The crazies on the Left just got a little more crazy!
Maybe it’s something in the water, or the solar eclipse tilted the earth off its axis, but some people in Minnesota want to replace a statue of Columbus with that of Prince.
Townhall has the details:
“Now that monuments and statues of Confederate figures have been dealt with, the next target for removal is apparently Christopher Columbus. In Maryland, a statue of Columbus was vandalized. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has said that they’re looking in to taking down their statue of Columbus, and in Minnesota, there’s even a petition drive to replace the statue of Columbus located at the State Capitol building with one of Prince, the Minnesota native recording artist who passed away in 2016.
The petition’s author Wintana Melekin says that “Prince represents Minnesota values and Columbus does not.”
And they tweeted about it:
Petition to remove MN's Columbus statue from the state capitol and replace it with a Prince statue! https://t.co/9esPRYEwzn

“I spend a lot of time at our State Capitol. It’s a space that already does not feel inviting or inclusive to communities of color. So to see Columbus every day in front of the building does not make it feel more welcoming. So I put the petition together because I wanted to see someone, Prince, at the capitol because he represents a part of Minnesota that we are all proud of,” she stated.
The funny thing: Melekin assumes everyone in Minnesota agrees that Prince represents their values.
Is that true? Doubtful.
Stay tuned folks. It’s not likely the left is willing to give up on this crazy statue thing anytime soon.
There’s bound to be similar events in the future.
