The 80 year-old statue of teddy Roosevelt has just been removed. We are not terribly removed from total chaos in this country. We need sensible Democrats to counterbalance the totalitarian crazies who now dominate the party. Will they?????They haven't so far...people like Big C are a rarity in the party. for every Big C, there are v10,000 Al Sharptons and AOC's!!!!!Sad...

You failed to mention the subjugated Black and Native American persons that are part of the statuary. Teddy's countenance looks proud. Their's just looks sad and resigned to bleakness.



Huck it in the Florida Keyes to serve as part of an artificial reef along with the statues of JoPa, Confederate traitors and any statute of tRump in existence or to be created.




*What is your position?
1. That the statue should not be offensive to Blacks or Native Americans? or

2. You can understand how they may be offended, but they should bear it in the name of 80 years of history?

It's not cancel culture if Thedore Roosevelt thinks the statue should be moved.

"The world does not need statues, relics of another age, that reflect neither the values of the person they intend to honor nor the values of equality and justice," said Theodore Roosevelt IV, age 77, a great-grandson of the 26th president and a museum trustee. "The composition of the Equestrian Statue does not reflect Theodore Roosevelt's legacy. It is time to move the statue and move forward."

Lincoln and MLK Jr. are next. Like Trump said, there are good people on both sides of this debate.

The statue of Teddy Roosevelt and the subjugated Native American and black man were an embarrassment to all of us as a people.

Really clever-----but wrong-headed----post. Your generalizations apparently seem genus-level to
your "base",

Others are hammering your lack of any context at all.

There are many, many, many millions of us who are MUCH closer in philosophy to Big C****than to Al and/or AOC.

But you knew that already.

****Let's see where he goes (only 11.3% of his posts are OT compared to 45.5% for you).

BTW: by using **** instead of the usual *.....I'm not swearing at you as you seem to want to believe,
