Yep. The Marxist revolution continues apace. Because apparently the people who matter have spoken.
Taking a lesson from military history, the Left has learned that sometimes it's better to attack along all fronts. Don't show up to a statue here, a memorial there, or take on a topic over here. Hit them all at once. Destroy and tear down, attack and wreck and ban and silence. Across the lines, along the flanks, from behind, any way possible and as often as possible.
It's certainly worked, as any resistance has apparently collapsed. Conservatives are running like scared rabbits. The GOP is stone silent. Religious conservatives are collapsing and joining the uprising. And anyone with even the slightest ax to grind is jumping on the bandwagon.
Why is the statue of Columbus being removed? Well, for one of any reasons, take your pick: It's racist, hate, sexist, patriarchal, misogynist, homophobic, imperialist, colonial, Islamophobic, bigoted, antisemitic, transphobic, and any other reasons. I thought of that because he said it represented, among other leftist jargon, patriarchy. No clue what he means by that, except to just throw in a few more leftist buzzwords of division. Or statues of men are bad. I'm not sure.
It's also worth noting that there is a growing movement to have the city of Columbus change its name. I can't imagine how difficult that would be, but then I thought it would be difficult to convince Americans to throw out America's heritage, declare its heroes Nazis, and invoke the destruction and banning of any unclean thing deemed so by a flagrantly Marxist inspired movement. So apparently I suffer from a deplorable lack of ability to see the future.
