Just about every week seems to bring some new attack on American history.
Now at Cornell, an Ivy League School, a bust of Abraham Lincoln has been removed from the library, along with a display of his Gettysburg Address.
Writing for The College Fix, editor-in-chief Jennifer Kabbany notes, “Someone complained, and it was gone.”
A biology professor who visits the library often was surprised to notice the display was missing. Kabbany writes, “He asked the librarians about it, and they had no details to provide, except to say it was removed after some sort of complaint, he said. It’s been replaced with, ‘well, nothing,’ Wayne said. The walls are white, according to photos Wayne took for The Fix. The bust and plaque had been on display in the library since at least 2013.”
