New York City Panel Votes To Remove Thomas Jefferson Statue At City Hall That Has Stood There Since 1834 As History Continues To Be Rewritten

The Thomas Jefferson statue at City Hall has been the source of an ongoing debate. On Monday, a city panel voted to remove it, CBS2’s Kevin Rincon reported. The 7-foot statue has been at City Hall since 1834. For the last 20 years there’s been an effort to get it removed, an effort led by Assemblymen Charles Barron and his wife, Councilwoman Inez Barron. “When we remove this statue, we’re making a step in the right direction for erasing honoring of those who murdered and raped us,” Charles Barron said. “We’re not being revisionist. We’re not waging a war on history. We’re saying that we want to make sure that the total story is told,” Inez Barron added. The Public Design Commission listened to arguments for three hours before deciding to remove the statue from the Council chambers.

“I believe it’s time for us as a city to turn the page and move forward. We now have the opportunity to do that by moving the statue to the New York Historical Society, where the full story of Thomas Jefferson will be told in context,” Council member Adrienne Adams said.

One of the Founding Fathers hated by the radical Left more than any of the others is Thomas Jefferson, and in far Left New York, a City Panel just voted to remove a 7-ft statue of Thomas Jefferson which had been there since 1834. Why do they hate him so? It has nothing to do with anything about slaves, it’s about a little document he wrote that we call the Declaration of Independence. Today they are dumping his statue, very soon they will be dumping the very documents this nation was founded upon.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”― George Orwell, 1984

The Democrats despise America, which is why you see right now in 2021 the abandonment of our southern border and the flooding of our country with illegal immigrants whose very presence here is a crime. America is run by lawless anarchists whose main target is our Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. So you just go on thinking that it’s just a statue, what’s the big deal? Just like a tiny, little yellow star, how bad could that be? You’re about to find out.

New York City Panel Votes To Remove Thomas Jefferson Statue At City Hall

FROM CBS 2 NEW YORK: The Thomas Jefferson statue at City Hall has been the source of an ongoing debate. On Monday, a city panel voted to remove it, CBS2’s Kevin Rincon reported. The 7-foot statue has been at City Hall since 1834. For the last 20 years there’s been an effort to get it removed, an effort led by Assemblymen Charles Barron and his wife, Councilwoman Inez Barron.

“When we remove this statue, we’re making a step in the right direction for erasing honoring of those who murdered and raped us,” Charles Barron said. “We’re not being revisionist. We’re not waging a war on history. We’re saying that we want to make sure that the total story is told,” Inez Barron added.

The Public Design Commission listened to arguments for three hours before deciding to remove the statue from the Council chambers. But where to put it, well, that is still up for debate. Historian Todd Fine said it should be moved to the Governor’s Room, where it was originally displayed.

“It was there for about seven to eight decades, until it was moved to the Council chambers. So, it could easily be moved back there without necessarily intimidating the Council members who have a problem with it,” Fine said.

Another proposal is to move it to the city’s oldest museum, the New York Historical Society.

“I believe it’s time for us as a city to turn the page and move forward. We now have the opportunity to do that by moving the statue to the New York Historical Society, where the full story of Thomas Jefferson will be told in context,” Council member Adrienne Adams said.

But even that created issues.

“Approving a loan of the statue to the Historical Society, which is not committed to ever display the statue, will effectively take what is now public artwork and conceal it from public access for the foreseeable future,” Robert Loscalzo said.

“Put him somewhere in a public space because his ideas are public property and at least one statue should be as well,” Raymond Lavertue said.

There was an agreement to get that statue out of the Council chambers, but the commission will need some time to figure out what to do next. It said it’ll make a decision on where to move it by the end of the year. READ MORE

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,860+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
