First thoughts on toppling confederate statutes is .   

LOOKOUT.  
You wouldn't want a statue falling on you. 


Second thoughts. 
Picture  a loud angry mob very carfully  removing  statutes  wraping them in bubble wrap and puttihg them in creates.  

Third thought. 
STATUTES  LIVES MATTER.

Erecting statutes these days must take alot of planning . 

So one has to think it is getting much more elusive  to be memorized so to speak , in status form. 

If this removal of the sketchy statutes  people continues.  And the much looked into knew statutes slow down.    in like 100 or 200 years time.   Only the true absolute  finest of people will be statue ated. 
You know what i mean.  
Statues / monuments  will be realllll credible and of much more importance  .
More ( visited  ) can i say.  
And maybe worshipped.   

In 100 years time they will have a evil villian,  statue  non-memorial  park.  
A place for all these toppled statues to rest. 


Soooooooooooooooo.   STATUES ARE BECOME BETTER PEOPLE.

The south lost. Should we be celebrating losers by making statues of them?

"I think it wiser not to keep open the sores of war but to follow the examples of those nations who endeavored to obliterate the marks of civil strife, to commit to oblivion the feelings engendered."
