https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Lenin_(Seattle)

The Statue of Lenin in Seattle is a 16 ft (5 m) bronze sculpture of Communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, by Bulgarian sculptor Emil Venkov. It was completed and put on display in Communist Czechoslovakia in 1988, the year before the Velvet Revolution of 1989. In 1993 the statue was bought by an American who had found it lying in a scrapyard. He brought it home to the U.S. state of Washington, but died before he could carry out his plans for displaying the Soviet era memento.

Since 1995 the statue has been held in trust waiting for a buyer, standing on temporary display for the last 24 years on a prominent street corner in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. It has become a Fremont landmark and is often decorated, or vandalized. The statue has also sparked political controversy, with commentators discussing it in light of the removal of Confederate monuments and memorials.
================================================== ========================

Before a statue depicting U.S. Civil war history should be desecrated, one would think this statue of the father of communism should find its way to the bottom of the ocean to collect barnacles....... but our resident commies on the West Coast will likely continue to DECORATE it...

Lenin was bad news. Most American youth are totally ignorant of how murderous Lenin and the party he dominated were.

Most American youth are ignorant of Joe McCarthy. Only now the enemy is the news media. If "they" can convince the American people that the news we receive is "fake news" , they can feed us "their truth" and we'll buy it.
Who is "they"? You tell me , You believe you know it all.


God bless each and every one of you

I don't think that's quite correct.

I think that the youth just aren't as put off by murder as one might like.

The youth tend to be liberal, and liberals tend to be violent.

Tell me what books you've read about Vladimir Lenin, Thomas.

Comparing JM to Lenin is like comparing a fly to a Pterodactyl.

My Life with Paul, George and Ringo was probably the best one.

The media was my point, silly rabbit.

Bye, bye. I responded for 2 posts. I already regret it. You won't see me again.


God bless each and every one of you

He's right Tom.

Lenin was bad while some consider Joe McCarthy a patriot.
I certainly do.

Whatever you are reading, your source is misleading many.

I have noticed a distinct lack of good people. They do not percolate
evenly on both tribes. As for national people, I'd have to think long
and hard to come up with a singular name and no doubt they would
be of the distant past.

Equivalent? Nope.

Pretending it exists widely is self-deception.

No, I think he was correct. The youth don't like history. and what little they know they were taught by fools. Like his HS German teacher who never set foot in Germany. WTF ? And she argued with him about the proper pronunciation of Cologne, spelled Koln, in German. And very difficult to pronounce the German version. Almost sounds like "kern". But, he was there, and she was not, but she would not take his word for it.

My son is studying abroad in Austria, and he is amazed on what his fellow American Students who are there as well are so clueless about history and geography, or why some countries exist and why others have disappeared.

He took a train on Saturday from Vienna to Slovakia to just hang out and the 2 folks from studying abroad program went with him. They had no idea that Slovakia was the other half of Czech at one time. My son filled them in on it, what happened, and when they split in the 90's. He was amazed at how little folks know. Yeah, he's a history major, but still, come on ??
