Leftists hate statues, but now they want to erect a statue of former mayor, Marion Berry.

He was a racist (hated whites and asians) anti-LGBT, a race-baiter, a crackhead, he routinely fucked prostitutes which was a crime on both sides and countless other things.


So, my question to leftists is this;  Why is it ok for someone like him to have a statue, then why are you so butthurt over other statues.

++++

We put Susan B Anthony (mother of the suffrage movement) on coins and give her statues, but she was a massive racist, sexist and elitist. 

Similar thing in the UK with Emmiline Pankhurst (mother of the feminist movement).   She was a massive racist, sexist and elitist.    Like feminists the world over, she never, ever believed in gender equality.    She still wanted men to do all the shit jobs and women to be kept on a pedestal.   She believed it was men's job to die on the battlefield to protect women, while women got to pick and choose what they wanted to do or not.

The founder of Planned Parenthood called blacks "weeds that need to be exterminated" but we must worship her.   


AGAIN, what is the leftist criteria for who gets a statue and who doesn't?

When you describe Susan B Anthony as a massive racist I begin to wonder, by massive, do you mean like big-time, majorly-in charge kind of massive racist... the kind that could easily answer anyone who demanded of her "Oh yeah Susan?.... You and wHaT army?"

Somehow the idea of Susan B Anthony enforcing her racism on others via her own personal army doesn't sound right. General Lee, now that fits better because, well, he had an army. Marion Barry had an army too, so to speak, but they weren't soldiers. As mayor, his army consisted of civil servants, social workers, city managers and attorneys. Anthony's army were suffragettes but unlike Lee and Mayor Barry's followers, her army had little actual power.

The enemies that Barry and Anthony waged conflict against were the kind of poverty that results from being treated differently. Barry's struggle was against the physical poverty of those in the black community treated poorly because of their skin color. Anthony's struggle was against the intellectual poverty of minds like her family members and peer group, who treated women differently because of their gender.

Both Barry and Anthony also faced themselves as enemies — Barry facing his own ugly demons of addiction — and Anthony facing her own ugly demons of racism. Despite facing their own demons, neither of them surrendered. They actively tried to change society towards the direction they thought it should be going in — women attaining votes where they had none and black people attaining economic security where there was none. Those Confederate military leaders after their surrender couldn't really claim to have had the same success with their goals, now could they?

That is some serious mental gymnastics to justify Marion Barry and Susan B Anthony being praised, while others are demonized.
