The statue that commemorates the time jesus caught a really big fish?

A new level of stupid.

Every.  Farking.  Day.  Republicans need to pay a steep and tremendous cost for Trump and his toilet of deplorables. They need to pay a cost so steep that no conservative will ever again consider voting for anyone like trump ever again.

We need a modern-day Sherman's march through conservative circles.  (metaphorical, not literal, but we're getting there)

It's almost as if Trump and his supporters think BLM protesters are indiscriminately tearing down random statues just for the sake of tearing down statues, as opposed to tearing down specific statues because of those particular statues' inherently racist iconography.


/the Cristo Redentor is a 98-foot-tall statue, atop a 27-foot-tall plinth, on top of a 2300-foot-tall mountain
//the only paths to the statue are a staircase and a set of escalators
///anyone able to tear it down by hand, or with a pickup truck and winch, deserves the success

Actually, there have been quite a few statues torn down that probably would not have been had the vandals known who the person was.  But that of course only works to prove how stupid the "statues teach history" argument is.

Proof that God hates bad art.

Every year there's an earthquake in Italy that threatens an important Renaissance fresco in a church somewhere, and it comes through unscathed.  But that styrofoam drowning Jesus thing halfway from Dayton to Cinci burned down not even a decade after it was built.

King Something: It's almost as if Trump and his supporters think BLM protesters are indiscriminately tearing down random statues just for the sake of tearing down statues, as opposed to tearing down specific statues because of those particular statues' inherently racist iconography.


Yes.  They seem to think that BLM and "antifa" are tearing down pretty much all statues of anything patriotic or religious, because they hate America and God and are evil Communists.

. . .and I'm not exaggerating on this one.

Then again, that's the way it's being treated in right-wing media, that evil BLM protesters tore down another patriotic statue of some great American hero because he was supposedly racist or something.

The fact that they are told that the Civil War was over "state's rights" and not slavery has something to do with it, they don't see Confederates as being racists. . .after all, slavery "just happened" to be a thing in the CSA that really didn't have much to do with the war, it was all about "state's rights" that the North was violating. . .or so they say.

Therefore the Confederates weren't racists, they were proud patriots standing up for "State's Rights", and anyone

Remember, these folks aren't seeing the same media we are.  They're watching FOX News, they're reading right-wing blogs and websites and Facebook feeds, they're listening to talk radio. . .they're living in a parallel world where coronavirus is harmless and an over-exaggerated "hoax', where climate change isn't real and is just a scam for scientists to get more grant money and for China to hurt the US economy, where Trump is a brave and brilliant leader that is widely loved and respected and has made America widely respected around the world after the disgrace of the Obama era, and the only reason the ACA didn't lead to Death Panels and DMV-style Obamacare clinics is that the GOP stopped that from happening.

. . .the common clay of the new west and all that.  . .

Aw, c'mon you guys.
Statues teach HISTORY, not GEOGRAPHY!

But really....like we needed more evidence?  Not only is their grasp of "history" deeply flawed, so too is their knowledge of geography.  And art.  And science.  And math.  And English.  And phys-ed.  Also music, theatre arts, Home-Ec, and on down the list.

That "painting" makes no damned sense.  The entire point of Jesus even incarnating was to die.  Willingly.  Him busting out is both contrary to basic Christology, as well as deeply blasphemous.

My parents took me to this when I was younger. We had to park very far away and we were walking towards it with a ton of other people.  We got to where we could see it's head and arms sticking out above the tree line and I asked is that it? And they said yes. So, I asked if we could leave and they were so proud of me, we left and went to get ice cream.
