Too bad he's a creepy serial sexual abuser who gets a pass for the good things he's done and being a powerful man in general.

Elie Wiesel was a good man who represented the resilience of the Jewish community in the aftermath of one of the world's worst genocides. He deserves to be honored.

Iím not questioning his merits, I just donít see why valuable bandwidth is being wasted on Romanian monuments.

This is a noteworthy international news (on what is the international general discussion board), given that Weisel first discovered the existence of the death camps that were run directly by Romanians during the war. Which means Romania confronts its past in a pretty healthy manner, as opposed to the undersigned's government.

Speaking of the former, I haven't heard of this either, so I enlisted the help of Uncle Google and all I saw were some questionable "sources".

There have been plenty of young women who speak publicly, but he knows 22-year-olds donít get taken seriously. I know a few personally.

And there the problem lies. I never trust it when people who "know a few personally" slam and throw mud at someone, just like I (respectfully) don't believe Kingpolen's accusations against Bill Clinton- it's never objective. Until there are credible sources and accusations, I'm not going to participate in tarnishing the legacy of a great man and survivor.

Oh come on Sanchez. This is basically a cry for help. Just come out as alt-right and be done with it.

Let's rephrase it this way: would you care if they erected a statue of, say, Gandhi or Mother Theresa or Nelson Mandela in the capital city of Uzbekistan, would it get it's own thread?

Elie Wiesel was born in Romania, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and an influential American, the first of which negates your Uzbekistan comparison and the latter two of which lend themselves to being of interest to Atlas. The statue was unveiled on Romania's Holocaust remembrance day. Sure, it is not earthshattering news, but I really cannot see any reason to minimize this, especially considering you haven't had the compusion to so quickly wave off other news articles recently posted, some of which are far more obscure and insignificant.

Unless, that is, you're trying to minimize something else...

Also evidenced by the crystal clear language at the Holocaust memorial in Bucharest:
