The American Museum of Natural History announced that it would remove an iconic statue of American President Theodore Roosevelt on Sunday, bowing to a politically correct leftist mob who has recently decided that the statue of Roosevelt is racist.
The statue features Roosevelt on horseback, flanked by a Native American man and an African man. The statue is intended to commemorate Roosevelt’s legacy as a world explorer and outdoorsman; Roosevelt had led a scientifically notable expedition to the continent of Africa in 1910, collecting more than 10,000 specimens of animal life largely unknown to western science at the time.
The statue had been defaced by left-wing vandals in 2017, in one of the first acts of opposition to the image of American history.
Ellen V. Futter, the President of the Museum- which Roosevelt himself played a crucial role in founding- explained her decision to purge the President’s image from the facility, although there’s no explanation of where the statue(which was installed in 1940) is going to be placed. “We believe that moving the statue can be a symbol of progress in our commitment to build and sustain an inclusive and equitable society.”
Cultural leftists and ANTIFA militants have increasingly shown a propensity to target not only Confederate memorabilia statues, but images of American Presidents for destruction in their rampage against Western and American civilization. Commemoration of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Ulysses Grant have been targeted by the cultural left in recent days, and it appears that Teddy Roosevelt is joining their distinguished company.
Tennessee High School Principal Suspended for Speaking Against Big Tech Censorship
Welcome to an Orwellian hellworld.
The principal of a Tennessee high school has been suspended from his duties for daring to criticize the unprecedented censorship enacted by Big Tech companies against President Donald Trump earlier this month.
Principal Barton Thorne of Cordova High School in Memphis had been speaking in a teleconference in which he condemned the riot at the US Capitol. Throne also slammed the censorship that followed the event, comparing Twitter and Facebook’s censorship to Joseph McCarthy’s sham accusations in the 1950’s.
“There have been times even in American history where a small group of people decided what you could hear. You think about “McCarthyism. If you don’t know about that, you can Google that or talk to your Social Studies teacher,” said Thorne.
“It’s what’s going on with Twitter and Facebook and Google and Apple, and their decision as private companies to filter and to decide what you, you hear and know about.”
Thorne was almost immediately suspended by the Shelby County School district, pending an official “review” of his totally innocuous comments. Thorne later drafted an email apology, bowing for his transgression against the authority of tech oligarchs.
The American education used to instill the values of free speech and political liberty in those it taught. Fidelity to such concepts have been cast to the wayside, sidelined in favor of indoctrination into the American elite’s racial caste system and liberal ideology.
