Yeah, well, the same thing--more or less--has already happened in 
Russia, the nation that symbolizes anti-imperialism to the soft-headed left.

All monuments of Lenin to be removed from Russian cities

Russian lawmakers believe it is time to remove monuments to the leader 
of the Bolshevik Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, from town and city squares 
across the country.

Memorials to such “a controversial figure” should be re-located in 
museums or alleys with statues of other historic persons, suggested the 
author of the initiative, Liberal-Democratic party (LDPR) Deputy 
Aleksandr Kurdyumov.

The idea of “De-Leninization” was welcomed by some  members of the 
ruling United Russia party, writes Izvestia daily.
