If you’re going to accuse Robert the Bruce of being racist, why not the little mermaid?
Denmark woke up on Friday to the words “racist fish” scrawled across the base of the “Little Mermaid”, the bronze statue honouring Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairy tale that perches on a rock in the sea off a pier in Copenhagen.
Police said it had not yet identified the perpetrators. The 107-year-old sculpture, which is visited by one million tourists each year, has been vandalised before, including by anti-whaling campaigners and pro-democracy activists, twice suffering decapitation.
What’s racist about her? Except perhaps perceived race?
We’re far beyond any rational use of racism. The Black Lives Matter hate campaign has gone after statues of abolitionists, the Emancipation Memorial, and, in Europe, has swung into attacks on random statues, like Robert the Bruce, and the Little Mermaid, simply because the racist hate group is low on material and European countries have a lot more history.
So sure, every statue is racist now. Under critical race theory, it all upholds white supremacy which is defined as pretty much civilization. So it all must go.
