Leftists are under the impression that they can destroy anything they want in the name of social justice, even when it’s not. Seven people were arrested on charges stemming from the pulling down of a generic Confederate soldier that has been in place since 1913. The problem is that they are right. Liberal judges let them off with less than a slap on the wrist.
Look at the professor in California, who hit 7 people with a heavy bike lock, splitting one young man’s skull open. He got no jail time. 200 protesters arrested for rioting during the inauguration were all released, including the ones who pleaded guilty. Not one Berkeley rioter who attacked conservatives, also causing serious injury. No convictions.
A “violent mob” of about 300 protesters used ropes on Monday to pull down Silent Sam, a century-old statue at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that commemorates Confederate soldiers, according to a video statement on Thursday by UNC board member Thom Goolsby.
Over 100 people gathered near the statue on Saturday, some brandishing Confederate flags and promoting the historical significance of the statute, while others waved signs urging to “Destroy White Supremacy,” according to Reuters.
School officials are urging that the statue be resurrected within the 90 days as required by state law, but off campus to avoid violent protests at the university, UNC Chancellor Carol Folt said in a press conference Saturday.
NC state law requires that the stature be restored within 90 days, but the UNC Chancellor Carol Folt said it would have to be placed off campus because it will hurt da widdle snowflakes feelings. And once again the domestic terrorists win.
No matter how much they want to, you can’t erase our past… and you can always learn from it. And I know it will sound cliche but this is the wrong way to handle the situation.
