That would be a fitting tribute, Subby, but one thing you never want to get behind is an Oderus movement.

The statue will be placed in storage at a state-owned facility until a decision is made on what exactly to do with it.

Do you find something... risible?

I have a very great friend in Richmond name Oderus... Urungus.

Recast it into a statue of Booker T Washington, he was a VA native.

The screeching would rival that of a stadium full of banshees.

This. Melt it down, and if any of the metal is reusable, use it to build a statue to commemorate and honor some Civil Rights figure. Or at the very least, some cool animal. Ooh, or maybe a statue of Lee getting his shiat kicked in by Grant and Sherman.

History isn't something that radical Leftist can eliminate in 3-4 years. The Bobby Lee statue will be back in place within 15 years.

No one can eliminate history, but one can easily keep traitors and slavers from having places of honor in the present.

Who will be governing that territory in 15 years?  If it is the Confederacy, then I suppose there will be a statue of Robert E. Lee.  If it is the United States of America, there won't be.  If it is China, someone else entirely.

If they want to preserve history they can put up a statue of Grant, Sherman, or Lincoln.

Good use of the phrase "radical left" there.  I had no idea anyone who doesn't want to suck Nazi cock was a leftist, useful reference point.

Not in Richmond, but elsewhere in Virginia, the high school I attended was at the time called Robert E Lee High School.

That school is now John R Lewis High School and I couldn't be more pleased.

More of this kind of thing, yes.

Are you really so starved for attention that the derisive replies of total strangers on the internet are worth pretending to be colossally stupid?

You are pretending, right?

I watched a video of the remaining members of Gwar, and how they wanted to put up a statue of Oderus, but they couldn't because of Dave Brockie's dad. After he died, the band did a t shirt fundraiser to get money to pay for the statue. Once his dad found out how much money they were getting, he started to go after them legally. The band paid for the entire funeral, and his dad didn't do anything. His dad also left his mother, because Brockie's older brother was gay, and was dying from AIDS. I guess Brockie's dad died, and they are planning on putting up the Oderus statue.

I had a crisis when I realized it's only 2 Heys, not 3. It's Hey Heeeeeeyy, Goodbye. You can see that as part of the song title.

I was listening to an oldies station earlier in the week and that song came on and I cranked it up. It is not only a great song musically but also in the production and sound. It rocks out.

The statues are all being stored at the waste water treatment plant. They can be seen, under thier tarps, from I-95 south.

Exactly, that's what should be done with all the confederate statues. But I'd argue that we should keep the heads off of each of the statues, and put them all in a big pile together in a museum somewhere.

They ended up putting a cenotaph for Dave in Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond.

Well, that sucks. I'm lucky to have had a chance to meet Dave (and other band members) a number of times after shows here at a place called The Vogue, and will never forget how his eyes lit up when I asked him to autograph a copy of his book Whargoul. The shirt hanging on my wall was signed by him a Cory Smoot on October 30th of 2011.

I am torn on this one.  I lived in Richmond for a few years. The fact that you couldn't walk down the streets without tripping over some Confederate detritus was part of its essential character.

Richmond without all the failed separatist history is just another third rate mid-Atlantic highway junction.

The former Capital of the Confederacy seems to me one of the right places to leave the history of the post-civil war movement intact. My notion is that we may want to keep some of those things there so future kids can see what confederate apologists actually did.

/Of course, future people without context may learn the wrong lessons from such displays
