Virginia Copeland of Campus Reform reported on several acts of vandalism that swept across Washington, D.C. in the last few weeks.
One of the most notable was the desecration of a bust of George Washington, America’s first president. According to the GW Hatchet, six incidents related to protests took place on campus from late May to early June. Conservative activist Kara Zuckus went on Twitter to highlight how Washington’s bust on the campus of George Washington University in downtown Washington, D.C. disappeared.
This incident went unnoticed, especially by GW officials, for several weeks.
“A stunning image– looks like GW may have removed George Washington’s head to protect it from riots in DC. Truly disconcerting times,” Zupkus tweeted on June 2. At the time of this tweet, it was not clear whether the university had taken down the bust out of fear that it might get damaged by agitators or if it had already received damage during the riots.

Later on, Zuckus tweeted, saying that the bust was “apparently” toppled.

The campus newspaper published a campus crime log, which detailed the vandalization of the Washington bust.
“A GWPD officer found the head of a George Washington statue removed from a stand near the Greek Townhouses at the corner of 23rd and F streets. The head was found laying at the base of the stand. GWPD called Facilities Services following the discovery,” the log recounted.
Zupkus then tweeted on June 23, “Today, @JonathanTurley confirmed my fears: the GW statue was toppled by rioters, and @GWtweets, in an attempt to sweep the incident under the rug, has failed to release a statement THREE weeks later. https://jonathanturley.org/2020/06/23/pro”
So far, GWPD has found no suspects or witnesses during investigations to determine who was behind the desecration of the George Washington bust.
Universities, which are virtual appendages of the Left, have been largely complicit in the radicalization of these movements.
If they had a scintilla of decency, they would be standing up to these vandals and cracking down on acts of vandalization
University Student Who Dared Question the LGBT Agenda is Now Facing the Threat of Losing his Scholarship
Defy the LGBT agenda at your own peril.
A Villanova University student claims that her academic advisor is attempting to intimidate her for tweets that criticized the university’s promotion of Pride Month.
Melanie Didioti, a graduate student at Villanova University, criticized the school’s athletic department for its Pride Month tweet on June 22, 2020. The tweet stated, “Love is Love. Happy #PrideMonth – We are proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ Community.”
Didioti responded with a tweet: “Villanova is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and ashamed to be Catholic so I’m ashamed to attend here and that’s that.”
She claimed that this tweet resulted in her having a tense meeting with her academic advisor in the theology department, Professor Jennifer Jackson, on June 26.
Initially, Jackson claimed that the meeting was only about the fall 2020 schedule, per emails that The College Fix was able to require.
Instead, Didioti asserted that Jackson took advantage of the meeting to blast her tweets.
Didioti concluded that this interaction was the final “nail in the coffin,” and she now has plans to transfer to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, which is more conservative.
Universities in America have become leftist think tanks that do not promote free speech, nor allow people to hold provocative views.
Most conservatives are probably better off skipping class and learning trades.
