Seems more than a little hypocritical to me. When a particular piece of art offends some one else, all art needs to be protected. When a particular piece of art offends me, it should be destroyed.

I’m not saying it isn’t hypocritical to a certain extent, just pointing out that many of the same folks who in the past have argued for certain artworks they found to be offensive to be censored now want to disregard the notion that some people find things they appreciate as offensive. Also, while easy to do, we shouldn’t necessarily conflate the monument issue with some sort of conservative v liberal political understanding.
