Its weird we have no statues of Frederick Roberts and Herbert Kitchener yet we know who they are.
Hey, it's the convenient "we don't need statues when a statue I don't like happens to be taken down" line.
I look forward to you advocating for all statues and memorials to be removed throughout the country.

Its convenient that the Dutchman didn't think it necessary to put up statues but that's not the narrative as its inconvenient to think that statues do not honor history.

I do think we should move them all to museum's like the one of Ghandi and Nelson Mandela.

So will the snowflakes still be hurt when they pass by his headless statue?
