    Look for that statue to reappear somewhere in Chicago with Obama’s head.

    • Ha!

      Maybe China will give it to the fledgling, “fundamentally transformed” United States of America and they will modify it somehow with Lady Liberty to welcome new Americans.

    At first sight I took it to be one of the Great Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Republic of North Korea.
    But, having Googled, I found they already had plenty.

    With all the advances in scanning and 3D modeling there is just no excuse for such a crappy likeness. The boxy shoes and trousers are typical of crushing fascistic sculpture.Tearing it down is a mercy. The good news is the enormous head could be repurposed as a chicken coop.

    Saw off the head and replace it with Obastard

    I think it’s simply stunning. It really shows the true essence of the cult of personality like no other edifice. They should leave it and in honour of their Chairman engrave the names of the 45 million people his great leap forward benefited the most.
