As previously reported, the petition has been started to remove Robert E. Lee’s statue and replace it with GWAR icon Oderus Urungus, aka the late Dave Brockie.
Even though the petition has already reach 36,000 signatures at the moment of this writing, GWAR drummer JiZMak decided to stir the things up even more.
JiZMak walked across the street to greet a scattered group of people who had congregated around the heavily vandalized memorial of the General, as seen in the video at the bottom of the page. With a roar, he exclaimed, “GWAR IS HERE!”
“I’m critiquing the artwork, it’s looking pretty great right now — it’s looking great,” JiZMak said, admiring what Black Lives Matters protestors had done to the statue. Someone shouted back, “I think you’re the one going on top, aren’t you?”
“There’s a petition to put GWAR on that horse instead of Robert E. Lee! I strongly encourage that everyone sign that petition online. F*ck that guy!”, he added.
