Why do racist socialist thugs tear down American statues?
Because they know that local politicians are cowards, either happy to have them do it without having to take responsibility, or too cowardly to put them back up once it’s done.
The Christopher Columbus statue in Boston’s North End will be removed Wednesday, hours after it was beheaded overnight. Mayor Marty Walsh said it will be put in storage and there will now be conversations about the “historic meaning” of the incident and whether it will ever go back up.
I think we all know how that conversation is going to go.
But has Marty considered that Boston is full of the statues and monuments of the dead white men who built this country and Black Lives Matter would like to tear them all down?
And Boston’s tourism is based on its role in American history. Get rid of that and Boston just becomes another overpriced university town there’s no reason to particularly visit unless one of your kids is going to school there.
