Checkpoint Charlie Goes Down The Memory Hole

Dennis Prager once wrote, “As a famous Soviet dissident joke put it: “In the Soviet Union, the future is known; it’s the past which is always changing.”

That goes for former Soviet satellite nations as well. We linked last week to a post by David Medienkritik, who noted that Checkpoint Charlie, which memorializes the 1,065 killed trying to cross the Berlin Wall, was scheduled to be demolished on July 4th. (Interesting choice of dates…)

In a post with several photos of the event, Gateway Pundit writes that that schedule was sadly met.
