Priti Patel would lock this man up for ten years. Ten years.

Should we demolish all the buildings in Germany that was built by the Nazis? 🤔

Back to the link, are you Happy to have statues created by pedophiles out in the open?

Made by a man who gleefully wrote about what he did to his own daughters

You didnt answer my question

 

But i'll answer yours.....

 

I dont know the history of the statue or the person who created it

 

But the option of researching the subject and then making an informed decision has now been taken away from me by an idiot with a hammer and chisel

 

Who gives him the right to destroy the statue? Its not his property

 

If i live next door to you and i dont like your new patio extension does that give me the right to climb over your fence and pull it down?........No it does not

 

The catholic church is responsible for some unspeakable crimes...does that give me the right to burn down Sheffield cathedral?..........No it does not

 

We cant just allow anyone to destroy history on a whim.....we'd have nothing left

Not happy of course.

 

Also not happy that Joe Bloggs can come along and do criminal damage on a statue and get away with it.

 

There really (urgently, considering recent events) needs to be a proper legal process, whereby we democratically decide if to remove statues (or other works) that some consider offensive. I’m not sure exactly how that would work, but there needs to be some legal route for this.

 

A climate where anyone can come along and destroy anything they consider offensive, and get away with breaking the law, is not a good place to be.

im not happy it was damaged either, it is art and history, but art and history for me belong in art galleries and museums where you are free to go visit if you want, apparently theres been talk of it being removed for decades and nothing happened, same with the Colston statue there was a large public campaign to get it removed, which i believe they ignored. sadly this is the end result if people are ignored

The pulling down of statues goes back thousands of years and has always been a weapon or a sign for regime change

 

As ive said in previous comments i believe the recent events in places like Bristol to be politically motivated 

 

We have to put a stop to it now or it will just get out of control

And prisoners of war, didnt they build some bridges in China? Where do we stop?

The Bridge on the River Kwai, was that just a film, or did it really happen.

How long has this statue been there? How many millions of people have walked passed them blissfully ignorant, but are now so outraged they need to get rid of them?
