Mayor Bill de Blasio, seemingly unhappy with the disapproval that comes with imposing vastly unpopular and pointless masks and vaccine mandates, has discovered one other strategy to anger New Yorkers. With simply three months remaining on his time period, de Blasio has known as for the elimination of a 187-year-old Thomas Jefferson statue from City Hall’s council chambers.
Yes, de Blasio is trying to cancel a former president who died practically 200 years in the past.

Per the New York Post, the town’s Public Design Commission has listed “the long term loan” of the 1833 painted plaster statue of the creator of the Declaration of Independence to the New York Historical Society on its “consent” agenda for Monday. Doing so signifies that elimination of the statue is not going to be up for public debate. Instead, members of the fee will vote on the statue’s elimination as soon as they’ve reviewed public feedback.
Those feedback must be…fascinating.
Councilman Joe Borelli informed the NY Post, “The de Blasio administration will proceed the progressive struggle on historical past as he, himself, fades away right into a portrait on a City Hall wall.
“I hope he is at least gone a couple hundred years before someone cancels him,” added Borelli.
The Jefferson statue was gifted to the town in 1834 by Uriah Phillips Levy, an officer of the Navy, and handed to the historic society by means of an “indefinite” mortgage. The statue is anticipated to be eliminated by October twenty first. Unfortunately, New Yorkers must wait one other few months to say the identical about de Blasio.
