New York City’s American Museum of Natural History has successfully lobbied Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio to remove an 80-year-old bronze statue of Theodore Roosevelt.

The statue will come down amid nationwide riots propelled by anarchists (RELATED: These States Are Prosecuting Rioters). The impetus for removing the iconic monument, you ask? An American Indian and a black man are walking alongside President Roosevelt on horseback. Activists claim the depiction implies Roosevelt is subjugating minorities.

Per WCBS 880 NEWSROOM:

“The American Museum of Natural History has asked to remove the Theodore Roosevelt statue because it explicitly depicts Black and Indigenous people as subjugated and racially inferior,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. “The City supports the Museum’s request. It is the right decision and the right time to remove this problematic statue.”

The museum’s president, Ellen V. Futter, said in an interview that “the time has come to move it.”

“Over the last few weeks, our museum community has been profoundly moved by the ever-widening movement for racial justice that has emerged after the killing of George Floyd,” Futter said.

President Donald Trump reacted to the decision on Twitter writing, “Ridiculous, don’t do it!”

Other “controversial” statues anarchists have desecrated/torn down in recent weeks under the guise of racial justice include those of George Washington, Winston Churchill, and Abraham Lincoln.

The poor, poor, poor black man has to have something to cry about or no one will give him any attention.

I am part of all the above and never considered the Statue as a symbol of conquering blacks and Indians I saw it as the leader of a majority joining with other peoples to form a better Nation.

It’s way past time to start arresting these rioter who want to destroy our historical statues. It is a clear violation of property destruction. If the idiots in charge vote to remove them, that is another issue and they can be taken down, but not destroyed. At some point in the future, saner people may want to put them back up.
