It’s for the best. The rioters and heathens tore down Gen. Wickham’s statue in Richmond.

After a day and evening of peaceful protests and marches in Richmond and its suburbs, protesters using ropes pulled down a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Williams Carter Wickham, which has stood in the park since 1891.

Most of the protesters who had marched through the city Saturday night had already dispersed when the statue was taken down. After it fell, one person urinated on the statue and then ran away.

A perfectly-fitting metaphor for the fading days: piss on civilization and then run away. All those who proclaim hatred for the (better than them) Men of the West will regret it one day when their own idols crash down.

PS: would that rope around the statue’s neck count as a hate crime? Just asking.
