A friend of the Brigade observed: "I'd be tempted to wrap some det cord around the whole damn thing and let them pick up the pieces." NOT that there's anything wrong with statues encouraging hero-worship of murderers: America! What a Country!
And Jack Kemp at American Thinker adds: (The three statues on display... Julius Ceasar, the "Anthropomorphic cabinet woman" (from a Dali painting) and Che Guevera were all inspired by Barcelona street performers.
