UNC Protesters Destroy 105-Year-Old Confederate Statue

Unhinged, anti-American students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have acted to destroy the 105-year-old Confederate statue named “Silent Sam” on Monday night.

The students gathered Monday evening to protest for the school to remove the statue, but after a few hours of whipping up their hatred, they acted to illegally tear down the statue in another act of mob violence.

On the evening of August 20, a group of students gathered to demand that university officials remove the statue that has stood since 1913 on McCorkle Place in the university’s upper quad. But after several hours of chanting and speaking about the destruction of the statue, the protesters took the situation into their own hands and tore the monument down, ABC 11 reported.

Many of the protesters were rallying in solidarity with former UNC graduate student Maya Little who was facing expulsion as well as criminal charges for covering the statue with red paint back in May.

Police moved in and began attempting to disperse the crowd but acted far too late to stop the destruction of the monument.

The school issued a pretty meaningless response to the vandalism last night:

These students once again proved that it is the left that is the danger to our public safety.
