Black Lives Matter scored one victory that left Donald Trump fuming
Black Lives Matter agitators took to the streets weeks in an effort to overthrow the American social order.
Democrats cheered anarchy in American cities because they thought it guaranteed victory in November.
And now Black Lives Matter scored one victory that left Donald Trump fuming.
For the past several days, Black Lives Matter activists across America tore down statues of historical figures such as Ulysses S. Grant, Francis Scott Key, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson.
The movement went far beyond removing Confederate memorials to fully erasing American history.
That campaign reached New York City as the Museum of Natural History announced it would remove statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt from in front of the building because it was racist museum President Ellen Futter told The New York Times in an interview.
“Over the last few weeks, our museum community has been profoundly moved by the ever-widening movement for racial justice that has emerged after the killing of George Floyd,” Futter explained. “We have watched as the attention of the world and the country has increasingly turned to statues as powerful and hurtful symbols of systemic racism.”
“Simply put,” Futter also told the Times, “the time has come to move it.”
President Trump – who is also a native New Yorker – ripped the politically correct and cowardly decision on social media.
Ridiculous, don’t do it! https://t.co/VYez8p9AJh

So far the Fake News Media protected Joe Biden from answering questions on Black Lives Matter activists tearing down statues of historical figures.
Any answer Biden gives is bad for his campaign.
If Biden opposes tearing down statues, then he risks alienating younger minority voters he already struggled to win over.
If Biden supports tearing down the statues, he risks driving away swing voters.
But Biden can’t hide forever and sooner or later he will have to address this question.
