Petition to Remove Statue of Murderer Stalin from D-Day Memorial

There has been a lot of anger over the inclusion of a statue of Joseph Stalin, Russia’s murderous WWII dictator, in our National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia.As a result of that anger a petition has been started to remove the Stalin celebration from the National D-Day Memorial.

Thousands of Americans feel that including a statue celebrating the life of this monster is the wrong way to go about memorializing Russia’s sacrifice during WWII and they want the statue pulled down.

Others, though, say that if we pull down the statue we are whitewashing history. After all, they say, we have statues to the other Allied leaders and excluding Stalin just makes no sense.

I disagree with those that think we must memorialize Stalin in order to be true to a valid accounting of history. What should have been done to memorialize Russia’s dear sacrifice during WWII was to recognize the nation’s effort without building a statue to one of the worst murderers in human history. The statue should have been of Russia itself, not Stalin.

It simply galls to have a statue to one of humanities worst criminals on the soil of one of the world’s freest nations. Joseph Stalin has oceans of blood on his hands and we should not be celebrating his life.

Citizen’s Petition to Remove the Stalin Statue from the National D-Day Memorial

I, the undersigned, STAND for the memory of all the Allied troops of the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Poland, Australia, and Norway who gave their lives on D-Day or in the ensuing combat on the Western Front.

I STAND for the American veterans currently living in the State of Virginia, and in all other States, who survived D-Day, risking their lives to liberate Western Europe from tyranny.

I AFFIRM that the true history of World War II must be protected from distortion and misinformation which threaten to erase or alter well-established and documented facts.

I RECOGNIZE, on the basis of overwhelming historical evidence, that neither Joseph Stalin nor Soviet forces played any part in the D-Day landings at Normandy.

I AFFIRM that a bust of Joseph Stalin has no place at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia, whose stated purpose is to “honor the valor, fidelity, and sacrifice of Allied forces on D-Day,” June 6, 1944, and that a Stalin statue should not be displayed with statues of the leaders of the Western Allies responsible for the triumph of D-Day.

I therefore PETITION the Officers and Board of Directors of the National D-Day Memorial Foundation to remove the bust of Stalin from the grounds of the Memorial immediately; I further PETITION Interior Secretary Kenneth Salazar to ensure that if the National D-Day Memorial should come under the National Park Service, no bust or statue of Stalin will be included or allowed; in so acting, the National D-Day Memorial Foundation and Interior Secretary Salazar will safeguard the sacred memory of D-Day for ourselves, our veterans, and future generations.
