Statement on Monument Hunting by New York City Council from New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar

Brooklyn-NY…“Shootings are occurring day and night, tens of thousands of migrants are flooding our streets, an estimated 1,400 illegal pot shops are stinking up every corner of the city with the smell of burning cannabis, school bus drivers are threatening to strike, and what’s the New York City Council doing? It’s monument hunting again in yet another attempt to disparage our nation’s founders.

The City Council Cultural Affairs Committee — with its slightly Maoist ring — is once again hunting the statues of figures including President George Washington, President Thomas Jefferson, Peter Stuyvesant, and Christopher Columbus in a perverse historical dragnet. For all the faults of their eras, these figures are a crucial part of U.S. history. Those seeking their erasure may end up being a crucial part of New York’s demise.”
