NYC Thomas Jefferson statue taken down to ‘bow to cancel culture’
The statue of Thomas Jefferson in New York’s City Hall has been taken down to “quell some fluttering breeze of wokeness,” according to Sky News host Chris Kenny.
“History and institutions matter; cancelling Thomas Jefferson is to empower ignorance,” Mr Kenny said.
“It is to turn your back on the very ideals of America and the free democratic world.
“However, imperfectly, these ideals have been put into practice, the ideals, as eloquently expressed by Jefferson, matter.”
