These students look so virtuous and serious....you can smell the hate... :-(

True. That said, this particular statue is on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus... I assume the college has the right to take it down.

Teaching the young mob rule works - - and that 'history' can be destroyed might be what the University wants to 'teach'.

A better choice might be for the University to put the issue to a student vote...after a month of public debates. Teach the kids to be responsible citizens rather than vandals...

The problem with a "debate" on this subject is that one group is passionate and convinced they are virtuous and most other folks really couldn't care less.

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

North Carolina law says that no monuments on state land can be removed. This gives the UNC officials perfect cover to say “We want it moved too...but our hands are tied”. Even our esteemed lefty governor can’t order Silent Sam removed..but they can cry and virtue signal about it all day long.
