Didn't we already go through this once?

I talked about Freedom Park in Rosslyn, Virginia, and how one of the exhibits is an actual segment of the Berlin wall (nine complete sections) and an East German guard tower.

For the last couple of days, they've had the street blocked off so that they could remove those pieces of the wall and relocate them to the new home of the Newseum in downtown DC. Not that anyone asked me for my opinion, but I personally think those historic barriers belong in Freedom Park, not in a museum dedicated to news.

1 I bet they are trying to get credit for bringing down the wall.

2 I've been to the Newseum and I agree with you. Not that anyone asked me, either, but something like that would not "go" there at all. WTF?

4 Well actually it may be the perfect place for it.Most of the modern media is liberal biased.Liberals have a real boner for communism.Perhaps they put it there to remind themselves of their ultimate goal.Or,perhaps,they felt like any reminders of what communism means would be better off in some place where nobody's gonna go anyhow as apposed to standing in public for many to see.Sweep it under the carpet right on top of the Second Ammendment and any other law that doesn't suit their own greedy assed purpose.
Personally I think they should put it to good use and use it as a starting point to just build a new wall around D.C.Don't forget Prince Georges and Montgomery counties either.Any place that gives you a ticket for leaving your car idling in your own driveway or leaving Christmas presents in the same car because it "encourages crime" should be walled in.Watch out ladies!Don't wear that low cut thingy.If you get jumped walking home you may get a ticket for encouraging it.

5 Yeah that is sad. Everyday to and from work I walk past them. It is sad that they are so hidden in the first place. But it fits with how most people view history. They tend to forget it in some back alley or hidden corner.
