Liberals are right: It’s high time this racist statue came down

Liberals are right: It’s high time this racist statue came down

Outraged liberals have been in overdrive, tearing down Confederate statues and monuments and renaming streets and landmarks, all in a simple-minded attempt to prevent racism by erasing history.

It prompted some, including President Trump, to joke that statues and monuments to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson would be the next to be expunged from our collective memory.

The Leftist loons didn’t let us down. Not only did they demand that statues of George Washington be toppled and that the Jefferson Memorial be turned into a museum. But they also insisted that parks named after Andrew Jackson be re-dedicated instead to the “Reverend” Jesse Jackson or, failing that, Michael Jackson!

While the revisionists are at it, there’s one super racist statue in Philadelphia that needs to be deep-sixed. It celebrates a white man whose most notable accomplishment was beating up a black man.

It’s time this symbol of hate be relegated to the dump:

Come on, we all know what this statue symbolizes – white privilege exerting itself over black oppression.

Not only did Rocky Balboa defeat Apollo Creed in the first two “Rocky” movies, but the former world champ ended up serving him as manager only to be killed in the ring later get by a white Russian. Not the drink, but an actual Russian named Ivan Drago.

You may laugh, but you also probably scoffed at the idea that liberals wanted to destroy tributes to the nation’s founding fathers.

And if you don’t think they’re dumb enough to at least try this, please review this story about how leftist Mensa candidates vandalized and tried to topple a Peace Monument, which symbolized the nation’s healing after the Civil War.

It’s only a matter of time before they actually come after the Rocky statue – and this time we’re not sure if Rocky is going to be able to pull himself off the mat.
