Student Who Threw Sickening Liquid on Confederate Statue, Gets What’s Coming to Her

Published

Maya Little, a student activist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has found herself in hot water after tossing a mixture of blood and red paint on the statue of a Confederate soldier.

An activist group known as “Move Silent Sam” — an organization with the sole mission of seeing the statue in question removed — stated that Little had been arrested for vandalism for her “act of protest.”

“Maya Little was arrested for defacing @UNC’s racist Confederate monument,” the group tweeted on Monday. “We support her, and encourage others to do the same.”

“[University President] Margaret Spellings, Chairperson Bissette, and the entire @UNC_System administration have failed to stand up for people of color at UNC. Shame!” the organization added.

After Little splattered the statue with her homemade mixture, a small group of students gathered around it and linked arms in an attempt to prevent school officials from cleaning up the mess.

The students chanted, “Hey hey, ho ho, this racist statue has got to go,” while carrying out their demonstration.

Little herself delivered a statement about the incident:

“Today I have thrown my blood and red ink on this statue as a part of the continued mission to provide the context that the Chancellor [Carol Folt] refuses to,” she continued. “Chancellor Folt, if you refuse to remove the statue, then we will continue to contextualize it. Silent Sam is violence; Silent Sam is the genocide of black people; Silent Sam is antithetical to our right to exist. You should see him the way that we do, at the forefront of our campus covered in our blood.”

What people like Little don’t seem to understand is that you can’t erase history by removing statues. Whatever happened, happened and now there’s nothing that can be done to change that.

Instead of seeking to revise history, we should be seeking to move beyond the shortcomings of the past.

These statues are reminders of where we came from and where we need to be going.

On top of that, vandalizing property only serves to make you a criminal. It doesn’t win hearts and minds to your cause.

Instead of crime, perhaps Little’s time would’ve been better served educating people about why she finds the statue offensive?

Just food for thought.

NY Times Forced To Make Massive Correction On Kavanaugh Story Over Factual Omission

Shame, shame.

Published

on

Folks on the left tend to view the New York Times as a bastion of journalistic integrity, but the fact is, this couldn’t be further from the truth, especially over the last several years that Trump has been in office. The NY Times is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party, helping to pump up the progressive agenda and force feed it into the mushy brains of a readership who refuse to think for themselves and do due diligence to see both sides of the important issues facing our country. The latest example of this is the major correction the publication was forced to make to a story about the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations. The reason for the correction is that the story withheld exculpatory information. via TheBlaze: The supposed bombshell story reported new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. According to the story, Kavanaugh once pulled down his pants at a Yale party and “friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.” However, the story omitted a key fact relevant to the story’s credibility: The alleged victim does not remember the incident. “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” the Times said in a correction. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.” https://twitter.com/MZHemingway/status/1173432452435644416 The correction was only made after Mollie Hemingway, writer for The Federalist, highlighted the omission of this key fact, having obtained an early copy of the…

Teacher Under Investigation After Telling Students VP Pence Should Be ‘Shot In The Head’

So much for tolerance.

Published

on

One of the things we constantly hear from the radical left is about how we all need to be tolerant of folks who are different from us, which sounds like a lovely little platitude. However, it’s not one the left actually takes and applies to real life, especially for folks who are on the right side of the political spectrum. A good case in point is the tale of a North Carolina high school teacher who is now under investigation after telling students that Vice President Mike Pence “should be shot in the head.” Doesn’t that just give you the warm and fuzzies and make you yearn for unity and harmony? via TheBlaze: The teacher — who works at Cuthbertson High School in Waxhaw — allegedly made the comment the same week Pence was in the area to campaign for Republican Dan Bishop, WJZY-TV reported. Bishop, a state senator, won a special election Tuesday for North Carolina’s congressional seat. The Union County Sheriff’s Office told WJZY it passed the information along to the Secret Service to investigate. The station referred to the teacher in question as a female but said it wasn’t naming the teacher. Parents are rightfully furious over this teacher’s statements to the students, even those who aren’t fans of Pence like Firas Obeid, who is the father of two students attending the school. “Affiliation to a specific party does not entitle us to make statement like that to anyone,” Obeid said. So what did the school district say about the incident? They released the following statement: “Union County Public Schools is aware of the allegation of inappropriate comments made by a Cuthbertson High School teacher. District administrators are taking this allegation seriously and an investigation is being conducted. This is a personnel matter and information related to…
