Hemmer: If cancel culture can take down American presidents, bible characters are next

Fox News’ Bill Hemmer shocked fans on Friday by warning that if cancel culture is allowed to go after American historical figures, bible characters are up for cancellation as well. 

Though Black Lives Matter protests have largely died down now that Donald Trump is out of office, conversations about “canceling” historical figures — even Abraham Lincoln, who was murdered for his role in the emancipation of American slaves — have continued.

While discussing a Chicago initiative in which discussions about reviewing and potentially removing statues of historical figures, including Lincoln, around the city, Hemmer commented that the left won’t stop there.

“If they start canceling American presidents, they’ll come after Bible characters next,” Hemmer said. “Mark my words, right?”

The Chicago initiative seeks to review statues placed around the city that may promote “narratives of white supremacy,” present “inaccurate and/or demeaning characterizations of American Indians,”  and memorialize “individuals with connections to racist acts, slavery and genocide.”

Fox News co-host Dana Perino expressed surprise that Chicago may be purging Lincoln from its list of honored citizens as Lincoln has been widely celebrated in the state of Illinois — which he considered his home state despite being born in Kentucky — for over 150 years.

“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,” Perino said. “A part of every aspect of the city and there was even a sandwich named after Abraham Lincoln.”

Of course, Hemmer’s comments have been mercilessly mocked across social media, but Hemmer is right.

Only a few years ago, it would be unthinkable to target Abraham Lincoln as an accessory to white supremacy or some other such nonsense, but the narrative has been hijacked by people that have learned how to play the race card so effectively that one can’t even point out the logical conclusion of the madness without being canceled themselves.

  1. The most historical Christian figure is Jesus and He resides in us.He also told us that we will be persecuted but we also have the host of the armies of God in our side

    1. Personally, I believe that we are at some point in the last days before Christ’s return. GOD’S word tells us about the ever growing evil that we will see as the DEVIL trys to make his last stand. Given the unabashed, unapologetic growth of evil on a daily basis we need to look no further than our own despicable Politicians to see the complete disregard for truth as lying has become the order of the day. The complete corruption present today is sickening and is proof positive that GOD’S WORD is true!!!!

    2. sadly, we do not have a pope to stand by us as we have had in the past. the communist in the vatican is doing nothing in our behave

      1. . . . Perhaps the other orders’ reasoning was correct. . . They collectively had decided that a Jesuit was never to be Pope. . . I wonder what they knew that perhaps we should have also known.

    3. Well we KNOW that Waters, Pelosi, Schummer, Biden, Harris, Shiff, Cheney, AOC,Pressley, Talibe, Omar, Swalwell, Nadler, and many more DEMWITTS will FEEL THE WRATH of GOD, maybe not in this world but the next !

      1. I don’t care if it’s only 1 day, or 1/2 a day, I want Hillary to spend some time in prison before she dies. I want her to know that her legacy will be that of a convicted FELON.

    4. What gives the left the “freedom of speech” to say others can’t say something they don’t agree with? Freedom of speech is a universal right endowed to everyone in the USA, not just the nut cases on the left! Here’s what I have to say. . . I hereby cancel cancel culture!

  2. A few years ago none of the things going on politically today would have been condoned.
    A few years ago, we had standards which precluded activities such as “open borders, Antifa/BLM, unlimited murder of fetuses, and the desecration of our national heritage.
    A few years ago, schools taught students about the struggles of creating this country.
    Now? NOT SO MUCH! Shame!

    1. A few years ago we had a real draft and people from all walks of life had the opportunity to find out what it means to protect our freedoms. A few years ago we did not need to worry about loosing our freedom from within our own country.

      1. I have been espousing this for the past decade! THANK YOU! Draft doesn’t necessarily mean one must be a member of a military unit or any armed forces but a true participant in this ever changing tapestry we call our home. Those drafted could easily be part of recovery actions in cases of destruction from natural or man made disasters or helping struggling neighborhoods to catch up with others more successful. There are a multitude of good causes that could be addressed by those inducted into the USDS, United States Draft Service, and it would certainly go a long way in perpetuating pride in this wonderful nation that our brave forefathers paid the price to gift to us! Perhaps one year of service would pay for one year of education?

  3. Yes, let them put all their energy and funding into that project because in the end all will be on their knees.

  4. AMEN TO THE ABOVE COMMENTS! Wake up America! The idiots who don’t want to recognize our history for what it was and is today, just don’t get it. Yes, there were some bad parts to our history but you learn from history and try to correct it! The people of TODAY did not kill Indians, did not kill people of color, did not own slaves, it was a bad part of history but Lincoln FREED THE SLAVES, be grateful not shameful! I am just so amazed at the stupidity of some people, embrace history not delete it!!

  5. I agree with those above. We were taught respect to those who came before us and made this country so great that others wanted desperately to come to America. Now we have thousands who want to come here to escape their country’s persecution, BUT they carry their home country’s flag and want to change America to be like the country they came from. WHY, then did they bother to come here. They should go home and fight to make their country what they want it to be! So sad! God bless us all!

  6. Our leftoid imbeciles are brain dead. They may be able to read what is written for them, but probably cannot tolerate reading something they know nothing about. In MY view, this mess could have been stopped had our politicians INSISTED WE RE-DO THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND THIS TIME BE SURE IT IS DONE CORRECTLY AND COUNTED CORRECTLY. I could not believe that our “government” would not insist on a REAL election a week or so following the lack of an honest election. I STILL want to see another Presidential Election to put a stop to these thieves and worthless “humans”. For intelligent people to bow to imbeciles is as stupid as stupid can possibly be.

    1. You are taking the words out of my mouth, Kathy. I always wanted another election, only for it to be an HONEST and CREDIBLE election. I suppose there were so many people behind it with $$$$$$$ that the fraud part was not to be publicized, nor the Dominion computer software switching Trump votes to Biden not to mention all the fraudulent mail-in ballots by the thousands which were mostly for Biden. It was a STOLEN ELECTION FROM TRUMP. He is the REAL PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. We all know this. Look at what has happened since Bogus Biden has been in the W.H…..he has undone all the good Trump did and now it is all BAD. They even want to strip Trump of all amenities he has from being POTUS including no burial at Arlington Cemetery. How vindictive and hateful they are because of fear, jealousy and their greed for the almighty dollar.

      1. Try googling “The Navarro Report”. You’ll get all the information about the “irregularities” from the Nov. 3rd election night. This is the information that the courts will not look at. Highly disgusting!

    1. It was a savage world, and still is. Early settlers were savagely attacked. One of my grandparents was kidnapped by an Indian tribe, after they arrived and settled an area. Bible History shares Egyptian slavery of Jews, Even today, Muslims have enslaved and abused many, often Christians or any, who attempt to leave the cult. It’s terrible what they do to their own family, who threaten to leave Islam. Research, how Muslim Jihadists infiltrated many areas, and the brutality they use today. Jihadists gave Hitler some of his barbaric attacks on the Jews, Germans and the world. The Communist Manifesto game plan to remove historic sites is a purge, often, to show they are conquering the culture, and the nation, as they did in Venezuela. We are foolish to allow them to touch personal property. That push treads on our rights and freedoms.

    2. wholeheartedly agree. we have been doling out freebies for too many years to the afro blacks far toolong. it’s time to help our native people before more handouts to the blacks and illegals.

  7. I so tired of all of this hate. The definition of racist is:

    prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership in a
    particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.

    Are these people not being racist themselves? I was always thought to treat other people how you would want to be treated. If you don’t agree with someone on their views you should agree to disagree and not spread hate around. These days it feels like anyone with a Caucasian heritage is a racist. I have always treated people how I want to be treated regardless of their heritage.

    1. JD I am in my late 60’s I grew up in a community that was a melting pot for
      different races of people, White, Black, German, Mexican, Polish, Japanese, and I’m sure several others also, we lived on the outer edge of our city, I admit we were different from most of our city’s areas, but we lived in harmony there and were taught to respect each other, we ate together, stayed over with each other, had shared gardens, fruit tree orchards, took care of each other if there was illness, back then neighbors would go shopping together usually on the weekend, and would leave whomever was not going in charge of all the children, and it didn’t matter what race that person or people were, if the kids got in trouble while the parents were gone, they got spanked, per their parents, and they would get another one when the parents came home. [ “You say hate is prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized. ] Anyone being part of one of these groups that are going out and destroying hard working people’s homes, businesses, rioting, looting, taking over city blocks, and police stations, and any people dying is not the answer? I don’t care what group anyone belong to, if anyone does this, they are the Racists, and those doing this don’t want to help themselves, unless they can have it for free. you only point out that whites are the Racists, which is totally untrue, I don’t know you, but I do wish you well, and hope you can learn to discern that racism is not limited to one race.

  8. Jesus is coming back. Everyone needs to quit hating, and start getting ready to receive him. All are equal in is eyes and he loves us each and every one. May God bless.

  9. Would someone please tell me why BLM and Antifa hasn’t been dismantled already..? We hear of some weak kneaded approach of placing them on a watch list or perhaps domestic terrorist list….but then our most intelligent and illustrious Washington politicians sit back thinking they have really done something great….but we all continue to watch them profligate still. I cannot tell any more who are the terrorist….the politicians or the BLM and Antifa. They all stink with that same rank odor..! If I didn’t know better, I’d think we’re all living in South Africa…..where anything white is deemed worthless and insignificant. Again…………..it’s the…”few”…dictating to the majority what our society should and shouldn’t be. Sorry guys………..I am not buying it………!!!!! January 6th all belonged to BLM and Antifa. Manipulating the public and bending they’re will to line up with the communist agenda of taking over our country.

    1. We have to encourage our Republican politicians to stand against the Marxist BLM and Antifa. Only a few seem to dare stand against them. Many politicians & former sites have been blocked and canceled by Communist Big Tech to dominate the news as Hitler did.

  10. These little groups like antifa and blm are nothing as long as we stand together. If they try to eliminate Jesus that would be a big mistake for these groups to try. These statues are a part of our history and need to be put on the same level as our constitution. These groups like antifa and blm are not putting their communities in the catergory of being protected as they state there are. They are no more than thugs, the same as the ones that particapated in the invasion of the capital on January 6th even though the media have fingered Trumpers for the riot. When Biden makes a directive that they don’t like, BLM and Antifa will be gunning for him. When that happens then everyone will see that the vast number of Trumpers were not involved with the riot. Most were there peacefully. These people that want the statues removed are a tiny groups. Remember the civil war was not about slavery, it was about economics, taxation, and the federal government dictating how businesses were going to be ran. That didn’t go over well as most know. Freeing the slaves came into play the 2 years of the war and the reason was the north needed more troops. Freeing the slaves was on the table way before the civil war but it seemed no one was in a big hurry to initiate it. The north and the south truly believed in what their cause was. The south just wanted the Federal government to stay out of their business. Don’t take my word for it, research this comment yourself. This a very short verision of history about the civil war please check out yourself.

  11. LIE # 1 > CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. THERE IS NO SUCH THING
    LIE # 2 > THE BILL 0F RIGHTS, THE FIRST TEN AMMENDMANTS THESE AMMENDMENTS DO NOT GIVE YOU ANY RIGHTS, THEY ARE THERE TO SET LIMITS ON THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. BY DENYING THEM ANY POWER TO CHANGE THEM IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, FORM OR FASHON. TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE SO CALLED BILL OF RIGHTS IS,
    I REFUR YOU TO THE DECOLARATION OF INDEPENDANCE WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT, THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL WITH CERTAIN UNALENIABLE RIGHTS { GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS } RIGHTS THAT CAN-NOT BE TAKEN AWAY, BY A LEGISLATIVE ACT OF CONGRESS. OR THE PRESIDENT UNLESS A DYRE EMERGENCY OCCURS.
    NOW THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. SETS THE REQUIREMENTS AND LIMITATIONS ON ALL ELECTED OR APPOINTED SERVANTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
    AT THIS TIME THANKS TO NANCY PELOSI AND HER LIKE MINDED CO-CONSPIRITORS THE U.S.A. IS A DEMOCRACY , YOU CAN TELL THIS IS SO BY ALL THE KAOS AND CONFUSION SURRONDING US BROUGHT ON BY TWO LOST IMPEACHMENT’S, AND THE BIAS OF ALL THE NEWS MEDIA.
    BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND OUR LORD AND SAVOIR JESUS CHRIST, THIS NATION WILL REMAIN AS A REPUBLIC UNTIL THE JUDGEMENT DAY, THEN IT WILL BECOME THE KINGDOM OF GOD. AMEN AND AMEN

  12. I’m surprised that they haven’t cancelled the entire Bible already then they could cancel EVERYONE and ANYONE who disagreed, which would include (lol) pro-abortion-anytime-devout-hypocrite-Catholic China Joe (well, maybe, if his Puppet Masters thought he shouldn’t).

  13. Those in BLM who think they should be canceling Biblical characters seem to forget that the Semetic races are technically cossik
    considered to be one of the colored races of the world

  14. This country is in a real mess, politically, religiously, and morally, the people in the streets have reeked havoc on our country as a whole, they can destroy a lot of things, but, they CANNOT destroy the Bible or those in the Bible, God’s word is omnipotent, and they may revert to not speaking of him, and those in the bible, but, he has always been in charge of all things, past, present, and future. There is not a rock, hill, or mountain, you can hide under, to get away from him, but some day when he returns, many will wish they could, I pray all repent, but he has the final say. prayers for all.

  15. They will cancel all religions, each and everyone of them do point fingers at their issues, problems, etc……SO they will cancelling everything and everyone…even to themselves into oblivion…
    Is there a test to decide if that unborn is one of them?
    How would they feel if there is test that can literally cancel them out by abortions, eh?
    Where would they be if they were aborted?

  16. All that I have been hearing lately is about how let New Yorkers down, why is no one talking about how people like Pelosi have let people down, Pelosi we her following the house has held up relief bills played partisan politics with the lives of American citizens Democrats and Republicans a like, which shows she is totally bipartisan she will kill to get power. It is hard to tell how many have died because of her ambitions, if her name was Trump she would have been executed a long time ago. So, why are the people tolerating her behavior, she is worse than Cuomo, and should suffer a fate worse than Cuomo.

  17. Everyone wonders where the Anti-Christ is. if you can read then you should know where he is. The Anti-Christ as we know him is called the Social Media + Main Stream Media. Yes the Anti-Christ is already here. He has been invading you home and lives for quit some time. He is trying to tell you what to think, what to say, what to do, what to believe. So pay attention to him, he will ruin your life and cause you much pain.

  18. Stupid said that, if you want to murder teachers then you are a republican. This guy is a real kooky democrat. Republicans don’t want to murder teachers we just want to beat some sense into them, it is the far left that wants to murder them. Just read the rants and you will see this for your self.

  19. Some one said something about McConnel threating to purge the GOP of Trump supporters. I wish to make a correction. It is not Mitch that will purge the GOP of Trump supporters. It will be Trump supporters that will purge the GOP of Mitch McConnel. McConnel forgets that with out them he would not have gotten reelected, and now he has chosen to try to cut Trumps throat. He is in for a rude awakening. He crossed the wrong people this time. Time to pay the piper.

  20. Biden has proven that he has a serious problem, and needs to take a mental test, as he is showing that he does not have the mental acuity necessary to do the job, and he is doing more damage to the country than Obama did.

  21. CHRISTIANS ARE UNDER ATTACK! NOT SINCE WE WERE THE AFTERNOON ENTERTAINMENT AND LUNCH FOR THE LIONS HAS PERSICUTION BEEN SO BAD. THIS CHRISTIAN REFUSES TO TURN THE OTHER CHEEK ITS TIME TO BECOME ONCE AGAIN SOLDIERS OF CHRIST

  22. These people who want to remove history from the public square may get exactly what they apparently do not want. We already have people saying that the Holocaust did not happen. Thank God General Eisenhour said “get all the pictures of the horror that you can get because in 50 years some so and so will be saying it never happened”
    When you remove all reference to evil eventually people will say it NEVER happened.
    Be careful what you wish for should be the reply to the people calling for the removal of all references to slavery and other evils.

  23. Get a life you radical dems. There are so many more important things to deal with besides who in history you can cancel. Do something good for a change.

  24. Thank you for every other magnificent post. Where else may anybody get that type of info in such
    a perfect manner of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week,
    and I’m at the search for such information.
