Australian Prime Minister says attempts to replace statues of English colonialists is reminiscent of Stalin

A little sanity coming from Australia.

As the statue debate in America ranges on…moving beyond statues, to engulf sports broadcasters sharing a name with Robert E. Lee, and now college mascots, like this USC horse, which shares the name of Robert E. Lee’s horse…

The Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced on Friday that attempts to replace or modify statues of English colonialists were reminiscent of Stalin.

The Gateway Pundit reports…

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.

Reuters reports…

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.

Does this logical, measured statement from Malcolm Turnbull make him a white supremacist? In the eyes of the unhinged, looney liberal left in America, we know what the answer would be.

“Does this logical, measured statement from Malcolm Turnbull make him a white supremacist?”
No, it simply makes him a cunt, that’s all. He knows jack about Stalin and comparing Stalin removal of people who were accused of treason with removal of monuments of people dead for more than 150 years simply makes him a cunt, that’s all

Could be, but then it would lose its intended meaning. I could add adjective ignorant in front of the foul word, maybe that would give a scholarly appeal to it. As for jack it is not directly offensive but is intended nevertheless.

I tend to judge Stalin by his era, and I agree that he was a great man. Perhaps you’ll draw people to your discussion with more reasoned discourse, and less cunt, Sport.

Stalin did none of what you believe qualifies him as psychopath. Russian historians who had full access to all the records from Soviet times say so. Sickos from Internet and Anglo-Saxon “historians” say differently. It is very simple, all you need is to figure out who had access to primary sources and who had access to their arses only. Your opinion of Bolsheviks clearly shows who’s feeding you with the “wisdom”. It is not much of the choice as I said earlier. Believe sickos from Internet, fiction writers and Anglo-Saxon “historians” engaged in falsifying history or read Russian historians who… Read more »

I have found out even one US historian, though of Russian background, who had full access to Soviet archives in the early 90s, and who, instead of writing typical US bullshit narratives in full emotionalising Hollywood design, delivered a very precise reconstruction of the year preceding up to the year following the October Revolution. His name is Alexander Rabinowitch. As his work gives thorough insights into primary sources (including, what every solid historian does, surgical looks at the context of origins) and he carefully wages different findings, his work does not seem to attract US readers. Comments on Amazon are… Read more »

“… to rulee a mob of vicious subhumans” —- great language, that hugely qualifies you as moron ideologically following Nazi-footsteps. Nazis called Slavic and non-Slavic SU population alike “Jewish-Bolshewik subhumans” —- and showed by slaughtering 27 million of them how much suprematist hubris devastates in people everything that has been historically regarded as “human” in the sense of “humanitarian”. (Although history had already proved before that European colonialism, here in the first rank that of Anglosaxons, proved white colonialist suprematists and their genocidal thirst, not as ‘sub-‘, but even as anti-human slaughterers’.) Those who you call “sub-human” have never themselves… Read more »

R E Lee and A Lincoln died around 150 years ago. Seems MT isn’t the only one who knows jack shit about history. Does that make you an ignorant cunt by default?

The interviewee is right: this sort of cry of outrage is not the end of this silliness. It is the beginning of something that could turn sinister and dangerous.

Nothing but a bad version of BF Skinner’s ‘Walden 2,’ social control through language, technology and culture. A bipartisan effort in western countries to control its people.
