[Ed. – Will the U.S. still be recognizable after liberal mayors finish kowtowing to the anarchists?]
Mayor Andrew J. Ginther announced Thursday that the Christopher Columbus statue on the West Broad Street side of City Hall will be removed as soon as possible and placed in storage.
The Columbus Art Commission has been charged to lead an effort to replace the statue with public artwork that better reflects the people of Columbus and offers a shared vision for the future, shared Ginther.
“For many people in our community, the statue represents patriarchy, oppression and divisiveness. That does not represent our great city, and we will no longer live in the shadow of our ugly past,” said Ginther. “Now is the right time to replace this statue with artwork that demonstrates our enduring fight to end racism and celebrate the themes of diversity and inclusion.”
The statue was one of several across Columbus targeted by vandals in the past few days.
