MUSEUM To Remove Statue Of President Theodore Roosevelt

Erasing history altogether.

Not content with defacing and pulling down statues of founding fathers and former presidents, the woke mob has now succeeded in influencing a MUSEUM in New York to remove a statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt.

The reasoning behind the move according to the American Museum of Natural History in New York, is that the statue, which features Roosevelt on horseback, with an African man and a Native American man at either side, could be construed as representing a “racial hierarchy”.

In a statement, the museum said “The statue was meant to celebrate Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) as a devoted naturalist and author of works on natural history. Roosevelt’s father was one of the Museum’s founders, and the Museum is proud of its historic association with the Roosevelt family.”

“At the same time, the statue itself communicates a racial hierarchy that the Museum and members of the public have long found disturbing.” the statement continues.

The move appears to have been spurred by a previous incident in 2017, when protesters smeared “blood” on the statue and published a statement calling for its removal as an emblem of “patriarchy, white supremacy and settler-colonialism.”

The decision seems bizarre, given that the museum made a point of saying it feels there is no problem with Roosevelt in general, just the statue.

Indeed, the museum has several areas named after Roosevelt, including Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall, the Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda and Theodore Roosevelt Park directly outside.

The museum also announced that it will rename its Hall of Biodiversity after Roosevelt as a nod to the former president’s work as a conservationist.

“It’s very important to note that our request is based on the statue, that is the hierarchical composition that’s depicted in it,” said The museum’s president, Ellen V. Futter.

“It is not about Theodore Roosevelt who served as Governor of New York before becoming the 26th president of the United States and was a pioneering conservationist,” Futter added.

The move comes as antifa leftists and BLM agitators continue to target statues nation-wide, having already pulled down statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ulysses S. Grant, Francis Scott Key, and Christopher Columbus among others.

Meanwhile, a clip of John Oliver mocking President Trump in 2017 for warning that Washington and Jefferson statues would be targeted next is re-surfacing online:

‘Golden Demon’ Statue Placed Atop New York Courthouse to Honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Abortion

A new state-sanctioned desecration of our heritage just dropped.

The demon statue to honor Ginsberg sticks out like a sore thumb. 

“The image of justice as a woman has been present for centuries, but women only gained juridical voice in the last one,” Pakistani-born Shahzia Sikander said her artist’s statement. “Despite years of women’s struggle for legal socio-economic and political equality, gender bias still continues to create barriers for many women, whether it is health and education rights, equal economic opportunities, gender-based violence and race, or class discrimination.”

What were the “barriers” stopping you from having this monstrosity placed atop the courthouse? 

There are no barriers to anything anymore — that’s why giant piles of garbage are desecrating all of our public spaces.

Contrast Sikander’s garbage heap with the original work of art designed by James Brown Lord:

We need more barriers to protect our heritage, not less. One would think plain old shame would serve as a “barrier” to prevent such desecrations but our ruling elites are clearly utterly shameless.

Video: More Idiots Allowed To Damage Priceless Art In Latest ‘Climate Protest’

Why were they allowed to return for a photo op?

More ‘climate change activists’ were allowed to vandalise a valuable artwork in Milan, Italy Sunday in the latest display of pointless attention seeking adolescent petulance.

Three youths and an older woman from a group that calls itself ‘Last Generation’ managed to throw flour all over a Andy Warhol piece, before being incomprehensibly allowed to return to the scene and sit cross legged on the ground next to the work like stubborn toddlers refusing to play nice.

The work they targeted was Warhol’s BMW Art Car, a painted sports car from 1979 that resides in Milan’s Fabbrica del Vapore.

The group had planned to glue themselves to the car windows, but were dragged away before they had the chance, according to reports.

Further footage shows they were, however, brought back to sit in front of the car for the media.

The elder woman, a university researcher wearing a shirt on which was scrawled “we have 858 days left,” stated that “staying in the classroom or in workshop with my students without trying everything possible to get governments to do their part has become unbearable to me,” further declaring that she was helping “the last generation on the face of the planet that can still do something.”

BMW’s cultural engagement department issued a response noting “Art is as priceless as it is untouchable. It belongs to all of humanity and reflects the great achievements of which each of us is capable. Andy Warhol’s 1979 Art Car is a unique masterpiece and we have no sympathy for a violent attack on the artist’s work defaced for many decades.”

As we highlighted last week, dozens of museums issued a statement condemning the attacks and stating that they are “deeply shaken by their risky endangerment.”

The culprits believe that attention-seeking to propagandize for climate change activism, a cause amplified by virtually every major media outlet, corporation, the entertainment industry, cultural institution, government and academia, is some kind of rebellious, edgy statement.

It isn’t.

How about the vandals do us all a favour and go after this shit instead?
