Seems like the guy abused his power, denying any form of a vote on the statues, to score some political points with the extremist nuts.
How about a statue paying homage to some real American heroes we can all be proud of instead of racist traitors who were fighting to keep humans in chains? Is that really so hard for the cult right wing to swallow? How is this even controversial?
Here's a quote from Robert E. Lee to put things in perspective. "The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa morally, socially and physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing is necessary for their instruction as a race, and I hope we will prepare and lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known and ordered by a wise merciful providence". Disgusting.
Wow Columbus and now the former confederate capital are seeing the light. Good things all around.
I am sure they will forget to put them back after things calm down.
