The Charlottesville, Va. city council on Tuesday unanimously approved for the statue of Confederate leader Robert E. Lee to be melted down to create public artwork "that will "reflect racial justice," The New York Times reported.
The city council will give the statue to the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, which plans to melt the monument to create a new piece of public artwork, according to the proposed measure.
The city council selected the Jefferson School’s proposal “Swords Into Plowshares,” from other potential bidders for the statue, according to The Times.

This is a damn travesty. I’m sure the original sculptor was consulted, right? SMH
Finally, the healing can begin.
Some kind of irony here. The statue of the face of the rebellion and civil war to be melted down for the new cause of the next civil war.
“Swords Into Plowshares”
Biblical references are already becoming unwoke. They’re going to have to melt the thing down again, shortly.
Lesson: never give anything to the government, they will ruin it.
They’re so pathetic.
Are they going to use the molten metal to make horseshoes with the Trans Logo stamped into each one?
Maybe that unpronounceable symbol Prince used for a few years.
Hmmmmm! I’m already offended by the new piece and it ain’t even been poured yet. Anyone? Bueller? Crickets......
Hate Whitey statues now...how great.

Next up, renaming the school.

You know... If you want to show someone is crazy in a movie you might have their character furiously draw chaotic lines over and over a picture of some ex or other perceived enemy. This feels very much like that.

The elite inhabit an increasingly rarified sphere where I suppose this sort of stuff is considered oh so very important. Meanwhile, the average shlep is trying to figure out how to pay for groceries, fuel, and heat for the Winter as the price of everything spirals out of control.
A giant food stamp?
Depraved. Utterly shameful to vilify such a decent man.
