They could well pull down the statues of Martin Luther King Jnr, for not being radical or violent enough. On the anniversary of his death last year there was a lot of revisionist articles stating he was about to embrace a more violent struggle and had seen the error of his ways and the Civil Rights Movement. He will have to go, or be re-imagined as a revolutionary.What is the line? Are you asking me if i think people are going to want to pull down martin luther king jrs statue next? Because thats obviously ridiculous.
I am perfectly good with the protesters doing whatever damage they feel is necessary in service of their struggle.
Since we're here, whats your stand on the iraqi's pulling down sadaam's statue?
The pulling down of Saddam's statue was staged if you remember.
Should further statues, books, art on the American Civil War be censored and erased? The Lincoln Memorial as he hoped that freed black slaves might go back to Africa. Gone With The Wind a book and film told mainly from the perspective of the ruling class of slave plantation owners. What about Robbie Robertson's The Night They Drove All Dixie down, a pretty offensive song, sung from the perspective of someone from the Confederacy at the end of the war?
