Maybe he’s going to replace it with a Garden of Weirdos.
It’s not surprising is it? If someone is a hero, that could hurt the sensibilities of someone who is not considered a hero. We don’t want to engage in mediocrity-shaming!
Our new country doesn’t recognize excellence. It recognizes inclusivity. Everybody wins! And definitely, nobody loses.
We are no longer just created equal. The outcome of our efforts must be equal.
That has been tried in the Soviet Union and China, and a lot of people have died and suffered as a result.
According to the New York Post:
President Joe Biden has revoked a trio of executive orders issued by former President Donald Trump that sought to punish vandalism of statues and to build a new National Garden of American Heroes.
A July 2020 order envisioned a National Garden of American Heroes that “should be located on a site of natural beauty that enables visitors to enjoy nature, walk among the statues, and be inspired to learn about great figures of America’s history.”
A follow-up Trump order in January specified that the statue garden would honor, among other notables, Kobe Bryant, Julia Child, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Alex Trebek.
Biden’s decision was announced in a Friday afternoon email nearly a year after nationwide anti-police brutality protests resulted in widespread damage to monuments, especially those honoring slaveholders.
