I just posted something about Silent Sam the other day. I also discussed the other statue they want removed... a giant spider. But it appears Silent Sam has been torn down.
The issue here is that this is a replay of another torn down statue in Durham, NC. These people will be paraded into court, given their liberal martyrdom, and let go because "I was offended" is a valid defense in 2018.
I called it back when they let the others go... more statues will come down. And more will follow Silent Sam. Of course, everyone is going to have a side here, and you'll hear them all a thousand times, so I'm going to give you the side no one is going to talk about.
Eventually, they are going to pull one of these statues down on top of one of their comrades. Someone is going to either be crippled for life or killed. At that point, the family will sue the state, it will probably be settled out of court, and someone is going to get rich off of our tax dollars for being stupid. And we'll be told it's completely just because only three things on Earth aren't racist now, and this isn't one of them.
Anyway, as I said before, considering the danger to life this is creating - plus the fact that the students at this same school are screaming for the removal of a giant spider statue - I call for the immediate removal of all statues. I don't care who they are, or even if they are people. I don't care what they are made out of, either. Remove them all, replace them with nothing. We can't predict what people will be offended by in coming years, and with the pulling down and repeated vandalism of these statues, they are now posing a threat to life and limb and tax payer dollars. Remove them all immediately.
