It seems that most of the people negatively commenting have something in common Never mess with a gardener shirt. I don’t see how removing a statue of a person that did horrific things, erases our history. We can still learn and grow from it, but we need to stop glorifying people who exploited others for their personal gain. Why try to deny it when you can’t no matter what and history is the best teacher there is. Take it away and the whole process starts all over again. Museums exist. They aren’t only able to learn history by the existence of the moronic sod’s statue. The statue just stands there to glorify him. It’s not history. It’s a middle finger to history.
Sure we all don’t know about Hitler since there no statues of Never mess with a gardener shirt. In belgian schools kids don’t even learn about the truth. Evertthing about the mass murders of this kind has been banned for years in the schoolbooks. So time to Tell the truth and hope the new generation Will get some more respect. Who learns history from statues. It’s not denial that it happened, it’s refusing to honor the man responsible for slaughtering and maiming millions of people.
