De Blasio Assembles Diversity Squad to Vet ‘Oppressive’ Monuments

Written by  Mark Tapson

Right on the heels of his revealing declaration that if he had his 'druthers, he would like to eliminate private property, New York City's Mayor de Blasio announced on Friday the formation of a commission to recommend the removal of statues of controversial historical figures.

The New York Post reports that the city's Communist mayor named Ford Foundation President Darren Walker and Department of Cultural Affairs commissioner Tom Finkelpearl as co-chairs of the diverse panel, which is made up of 18 artists, historians and other professionals.

The group includes an anthropologist of the Native American Mohawk people, a historian of Chinese-American people in New York, the director of a gay and lesbian art museum, and former entertainer and fellow Communist Harry Belafonte.

“Over the next 90 days, the commission will develop guidelines on how the City should address monuments seen as oppressive and inconsistent with the values of New York City,” read a press release from the mayor’s office.

From The Post:

While the mayor has said the commission would take any and all recommendations from the public on which monuments on city property should be removed — or put in historical context through plaques or other means — he said on Friday the review would be limited to “a select few monuments and markers that have prompted understandably passionate public discourse.

I suggest ALL of the statues of Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as EVERY street names after him be removed and changed. MLK was a bigot who publicly espoused his disdain for homosexuals. Surely his bigotry should be erased from every corner of our PURE nation!

How about a "diversity squad" to vet oppressive Mayors? And who exactly put him in charge of this? And who makes up the criteria to "vet" these so called oppressive monuments. And how exactly does a monument oppress someone? If you don't like it, don't go look at it! Sorry, to much logic for a Liberal, their snowflake brain just blew up!

Good thing is that I live in Texas De Blasio and his yankee commie crap would not fly here. I dare you and the BLM and ANTIFA to come down here and try to remove a statue of Sam Houston. You sir would drop where you stand,it is history and you can't hide it or change it. Now go to your safe place, pout and cry. Maybe you can get a liberal to hug you and tell you it will be alright. It is that is what is wrong with America, socialism and communism do not work. History has proven it, which you want to erase and write as you and the other antiAmerican groups want. No sir, you will fail.

It is time to stop Communists again America. The Mayor, Bernie Sanders and all socialists and communists are enemies of our Republic. This is the root of AntiFa and KKK. Perhaps the most direct root to preserve freedoms is to destroy the modern Democrat Party the birth place of all cultural evil in the USA.

So strange that Blasio needs to waste taxpayer's money on rich guys to meet, when all he and the blazing liberal democrat's want to do is to destroy a free sovereign nation, to more easily integrate this nation into a socialist's dictatorial world police state, with the very people the taxpayer's are paying to decide the best way to lay waste to this free country, running the police state...damn...and the useful idiot's are buying in to what De Blasio is selling...???

Where does this communist clown get the legal power to revise history...?????........Were I a NY'er , there would be a tweet sent to gather the crowd to meet his diversity squad and follow them back to City Hall to inform them of the waste of time and money spent, the illegality of the act and the fact that there is no need for socialistic revisionism of American History since we are taught to handle our past and accept the rights and learn from the wrong......Communist cannot do this because the state is never wrong.....MAGA.........America for Americans............Is the commie Belafonte a American citizen?

I agree...But the liberal court's never require the democrat communist party to fallow the law...Obama as a case in point...???

Maybe it's time to assemble firing squads against those who wish to destroy our history?

AMEN TIM. Most of the statues the democrats are destroying are those of their own history Confederates...guess they don't know History that the confederates were mainly democrats, Guess many they are ashamed of their legacy, however the one they are creating now is no better, they are just repeating it in a different fashion. Out to destroy American rather then bilt it up, or by helping another person of different faith, color, or even registered differently then them to vote.
I don't believe I have ever seen a republican party destroy and of their statues or others either. they show respect to all regarding of race, creed or party to which they belong.
I am offended that any one wants to destroy the history of America which our forefathers fought to develop with law and orders, constitutions, which seem to not suit the democrats.

The democrats are the most vile, contemptible, collection of people the country has ever known! They along with establishment non conservative rinos must be met with the resolve of the American people who believe in liberty, Americanism and a way of life better than anywhere in the world!
