Liberal protestors, not content to wait for the congested wheels of ordinary government to turn, took it into their own hands and violently toppled the iconic, Confederate 'Silent Sam' statue on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill on Monday night. Millennials are unwilling to wait for a new, better world. They are creating it now. Get in their way at your own peril.

CHAPEL HILL - Protesters toppled the Silent Sam Confederate statue on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill on Monday night.

The monument came down after 9:15 p.m. Monday. Earlier in the evening, protesters covered the statue with gray banners, erecting "an alternative monument" that said, in part, "For a world without white supremacy."

 

 A skirmish broke out when someone threw a smoke bomb into the crowd. Police chased one protester and arrested another for resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer. The unidentified man who was arrested may also face another charge of wearing a mask to a rally, a UNC police spokesman said.

The crowd quickly took control of the area immediately around the statue, hoisting four tall banners in a square that almost completely covered it. The head of the Confederate soldier occasionally poked out from the top of the banners.

 

Police formed a perimeter around protesters. One banner said, "The whole world is watching. Which side are you on?" Some of the demonstrators wore Carolina blue bandannas over their faces that said, "Sam must fall."

Several bystanders wearing Confederate flags on T-shirts peacefully watched the protest.

The event, which began outside the downtown post office in Chapel Hill, unfolded as students begin a new semester at UNC, almost a year after a massive protest against Silent Sam in the aftermath of violence in Charlottesville. Protesters have vowed to sustain the pressure on the university to relocate the Confederate monument, but campus and UNC system officials insist state law prevents them from doing so.

 

The rally started with the singing of the black national anthem, "Lift Every Voice and Sing."

 "It's time to build monuments to honor those who have been murdered by white supremacy," Little said, adding, "It's time to tear down Silent Sam. It's time to tear down UNC's institutional white supremacy."

"When you have to take the long way between classes in order to avoid the sight of a statue that denies your human dignity, the Southern Part of Heaven can feel an awful lot like hell," said Wilson, who studies education. 

He said the university had bowed to the wishes of donors and well-heeled leaders who want to see the statue stay at UNC.

Wilson placed a rope, fashioned as a noose, around his neck and vowed to wear it until Silent Sam is removed. He said the rope would symbolize what he said is a hostile environment created by the statue.

And this, ladies and gents, tells the ENTIRE STORY in a nutshell.

 

The simple FACT IS, every damn one of these "protestors" should be sent to jail, tried and convicted of DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY and sent to prison for the MAXIMUM SENTENCE ALLOWED BY LAW!!

 

Either you SUPPORT the RULE OF LAW or the RULE OF MEN.

 

Apparently, you shi'tstains support the latter.

They are really changing the world alright...I did notice the sun was shining just a little bit better.

 

I'd like to go one of their houses with a golf club...even tho Old Sam doesn't mean anything to me; I'd just like to give those students a lesson in respecting property which is not thiers.

Its kinda like having Hitler statues all over the place.

 

 

Hitler and the  Democrats  have  a lot in common.

 

The both used slave labor and they both  put people into  prison camps in WW2.  The both committed craven acts of human rights violations

The Japanese Internment camps were created by Congress, and were supported by Democrats and Republicans alike. Years later, it was a DEMOCRATIC administration that issued apologies and paid reparations.

 

It was LBJ, a DEMOCRAT that pressured his party to support Civil Rights legislation. It was REPUBLICAN candidate Barry Goldwater that OPPOSED it, based on "states rights".

Remember how the crowd was sued for watching some woman get gang raped in a bar, Jodie Foster played the victim in a movie abut it?  Where are the public defenders of the law here. 

 

bring these social destroyers of other people's property to staying within the law? Those actually tearing it down jail time, those watching and recording it, pay for damages and restoration not those that paid the taxes to maintain it as long as it was there.

 

that is how justice should work for all.

 

this event was no different than the protesters at Kent State burning down the ROTC building. ssdd, two generations later. Must be the grandchildren of those staging Kent Sta

YOU ain't REAL SMART are you shi'tstain.

 

ROOSEVELT ISSUED AN EXECUTIVE ORDER that interred the Japanese Americans, NOT CONGRESS. 9066 if memory serves me correctly.
