President Donald Trump has been warning that many on the Left want to rewrite history. In what would seem to corroborate that claim, a group of “unlawful, dangerous” rioters toppled the “Silent Sam” Confederate Statue on the University of North Carolina campus on Monday night. The group of violent kids — apparently the product of liberal indoctrination that ignores or skews history– illegally brought down the statue because they claim it was “racist.”
According to News Observer, the university has responded by calling the act “dangerous and unlawful,” reminding students that while they were posing for the camera on Monday night, those who took down the statue broke the law. The school is looking into how much the damage will cost.
The “Silent Sam” statue, which has been standing on UNC’s campus since 1913, has served as a memorial for more than a century to those who lost their lives in the American Civil War. In fact, an act of congress made all fighters, both North and South, US veterans, so these ignorant students actually tore down a memorial to U.S. vets.
The students who took part in the riot are apparently oblivious to history and why the statue has been standing for more than 100 years. The only argument the liberals had was that it was a figure of “white supremacy.”
Around 9 p.m. ET on Monday, the protesters had covered the statue with banners and erected “an alternative monument,” which said, in part, “For a world without white supremacy.”
While protesters were wrapping banners across the front of the statue, while others were hidden behind the back of it working for hours to push it over.
When the statue fell to the ground, videos show the protesters stomping on the monument while cheering and clapping.
In fact, students have been vandalizing the statue so frequently the university was forced to spend $390,000 on security cameras around the statue late last year.
But more importantly, Monday’s protest is indicative of what Trump has been warning about for months.
Trump has said liberals want to remove all historical monuments they disagree with, something many views as the kind of government tyranny America’s Founding Fathers warned about many years ago and encouraged people to fight back against.
As Trump has said on numerous occasions when will enough be enough? It seems as if every time Republicans give an inch, Democrats try to take a foot.
The statue being toppled on Monday is indicative of how liberals will apparently stop at nothing until all of the historic monuments that offend them are taken down.
