      It is not ok to vandalize or for people to destroy public property. But your phrasing makes it seem like I am cool with it. You assume quite a bit. I dislike the statues but they need to come down legally.

    Just noting when you almost off-handedly say it's ok...or downplay something. It does imply your ok with it. You say you are not...then you are not then.


My post, lost in a comment quote bracket was that many are being taken down in more constructive ways. I am not sure where you are getting this based on what I have said in this line of thought so far.

I am not ok with them being torn down. I do think taking them down is very much ok and what should have been done ages ago.

I mean if we are going by this sort of logic than I could almost make the same claim a few threads down about downplaying some other things to play up both sides stuff.

They should all come down in my view. Not sure what good reason there is for leaving a symbol to attempted insurrection and racial scorn in public spaces. Outside of monuments to the dead and so on.

I have not heard a compelling reason to leave them up. Being in a museum is fine.
