WATCH: Granddaughter of Former UNC Chancellor Admits to Tearing Down Confederate Statue, ‘Silent Sam’

Published

on

The granddaughter of a former chancellor at the University of North Carolina was caught on camera bragging about her participation in the destruction of the “Silent Sam” statue on Monday night.

“So basically what happened was there was four banners on each side – well actually one banner on each side, and they were all connected by sticks,” said Margarita Sitterson, “and people wrapped rope around the sticks and we pulled back and forth and back and forth until it fell down.”

Sitterson is a student at UNC, according to her LinkedIn profile.

A Chapel Hill resident pointed out that there is a Sitterson building on campus. It turns out that Sitterson Hall is named after Margarita’s grandfather, J. Carlyle Sitterson, who served as chancellor of the university from 1966 to 1972.

When asked if her name was on one of the buildings, Sitterson readily admitted that her grandfather is a UNC alumnus, and that he spent his entire life working at the school.

“My grandfather – he went here for college, then he became a professor, then he became a dean [inaudible], then he became chancellor.”

Sitterson said she was ashamed and that she carried guilt because she is white, and white people owned slaves.

The Silent Sam statue was a monument honoring the ordinary Confederate soldier. Erected in 1913, it has been the topic of a great deal of controversy on campus since protestors occupied the statue a year ago.

The statue was torn down by several UNC students Monday night in an apparent effort to combat racism.

Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification

Dangerous harassment.

Published

on

A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.

One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.

He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!

The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.

“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”

Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.

The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.

Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
