Left-wing racial ideologues at Brown University in Rhode Island are demanding that the school destroy two classical statues of iconic Roman emperors, claiming that the works of art represent “white supremacy.”
Amanda Brynn, Justin Han, Sam Kimball, Junaid Malik, Olivia Mayeda, and Kelley Tackett, six undergraduate students affiliated with “Decolonization at Brown,” are demanding that the school destroy two classical-style statues of Roman emperors Augustus Caesar and Marcus Aurelius.
They claim in a blog post that the statues “were brought to our campus with the goals of upholding the ideal of the ‘perfect’ white form, white civilization, white supremacy and colonialism — ideas that we believe are incompatible with Brown today.”
“This is not just about monuments. It is also about the kinds of people and histories that students at Brown today are taught to idealize.”
They’re demanding that the classical statues, which appear to be replicas of famous Renaissance and ancient art, be replaced with pieces created by “artists of color.”
Marcus Aurelius was Roman emperor in the 2nd century in an era of peace and prosperity for the ancient civilization, and is known for documenting the philosophy of stoicism in literature that has been studied for millennia.
Ironically, classical-style statues have been targeted for destruction on cultural grounds before. The Vandals, a Germanic tribe that warred with the Roman Empire in its era of decline, associated their name with property damage and barbaric behavior through their frequent destruction of cultural statues.
The stringent ideologues detest the glories of western civilization, and would destroy the cultural inheritance of the American legacy before it is passed to future generations. Their own liberal fanaticism will fade from history as an uncreative and empty religion, whereas the legacies of great men will endure.
Lexington, Kentucky Mayor Proposes Defunding Emergency Rental Assistance to Fund Critical Race Indoctrination
What a waste.
The mayor of Lexington, Kentucky has aroused community backlash after supporting a proposal to fund implicit bias training for city employees using funds previously appropriated for coronavirus emergency rental assistance.
Lexington’s woke mayor is taking funds for poor people and using them to pay a rich white woman so she can teach city employees how to become woke… this is progressivism in the 21st century https://t.co/DuPk8tiyfQ

A left-wing housing group wants Mayor Linda Gorton to fund racialist implicit bias training by defunding the city’s police department, as opposed to stripping a rental assistance program instituted to help Lexington residents in the midst of the coronavirus recession.
Gorton’s critical race indoctrination program has an estimated investment of $120,000. Funding for the program is expressly removed from a remaining $240,000 allocated earlier in the year for rental assistance.
Here is where @MayorGorton (referred to as "the administration") makes this proposal. Note: the funds were "unallocated" bc of bureaucratic slowness, not bc they are unneeded. The current amount dedicated to rental assistance will leave 2/3 of current applicants unfunded. pic.twitter.com/MaCjXt2iCl

Gorton is yet to respond to criticism over her plan to defund housing assistance for left-wing ideological training.
Other national progressives have fought to implement left-wing critical race theory trainings even as the American public reels from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump signed two executive orders this year banning the use of divisive “trainings” by federal agencies or government contractors. Sources working with Joe Biden’s purported transition have indicated that the neoliberal Democrat will reverse the executive orders if he’s inaugurated, reinstalling critical race theory in government.
It’s hard to think of a more apt representation of luxury progressivism, defunding common-sense rental assistance for beleaguered people in order to enrich a woke ideologue for giving anti-white lectures.
