There was an extremely obnoxious series of events recently in Charlottesville. The progressive/socialist crowd melted down the Robert E. Lee statue that had been the object of protests and counter-protests several years ago.
The act of destroying that statue has been described as an effort at extinction; execution; public humiliation; and/or vengeance. It certainly was not a spirit of reconciliation.
The question is now being raised as to whether the usual cultural Marxists will be doing the same thing to the “Silent Sam” statue that was removed from UNC Chapel Hill. (HT: Fred)
Their insatiable appetite for destruction will not be quenched until they are effectively opposed.
