(CNN)A crowd of protesters gathered around a statue of George Washington in Portland, Oregon, on Thursday night and lit a fire on its head before pulling it to the ground.

Photos and video from the scene showed that the statue was spray painted with "Genocidal Colonist," "You're on native lands," "BLM" and "Big Floyd" -- presumably referring to George Floyd, who died last month at the hands of Minneapolis police.


Start coming up with new names for all the things named after old George. Founding father? NOPE, just another racist.


So there isn't much to say about this that hasn't already been said, but if we forget all the qualities of a man and reduce them down to one we deem bad, will there be any anger at all if we go after MLK because he was a womanizer? I mean, I can't even recall what else he did, just that he wasn't monogamous with his wife. Tear down his statues, and rename all those streets. All of them.

Is this the future you wish for your children?

Just the statues and street names. It's not like anyone would be erasing him from history, just removing the reminders of his promiscuous ways. All we need to do is remove the offensive things.

history is written by the winners. At least back then, George was a winner and your group were the losers. But dwelling on the past is so 8 minutes ago.

Someone who wins a conflict through " Treason " is still a " Treasonist "

History doesn't change that fact.

Just before the lynch mob got to him, I was able to ask him about that. he said without hesitation, "I don't give a rats ass about the British". So while it may still put some sand in your vagina, he doesn't seem to care.

George Washington... a guy who paid for schools to teach black people to read in a time where doing so was a crime punishable by death...

What a racist bastard!

Let's just not have a history before the Kardashians.

/facepalm

Washington was British. He wanted a commission in The British Army, but when he was refused he threw his toys out of the pram and changed sides.




When the 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence, they knew full well that they were committing treason against England and they knew the penalty—death.

he had slaves, so anything else is just noise. Can you imagine the CHAZ when they take over DC? I think they should get started on that now. It's going to be hot next week. All the burning needs to be over with by then.

You should thank heavens that ole George had the balls to commit treason against England back then.
If they didn’t form the great US of A, you guys would be eating Wiener schnitzel and speaking German over there after WW2.
You would have held your own for a little while but you would have been overrun by the Nazis eventually without a country called USA.

There is no doubt the Russians helped out big time but without the US, the UK would have fell almost as fast as France did and it would have just been the Nazis and Japan against the Russians.
WW2 would have ended a lot different.

No arrogance at all, just straight facts.
I am happy the way it turned out for our two countries.

There is no doubt the Russians helped


Are you mad ? Never heard of " Operation Bagration " launched a few weeks after D Day by The Soviets.

It basically wiped out Germany's " Army Group Centre "




Geographically, it dwarfed the campaign for Normandy. In four weeks, it inflicted greater losses on the German army than the Wehrmacht had suffered in five months at Stalingrad. With more than 2.3 million men, six times the artillery and twice the number of tanks that launched the Battle of the Bulge, it was the largest Allied operation of World War II.




www.historynet.com...





The 800,000-strong Army Group Centre was crushed. It is estimated that 510,000 Germans were killed, wounded, or captured, including 57,000 prisoners who were paraded through Moscow on 17 July

Learn some bloody history as you obviously know bugger all.
