tit for tat
While I don't think living Presidents are worthy of having a statue, I'll wait until nationwide outcry has occurred and not the special snowflake MAGA twats.
found that bit ironic.
Well moral and political issues aside, on artistic merits alone, that statue has to go.
Is the microphone something of a symbol? Perhaps a sly wink to Mapplethorpe?
I demand the removal of these racist statues:
People need to stop judging people on a single issue. Look at ones entire story. ****, FDR rounded up Japanese people and threw them in internment camps, yet there his monument stands.
Who is that supposed to be. Just a horrible looking statue. It should come down for looking hideous.
ALL of congress needs to go.
Wondering when people will start trying to remove "Trump" from buildings/etc...
I hear he is too heavy and squirms too much.
Can't accuse one side of doing something and then do the same and expect not to be called out on your bull. That's how life works. It's unfortunate that there are some easily offended Dems, but just as that, there's a lot of whiny twits on the GOP side.
Just couldn't find a picture of all of them, really quickly.
Who's the nutter wearing what looks like a bedazzled cowboy hat?
exactly why it was ironic, "look at those snowflakes" , "well this offends me so take it down"
I'll say this though. Older Republicans who are actually sane, aren't bad to talk to. Same with Dems. It's the young people who are really weird. Unfortunately, our side tends to have a lot of young stupid people with the occasional harlot for Jesus thrown in for good measure.
‘Known racist and a nazi sympathizer’: Activist projects message onto Trump’s D.C. hotel
That already started.
I recall one of his Trump branded apartment complexes in NYC demanded the name be removed shortly after he was elected.
Chicago got in on the act as well.
I don't pay attention to white trash. Can't say.
While a debatable point, not even close to equivalent.
The South was defending something not much better than what the Nazi's did (everything short of mass extermination. Some would even say death is preferred to endless suffering).
FDR's internment was spurred by mass fear (that may have prevented retribution and racist murders) and bit of racism, but not strip identity, forced into hard labor with no food, and extermination. In the end they where freed (although with little re-compensation). Yes it was wrong, but not horrific.
What I do hate is all the taking things out of context and/or ignoring the details, this is almost equivalent to lying! (and it seem hard right is very skilled at such unethical, deceptive comments)
Last I checked, neither Clinton nor FDR (or Thomas Jefferson and George Washington for that matter) led an insurrection against the United States. Neither committed treason against their country. Whereas all your confederate heros did. And as much as you try to dress it up, the Confederate cause was their right to hold people bondage.
In your defense, you are not the only ones who feel the way you do. I mean, there are these people:
Give the leader of that group a cigar.
who said a picture is worth thousand words. Ten words and I spilled a whole cup of coffee.
8/10 people would consider slavery this countries biggest sin, Jefferson and Washington weren't innocent bystanders in that. FDR rounded up people and jailed them for the color of their skin. We have statues and buildings named after the former Grand Kleagle with the Ku Klux Klan (democrat Robert Byrd), someone who Hillary Clinton called her "mentor". I have no problem taking down statues, if you want to wipe our history books clean have at it, but lets not be so selective about it. Be consistent in your outrage.
