The woke crowd strikes again! If everything is racist, then nothing is racist. A perfect example is the latest idiotic move by a De Blasio-appointed commission overseeing statues:
A famous 80-year old statue of Theodore ‘Teddy’ Roosevelt made even more famous when featured in the movie ‘Night at the Museum’ has been declared ‘racist’ by the NYC Public Design Committee. Actors Robin Williams and Ben Stiller made going to the museum fun when historical figures in the museum came to life.
The statue has been outside the New York City Museum of Natural History for 80 years but will be removed for “racism complaints,” according to the Daily Mail.
Mayor De Blasio’s New York City Public Design Commission voted unanimously to remove the treasured statue and relocate it. Think about all the kids who have seen the ‘Night at the Museum’ Movies and visit the Natural History Museum only to find the Teddy Roosevelt statue has been removed. There hasn’t been an announcement about where the statue will go, but this is a loss for the museum.
The big problem is the statue shows Roosevelt on horseback with a Native American man and an African man flanking the horse. The offended feel like the statue depicts a hierarchy, with Roosevelt being above the other two men.
