And that is massive stain on the city. I hope somebody blows up that offensive murder monument.

How many times does it need to be said that's not a statue of Lenin before it sinks in to some? Or is this simply a matter of trying the "repeat a lie enough times and it becomes a turth" doctrine?

It isn't a statue of Lenin?

That would be a surprise to the sculptor who made it and to the Czechoslovakian and Soviet governments who commissioned it.

If I recall correctly (it's been a while since I've been to Fremont), it says RIGHT ON THE DAMN PLAQUE that it's just a sculpture of a random seamen.

They are liberal fascists. The term liberal must be included as the genesis of their very ideology is based in far left liberalism.

Right.....I am not sure why a small mass murderer like Hitler is condemned in history, while the mega mass murderers like Lenin, Stalin, and Mao are given a pass.

There is nothing funny about Lenin. Fremont should be ashamed. At least they need to cover the statue with red paint for all the blood of all the people killed by his hand.

Not at all. Fascist/progressive and liberal are opposites. Fascist/progressives have called themselves liberal because the word 'fascist' is negative due to a war we had with their European ideological cousins. They are not liberals! Also stupid conservatives have been mislabeling fascist/progressives as a liberal. Those folks should start using the correct terminology.

The descendents of Lenin, Stalin and Mao's victims aren't as media savvy.

A liberal fascist is like a conservative communist.
