On June 10th of 2020, a bunch of degenerate riff-raff pulled down the statue of Christopher Columbus that had been standing in front of the Minnesota State Capitol since 1931. It had been commissioned by an Italian immigrant out of respect for that great man. I speak of this incident because the pictures of my 6th-grade class in front of him, are all that’s left of that statue.
St. Paul’s Mayor, Mr. Melvin Carter (D) did nothing to address this illegal act, which is a felony. Our governor, Mr. Tim Waltz (D), also did nothing to hold the perpetrators accountable.
So, what did this illegal act – which was cheered on by passersby, who stayed and partied after Christopher Columbus was down – accomplish? It bought five minutes.
Here is a complete list of all statues that have been torn down by the woke mob, a total of 113 persons of greatness, all ripped down out of temper tantrums by overgrown children. I suggest you NOT go to the above link because since you’re at the Blue State Conservative, you will be as angry, if not more than I am seeing it.
So, a reminder: when the left gets its way, and a statue is torn down, it will accomplish absolutely nothing, except give five minutes of peace, until another statue is in their sights, and also must be torn down. Racism isn’t eradicated by this act, tempers still flair, and no one is happy about anything.
If someone had asked me, “Why don’t you want to tear down Christopher Columbus’s statue? Don’t you want to eradicate racism?” I would have said, “I will only tear down this statue, if you can guarantee all claims of racism, all complaining about slavery and all hatred of America’s past will be over with. If that’s not the case, then I don’t see the point.”
Tearing down our statues simply makes those who want them to stay look weak. And it makes those who tear them down look stupid. And America is paying the price for it.
