    Do you think that all statues should be removed?

    Yesterday in Portland two statues were destroyed, oh no 3.

    George Washington, Roosevelt and Lincoln

    do you think that all statues should be removed from federal property and why?

      Erasing history is so dangerous. Personally I think statues are creepy anyways so to hell with all of them, but a lot of people are accusing historical figures of being "racist" and I don't think it's fair to taint their legacy because of misinformation and click bait headlines

        Only some statues should be removed, which is something else than destroyed. Others should remain in their place, also if they have a controversial or troubling aspect to them.
        Pretty much no statue should be removed by an angry mob. And the protestors who do so should expect to be charged with vandalism.

        Mainstream national history should change, in order to properly incorporate all aspects of history and portray it equally/more fairly and accurately from the perspectives of different cultural backgrounds. It's pretty hilarious how one sided the focus has been for the longest time, even after the supposed emancipation of certain american minorites.

          Here is a video, at the locations of where statues were torn down yesterday. protester arrives to tell people they are racist for not liking the destruction as well. So, both sides in this.

          the opinions, feelings of the people who live there.

              Well I guess you are ok with history being wiped out and Lincoln becoming a bad guy.

              they also vandalized the Oregon historical museum last night which preserved, had a huge amount of native artifacts, treaties etc... that told the history of the area. But let’s delete and cancel all that too.

                  Tearing down confederate soldier monuments was a slippery slope that led us to this.

                    didnt mao do this? Destroy documents ... destroy the history and indoctrinate people? students beat teachers to death, Temples and libraries were razed. Millions of people were banished to the countryside for "re-education." Or what is it called in the USA... critical race theory.

                    oh and did you see the skirt of the woman who wants to be mayor of Portland? More pro antifa than ted wheeler. Running against him...

                    libraries have been burned as well in these peaceful protests, Kenosha library was burned for one.

                      As an ex-Portland resident I would gladly trade China with Portland for Hong Kong

                    History is not wiped out and its only natural perspsective on historic figures change as society and the people in it changes. But besides all that, people in a free society have different opinions and perspectives. It's not really a concern that a lot of americans view Lincoln more critically. It's ok.
                    About the people calling others racist for not agreeing with their vandalism: there are idiots everywhere. You are often perceived as one too. Maybe you give thsese particular idiots too much merit. Because you focus on the news that emphasize on this stuff so much.

                      But that doesn’t mean tear it down. Damn he was crucial in the abolishing of slavery. Remove it. Who dictates this? Put up a plaque giving different narratives... science matters right? Evidence matters, right? Burn the churches and destroy all religious beliefs too. It can all be underground and hope .. that hope it gives people must be hidden as well.

                      Who gets to decide how one views an individual or what one must believe? Who decides what is ok? Portland has a statue of Lenin in the red square. They won’t touch that statue. No, that statue gets a free pass in Portland.

                      We are in agreeance about being very critical on Lincoln does not mean random individuals can tear Lincoln statues down. Ideally a community decides together, and some will have to make compromises in that regard. One group can't have it all their way (like it was for the longest time). You now get your panties in a twist because another group seemingly gets catered to extraordinary. But in essence they are fighting for a good and sensible cause. A minority is doing it in a bad and unconstructive way, but you are connecting some things to that which simply make you sound like a loon.

                    Sooooo blm destroyed the elk statue, it was removed for safety reasons as the structure was ruined and unstable. . Blm replaced it with an ugly garbage elk statue that was taken as discarded garbage at the edge of the roadways in the middle of the night, because it was garbage ... BLM was distraught over this pile of garbage being “stolen“ and now put up aanother garbage replacement elk, which can blow over and hurt someone or a piece can blow off and possibly cause a car accident.

                    here is the elk. 3.0

                      That’s what leftists do. They destroy everything beautiful and turn it ugly.

                        yep, seems they thought it was a good idea to destroy a statue, fountain and turn it into a landfill site. Just like they did with the Dakota pipeline protest.

                          They want to destroy everything. Mad because we won't let them do it legally, by putting them in office.

                          Now, they know that we know their darkness, so no need to hide it now.

                          All they want to do, is Tear it Down.

                          A sign of weakness way beyond the usual head game.

                          Ugly.
