More purging of American culture

Yet another statue of a former US President has been deemed ‘racist’ and was covered up with a tarp Monday, ready to be removed altogether from the MUSEUM where it has stood since 1940.

The statue depicts Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States on horseback.

Earlier in the year, the American Museum of Natural History in New York, decided that because the statue has a Native American and black man walking alongside Roosevelt, it could be construed as representing a “racial hierarchy,” and it should be removed and archived.

The statue will be on ‘indefinite loan’ to the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora, North Dakota, which is not scheduled to open until 2026.

In a previous statement, the New York 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.

There has been a general attempt by leftist protesters to paint up Roosevelt as a white supremacist who believed in eugenics.

The removal of the Roosevelt Statue comes on the heels of a statue of Thomas Jefferson that stood for almost 200 years being removed from New York City Hall after a minority of Mayoral appointees deemed it to be potentially offensive.

The statue was stuffed into a crate and lowered down to the ground floor of the building before being taken away to be mothballed because… ‘racism’.
