While Lenin statues fall like autumn leaves in Ukraine, a statue of a very different historical can no longer be found in Buenos Aires.
Eight months ago, Argentine president Cristina Fernandez Kirchner, a great admirer of the Castro brothers, removed a statue of Christopher Columbus that stood within view of the Casa Rosada, her nation’s presidential residence.
Lashing out against “colonialism,” and linking Columbus to genocide, Kirchner said: “The first thing you have to do in order to colonize anyone is to convince them that they are worthless.”
In addition to trashing Columbus and demolishing his statue, Kirchner has now renamed the Columbus Room at the presidential palace. The new politically-correct name: “The Salon of Native Peoples.”
“We will henceforth highlight the history that no one would tell us about our culture, and learn about the civilization of native peoples.”
No word from President Kirchner about the colonialism now at work throughout Latrine America, which is directed by white men in Havana.
