NYC statues of Washington, Jefferson

Original Article

Not even the Father of Our Country is safe. First lady Chirlane McCray will put statues and structures honoring historic figures tainted by slavery — including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson — under the microscope as part of a new “Commission on Racial Justice and Reconciliation,” Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Friday. Hizzoner’s move comes a day after five city lawmakers — including City Council Speaker Corey Johnson — sent a letter requesting the statue of Jefferson be removed from the council’s chamber, as leaders across the city and nation struggle to respond to weeks of protests over racism that followed the death of George Floyd.


Those people disgust me, and this makes my stomach churn.

Will taking down the statues of our founders, who began the abolition movement, stop the looting, burning and violence?

There was an article a few days ago about protesters wanting to remove a statue of Abe Lincoln. That was the tipoff that this isn't about racism, and its more about America-haters wanting to rewrite the history of America, and 'changing' and transforming America.

There's no decision here. They stay. BLM is free to move to Wakanda (where they've been invited to go) and the socialists are free to move to North Korea, Cuba or Venezuela.

What's gonna happen to all those black folk whose last names are Washington and Jefferson? Change it to "X," as was done in the 60's & 70's?

I left New York and moved away more than 40 years ago, yet continue to have ties and relations in New York, visit frequently and keep up with the news. i feel that I own New York more than that Marxist anti-white embezzler McCray. I will be sad to see the New York I grew up with systematically destroyed by these cultural vandals

NYC voted in these creatures to wreak totalitarian havoc over them. Let them suffer the consequences of communist rule. In the meantime seal off all roads, highways, trains, ferries, airports and impose a blockade of all food, fuel, and other basic necessities of life. A very harsh lesson that these brainwashed, ignorant fools in NYC need to be taught before they will ever have even a smidgen of sanity restored.

Next step: replacing those statutes with ones of themselves. This is how symbolism works. Only the new righteous may be remembered and memorialized.

Same here, OP. Sickening. Was going to mention Beck's desire to preserve the statues. (#18's comment). I would love to have one or more here in our care, Washington, Jefferson, Columbus, for example, but not a Confederate soldier. These America haters must leave the Country now.

Lockheed Martin, the nation’s largest defense contractor, put top executives through a three-day training to deconstruct their “white male culture” and unlearn their “white male privilege,” according to a new report. Thirteen employees, including a former three-star general and the vice president of production for the $1.7 trillion F-35 fighter jet program, attended a program on Zoom last year led by the consulting firm White Men As Full Diversity Partners, according to City Journal’s Christopher Rufo. The firm works to help white men “awaken together.”

Along with its ongoing ethical problems, a deceptive marketing campaign, and a continued hatred for non-liberal voices, it’s been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year for the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN. And as per the latest Nielsen ratings, CNN has continued to hemorrhage viewers with primetime and entire day total viewership down over 70 percent since January. Nielsen Media Research has the breakdown and it’s not pretty, no matter how the Zucker Borg would spin it. Since a January high of roughly 798,000 primetime viewers and 530,000 total day viewers in the 25-54 demographic, CNN has fallen off a cliff and into the pit of misery

This week, we're marking the one-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd. His death at the hands of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin—who has been convicted of two counts of murder and one of manslaughter—sparked a national conversation about racism in America. It's a conversation that's long overdue, that activists like us have been waiting for for too long. (Snip) Rather than exposing our struggle, it dilutes and erases it behind a broader and inaccurate class of victims. It's no wonder that the phrases "people of color" or even BIPOC in this context aggravates many Black people CORRECTION*

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to condemn the populist appeal of former President Donald Trump during a Thursday evening speech at the Reagan library.“If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or on second-rate imitations, then we’re not going anywhere,” Ryan plans to say according to speech excerpts released to Punchbowl News.To win back the majority in Congress, Ryan will predict, Republicans need to focus on “conservative principles” and be agreeable. “We win majorities by directing our loyalty and respect to voters, and by staying faithful to the conservative principles that unite us,” he plans to say.

Joaquin Castro (D-TX) said, “It’s very much a naked power grab. Also, if you look at the leadership in Texas, Lawrence, it very much is out of sync with the population of Texas. Texas is an incredibly diverse state, and the Republican leadership in Texas is not. It’s very sad to say, but I think it’s true that it is a lot of Republican White males

Yesterday, Peter Doocy asked Jen Psaki why President Biden wasn’t pressing for more information on the Wuhan lab leak theory. “We have repeatedly called for the WHO to support an expert-driven evaluation of the pandemic’s origins,” Psaki replied. That answer was very troubling, I observed in our story on Psaki’s response. Is there an American investigation still ongoing into the question from the Biden team, I asked? Because it doesn’t sound like it, from what Psaki was saying — and because we surely can’t trust anything that WHO concludes on the matter, given their prior actions. Turns out that was a good question to ask. Because now there are reports

Bill was dressed in a blue suit with a checkered button-down shirt—no tie—while Hillary wore a three-quarter-length striped wool coat as she drank her wine.

Cheney was ousted by her party from leadership earlier this month for having repeatedly criticized former President Donald Trump for his past statements on the 2020 election.
