Christopher Columbus Statue Being Removed From Columbus State Community College

Christopher Columbus Statue Being Removed From Columbus State Community College

“a symbolic gesture of our commitment to our College and in our community to continue and accelerate the fight against systemic racism”

This is beyond parody. Is the school going to change its name as well?

NBC 4 in Ohio reports:

Columbus State Community College removing Columbus statue Friday

Columbus State Community College is removing the statue of Christopher Columbus beginning Friday morning.

The college says it will take an estimated eight hours to remove the statue.

In disassembling the statue, Columbus State says it has committed to:

– Ensuring the structure is removed in a manner so that it can be reassembled in another location if and when desired by a future curator.

– Completely and carefully removing graffiti from the statue after it is disassembled.

– Packing the sections of the statue for safe transport and storage at this time and to ensure its safe relocation to any future location.

The plan to remove the statue on campus was originally announced Tuesday.

“The removal of the Christopher Columbus statue is a symbolic gesture of our commitment to our College and in our community to continue and accelerate the fight against systemic racism,” said Columbus State President David Harrison.

And after the school, the city?

    Already happening, and there is move a foot to remove his statue from the statehouse. I suggest that the city is renamed Tecumseh–although he sided with the British at one time which forever taints him.

You have to place this event in context. It is an action by the modern-day Red Guards, doing away with the Four Olds to progress to a utopian Socialist society. If history must be re-written and a few million people have to die, that’s the price we pay for our new Socialism.

As we are now in open warfare, time for patriots to go on offense.

Nothing more merciless than a mob. Now; that’s what the US is becoming. Look out for the Black Napoleon! Then, look towards Haiti…
