Back in August, hundreds of students at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill protested a Confederate statue on campus. Now, 17 UNC senior faculty members are threatening to tear the statue down if the school doesn’t take it down before Thursday, according to The Daily Tar Heel.
The professors say UNC Chancellor Carol Folt’s “continuing inaction on the issue had placed in jeopardy the personal safety of students, faculty.” Listen, I know you don’t have a good understanding of how reality works, progressives, but the statue of Silent Sam isn’t going to hop off its pedestal and start unloading on people. Or maybe their safety is at risk if they try tearing it down and, in their compassionate, tolerant, moblike mentality, the statue happens to flatten one of their skulls.
Honestly, this is like a terrorist saying his safety is at risk. Yeah. That’s because you’re trying to break the law. The professors say “we believe the Confederate monument (Silent Sam) must be immediately moved to an appropriate setting that contextualizes and teaches the history of white supremacy, rather than glorifies it.”
And here we have the facile old argument that monuments celebrate or romanticize history. Well, guess what? Not everyone thinks that. A September 2017 survey showed that 57 percent of Americans think Confederate statues should stay up. Some see statues as simply displaying history, not making judgments on it. Some see them as beautiful bits of architecture. Still others simply see them as the things their dog pees on in the park. But then again there’s always a small, shrill minority who think inanimate objects are capable of racial prejudice and are willing to shove, shout, anything but actually talk and listen.
Prof: Dr. Ford ‘Told The Truth,’ Nominates Her For Award
Every year, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill gives out a “Distinguished Alumna and Alumnus Award” to up to five alumni who have “made an outstanding contribution to humanity in any walk of life,” reported Campus Reform.
For the 2019 award, UNC English professor Jennifer Ho wrote a letter recommending Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who made the unsubstantiated claim that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her.
“What Dr. Blasey Ford did on September 27, 2018 was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was; she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” the professor wrote.
“She told the truth.” How does Jennifer Ho know this? Was she at that 1982 party? Someone better tell the FBI.
“By awarding Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as a distinguished alumna, UNC Chapel Hill sends a message to her, to our students, faculty, and staff, and to the larger community of the US and the world that we believe her – that UNC Chapel Hill believes survivors of sexual assault.”
Yes, but the problem is, you DON’T know what actually happened. I guess when it comes to Ho, feelings don’t care about her facts. And none of this should be too surprising when you look at Jennifer’s scholarly work, consisting of publications like this complaint about pink being feminine called “No F****** Pink Ribbons! Is It Time For The Bow To Go?,” as well as English courses with titles like “Mixed Race America” and “Critical Race Theory.”
Why spend tens of thousands of dollars on reading and discussing Shakespeare when you can instead mold yourself into a weapon for cultural Marxism, am I right?
Gun-Toting Antifa Prof Charged With Assault
University of North Carolina professor Dwayne Dixon is charged with the assault of Patrick Howley, who’s editor-in-chief of Big League Politics, reported Campus Reform.
The altercation allegedly occurred August 20th which was when left-wing thugs tore down the Confederate statue on campus:
Dwayne Dixon teaches Asian studies and anthropology at UNC Chapel Hill and is also a leader of an Antifa group called Redneck Revolt. The professor told students that he scared off white nationalist James Fields, the guy who killed Heather Heyer with a car during the Unite the Right rally last year.
Dwayne is scheduled to appear in court on September 27th. But don’t get too excited. Remember that bike lock professor Eric Clanton got three felony assault charges dropped against him. But tearing down the statue and apparent assault wasn’t the only mischief leftists were getting up to at UNC. Remember this?
To be fair, UNC tells me that it has charged Dixon and 17 other individuals for things like resisting arrest, vandalism, misdemeanor riot, and mask-wearing during the three protests in late August.
But of course, charges aren’t convictions. Durham, also in North Carolina, dropped charges against 12 defendants involved with the ripping down of that city’s Confederate statue LAST year. Hopefully Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court will shake things up.
Leftist Savages Tear Down Confederate Statue
Protesters at the University of North Carolina toppled a Confederate statue on Monday, reported The News & Observer.
The protesters, many of whom I’m guessing were students, since UNC’s school year started yesterday, apparently covered the monument with banners saying “for a world without white supremacy,” then snuck behind the banners to start putting a rope around the statue. It’s at this point that, if I were campus police, I’d wonder just what the heck is going on. I mean, you don’t install $390,000 in surveillance cameras and security and then just let that happen. And it wasn’t like this was out of the blue. Oh no, there were clashes between protesters and police earlier in the day:
And get this: police apparently only arrested one person for concealing their face and resisting arrest. No one was arrested for property damage and no one was arrested for blocking traffic.
Of course, none of this is surprising when you remember what happened to protesters in Durham, North Carolina who tore down a Confederate statue last August. That’s right — nothing.
That last woman was UNC graduate student Maya Little, who, yes, had previously poured ink and her own blood on the statue. But have any of these bright-eyed, bushy-tailed thought leaders given a thought as to where exactly this purging of history ends? Is it Robert E. Lee and the Confederacy? Is it Abraham Lincoln? How about Thomas Jefferson? Give these savages an inch and they will take a mile.
