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.

Diplomats Speak On White House Transcript Of Ukraine Call, Say It Was ‘Substantively Correct’

Published

A pair of career diplomats who were highly involved in the crafting of U.S. policy in Ukraine have given testimony about President Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky which was transcribed and released by the White House, saying it was “substantively correct.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The transcript of the call, which is at the center of the Democrats’ impeachment investigation, shows no explicit quid pro quo between Trump and Zelensky but does show Trump pressuring Zelensky to investigate corruption allegations into 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden. Trump has said the call was “perfect” and decried the impeachment process as “the greatest political witch hunt in history.” During their public hearing on Tuesday, Jennifer Williams, a foreign service aide detailed to Vice President Mike Pence’s office, and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine specialist on the National Security Council, were both asked about the transcript by the House Intelligence Committee. “I didn’t take a word-for-word accounting. When I first saw the publicly released version, it looked substantively correct to me,” Williams said when asked whether the transcript was “complete and accurate.” “I certainly would describe it as substantively correct,” Vindman agreed, adding that it was “correct” and that he called it “very accurate” during his closed-door testimony. https://youtu.be/MEB-s2I205k Kurt Volker, who served as the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a former NSC aide, will also be giving testimony during the impeachment inquiry to be held on Tuesday. Despite saying the Trump transcript was “substantively correct,” Vindman spoke with House investigators during his private deposition and alleged the White House omitted some important words and phrases.
