Outside of some vague utopian notion of a classless, raceless, genderless, nationless society, the crowd that does these things has no idea of what its actual goals are. That’s why this craziness never ends. Yesterday it was Robert E Lee, today it’s Theodore Roosevelt:
Protesters splattered red liquid onto the base of the bronze statue of Theodore Roosevelt outside the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, and later published a statement on the internet calling for its removal as an emblem of “patriarchy, white supremacy and settler-colonialism.”
The group said the museum should “rethink its cultural halls regarding the colonial mentality behind them.”
Have you ever noticed that this crowd just doesn’t stop? Every time a concession is made, they move on to another target. It’s because, at the end of the day, they don’t know what they want; they just know that they like getting others to meet their demands.
