The Hill reports:
Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer said Friday that “cancel culture” will “come after Bible characters next” during a discussion of the Chicago initiative to review historical statues in the city, including ones of former President Abraham Lincoln.
“If they start canceling American presidents, they’ll come after Bible characters next,” Hemmer said. “Mark my words, right?” The Black Lives Matter movement has put renewed focus on statues and monuments across the country.
