Footage is a perfect analogy for the cultural and political destruction of America

A statue of Thomas Jefferson that has stood for almost 200 years was removed from New York City Hall Monday after a minority of Mayoral appointees deemed it to be potentially offensive.

Footage of the statue being removed was shared widely.

It was secured with straps and lifted by chains:

The statue was then placed into a crate and lowered down to the ground floor of the building:

The statue will be relocated to the New York Historical Society after nine members of the Mayoral appointed Public Design Commission voted in October to remove it.

Several lawmakers testified that the statue is ‘offensive’, with Democratic Assemblyman Charles Barron of Brooklyn even declaring that Jefferson was a “slaveholding pedophile.” 

Others, including Republican City council member Joe Borelli accused NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio of waging a “progressive war on history.” 

The statue will likely be included in educational exhibits with the ‘proper’ historical context that likely will include discussion of Jefferson’s slave ownership.

People who tried to watch the removal of the statue were initially told that they had no right to be there:

As we previously noted, back in 2017, after statues of Confederate figures were targeted, President Trump predicted that soon enough it would be statues of Jefferson and Washington that would face the axe.

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself: ‘Where does it stop?’” Trump asked at the time.

The media said Trump was overreacting and pointing to a ‘false slippery slope’.

John Oliver devoted an entire segment to mocking Trump over the statement:

Wrong.

Trump was 100% correct. 

Again.

It hasn’t stopped. History is being systematically erased.

Earlier this year we reported on the woke mob succeeding in influencing a MUSEUM in New York to remove a statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt.
