To paraphrase Xerxes from 300: ‘There will be no glory in your sacrifice. We will erase even the memory of White America from the histories. Every piece of White American parchment shall be burned, and every White American historian and every scribe shall have their eyes put out and their tongues cut from their mouths! Why, uttering the very name of Washington or Jefferson or other Dead White Males will be punishable by death! The world will never know you existed at all! [NYC Mayor de Blasio ‘assumes’ Jefferson statue will be removed from City Hall, punts responsibility, New York Daily News, October 14, 2021]:

Mayor de Blasio said Thursday he expects a statue of Thomas Jefferson will get the heave-ho from City Hall after a design commission he appointed reviews a request to remove it next week.

If approved, the request, which originated with City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and the Council’s Black, Latino and Asian Caucus, would result in the statue of the Founding Father being moved out of the City Council chamber and housed indefinitely at the New York Historical Society

The statue has stood in City Hall for nearly 200 years, but is coming up for review by de Blasio’s Public Design Commission because of Jefferson’s history as a slave owner.

The commission is expected to review the matter on Monday.

“I start with the assumption that it will be approved, but I don’t know. That’s ultimately a decision that that commission makes,” he said. “The City Council spoke out of their belief of what is right for their chamber, for their side of City Hall, and that to me is just a straightforward matter. If that’s what they feel, I want to respect them as another branch of government.”

De Blasio, whose term ends in December, suggested that while he appointed the 11-member design commission, they would act independently of him and exercise their own judgment. He also was quick to point out that the request to remove it didn’t originate with him or his wife First Lady Chirlane McCray, who he appointed to review the fate of the Jefferson statue and others last year.

“It came from the Council, not me or the First Lady,” de Blasio said.

The statue’s removal from City Hall is listed as a so-called consent item on the design commission’s agenda, meaning the 11-member panel of architecture and museum notables will vote up or down after reviewing public comments submitted virtually.

The push to remove statues of historic figures is not without its detractors, though.

“It stinks,” said Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island). “It’s like de Blasio is leaving a gallon of milk outside the fridge at Gracie Mansion and won’t be there to smell the results.”

This will only go on as long as we allow it to.

  1. A statue of a black transgender military figure — say, Lloyd Austin or a pregnant Air Force pilot — would look just marvelous in that spot once the evil old cracker is removed.

  2. Trevor says:

    This erasure of the history of Western Civilization will only get worse during this, the third term of the puppet aka OBama+Valerie Jarrett using sub-puppets OBiden and OHarris under puppet masters (((Soros, Suckerberg, et. al.))). Most of Obama’s former minions are back in place in the government.

    They will support the negroes who are the ones (along with their leftist/marxist/ communist white enablers) who really want to tear the statues down and destroy white civilization itself as well as its history.

    The Asians and most Latinos really just don’t care
    about the statues one way or the other, but are perfectly OK with an increasingly third world USSA thereby fulfilling aka Obama’s stated goal of “fundamentally transforming the USA”.

  3. So I presume we’re getting rid of that whole “All men are created equal” thingy, too. Right?

  6. And the march toward NAZI Germany continues. Goebbels would be proud of what these scum are accomplishing today at record pace, soon the only thing left to do will be the building of the crematoriums.

  7. “I want to respect them as another branch of government.” Annnnnd there it is. This whole country is being run by another “branch” of government. And all these “branches” are diversity personified and they are there to destroy America and everything that Whites built. Right back to the stone age. And with Whites out of the way let the tribal squabbling and infighting commence as all these diversity geniuses fight over the last scraps from the corpse of a once proud and strong first world super power. Let China rule and Russia , I don’t give a shit anymore. It is OVER! No amount of voting of pontificating about the Constitution is going to do one damn thing. So stop talking and acting like it will. Soon there will be a national televised event of the burning of the Constitution. Watch with joy in your heart . This is what you get for worshiping blacks for blacks are the backdoor for all this anti American BS. There are no real black Americans so stop looking and knock it off. In the end they ALL want Whitey removed and replaced, by people that look like them. That’s all you here from blacks. Even the ones that are government officials. The Nosebergs are just another symptom. So don’t just say because of the Nosebergs. blacks hate Whitey just fine on their own and have no problem breeding out your White daughters and pimping out your White wives.

    Can we stop with the Nazi obsession please? Whenever someone in the mainstream invokes the term “Nazi” in 2021 it’s ostensibly done so as a tool to attack whites and to beat down any hints of us banding together into a collective force. You don’t have to like the Nazis (I don’t), but it’s a simple fact that in our culture “Nazi” is now a synonym for any white person who dares stray from the plantation. Don’t do their job for them by using their terminology.

  13. @PhilMuhCrevis

    Hopefully this time they will remember to connect the crematoriums to the chimneys as the Russians forgot to do in a couple of the camps when they built the chimneys after taking the camps. I will be more inclined to believe Putin is not a NWO pawn if he admitted to what Stalin did along those lines rather than trying to glorify the criminal. We need the truth now not the fantasies.

  14. Pirate999 says:

    The practice of “Damnatio memoriae” removing all evidence of the existence of a dead public figure or leader can be traced back to antiquity. Roman emperors frequently destroyed all monuments that depicted a vanquished rival, for example the emperor Caracalla tried to remove or erase all the portraits of and references to his brother Geta from the historical record. Today in America the historical European Christian culture and the historical figures associated with it are being erased by the American anti-Christian ruling class. The destruction of the Christian culture is being met with indifference by most Americans who are slaves to addictions like drugs, sexual liberation and internet porn.

    It’s pretty simple.. There is one group following many of the same methods the NAZI’s used when they dehumanized the Jewish population. Destroying history and crushing those that won’t carry their piss buckets are just two things Hitler would applaud in today’s leftist agenda.

  23. This is utterly asinine. A statue of Jefferson, the most philosophical of the founders, having his statue removed because he owned slaves and may have dallied with one or two such females. This blemish on his character hardly negates his towering intellect and achievements, you New York political scumbags.

    Only woke assholes would cry “Oooo, he had slaves, he’s a bad man, let’s toss him down the memory hole.” Some news for you, morons — lots of people had slaves in that era. It was considered normal all over the world until the mid-19th century. It still exists today.

    Going back in time and amplifying something that most people today accept as wrong is itself wrong; when it overshadows a giant like Jefferson’s greatness it is disgusting. It was a different era, you jerks. Jefferson and the other founders were born into a time when slavery was the norm. They wrestled with the problem, but couldn’t see a way out of it. This woke shit has got to stop somewhere — maybe this trashing of Jefferson will start some meaningful pushback. BTW, New York politicians, he was worth 100 times the best of you.

    The problem with the analogy is that the slur “Nazi” instantly evokes in the minds of most people a regime that regarded Jews as a dangerous influence and their presence in a nation as an obstacle to creating a healthy, well-ordered society.
    That parallel just doesn’t work when speaking about today’s leftists.

    You are totally clueless.

    You have zero understanding of what happened in Weimar Germany.

    Organized jewry had completely taken over (just like today) and they shit all over the German people.
    Jewry pushed every sort of degeneracy you can imagine. The jews declared war on Germany and destroyed the currency…..causing hyperinflation.

    The “Notzees” simply IMITATED organized jewry by implementing:
    ingroup preference
    outgroup hostility
    genetic purity

    They were fighting fire with fire (and they had every right to do so)

    The German people knew what the rotten jews had just done to Russia…..and they knew they were NEXT.

    Hitler made a deal with the zionists to send the jews to Palestine (The Transfer Agreement)

    There was NEVER any coordinated effort to harm the jews in Germany (and to date there is zero proof of any plan to harm jews)

    The current issue is…..what do you do with a crew of paranoid assholes that hate your guts and want to genocide your people?

    The poor Germans (like the poor white Americans) just want to be left the fuck alone.

    NONE of this shit was initiated by whites.

    ALL of the dissension and strife has been caused by paranoid small hat shitheads.

    You’ve got it backwards. The Nazis were a response to the same situation in Germany that America and other Western countries are facing now. In South Africa we called it “white-anting”; the destruction of our civilisation by subversion, by the same culprits.

    You should be careful of “Nazi” comparisons. I think most people here are a little more sophisticated than your average holocaust fetishist. Do a bit of research. Look into the Leuchter Report, by an actual designer of gas chambers for executions, who concluded that there were no homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz. Read up on David Cole, a Jew who reached the same conclusion after visiting the camp. Watch a few videos on YouTube of David Irving, a real historian who did real research. He was the man who exposed the fake Hitler diaries. His descriptions of the “gas chamber”, with a glass window in the door and a two-inch gap under it, make nonsense of the popular myths.

    Likewise, no crematoria have been found remotely capable of the legends attributed to them. That impressive chimney at Auschwitz was all for show. Nor mass graveyards. That BS you heard about swallowing diamonds every day and excreting them later? Fairy stories. No homicidal masturbating machines, no lampshades, no soap, no homicidal diesel trucks, no electrified floors, no shrunken heads. No blood spurting from the ground when Elie Wiesel walked on the sacred soil. All BS.

  30. Latinos?

    People whose ancestors conquered and wiped out tens of millions of natives?
    People who imported 12x the black slaves that US did?

    And if Asians are offended by an America created by white ‘racists’, why come here and take part in it?

    But it’s white cuckery that created the moral/cultural vacuum being filled by anti-whites.

    There are certain similarities, but there are also glaring differences.

    The Germans wanted to maintain and preserve their traditional way of life, yet they were being confronted by factions who were trying to usurp this way of life. The Germans were trying to ward OFF this threat.

    In the U.S. case, these same usupers have been much sneakier this time. They knew that in order to bring ON the change they wanted, they would have to do it slowly. It takes time to buy off, blackmail and threaten politicians in order to have laws changed. It takes money to control the media and the education system and lots of time to indoctrinate the public. It takes time to get your people into key positions within government (essentially own the bureaucracy) and academia, and to take over the judiciary. It takes time and lots of immigration, against the wishes of the citizens, to change demographics. And if you control the banking system and the Federal Reserve, you can smother a population in debt in order to control them.

    Once all that is in place, and if there isn’t a Hitler on the horizon (and if there were, he would just be assassinated), they strike, as if out of the blue. The people whose ancestors built the country (the pioneers) are denigrated and spit on, their statues dismantled, their way of life destroyed.

    A coup by stealth.

    Yes, it is simple: the usupers, having accomplished everything listed in my third paragraph, are now desperately trying to get out AHEAD of the inevitable pushback they know is coming by painting THEMSELVES as victims, and blaming and shaming the traditional citizens. Classic psychopathic behavior.

    But the giant is awakening and the usupers are afraid. As well they should be. When you set out to steal something that is not yours for the taking, it never works out well.

    So she either worked for an asshole, or her corporate team was underperforming and her boss was getting the screws put to him by upper management. Cry me a river, it’s called the real world honey, sink or swim.

    I worked for a guy who was a high strung, weight of the world on his shoulders (in his head), yeller, who was constantly yelling and losing his shit. I had heard stories about him from other guys in our company that were afraid to work with him, or about the times they got yelled at by him, and so on. When I finally ended up working on one of his projects, we became fast friends and worked well together. I saw he was organized, knew what he was doing and took pride in how the finished work looked. The guys who were complaining he was such an asshole to work for were the type of employees who would show up late in the morning, do sloppy work, stop working as soon as he wasn’t around, spent 1/2 the day staring at their phones, always needed to borrow tools, etc. I understood then where he was coming from, especially since we were working on a deadline and had to meet certain schedules, otherwise we were holding up the project.

    The girl who wrote that article, sounds like one of the lazy employees I described. Failing to understand WHY her boss was angry (notice she didn’t include it in her BS story), other than he was a white male in a position of power.

    Churchill himself said “We butchered the wrong pig”.

    If Churchill had been an honest man, he would have (must have) known that from the start; but he was in the pockets of a group known as The Focus, who bought his soul when he got into financial trouble. Hitler never wanted war with Britain. Churchill forced it on him, in obedience to his masters, the usual suspects.

    From Metapedia:

    The Focus for the Defence of Freedom and Peace, but known as The Focus Group and originally the British Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi Council to Champion Human Rights, was a propaganda lobby group in the United Kingdom, founded in 1935 in response to a call by the Board of Deputies of British Jews, as part of an attempt to undermine National Socialism and turn people against Germany.

    I have pointed out that there is still literal open air slave markets in Libya and many other African countries still going on today, where you can purchase a slave for around \$400. Which shows how much they have depreciated since the 1600s. I always like to point this out to people who are making excuses for 200 years ago, but willing to do nothing about it today. Some groid can be stupid enough to put Gorilla Glue in it’s hair and make \$300k from GoFundMe contributions, but actually human slavery, THE WORST THING EVER, is still going on in modern times and these oppressed Africans in America couldn’t give 2 shits about their less fortunate cousins back in the motherland.
