What do we have to do to get a post on the removal of your bete noire from his alma mater?

The reactionary/progressive alliance must be able to agree on something

I feel that it is intellectually dishonest to try an erase personages from school records/histories. Somewhat like our late adversaries the Russians creating "un-persons". Right now there is a mimic movement at Oxford to take down Cecil Rhodes' statue and "erase" him. This has already been done at the University of South Africa. Ironically (most ironically in my view) the chief proponent of this ugly movement is, upon detection, found to be a Rhodes scholar! Rhodes was a driven man. His doctors told him that his span was limited, hence he rode roughshod. Different times, different values.
