Thomas Jefferson Statue Removed from NYC City Hall

Thomas Jefferson will no longer preside over the hallways of City Hall in New York City.

Just as Trump predicted, the cancel culture has now gone after our Founding Fathers and early presidents.

Jefferson’s statue was removed without fanfare, and there were more than a few in the city that were not happy about it.

All About Context

The Jefferson statue was boxed up, removed, and sent to the New York Historical Society.

Erin Thompson, a John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor, stated, “Removing a monument without a public conversation about why it’s happening is useless. New Yorkers all need to talk about who we want to honor and why.”

The reason was that Jefferson owned slaves, but that statement far from tells the entire story.

Jefferson, literally from day one, was against slavery, calling it “moral depravity” and “hideous blot” against this country.

He believed that if slavery were able to persist, it would lead to the death of the new nation.

Nobody ever talks about the fact that Jefferson actually purchased slaves to reunite family members, in some cases.

He also made a huge divestment from slavery over the years and strongly opposed statehood in states that still heavily relied upon slave labor.

It is a reasonably safe assumption that due to Jefferson’s efforts and that of most of our Founding Fathers, slavery never would have ended as quickly as it did without their efforts.

We cannot help but wonder if it is the fact that Jefferson owned slaves or his other ideas that upset leftists so much in this country.

Perhaps the idea of liberty is just a bit too much for today’s Democrats…

So, what is next?

Do we demolish the monuments to our Founders and early presidents in D.C.?

Do we strip their paintings from the halls of the White House?

Granted, not everyone in the early days of our government deserves to be honored, but Jefferson surely does.

This is an utter disgrace and a very dangerous precedent being set about selectively editing the history of this country.

What do you guys think about Jefferson being removed from the NYC City Hall?

Do you see more Founders being erased from our history?

  3. WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING IN USA

    AND THE CORRUPT POLITICIANS ARE ALLOWING IT?

    WHERE ARE YOUR VALUES ? YOUR MORALS? YOUR PRINCIPALS?

    ALL BRAIN WASHED LIKE ROBOTS

    I AM A LEGAL IMIGRANT AND USA CITIZEN AND I AM ASHAME TO BE A USA CITIZEN UNDER THE CORRUPT AND CRAZY DEMOCRASTS
    THIS WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED BECAUSE THE JUDGES OF THESE SITE AND THE JURORS ARE ROBOT ARE NOT ALLOWED TO THINK BY THEMSELVES ROBOTS THEY ARE

    1. Amen is right typical liberal move without knowing the whole truth, opening mouth inserting foot. I am born & raised American LEGAL citizen. I did knot know this about Jefferson. The liberal left has got to fall they are destroying our Country. God help us. Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. I think its wrong just like Abraham Lincoln being taken down in another state. Its history and we cant learn by it if it is cancelked and raken away.

  5. They take down our history, but have statue honoring a drug addiction! That’s pretty sick! What’s sad is, the same idiots will vote for these Demonrats again, no matter who they hurt or what they do. If I hated someone, I sure as hell wouldn’t vote for a babbling imbecile like what we have now in office! I just wouldn’t vote! We can thank all the idiots that voted for babbling Biden!

  6. I just visited Monticello earlier this month and was one again reminded what a truly great man he was. How sad that so many Americans are uninformed.

  7. These iconic leaders are a large part of our history. It is not right to selectively remove
    parts of history. That is totally wrong and inexcusable.

    1. I was thinking ok NYC but painting BLM on the street was ok? But we know that the Democrat Party never came out against all the riots, injuries and property damage done during their “peaceful protests”. They keep saying President Trump would never say he was against white supremacist during debate. But when has any Democrat said BLM is not really for black lives at all? BLM has a different agenda and chose the name to deter from their real purpose.

      1. you are totally right, there is so much corruption going on, I wonder what the whole plan will be. We only can fight for our freedom and stay strong.
        Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  8. When you disipline your child (if you disipline your child) do you remind them of what they did that wasn’t acceptable so they know why they are being disiplined? How will they know how to change if you don’t remind them of what was wrong?
    If we erase the past of hour history how will future generations know what NOT to do again? Every one makes mistakes when they are learning somthing new. Why should our our new country be any different. Just because you erase it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen but it does mean there isn’t any info to learn from anymore.
    Not a smart way to live. Maybe we don’t have such smart people trying to run our country like we did in the
    beginning. STOP & THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO THE FUTURE GENERATIONS. NOT HELPING!!!

  9. Wrong wrong we need names of the group that did this on what authority .our COUNTRY is being taken away leave alone

    1. you are right, it should be transparent. But the dems are not transparent. This is still the country of “We the people”, I think like the first guy said, the people should decide what statues are taken down. Unfortunately, with this administration we cannot expect any decency.

    1. Who gives the order for the pictures or monuments to be taken down. Their names should be published. They should be held responsible for our country losing it’s history. What are they thinking when they do this? What is the job they were given to do and why are they not doing it instead of worrying about statues? What in the hell are we paying them for? I think they need a cut in pay. They are not solving problems but making them.

  10. I keep hearing that Cancel Culture did it.
    Who is Cancel Culture?
    Who ordered and paid to have the statue removed and transported?
    These individuals must be publicly Named and Shamed!

  11. These people need to be removed from our country now. Send them to a third world country. Names of people doing this need to be published. To many comming into our country that dont share our values, or how hard we worked to make this america great. To much time on thier hands. GET A JOB

  12. I agree with all the above. This country is going “nuts” because they don’t know the history behind our greatness. They destroy rather than contribute good to all.

  13. I wish these imbeciles would leave our damn country alone!!
    Go find some other country to screw up!
    There is going to be a reckoning soon.
    WE THE PEOPLE are fed up with stupid, arrogant a** wipes, that are trying to erase our history!! You may not like or agree with what happened in our past, but that’s just the way it is.
    If you truly HATE America that much then get the hell out, in fact, I’ll bet there are people who would be willing to buy you a one way ticket to lovely China, Cuba, or even Afghanistan. All you have to do is GO!!!!!!
    LET’S GO BRANDON!!!!!!!

  14. what is wrong with this nation? we are losing the history that built this nation and made it so great. our grandkids are being lied to and being taught false information. are there any decent politians left in washington?

  15. VIRGINIA LOVES THOMAS JEFFERSON IM REALLY SURPRISED THAT BLACK PEOPLE HAVE NOT GOTTEN INTO CHANGING THEIR LAST NAME SINCE THEY TOOK THE LAST NAME OF THE SLAVE HOLDER MAYBE THATS AROUND THE CORNER IT AMAZES ME THAT IF YOU DONT LIKE AMERICA GET OUT BUT DO THEY NO THEY DONT
