Then they came for the benches: Norway may cancel ‘PROBLEMATIC’ tribute to ‘racist’ botanist von Linne, who coined ‘Homo sapiens’
An Oslo park bench bearing the name of Carl von Linne, an 18th century Swedish scientist known as the prince of botanists and the founder of modern taxonomy, could be removed after local politicians have deemed him to be racist.
The Old Oslo borough council is calling for the removal of the bench, which is located in the district's Botanical Garden and has von Linne's name inscribed on its back. The request – the latest in a wave of leftist attacks on historical figures – is expected to be sent to the University of Oslo's Natural History Museum this week after being approved in a vote by the council last Thursday.
