New York City Cancels Theodore Roosevelt – Is Sending His Statue To North Dakota
New York City recently removed a statue of Thomas Jefferson from their city hall. Now a statue of Theodore Roosevelt is on the chopping block.
The statue, which stands outside the Museum of Natural History, is going to be sent off to North Dakota.
Leftists are actively erasing American history from public view.
The New York Post reports:
Theodore Roosevelt statue at Museum of Natural History to be moved to North Dakota
A controversial statue of President Theodore Roosevelt that has stood in front of the American Museum of Natural History for over 80 years will be relocated to North Dakota.
The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation, which is set to open in 2026, said in a statement that “it has entered into an agreement with the City of New York for the long-term loan and reconsideration of the Equestrian Statue designed by James Earle Fraser.”
The announcement comes five months after the New York City Public Design Commission voted unanimously to relocate the bronze effigy of the nation’s 26th president amid claims that it symbolizes colonial subjugation and racial discrimination.
The monument — which shows Roosevelt on horseback, flanked by an African man and a Native American man — has long been criticized for glorifying colonialism and racism. It was vandalized with paint in 2017.
Remember a few years ago when the left said this was just about Confederate statues? They lied.
The ‘problematic’ statue will find a new home in Medora, North Dakota ‘where it will eventually be displayed at the new Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library.https://t.co/tU4vmWgXQ9

Theodore Roosevelt statue is removed from a museum because it’s “problematic” and fails to get “consent” from passersby. Yes, the statue is a problem because it didn’t ask for consent to exist. This is a real thing in America in 2021. “Beyond parody” doesn’t begin to describe it. pic.twitter.com/6ogt81kZVj

Another victory for the Cancel Culture Mob! A bronze statue honoring Republican President Teddy Roosevelt will no longer welcome visitors to New York City’s American Museum of Natural History after a stint of 81 years. https://t.co/QgH4JyCgHk

How long before they go after the Statue of Liberty?
