The difference is with the USA and their General Lee statues, is that those statues were mass-produced and deliberately put up as a sign of white supremacy, according to something I read on the internet.

Well, there's that, and they are also statues of freaking losers (in both the figurative and literal sense) that attacked and waged war against the country.   Angry

Ah well, Tasman got an island named after him, whereas all Cook got was a lousy statue Smiley

Shame they're not in the Tasman Sea.

"An oasis of freedom with ... authentic, friendly locals." Authentic as hell, I'll bet.

"Come share our Kia Orana spirit". They used to sell Kia-Ora orangey sugar drink in every cinema in the 50s and 60s. No sign of any spirit though.
