Videos: Jefferson Statue Stuffed In A Crate And Removed From NY City Hall

Footage is a perfect analogy for the cultural and political destruction of America

A statue of Thomas Jefferson that has stood for almost 200 years was removed from New York City Hall Monday after a minority of Mayoral appointees deemed it to be potentially offensive.

Footage of the statue being removed was shared widely.

It was secured with straps and lifted by chains:

The statue was then placed into a crate and lowered down to the ground floor of the building:

The statue will be relocated to the New York Historical Society after nine members of the Mayoral appointed Public Design Commission voted in October to remove it.

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

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

The statue will likely be included in educational exhibits with the ‘proper’ historical context that likely will include discussion of Jefferson’s slave ownership.

People who tried to watch the removal of the statue were initially told that they had no right to be there:

As we previously noted, 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.

    Watch: Musk Warns Bill Maher ‘Woke Mind Virus’ Is Existential Threat To Civilization

    “I, at least, think of myself as a moderate,” Elon Musk told Bill Maher during an appearance Friday night on the comedian’s HBO show.

    Despite being decried by all asunder as a ‘far-right conservative operative’ or some such hyperbole, Musk said:

    “I spent a massive amount of my life energy building sustainable energy, you know, electric vehicles, and batteries, and solar. It’s not exactly far-right.”

    Musk made his opinion clear a year ago – he hasn’t changed, the world has…

    And somehow in all this divisive bullshit, ‘allowing’ free speech has become a virtue of the far-right, the enablers of violence, the fascists

    “Free speech used to be a left or liberal value, and yet we see from the quote ‘left’ a desire to actually censor, and that seems crazy.”

    “I think we should be extremely concerned about anything that undermines the First Amendment,” Musk said.

    More explicitly regarding his acquisition or, and changes made at, Twitter, Musk said:

    “My concern with Twitter was to that it is somewhat of the digital town square and it’s important that there be both the reality and perception of trust for a wide range of viewpoints.

    Maher responded that he does not tweet any more because “it’s too easy to get canceled” by a mob.

    “Because you may be the mayor of tweet town now and I’m glad – I like it that the mayor likes my jokes – but the reason I don’t do it anymore is because the mob of mean girls is still there and that has not changed. 

    Like, it’s too easy to get canceled and I don’t even know what pisses them off: they’re so nuts, these kids. 

    I feel like I’m walking on a roof with a blind fold: I could fall off anytime, that was the most innocuous thing, but it’s like, you know, I said George Washington was a great president – oh how dare you,” Maher continued.

    You have to say, like, what does canceled mean? You know – I mean, yes, if people attack you on Twitter that’s one thing – but frankly that’s just going to increase engagement. So I would just ignore it,” Musk replied somewhat prosaically.

    And so Maher stepped it up a little more:

    “You have talked about this woke mind virus in really apocalyptic terms,” Maher asked Musk

     “I don’t – you should explain why you don’t think it’s hyperbole to say things like it’s pushing civilization towards suicide. First of all, what is the woke mind virus?”

    Musk responded much more clearly this time:

    “I think we need to be very cautious about anything that is anti-meritocratic and anything that results in the suppression of free speech,” Musk said.

    “So, those are two of the aspects of the woke mind virus that I think are very dangerous, is that it’s often very anti-meritocratic, and you can’t question things. Even the questioning is bad.”

    Maher agreed, and asked Musk where he thinks this ‘woke mind virus’ originated from:

    “I was trying to figure out where it’s coming from. I think it’s actually been a long time brewing, in that it’s – I think it’s been going on for a while, and the amount of indoctrination that’s happening in schools and universities is I think far beyond what parents realize,” Musk said.
