‘Silent Sam’ is down: Protesters topple Confederate statue on UNC campus.
https://www.wral.com/news/video/17783343/ - Please watch video.
Anarchists - commies screaming:
People power; student power; worker power; black power; queer power F*** you statue.
This will not go over well with most NC voters.
Not surprised. NC is a "purple" state now. And the "blue" heart of it is in the Triangle = Raleigh/ Durham/ Chapel Hill, especially the campuses of Duke and UNC-CH (and its lungs are in Charlotte and Asheville).
Pity that the powers that be at UNC-CH didn't create and relocate the statue to a historic park to preserve past history, however unsavory, like the Hungarians did in Budapest a few years after the Iron Curtain collapsed. See
Now the commie anarchists in Chapel Hill are imitating the Soviets and ChiComs by scrubbing/ revising history.
