Old Lenin stands tall in Seattle.
He is the main source of the battle.
Meanwhile statues come down
of great men of renown.
Bewildered we look, like dumb cattle.
Over the past few weeks, scores of statues of our founding fathers and Generals, Cristóbal Colón, Junípero Serra , and even the Pioneer and the Pioneer Mother have been toppled by rioters. They will not stop until all historic memorials are demolished, like what happened in the onset of theFrench Revolution, the Russian Revolution or the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
The death toll from the French Revolution was about 40,000, from the Russian Revolution 7 to 12 million, and from the Cultural Revolution up to 20 million, followed by the Great Leap Forward, which heralded in the Great Famine, killing another 30 Million.
These are serious times.
