Cancel culture could “come after Bible characters next,” warned Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer on Friday, during a segment about Chicago putting dozens of its monuments under review.
The initiative was designed to “grapple with the unacknowledged — or often forgotten history” of the city and “develop a framework for marking public space that elevates new ways to memorialize Chicago’s history more equitably and accurately,” said Hemmer’s co-anchor Dana Perino, reading a statement from the city.
“Forty-one Chicago monuments are under review,” said reporter Carley Shimkus. “Five are of Abraham Lincoln in Illinois — the land of Lincoln. His statue might be removed from the city.”
