Fox News host Greg Gutfeld did an opening monologue on “Gutfeld!” Friday that excoriated liberals obsessed with tearing down statues honoring leaders such as Teddy Roosevelt instead of focusing on Democratically-led cities where people are dying in massive crime waves.
“So finally, justice has arrived. After all the rampant crime, the smash-and-grabs, the subway shovers, the brutal random murders of young women. Our leaders are finally doing something about it,” Gutfeld began tongue-in-cheek.
“Late Wednesday night, a statue of Theodore Roosevelt — that’s a president, Kat — was removed after standing in front of the American Museum of Natural History for more than 80 years. Yeah, instead of removing the vagrants who’ve been defecating, doing drugs, and assaulting people, go after the inanimate stiff — that’ll make life better,” he quipped.
He went on to point out the removal cost Manhattan $2 million.

“But where else would you like that money to go? For more policing in the subways or the streets where crime is rampant? Shut up, you bigot!” Gutfeld snarked.
After discussing the huge orange tarp used to cover the statue as it was removed, Gutfeld turned to one of Roosevelt’s descendants, who he has little use for.
“In the New York Post, they quote one of Teddy’s descendants, Theodore Roosevelt V, who cheered the removal, saying the statue is being relocated to a place where its composition can be recontextualized to facilitate difficult, complex, and inclusive discussions,” he noted. “Well, thank you, you pretentious *****. If Teddy were alive, he’d dress you up like a white rhino and chase you through Central Park with a 12-gauge.”
As he asserted that he doesn’t care about the statues, Gutfeld pointed out that Americans are actually more concerned with rampant crime, not progressive issues.
“It’s our craven leaders who are under the thumb of a tiny, woke mob. This, as crime explodes in every city run by libs. We hear the tragedies every day, but they don’t get the outrage you saw over statues in those heady days of the George Floyd riots when statues were dropping like Jeffrey Toobin’s pants during a Zoom call. Never gets old,” the conservative pundit joked.
“Now, many were of Confederate soldiers toppled by protesters, but it didn’t stop there, and even the city leaders joined in, just as one guy predicted,” he said pivoting to a prescient prediction by former President Trump in 2017:
“In the proud tradition of America’s great leaders from George Washington – please don’t take his statue down, please. Please. … To Lincoln, to Teddy Roosevelt, I see they want to take Teddy Roosevelt’s down, too,” Trump had said during a 2017 Arizona rally.
“They’re trying to figure out why — they don’t know. They’re trying to take away our culture. They’re trying to take away our history, and our weak leaders — they do it overnight. These things have been there for 150 years, for 100 years. … Weak, weak people,” Trump contended.
Gutfeld went on to list some of the statues that have been toppled including Confederate statues. The list included anti-slavery heroes, statues of governors, those who fought in the Union Army, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Gandhi, Andrew Jackson, Francis Scott Key, Ulysses S. Grant, Frederick Douglass, the Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ, and Columbus.

“And yet the media and our politicians thought it was progress that this would help cities and help people. But like what Disney did to ‘Star Wars,’ they destroyed something and replaced it with something worse,” he remarked.
“The rest of us, though, we knew this was an excuse for mayhem. A gateway for more than just destroying statues. And what came next? Businesses and police precincts destroyed. Nothing was sacred. And when looting is defended as a good thing, society is as backwards as Chris Cross’ pants. There’s a reference,” Gutfeld continued.
“It’s the broken window theory on meth. You let society go to hell, and it quite literally goes to hell. We have criminals released from prison to commit more crime on New York subways, L.A. bus stations, high-end furniture stores. They’ll stab you because they’re as soulless and cold as the statues being torn down. And yet, even now, the statues are still a priority because fake virtue-signaling is easier than dealing with real suffering,” he astutely commented.
“And politicians were just more terrified of the mob than they were of you. Bill de Blasio, Ted Wheeler, Jacob Frey. If they were any more yellow, they’d be on ‘The Simpsons.’ And now people are dying, in part because leaders felt a piece of stone was more harmful than a dude with a knife when the truth is, sometimes the statue is the only thing between you and the dude with a knife,” Gutfeld added.
“So now the only safe statue is the one in the White House. Until they make a real one of him — then they’ll tear it down in a heartbeat,” he concluded.
Many despise the tearing down of statues and they are equally disgusted by the actions of liberals in general who are worthy of being mocked:
Blue Bloods must now be canceled because Tom Selleck has a framed picture of Teddy Roosevelt in his NYPD Comissioners office

Libtards don’t love Teddy? I thought libtards love our national parks?-Teddy started the conservation movement. Also, Woodrow Wilson won cause Teddy ran as a 3rd party. Libtards love Wilson. They have never opened a book so they don’t know.

I’m seriously confused how people can be triggered by a statute. Get a life. They aren’t real. #Gutfeld

The Teddy Roosevelt statue will be replaced by a statue of #Gutfeld. He offends everyone on an equal basis.
