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.


“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.

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    1. I made $81,000 so far this year working online and I’m aade such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out  full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve mabout it. Here’s what I’ve been doing………………….Read More Join Here      

  3. They don’t care, they just want to riot, burn and loot. They don’t care a person died, that an excuse.

  4. All this fuss over the statues. These idiots claim it’s in the name of equal justice. All the while they are driving a wedge among us. “Diversity”? Let’s call it what it is, SEGREGATION. They are trying to tear America down by dividing us WE ARE ALL AMERICANS. Once they comprehend that fact, then we can truly come together as a nation.
    And no party is better at it than the Democratic party. Please wake up America.

  5. As President Trump said, this is ridiculous! One can not change history. We can, and should, change some things for the future. Slaves are a FACT of history, perhaps something we are not proud of now, but they still are a fact, which has been corrected. Should we take George Washington off the dollar bill? If someone out there hates him so much I’d be glad to take all your paper money you no longer want. I support those who exercise their free speech by peacefully protesting. I do not support those who loot and destroy and I hope they are caught and prosecuted. We need to take a breath and support each other peacefully.

  6. Our nation has been temporarily transformed into a stupid, incoherent, foul gaggle of delinquents unable to differentiate between image and reality. As a member of the minority of men and women who are free to walk and think as we like, I believe we should meet face to face with these germs and adjust their attitudes. They’re obviously dangerous to peaceful people and should be treated as such.

  7. And of course my comment is awaiting moderation so you probably won’t see it. I’m done here.

  8. Democrats are destroying America’s history and culture. We are rapidly becoming a country without a past and that will lead to being a country without a future. These Democrats rioting in the streets are looking to take over the US and create their “Utopia.” We will all suffer for this.

  9. I guess the museum should be renamed The National Museum of FAKE History. Shame on them, they bow to a group of people who are raging fools and make no sense at all. But because they’re loud and threatening the goody-two-shoes outfits of the world give them what they want. When they need money maybe next time they should ask the raging fools for funding.

  10. In plain, reasonably polite English, museum officials who folded before the onslaught of vandals should be fired RDN, which translates as Right Damned Now.

  11. As to the sneak thieves who did harm, if found, they should be arrested, charged and face court trial for their antics, during which they would have the opportunity to explain and defend their actions.

  12. We need to morons that are currently running the major cities in this country relieved of their offices and put in jail for supporting terrorists. The terrorists need to be shot on sight with no prisoners taken. As long as the communists/terrorists in this country continue to try to remove and erase our history, there needs to be no prisoners taken, only bodies counted. All of our statues of our great American heroes need to be left alone. The communists need to be erased.

  13. When you let communist groups like Antifa and BLM destroy your integrity, you look like fools.

  14. Patience brothers, the water is boiling but not over the edge, soon the Communist party here in America will make a move that will drive American constitutionalists to take up arms in much the same way our brothers before us did.

  15. Shame on this country before allowing a fringe group like this destroy the history of this country. Stand bye and let it happen is just like agreeing with them. They should be stopped and prosecuted.

  16. Satan is cracking the whip. His slaves are protesting, rioting, looting, and pillaging. Now they are taking down statures. No one is being arrested thus far because Democrat Governors and Mayors are ok with it although there are laws against it. In essence political radicals are encouraging the hoodlums to destroy public property. Trump is the only one thus far who has made an effort to stop it. The news media does not care, but act like drunken party goers urging them on. Arrest the insurrectionist. Have the FCC arrest the news outlets engaged in aiding ad abetting criminal activity!
