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’.

    The Satanic Verses Sells In Droves After Salman Rushdie Attack

    Reviewer writes “Dear Mr. would-be assassin… Now a whole new generation will read it, all because you didn’t want it to be read by anyone”

    Sales of Salaman Rushdie’s infamous novel The Satanic Verses have skyrocketed following the horrific attack on the author last week, in a show of strength for free speech over Islamic extremism.

    The New York Post reports that Rushdie’s 1988 novel, for which he has received death threats ever since, soared to the top of multiple Amazon bestseller lists.

    The book hit number one in Contemporary Literature & Fiction, Fiction Satire and Humorous Literary Fiction.

    The audiobook version became the seventh best-seller in Amazon’s Audible store.

    The novel was also second bestseller in both the Politics & Social Science and the Self-Help & Psychology Humor categories on Tuesday, and the 26th best-selling book overall on Amazon’s US site.

    Rushdie’s other novels also saw a jump in sales.

    The Satanic Verses was deplored by extremists and declared blasphemous concerning its depiction of the Prophet Muhammad.

    One reviewer wrote “Hope this book becomes #1 bestseller again just as a big F*** you to religious extremists and sympathizers,” adding “I didn’t even know about this book before. So if the idea was to spread the author’s message in modern times, then they succeeded!”

    “I just bought this book in response to extremists who try to silence people. You will not win,” another reviewer added.

    A further reviewer wrote “Dear Mr. would-be assassin, this book is now back on the bestseller lists. You did that. You tried to silence Salman Rushdie for writing something you found offensive, and now that very work is going to be in more homes, read by more people than ever before.”

    The post continues, “This is what you have accomplished. This is the only thing you have ever accomplished, and the only thing you will ever accomplish.”

    “Funny thing, if there had never been a fatwa on Mr. Rushdie in the first place, how many people do you suppose would have ever even heard of this book? Now a whole new generation will read it, all because you didn’t want it to be read by anyone,” the reviewer concludes.
