Teddy Roosevelt Statue to be Removed From Museum of Natural History
I warned America in my latest book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,” that a national movement was underway to destroy American culture. I warned Americans that statues, books, paintings and movies would be banished for the sake of political correctness.
My book was ridiculed by the left and by Never Trumpers in the Mainstream Media. My book was even banned from primetime television programs on Fox News Channel.
But six months after my book was published, everything I predicted in “Culture Jihad” has come true. And I would strongly encourage you to click here to get a copy.
The New York Times reported on Sunday that the latest incident of culture jihad was happening in front of the Museum of Natural History.

De Blasio Says Statue Portrays Blacks as Racially Inferior
Among those celebrating the censorship of American history is Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“The American Museum of Natural History has asked to remove the Theodore Roosevelt statue because it explicitly depicts Black and Indigenous people as subjugated and racially inferior,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. “The City supports the Museum’s request. It is the right decision and the right time to remove this problematic statue.”
The museum — which is privately run but sits on public land — requested the statue be moved and the city agreed, according to the report.
“Over the last few weeks, our museum community has been profoundly moved by the ever-widening movement for racial justice that has emerged after the killing of George Floyd,” Futter, told the Times.
“We have watched as the attention of the world and the country has increasingly turned to statues as powerful and hurtful symbols of systemic racism,” she added. “Simply put, the time has come to move it.”
