The University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill proposed Monday spending millions of taxpayer dollars to build an education center to house the Confederate “Silent Sam” monument that was illegally toppled by students in August.
“UNC’s Board of Trustees proposed building a new area in Odum Village to place the Confederate monument, ” the report said. It will have at least one smart classroom and, potentially, shuttles to link it to campus.”
“[UNC Chancellor Carol] Folt said the construction would cost an estimated $5.3 million. She said the building will place Silent Sam into context and help teach a more full history of the university,” the report continued.
North Carolina laws that protect historical monuments dictate that Silent Sam must, in some capacity, be returned the UNC Campus. The school’s board of trustees put Monday’s meeting off for several months, but were forced to reckon with the no-win situation that their own radical communist students put them in when they lawlessly brought Silent Sam down.
“Highly pertinent aspects that we thoroughly considered included: public safety; preservation of the Artifacts; cost-effectiveness; potential disruption of University functions; input from the community; legal issues; linking the solution to other key mission-specific historical initiatives already underway; and more,” the Board’s report said. “We also did a preliminary examination of off-campus options. However, because they are not currently allowed by law, we are not able to offer them as part of a path that is lawful and lasting.”
The school already failed in its response to rioting communists by telling police to stand down while the monument was destroyed. Now, they want the North Carolina taxpayer to pay for poor decision making. It is a perfect case of how the government works for nobody.
SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson
Why is he still teaching?
A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.
