Last month, the museum covered the 10-foot-tall statue with an orange tarp ahead of its shipment to the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora, North Dakota. …”
As I said in November, the Democratic Party has a clear brand.
Our friend Professor Thomas Main, the author of The Rise of Illiberalism, lives in New York City where Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt have recently been cancelled.
Note: Last time I checked, we aren’t the ones cancelling Jefferson.
