Excon's logic on Robert E Lee statues vs Vladimir Lenin statues
Robert E Lee
"When Virginia declared its secession from the Union in April 1861, Lee chose to follow his home state, despite his desire for the country to remain intact."
"Lee rejected the proposal of a sustained insurgency against the Union and called for reconciliation between the two sides."
"In 1865, Lee became president of Washington College (later Washington and Lee University) in Lexington, Virginia; in that position, he supported reconciliation between North and South."
"Lee opposed the construction of public memorials to Confederate rebellion on the grounds that they would prevent the healing of wounds inflicted during the war."
"Under his administration, Russia and then the wider Soviet Union became a one-party communist state governed by the Russian Communist Party. Ideologically a Marxist, he developed political theories known as Leninism."
"After his exile, he moved to Western Europe, where he became a prominent theorist in the Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party. Lenin later campaigned for the First World War to be transformed into a Europe-wide proletarian revolution, which as a Marxist he believed would cause the overthrow of capitalism and its replacement with Communism."
"He became an ideological figurehead behind Marxism–Leninism and thus a prominent influence over the international communist movement."
"Opponents were suppressed in the Red Terror, a violent campaign administered by the state security services; tens of thousands were killed or interned in concentration camps."
"critics on both the left and right emphasize his role as founder and leader of an authoritarian regime responsible for political repression and mass killings."
