Democrats Take ‘Cancel Culture’ To A Whole New Level

Gutfeld: New York City may take down statues of historical figures | via Fox News

Despite billions of dollars in budget cuts and a major migrant crisis, New York City is now looking into the removal of statues of George Washington, among other Found Fathers.

The bill being presented would effectively “require the Public Design Commission (PDC) to publish a plan to remove works of art on City property that depict a person who owned enslaved persons or directly benefitted economically from slavery, or who participated in systemic crimes against indigenous peoples or other crimes against humanity.”

Based on these requirements, George Washington would likely be put on the chopping block. (Trending: Trump Gets Big Win in Georgia Court)

Christopher Columbus would likely face the same fate.

The bill states that if a statue isn’t taken down, it would have to “include in the plan steps it will take to install an explanatory plaque next to the work of art.”

A breakdown of the bill added:

“This bill would also require the Department of Transportation to consult with the Department of Education to install plaques on sidewalks or other public space adjacent to schools that are named after a person that fits the criteria.” (Trending: Joe Biden Slammed For Racist Remark)

“Require the Commission on Racial Equity to establish a Truth, Healing, and Reconciliation process in connection with the City’s historic involvement in slavery” and “require the Chief Equity Officer to create an anti-racism training for employees of human services contractors.”

Former President Donald Trump posted about the potential of this very event just six years ago.

“This week, it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself: ‘Where does it stop?’” Trump pressed. (Trending: AOC Dealt A Heavy Dose of Reality)

In a 2017 Twitter post, Trump stated, “sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments.”

He then said, “can’t change history, but you can learn from it.”

“Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!”

New York leftists would later take down a City Hall statue of Thomas Jefferson.
