Exactly As Trump Predicted: ‘Racist’ Jefferson Statue To Be Removed At NYC Council

History is being systematically erased and rewritten while media clowns pretend it isn’t happening

A 200-Year-Old Thomas Jefferson statue is to be removed from the chambers of the New York City council after a unanimous vote by the nine members of the Mayoral appointed Public Design Commission.

Several lawmakers testified that the statue is ‘offensive’, with Democratic Assemblyman Charles Barron of Brooklyn even declaring that Jefferson was a “slaveholding pedophile.” 

Barron added “I think it should be put in storage somewhere, destroyed or whatever.”

Barron continued, “How the hell can people see as a hero someone who had hundreds of enslaved Africans, someone who was a racist and who said we were inferior and someone who was a slaveholding pedophile?”

He further proclaimed that “For [Jefferson] to be canonized in a statue is incredible — incredibly racist.”

The New York Post notes that in 1834 the statue was given to the city by Uriah Phillips Levy, “the nation’s first Jewish Naval commodore and an admirer of Jefferson’s belief in religious freedom.”

The New York Times notes of the statue that “The painted plaster version was later donated to New Yorkers and arrived at City Hall around 1834. When it first arrived in New York, Levy charged to view it and used the proceeds to feed the poor. It was installed in the City Council Chamber in the 1910s.”

A local ABC affiliate reports that the statue is “expected to go on ‘long term loan’ to the New-York Historical Society by the end of the year, where it would be included in educational exhibits with the proper historical context that likely will include discussion of Jefferson’s slave ownership.”

NYC Mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa expressed opposition to the move, asking “Do we suddenly wipe out the images, the markings, the names of all those great patriots because they were slaveholders and slave holding was quite common at that time?”

Republican City council member Joe Borelli also accused NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio of waging a “progressive war on history.” 

“The de Blasio administration will continue the progressive war on history as he, himself, fades away into a portrait on a City Hall wall,” the Staten Island member told the New York Post. 

Back in 2017, after statues of Confederate figures were targeted, President Trump predicted that soon enough it would be statues of Jefferson and Washington that would face the axe.

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself: ‘Where does it stop?’” Trump asked at the time.

The media said Trump was overreacting and pointing to a ‘false slippery slope’.

John Oliver devoted an entire segment to mocking Trump over the statement:

Wrong.

Trump was 100% correct.

Again.

It hasn’t stopped. History is being systematically erased.

Earlier this year we reported on the woke mob succeeding in influencing a MUSEUM in New York to remove a statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt.

    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?
