Leftist Activists Demand NY Museum Take Down Statue of ‘Racist’ Teddy Roosevelt

In his combative press conference on Tuesday, President Trump lambasted the media for defending “Antifa” leftists who ripped down a Confederate statue in North Carolina, asking if all slave-owning U.S. Founders would be the next target:

And Monday, leftist radicals proved Trump right — but they are going far beyond that.

They are calling former President Theodore Roosevelt a “racist” and demanding a famous statue of him in New York City be dismantled.

From DailyWire:

After demanding that southern states take down statues of Confederate figures, the activist Left is now targeting an iconic American president featured on Mount Rushmore.

On Monday, more than 200 SJW zealots held a protest inside the American Museum of Natural History in New York City to take down the supposedly “racist” statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt. The protest’s organizers, NYC Stands with Standing Rock and Decolonize This Place, also called for Columbus Day to be renamed Indigenous People’s Day.

“A stark embodiment of the white supremacy that Roosevelt himself espoused and promoted,” pontificated the group of protesters in a statement. “The statue is seen as an affront to all who pass it on entering the museum, but especially to African and Native Americans.”

Marching around the museum in a fit of self-righteous rage, protesters carried signs that read “BLACK LIVES MATTER,” “DECOLONIZE THIS MUSEUM,” and “ABOLISH WHITE SUPREMACY.”

The entire spectacle was underscored by a sort of religious fanaticism.

In fact, the devout left-wing activists moved from exhibit to exhibit in a trance-like motion burning sage and exuberantly playing Native American music.

Activists had purportedly planned the event three weeks in advance in order to make the bizarre show of leftist rage as special as possible.

“The group started with a 10-stop tour of the museum in which they highlighted a variety of exhibits they felt were racist and misrepresentative, which ranged from how the representation of Africans reinforces negative stereotypes to the exoticizing of Islam in the Hall of Islam exhibit,” reports The Guardian.

While the protesters managed to create a disruption at the museum, they failed to take down Roosevelt’s statue mounted outside thanks to 25 police officers who stood guard and protected the president.

And the Antifa wackjobs are not limiting themselves to attacking presidents they view as hostile to Blacks or Native Americans.

Today they vandalized the Lincoln Memorial — yes, the man who freed the slaves writing “F__k law.” (F__k the law?) Why? Simply because he’s white?

As the media, Democrats and even spineless Republicans attack Trump for daring to call out the “Alt-Left’s” role in recent violence, the Antifa Taliban is looking to completely erase the American history they despise and replace it with their own, Communist “New America” where dissent will not be tolerated.

Kudos to Trump for taking them on and speaking truth to the sick establishment.
