Leftists are actively trying to revise history across the world through the lenses of their radical “woke” agenda.
Museums, memorials, and monuments are being torn down or revised to appease the “woke” mob as a result.
And historians in New York City are awestruck as this radical move takes effect.
The “woke” mob has prioritized revising history any way possible
In recent years, particularly following the death of George Floyd in 2020, radical Leftists have taken it upon themselves to dismantle American institutions.
This especially applies to institutions of historical importance, including museums and other historical exhibits.
For example, New York’s American Museum of Natural History closed two exhibits on Saturday, claiming that the exhibits are “severely outdated.”
Sean Decatur, the museum’s president, sent a letter to staff last Friday regarding these closures, claiming, “The halls we are closing are vestiges of an era when museums such as ours did not respect the values, perspectives, and indeed shared humanity of Indigenous peoples. Actions that may feel sudden to some may seem long overdue to others.”
Other museums across the nation have followed suit, with CBS News reporting that, “Earlier this month, Chicago’s Field Museum covered several displays containing Native American items. Harvard University’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology has said it would remove all Native American funerary items from its exhibits. The Cleveland Museum of Art is another institution that has taken similar steps.”
Shannon O’Loughlin, head of the Association on American Indian Affairs, has led the charge on this fight to remove these sorts of objects from museums, telling CBS News that, “Covering displays or taking things down isn’t the goal. It’s about repatriation — returning objects back to tribes. So this is just one part of a much bigger process.”
She added, “The only exception to repatriation is if a museum or institution can prove they received consent at the time the item was taken. But most institutions can’t do that, of course, because these items and bodies were usually taken through violence, theft, and looting.”
Other museums across the world have come under fire for displaying objects that the radical Left claims are stolen.
Many historians argue that these objects belong in these sorts of museums because it preserves these important parts of history, allowing the most amount of people possible to observe and respect them.
Radical leftists will not rest until every museum is torn down and rebuilt in their image
Much like the cultural revolutions that took place in China during the communist revolution, leftists in America want to dismantle American history and western culture.
These disgraceful acts in New York and elsewhere deprive millions of curious museum-goers from learning about America’s past, just so a handful of radical leftists can feel better about themselves, without doing anything to improve the lives of American Indians.
Before too long, America’s historical institutions will become a hallow shell of their former glory.
