SORE LOSERS RALLY IN NYC WANT AN 1892 CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS STATUE REMOVED…PATHETIC LIBS, GET A LIFE!
Christopher Columbus statue was offered as a gift to New York by the city’s Italian community in 1892. Now the sore losers are on rampage and want the statue gone. The NYC left-wing nutty mayor Bill De Blasio also put the statue under review as ‘symbol of hate.’
Groups such as the NYPD Columbia Association, which includes thousands of Italian American police officers, are fighting to keep the statue in place.
Comedian Joe Piscopo also spoke out about leaving the historical monument right where it is at the rally attended by politicians, individuals and community groups
‘The one iconic symbol for Italian-Americans was Christopher Columbus. He’s flawed, we’re all flawed — hey, I’m flawed. Does that mean I’m not gonna get a rest stop named after me on the Jersey Turnpike?’ he said. ‘Stop the political correctness. The political correctness is killing us.’
From Daily Mail :
A rally was held in New York by those who wish to see the removal of a statue of Christopher Columbus from where it has stood since the 1800’s.
The statue is currently under review by a special task force implemented by Mayor Bill de Blasio designed to remove ‘symbols of hate’ in New York City.
Friday night, demonstrators took to Columbus Circle where the statue is prominently displayed in a busy round-about at the base of Central Park, carrying signs that read: ‘Columbus didn’t discover America he invaded it.’

Left-wing vandals smashed a 225-year old monument to Christopher Columbus in Baltimore early Monday morning. The edifice is documented as the oldest still standing in the nation dedicated to the explorer, the Baltimore Brew first reported.
The monument is located directly across the street from Herring Run Park, northeast of Lake Montebello. It was built by Frenchman Chevalier d’Anemours, or d’Anmour, at Belmont, his 50-acre estate near Harford Road and North Avenue.
