Gun-Toting Antifa Prof Charged With Assault

Published

on

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.

UNC Statue Vandal Tries To Dodge Community Service

Published

on

A University of North Carolina student court sanctioned graduate student Maya Little with a written warning and 18 hours of community service after the student smeared a mixture of what was apparently red paint and her own blood on a Confederate statue, according to Campus Reform. But for someone who’s apparently a compassionate social justice activist, Maya is oddly reluctant to do community service.

She appealed the decision and Gina Balamucki, the law student representing her, said that the vandalism “was an act of contextualization around a racist statue, which has since been taken down by the UNC chancellor herself. This was not a grave offense and this was well within the standards for the UNC community….Ms. Little does not need to learn from this experience. This experience was Maya teaching us something.”

So ideologically-driven property destruction is within the standards of UNC’s school community. Gotcha. And this act was Maya teaching us something. Wow, you’d think she’s talking about God sending the flood — I mean, what kind of moral authority does Maya Little have over us?

And let’s drop the notion that she’s some kind of innocent angel. Maya took part in another protest in December and got charged with starting a riot and assaulting a police officer.

But what makes the UNC statue story especially insane is that this wasn’t just a few dozen intolerant students. No, no, back last February, over a dozen unnamed UNC professors wrote the chancellor a letter threatening to tear down the monument themselves, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation. How brave — I guess that’s why they stayed anonymous. And then just last month, the chancellor removed the statue’s base before resigning, reported Campus Reform. When it comes to UNC, cultural Marxism is a team sport.

And keep in mind that UNC is a state institution and state law forbids the removal of these statues from public property without the approval of a state historical commission, according to The News & Observer.

Since when did the faction of inebriated hippies become the faction of lawless savages?

UNC Chancellor Resigns, But Finishes Off Confed. Statue First

Published

on

Protesters at the University of North Carolina ripped down the Confederate Silent Sam statue back in August. But the base and a commemorative plaque had still remained. Until Monday, that is. On Monday, UNC Chancellor Carol Folt simultaneously announced that she was removing the base and that she was resigning, according to Campus Reform.

This comes after faculty at the school had threatened to withhold grading last month and not teach the first week of the spring semester when UNC was considering putting the statue back up inside a new building on campus.

Folt had originally said that North Carolina law prevented her from taking the statue down. Regarding the statue’s base, she said, “While I recognize that some may not agree with my decision to remove the base and tablets now, I am confident this is the right one for our community – one that will promote public safety, enable us to begin the healing process and renew our focus on our great mission.”

“One that will promote public safety.” What, like safety from those domestic terrorists who vandalized and tore down the statue in the first place? Or from those anonymous professors who threatened to take the statue down themselves back in February? Get this, though: Folt announced that she was stepping down as chancellor at the end of the semester in May, but the Board of Governors, which apparently didn’t know about the statue or resignation until Folt made them public, are now making her resign at the end of January, reported CNN.

Faculty And TAs Go On GRADING STRIKE

Published

on

University of North Carolina faculty and TAs who are unhappy with the school’s decision to construct a $5 million building for a Confederate statue torn down by protesters — instead of, I guess, removing it from campus entirely — are going on a “grading strike” and withholding grades from their students in protest, reported Campus Reform. But it seems like UNC provost Bob Blouin, at least, is taking a stand.

He wrote an email to the school’s deans saying “Our students are entitled to receive their grades in a timely manner. It is especially critical for the students preparing to graduate next Sunday, as well as the thousands of students whose scholarships, grants, loans, visa status, school transfers, job opportunities, and military commissions may be imperiled because lack of grades threaten[s] their eligibility….The proposed strike exposes the University and individuals who withhold grades to legal claims for the harm they cause to students.”

Bob threatened “serious consequences” for instructors who do withhold grades. And that’s very good. You have to remember that these people aren’t the compassionate little angels they’d have you believe. No. These are single-minded ideologues who are prepared to sacrifice the scholarships, the job opportunities, and the general peace and sanity of their fellow students and faculty to get what they want, in this case, the removal of a symbol representing North Carolina’s history. Now the provost also mentioned that some UNC instructors are asking their students to take a position on the strike.

He said “such actions have been interpreted as coercion and an exploitation of the teacher-student relationship and in fact are a violation of students’ First Amendment rights as well as federal law.”

Yeah I don’t think I’d be too comfortable going on the record about the statue to someone who has control over my grade and, ergo, my future livelihood.
