Abraham Lincoln Removed from Cornell Library

It would appear as though the man that widely considered one of the three greatest presidents of this country, if not the greatest, has offended the liberal horde.

Cornell University has removed the Gettysburg Address and a bust of Abraham Lincoln from its library.

Why was this done?

Simply put, someone complained about it.

Ridiculous

Cornell biology professor Randy Wayne explained, “Someone complained, and it was gone.”

What possibly could Abraham Lincoln’s bust and Gettysburg Address done to have offended someone?

When the school was asked about the removal, it countered that it was only a temporary display.

Rebecca Valli, director of media relations at Cornell University, stated, “President Lincoln’s bust was part of a temporary exhibit on the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.

“The bust was on display in the Rare and Manuscript Collections from 2013 to 2021.

“Cornell proudly possesses one of five known copies of the Gettysburg Address in Lincoln’s hand.

“The original is safely sequestered, with a digital facsimile on permanent display. Additionally, five electronic Lincoln exhibitions are available for 24/7 viewing online.”

So, my question would be, if you have something that rare in your possession, why would you not keep it on display to draw more people in?

Furthermore, the area where that display was now sits empty.

When Valli was specifically asked about the professor’s claim of the complaint, she did not respond.

Lincoln has become a target of the horde because of the Lincoln Emancipation Statue.

The statue depicts a slave being freed by Lincoln and was, ironically, partially funded by formerly enslaved Americans.
