President Donald Trump asked how long it would be before the Left’s mania to tear down Confederate statues expanded to other historical American figures and asked if that would include presidents.
In his comments, Trump lamented the push to take down Confederate statues, “So, this week it’s Robert E. Lee,” Trump said. “I notice that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”
As if on cue, a pack of New York leftists set out to prove his point.
According to The Daily Wire over 200 self-proclaimed activists from New York organized by the far-left groups known as – NYC Stands with Standing Rock and Decolonize This Place – gathered inside New York’s American Museum of Natural History demanding the removal of its statue of… President Theodore Roosevelt.
“A stark embodiment of the white supremacy that Roosevelt himself espoused and promoted,” pontificated the group of protesters in a statement. “The statue is seen as an affront to all who pass it on entering the museum, but especially to African and Native Americans.”
Marching around the museum in a fit of self-righteous rage, protesters carried signs that read “BLACK LIVES MATTER,” “DECOLONIZE THIS MUSEUM,” and “ABOLISH WHITE SUPREMACY.”

This event was planned for three weeks in advance in an effort to allow the police the opportunity to set up the area, AFF reported.
“The group started with a 10-stop tour of the museum in which they highlighted a variety of exhibits they felt were racist and misrepresentative, which ranged from how the representation of Africans reinforces negative stereotypes to the exoticizing of Islam in the Hall of Islam exhibit.”
The left is now eating one of their own in their efforts to cleanse the American people of all their so called symbols of white supremacy.
The Federalist Papers said it best when she stated –
“History is messy. It’s full of great people who did terrible things, horrible people who did necessary things at critical moments, and everything in between. It’s also full of circumstances outside of which some — not all, but some — mistakes cannot be properly understood. And, of course, historical revisionism and misinformation muddy all these waters further still.
These are our Presidents of the United States, for God’s sake, and the idea that we would tear down the statue of any of them is ludicrous. The good and the bad about each man to hold the office are equally important to reflect on and be reminded of.”
History is full of great people who did terrible things, and horrible people who did necessary things at critical moments, and everything in between.
Nonetheless, these are our Presidents of the United States, and the idea that we would tear down the statue of any of them is beyond imaginable – yet here we are – and I fear that President Trump’s vision of making America great again will be marred by the blood of Patriots, old and new.
