Fox News’ Bill Hemmer warned on Friday that the left is just one step away from canceling biblical characters now that American Presidents are getting ‘cancelled’.
The warning came during a segment on Fox News discussing Chicago officials putting a number of statues, including five of Abraham Lincoln under review.
Reporter Carley Shimkus called the move “violent,” “wrong,” and “illegal.”
“You have to wonder, are we in a transition period in our country right now where our grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren might not think of these people the way we do? They might not be taught in the same way we know them now. I say more statues, not less, not fewer. More opinions, more ideas, not less,” Shimkus said.
“Way, way back in the day when I was first working in local news, I was at a CBS affiliate in Springfield, Illinois, and Lincoln was everything. A part of every aspect of the city and there was even a sandwich named after Abraham Lincoln. I don’t think they’ll take the sandwich name away,” she added.
“If they start canceling American presidents, they’ll come after Bible characters next,” Hemmer said. “Mark my words, right?”
