A William & Mary student posted two pictures of a Thomas Jefferson statue stained with fake blood and a message reading: Overseen: TJ caught with the blood of all the people he owned on his hands.

SJWs are such douchebags.
They should be actively discriminated against.
I thought TJ was a Univ of Va alum?
Technically he didn’t “own” slaves.
He owed large debts to those who did.
TJ founded UVa.
And with all the security cameras on campus, not a one caught the punk(s) doing this?
He was a W&M alum, but thought he could do better and founded UVA.
These little young “snowflakes” better get their little minds out of the past and look at what the future holds for them if they continue on the path they’ve chosen...
It ain’t gonna be pretty.....
I wonder how these snowflakes can stand living in Williamsburg with Colonial Williamsburg right next to the W&M campus. The reenactors portraying Washington and Jefferson must be really triggering for these snowflakes.
I do the equivalent of founding a UV(a) at least once a day, likely in distress if I’ve been to Taco Bell.
Low-life SCUM defacing other’s property. It is always good to I.D. them at this level and build the case as many go on to greater events if left unchecked.
The communists are intent on erasing our history.
no, UVA didn’t exist when TJ was young, he founded it in his later years
Over the course of Jefferson’s life, he owned 700 slaves.
Some were inherited his fathers estate, 135 were inherited from his wife’s father’s estate. The balance he acquired. During his life time Jefferson freed 5 slave, and 5 more were freed by his will.
Thomas Jefferson has been dead for almost 200 years, I don’t think he cares or would care what some SJW thinks.
If a person lives in a house with 700 rooms, that has a mortgage... do they "own" their home?
Jefferson knew the relation of that reality.
"COMMERCE BETWEEN MASTER AND SLAVE IS DESPOTISM"
He owned them. He was legally able to free them, of which he freed 10. He could sell the slaves children or their husbands or their wives. He could decide if they would be punished or not punished for attempting escape. He could decide when a slave was to be put on their own time. You may not consider that ownership, but that kind of power normally does not come by renting.
Jefferson lived in the reality of his time.
And he died in heavy debt.
The reality of his situation just doesn’t support the narrative of the slaving owning rich entitled white guy the SJW’s are trying to paint.
Everyone lives in the reality of their own time. But the reason we so greatly honor Jefferson, was he understood truths that are timeless. Jefferson was truly a man for the ages! His detractors are either intentionally seeking to war on reality, or unable to accept reality for whatever reason.
Here for example is how Jefferson succinctly explained a welfare system (safety net), which unlike everything in America since FDR, actually worked for social benefit:
