  1. Well, I may get a chance to symbolically do what is pictured.

    I am taking my wife to the area where I grew up, for a few days, a town that was, and is, picturesque and quaint. These days, though, I’m probably traveling behind enemy lines.

    It’s really odd the town I grew up in, which was a real life Mayberry RFD, has been taken over by a bunch of whiny Karens over the last four decades. (yeah, yeah, I’m old enough to speak in decades)

    What’s pictured is a simulation
    I don’t pee on private property without permission, even Lenin

  3. It’s been pointed out that Lenin didn’t own slaves (keyword: own).
    My title says “slave-driver”.
    Not sure how else to describe a guy with slave-labor camps and compulsory collective farm labor.

    Only difference between Lenin and Legree was that Lenin didn’t buy and sell his slaves for cash, that I know of.

    However, if you believe that whites were never real slave slaves, and that blacks can’t be racist racists, then we’re gonna remain at an impasse. I refuse to throw over-simplified genetics into an ethics issue. There’s no way out of that pit

    I’m a never-owned-a-slave guy who won’t have any truck with anyone who did, and I don’t buy into inherited guilt, not even Original Sin. Neither do I buy into inherited virtue or victimhood, not even privilege. A person makes themself, for good or bad.

    Slavery is one of the vilest, most un-liberty-loving institutions in the long history of mankind on this planet; and it still exists. I have no use for virtue-signallers who’ve done nothing to remove slavery from the face of the Earth today. Merely yelling at History is lazy, cowardly, ignorant, and stupid.

  4. The irony of Leftists saying the LENIN statue had not been toppled because it is on private property. smh

  5. Best comment on that tweet-thread:
    ‘Lenin was not a slaveowner.’
    “Of course not. He just accidentally had millions dragged from their homes by armed men, shipped thousands of miles, beaten, tortured (physically and psychologically), starved, worked to death, and shot if they tried to escape.”
