NYC removing Thomas Jefferson statue from City Hall

| October 21, 2021

More revisionist history and erasure from the tolerant left. This time New York City is following in the footsteps of places like Madison, WI and voted unanimously to remove a nearly 200 year old statue of author of the Declaration of Independence, third US President Thomas Jefferson.

Breitbart reports;

Public art officials in New York City voted unanimously earlier this week to remove a 188-year-old statue of Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and third president of the United States, from the city council chamber at City Hall.

The decision is based on the fact that Jefferson owned slaves. That fact is not mentioned in his biography posted on the White House website, which reads in part:

Freckled and sandy-haired, rather tall and awkward, Jefferson was eloquent as a correspondent, but he was no public speaker. In the Virginia House of Burgesses and the Continental Congress, he contributed his pen rather than his voice to the patriot cause. As the “silent member” of the Congress, Jefferson, at 33, drafted the Declaration of Independence. In years following he labored to make its words a reality in Virginia. Most notably, he wrote a bill establishing religious freedom, enacted in 1786.

Jefferson succeeded Benjamin Franklin as minister to France in 1785. His sympathy for the French Revolution led him into conflict with Alexander Hamilton when Jefferson was Secretary of State in President Washington’s Cabinet.

ABC reported on the move, based exclusively on slavery and race:

The City Council’s Black, Latino, and Asian caucus released a statement on the statue’s removal, citing a letter to Democrat New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“This administration owes it to the more than five million New Yorkers of color our members – past, present and future – represent, to resolve that the individuals memorialized within the confines of our People’s House be reflective not only of the best traditions of our city’s history and its diversity but unquestionable character,” it read, in part.

Not everyone supports removing the statue, and it has become an issue in the New York City mayoral race. [Mayoral] candidates Curtis Sliwa and Eric Adams both shared their thoughts on the matter.

“Do we suddenly wipe out the images, the markings, the names of all those great patriots because they were slaveholders and slave holding was quite common at that time?” Sliwa said.

“There are a number of appropriate figures to honor in our seat of government who are more directly meaningful to our people and are more reflective of our city’s history than Thomas Jefferson,” Adams said.

While Jefferson did indeed own slaves, it was rumored during his time and confirmed centuries later that, he literally loved them.

Go ahead. You can’t change what happened no matter how much you want to erase history.


I disagree with removing this statue and think it is an idiotic action. I admire a Jefferson, he is one of the founders I admire most. That being said, this is the clingiest thing I have ever read on the internet; “While Jefferson did indeed own slaves, it was rumored during his time and confirmed centuries later that, he literally loved them.” Mason, that sentence is actually crazy. Not just propaganda; it is a deranged.… Read more »

“There is indisputable evidence he fathered children with her.”
From other evidence that I’ve read, it was not TJ that fathered children with Ms Hemings, but TJ’s younger brother Randolph that done the deed(s).

But, to quote one of your own favorite females, and former Sec of State, “At this point, what difference does it make?”

You are right, not indisputable. But overwhelming. I did hear that Jefferson’s nephews were rumored to have possibly fathered the children. But the DNA evidence ruled them out. Hemings became pregnant with her first child when she with Jefferson in Paris. Randolph was not in Paris. It is interesting you provided a link to, they have refuted the Randolph claims. Randolph being the father of any of Hemings children has been ruled out…with the… Read more »


Yeah, our vaunted graduate student who doesn’t have the wit, humor or reading comprehension to recognize a playful play on words.

What a tool…

Someone needs to update their Sarcasm Recognition Software. Fortunately, there is a somewhat reputable proud but humble woman owned software company formerly located in Bethesda MD that is bundling it with their Y3K software. You better hurry, the next millennium is only 979 years away.


Ever notice that the people that believe in totalitarian ideologies are extremely humorless? It seems to be a standard personality trait among zealots of every stripe.


“Mason, that sentence is actually crazy. Not just propaganda; it is a deranged”.

Commissar, if you could turn your “perpetual outrage” down to a low simmer, you may have recognized that as humor, a play on words, a pun. It must truly be a miserable existence for you, living a sad and lonely life, screeching to be heard, to be taken seriously.


Commie-czar-ZEK snivels: October 21, 2021 at 11:36 am – I disagree with removing this statue and think it is an idiotic action. If you think it’s idiotic, then you really ought to support your statement as to explain WHY.. – I admire a Jefferson, he is one of the founders I admire most. AND..? Why do you admire him and what are the appreciable qualities you actually admire? – That being said, this is the… Read more »


Lord knows I don’t agree with commie on much of anything but almost everything he wrote he was lifted directly from Monticello’s website slavery FAQs on Jefferson and Sally Hemings. While this may not make it true or accurate it is a source, one of the most credible sources on Jefferson known. So far as why Jefferson didn’t free Sally; according to her, she struck a bargain with him while they were living in… Read more »


Understood. And fair to say it would seem you had no trouble citing source-links/material and even posting a link or two to support such.
I was pointing out -throughout- that Commie-czar-ZEK did not provide any source links/materials or attempt to support any of his statements and cited opinion only. Goes the old saying ‘Opinions are like assholes – everyone’s got one. In Commie-czar-ZEK’s case – his opinions are usually full of contradictory shit… Cheers Mate!


If being a slave owner and having sex with slaves is the reason for canceling Thomas Jefferson, why do liberals not cancel Mohammed he owned slaves and supported the institution. Mohammed had no problem at all with the institution of slavery as long as they were not Muslims. Sex with female slaves was considered a right of the owner. I’m not trying to offend Muslims or have any racist intent just curious about the double… Read more »


Let’s not forget the pedophilia/hebephilia/ephebophilia involved in the good old Middle Eastern prophet.
But I digre…. LET’S GO BRANDON!!!!!!
😀 😀 😀
*sniff, sniff, sniff*.


I think having sex with nine year olds pretty much covers it for the prophet. He did free some of the slaves that he porked and made them some of his 11 sister wives. Speaking of Slavery and the Religion of Peace, Oman abolished slavery in 1970, and Saudi Arabia and Yemen abolished slavery in 1962. Mauritania became the last state to abolish slavery August 2007. Those dates aren’t typos. Although I have never seen… Read more »


I guess I should mention that even though slavery is illegal in Mauritania (and everywhere) it is estimated that 25% of the population remain slaves. In Yemen perhaps 15%. Sudan had an open slave market into the 90s which has since gone underground. In SA… well let them talk: “In 2003, Shaykh Saleh Al-Fawzan, a member of Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body, the Senior Council of Clerics, issued a fatwa claiming “Slavery is a part… Read more »


I believe the term “loved” used here is a euphemism for “for unlawful carnal knowledge” but Der Commissar seems to not have a intuitive bone in his body.
For those in Rio Linda, I’m using bone as a replacement for another word.


But he does have a bone up his butt.

WTF are those political minion slugs going to do next, replace it with a statue of George Floyd? The movie “Idiocracy” was supposed to be a comedy, not a prophecy!

Veritas Omnia Vincit

Jefferson is easily my favorite founder for many reasons, most of which is easily viewed in a single comment he made. It does me no harm for neighbor to believe in twenty gods, or no god at all. It neither picks my pocket, nor breaks my leg. Meaning if there is no victim there is no crime and there is zero reason for any government interaction in this situation. With respect to the slave ownership,… Read more »


VoV, your post should be sent to every history teacher, in every grade from kindergarten to graduate school, read in assembly, framed and posted in the hallways of every school in America.


Every one of those men who signed the Declaration of Independence was putting his life, his property, and the survival of his family on the line. If the British Empire had won the war, they were all likely to hang for treason and their property forfeited to the Crown. Under English law that was the only penalty for treason, just like the only penalty for murder was death. Without their disregard for their own lives,… Read more »


That is one of the principal reasons that Bills of Attainder were specifically forbidden in the Constitution.


Spot on VoV…Nailed it. Preach on Brother, the Choir says AMEN! White people…the most evil ones that God placed on this Earth. They keep forgetting that one of the FIRST (ht 2 Roh-Dog) people that brought/had Africans as slaves in what is now known as America was a Black man. And his Black slaves were purchased from Black Africans. Anybody still think that the revision of History will stop when all of the Confederate War… Read more »

What about the Supreme Rulers VP harris who’s family owned slaves down in Jamaica way back in the day. How come she can’t be removed???????. Not to many people know about this because it doesn’t fit their narrative. I believe this came out in a book written by a relative.

A Proud Infidel®™

THAT fact doesn’t fit with the left’s agenda and propaganda, thus it gets censored.

Bill had a thing or two also.


I demand that Franklin Roosevelt be removed from the dime. His E.O. interned native born US citizens of Japanese descent in interment camps during WWII


So when are we getting outraged about the folks who perpetrated the original crime of making people saves? New World slave buyers didn’t just crap their new property, they purchased people who had already been enslaved. You have African shiefs, Arab traders, and all sorts of different nationality slave ship oners and operators, all of them in the game well before the slaveholders in the US. What about the Brits who sentenced poor English and… Read more »


MLK jr supported slavery thru his known/documented solicitation of prostitutes.
Statue gotta come down, ASAP!


So, what’s next? Someone deciding that it’s high-time to bulldoze/dynamite Mount Rushmore..?

History cannot be erased, revised or undone only learned from..


Reparation is not enough. Retribution is the name of the game.


Ahhh! Sorry, I’d almost entirely forgotten about that whole ‘mindless retribution’ thing…

I will seek reprogramming. Obviously, a worn memory chip…
