Uhhh, so the conspiracy theorist and PizzaGate pusher who Trump retweeted the other day, Jack Posobiec, has apparently joined a few Trump supporters in front of the statue of Lenin in Fremont, demanding that it be "torn down." He was just Periscoping the whole thing a few moments ago.
The Stranger's resident philosopher Charles Mudede says he's "honestly not a fan of the statue," and calls it "an object of quirk, not of Marxism."
This isn’t the first time poor Lenin has faced criticism. Back in 2014, Mudede reported that someone put a black bag over Lenin’s head and painted his hand red.
A reporter at the scene told me that the Posobiec and the small number of Trump followers have left the scene. Lenin still stands.
