up so his will have company.

Since Trump wants to keep statues of losers around, I suggest we build the biggest, most beautiful statue of Trump's favorite loser (Hillary) on the front lawn of the White House.

I mean, he has to approve that, right?

I saw an article yesterday where the mayor of Chicago wants to remove washingtons and jeffersons names from a presidential memorial in Chicago. I'm not backing Trump here but where does it stop?

not accurate.

a pastor asked the mayor to remove names/statues.

The old slippery slope logic fallacy. Remember when gay marriage was going to lead to people marrying farm animals, etc?
