Theodore Roosevelt

Jefferson And Roosevelt Are Out

We had seen a slowdown in the movement until last month when lame-duck Mayor DeBlasio took two more steps to erase Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt from N.Y.C. memories. The bust of Jefferson was removed from City Hall Chambers, and the statue of Teddy on his horse was taken from the steps on the Library. Instead of focusing on how far we have come as a nation, DeBlasio joined the anti-American cause.
