Gorilla Statue Removed After Complaints It Was ‘Racially Insensitive’ - Update: The Gorilla is being put back now.
A statue of a gorilla, and prime attraction for kids at the Community Park playground in Corsicana was removed by the city.

A spokesperson for the city said some community members found the gorilla offensive – racially insensitive — in some form, and requested its removal from the park.

“We can understand this, because we have an obligation to listen to all our citizens, to determine what is offensive and not, especially in public places,” said Corsicana Mayor Don Denbow.

Denbow saw an uptick in complaints about the playground primate during the last few weeks. There were more and more phone calls, and personal discussions, and he, the city manager and a city council member, decided it needed to come down.

In exchange for a better future.

I would like all sloths on the planet nuked because they resemble me in the morning and I find that deeply offensive.
I don't know what lies they told you, but I can promise they were lies.

Silencing yourself and living in the dark just means you've left yourself exposed to the type of people who wander the dark looking for victims who won't scream.

Actually, a lot of stupid liberals have been pushing the idea that it's mean and unkind to place animals in zoos.

Keep in mind that Germany's infamous leader of the 1930s - the guy with the little mustache - was a big supporter of animals rights and a vegan diet. He didn't like humans thinking of animals as a source of food.

Beware of humans similar to Germany's former leader (its current one too) who have about as much logic and ethics as that of a lemming.

Most people of the left have about as much logic and ethics as that of a lemming.

Sooo... animals are now racially insensitive these days? Wow... I just logged in for the day and already today's turning into utter crap. How much longer before ALL the animals must be slaughtered in the name of Lucifer or Satan before these utterly insane people themselves are "properly" dealt with?
