    These rioters are morons. They even vandalized the statue of Robert The Bruce. I had no idea there were black people in 1300s Scotland.

    I bet these idiots are like "Omg, a monument to a white guy and it's not Karl Marx. RACISM!"

    Also

    "Direct slavery is as much the pivot upon which our present-day industrialism turns, as are machinery, credit, etc. Without slavery there would be no cotton, without cotton there would be no modern industry. It is slavery that has given value to the colonies, it is the colonies that have created world trade, and world trade is the necessary condition for large-scale machine industry. Slavery is therefore an economic category of paramount importance."
    - Karl Marx -

    Isn't it funny how the father of Communism is excused for supporting slavery?

    It's bold of you to assume that they know how Karl Marx looked, no to say what he was saying. In fact, it doesnt even matter whose statue it is

    To be fair he did not support or reject slavery here and only noted its role in economical advancement

    Nope, so why should people be upset at the idea of them tearing down those in public spaces?

    You can always go to the Holocaust Museum, and crack open a history book. It's rather vile that people feel the need to celebrate and applaud shitty humans.

    That sounds like some 4chan nonsense.

    More like, they don't have statues of him because statues are used as a form of celebration. This whole idea of "Statues teach history!" is nonsensical, and a desperate reach to try to defend the statues.

    Not nearly as funny as the constant strawman of "LEFT = COMMUNISM!".

    It's just a regurgitated strawman that really has no substance to it when held up to scrutiny, yet it's an easy cop-out label so it still becomes the "go to" attack.

    Flag burning is legal within the US. Toppling a Washington statue would be a similar form of protest.

    Busting a Confederacy statue is not even remotely the same. They're not American monuments and they're not even historic since they're at best hagiography.

    I was against the renaming of Stalingrad, even though I firmly belive Stalin is a shit stain on the memory of Lenin and Marx who's policy's were closer to facism than communism.

    Making homosexuality illegal again in the USSR alone should make his memory worth spitting on. But then the list of his sins against both communism and humanity would need there own thread.

    America is a country founded on protest. Fuck patriotism. If your country is doing the wrong thing than you should protest.

    This is a great example of taking a quote out of context.

    Have a littel think, if Marx was anti capitolism and wrote a pice about how slavery is the foundation of said capitolism. He's not saying those things out of reverence for the industry he hated, the colonies he want to see destroyed or the World trade he saw as fattening the cats at the expense of the mice.

    Seems reasonable with all the sufering the American empire causes.

    I find it kind of funny, and a good lesson about why you don't let emotions dictate actions, tat the UK Protestor got egg on there face after they thought the sir Robert peel statues were of his farther, when in reality they were attacking statues of the guy who is litteraly responsible for why UK police don't have guns.

    Always think befor acting people

    If you tear down statues because "they are evil" according to your post-modern 21st century philosophy, don't cry when your statue and the statues of your heroes are torn down decades later because "you're evil" according to the people of the time.
    Confederate statues were put up way after the civil war - and for a completely different reason. New statues were raised whenever black people gained more rights.

    You'd know this if you paid attention in school.

    You think they are repressed because they don't want to celebrate one of the most disgusting human beings ever?

    Not surprising that you're a Hitler fanboy, what with all your Police asslicking and inability to understand human emotions through text.

    Is George Washington suppose to be immune to criticism or something?

    I mean, a bit of research shows you that he was also a slave owner, and despite slowly growing aware of how screwed up it was he still took little action against it, basically acting as if it was a necessary evil.

    Mind you, that's after he treated slaves pretty awful himself before he started to change his views.

    First of all, it stands on private ground, second of all, it was not build and placed in Seattle. It was not dedicated by an public entity of Seattle or state oder federal government, or hell even private organisation in any form.
    And secondly, it is on private ground, and privatly owned. Neither state, local or federal government have the authorety, to pass a bill, removing it.
    None of the Confederate Monuments we discuss here stay on private ground or are privately owned.
    To compare it to the monuments on public ground, often publicly owned is not remotely the same. It does not stand on a oublic plaza or government bulding. If you wish, to buy a removed confederate statue of Lee and place it in your garden, you are free to do so. Or of William II, George Washington, Stalin, Hitler, Leopold II, Churchill, Thomas Jefferson, Lettow-Vorbeck, Bismarck, Lenin... or whatever. Iraq probably has some Saddam Hussein statues if you wish to place on your garden.
