ERASING HISTORY: New York City Removes Statue Of 26th President Theodore Roosevelt (VIDEO)

Remember when the left started taking down historic statues and claimed it was just about the confederacy?

That was a lie.

We know that because a few months ago, New York City removed a statue of Thomas Jefferson and now they have removed a statue of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States.

The statue has stood in front of the Museum of Natural History for forty years.

The New York Post reports:

Roosevelt went on a rough ride.

A statue of Theodore Roosevelt that has stood in front of the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan for more than 80 years was hauled away Wednesday, photos show.

The bronze monument depicting the nation’s 26th president on a horse flanked by an African man and a Native American man — which has sparked protests for glorifying colonialism and racism — was yanked out with a crane just after midnight, leaving behind only its concrete pedestal.

The controversial effigy will be sent to a library in North Dakota on a long-term loan, officials have said.

The $2 million removal, carried out by the museum and the city, comes after the New York City Public Design Commission voted in June to relocate the monument.

Last month, the museum covered the 10-foot-tall statue with an orange tarp ahead of its shipment to the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora, North Dakota.
