Australian Prime Minister: Changing Statues, Rewriting History is “Stalinist”
The movement to remove Statues that has gone wild in the U.S., is all about rewriting history. just as Josef Stalin did. I have yet to hear any of the Social Justice Warriors call for the removal of the statue of Albert Pike in Washington DC. He was a Confederate General and one of the founders of the Ku Klux Klan, yet the SJWs are silent about the Pike statue. I reject ALL attempts to remove statues and flags, as being an effort to rewrite history. I have no use for the Ku Klux Klan and Albert Pike, but they are a part of our history, like it or not. Freedom of speech is not about speech that we agree with. It is about the free expression of ideas; good and bad. – Shorty Dawkins

A voice of reason in a sea of insanity.
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced on Friday that attempts to replace or modify statues of English colonialists were reminiscent of Stalin.
The Democrats in America are committed to erasing American historic figures from public viewing.
Democrats have removed or vandalized statues of Confederate figures, Thomas Jefferson, Catholic saints and even Abraham Lincoln in the last month.
Joseph Stalin was famous for erasing purged figures from Soviet history.
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Friday that calls to replace or modify statues of English colonialists, including explorer Captain James Cook, were tantamount to a “Stalinist” rewrite of history.
Pressure has grown in the wake of the furor over Confederate monuments in the United States to reconsider statues in Australia that some deem offensive to the country’s indigenous people.
Sydney, Australia’s largest city, is deciding whether to alter a monument erected in Hyde Park, 1879, to commemorate Cook, who charted Australia’s east coast for the first time.
At issue is the engraving on the base of the statue, which says “Discovered this territory, 1770”. Aboriginal people had lived on the continent for an estimated 60,000 years before Cook dropped anchor in Botany Bay.
Sydney City Council has referred the issue, along with a second statue of Governor Lachlan Macquarie, the administrator who turned the British penal colony into a free settlement, to an indigenous advisory board.
