I think the next step should be to vandalize the offensive tribute to this mass murdering dictator.  He owned slaves!!

Was he also the general in chief that waged war against the United State in a conflict that lead to the loss of life to approximately one million people?

He undoubtedly killed some of my distant relatives.  Whenever the calendar flips to August, I seethe with anger.

Eyephone, Germany forbids displays of Nazi era symbols - other than cemeteries which have some symbols that tie to that time period. With the German State slate wiping their past, do they still have freshly minted, living breathing hardcore Nazi's today? You betcha. It's not statues or monuments, but human nature that is at the heart of the issue. Wagner was an anti-Semite. Are most classical music listeners jew haters? If so, how many hours of listening to Wagner did it take?

Should new monuments be raised? Not really, unless in a museum setting for context. What about the old ones? I'd be OK with ringing them with historical context data rather than tearing them down. Everyone has their "tolerance levels" but today, most of the butt hurt beta-males out there have their intolerance levels cranked up to 11.

Somewhere, somehow, someone, will find it offensive if I raise the symbol below as a monument.

AHHH!!! I have been threatened with lynching....oh wait,..its just a shoe lace.

Police: 'Noose' found in Michigan State dorm was a shoelace

EAST LANSING - An item found on a stairwell door handle in a Michigan State University residence hall and initially believed to be a noose was, in fact, a shoelace, MSU police say.

MSU President Lou Anna Simon released a statement Wednesday morning  condemning what appeared to be an instance of racial intimidation and saying, in part, that "No Spartan should ever feel targeted based on their race, or other ways in which they identify."

By Wednesday afternoon, after further investigation, the university offered a different account of what had happened.

A matching packaged shoelace was found outside Holden Hall, the residence hall where the incident was reported,  MSU spokesman Jason Cody said in a news release.

Kids cartoons are fascist propaganda!  Didn’t everybody know that? I’m bringing this up at my next ANTIFA stroller stride.

Why kids love fascist cartoons like 'Paw Patrol' and 'Thomas'


(CNN) - Parents like to see themselves as purveyors of possibility. We want our children to inhabit a world in which identities are both mutable and equal, and imagination and empathy reign supreme!

But young children, as dictated by their tastes in popular culture, have something else in mind. They're drawn to worlds in which identities are fixed, order trumps imagination and transgressions are met with routine punishment.

Well, at least now I can add "I was avoiding cultural appropriation" in my repertoire of excuses for being late....

Awww c’mon!!

Is 'It's a Wonderful Life' sexist?

But have I cooled to classics like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Baby It's Cold Outside?" Kinda. I most certainly will never watch that movie or hear that song in the same way I did when I was a kid. And that's a good thing.

What gets me is I have a friend on FB that wrote a post defending his decision to continue listening to Baby It's Cold Outside to the group of virtue signalers he is connected with.  Why would somebody waste their time with such silly nonsense?  If the song bothers you, just switch the station.
