Barack Obama statue removed from Jakarta park

Authorities removed a statue of Barack Obama from a park in the Indonesian capital due to a public backlash and moved it Monday to a nearby elementary school that the U.S. president attended as a child.

I have a suggestion for what could replace the statue…

    I never did think that statue look anything like Obama.

    Notice that they did statue of him w/a butterfly. That’s an image one who expect to see for a girl.

    Hello Arlene!

    I am just worried about the poor kids that will be forced to look at it everyday.

  3. ohiobelle Says:

    Maybe Obama will just have it shipped to the White House so he can look at it everyday.

    Wow great lead story. If the Indonesians can figure that this guy is a total fraud, maybe the statue should be put in a land fill garbage are, where Obama the person belongs, I’m Jim

      I think the Indonesians already figured out Obama. Anytime a memorial or statue of a person or event is moved due to controversy, then the memory is on its way to being diminished.

      I used to see a bunch of folks wearing Obama t-shirts. But not any more. And all those chicken shacks & BBQ places that had Obama name on in in Texas…. well, they took his name down.

      Other day I went to federal building and noticed that the black history month display has downplayed Obama’s image. Instead of a real photo of him, they put up a barely recognizable crude drawing of him in the background. They put Thurgood Marshall pix to cover up Obama.

        Well said.
        It’s not the outside, it’s the inside.
        The inside can and will destroy what other people see on the outside.

    lol

    A far cry from his vision of a DC memorial in his honor ala Lincoln or his likeness added to Mt Rushmore…

    That bronze statuette with him as a child playing with a butterfly is a hoot.
    I am happy to see it removed and relocated to an obscure location and perhaps pigtails can be added to it to round out the context.

    I wonder how long it will take for Obama to place the statue in the White House, in place of the bust of Winston Churchill he had removed.
