Thomas Jefferson, ‘emblem of white supremacy,’ targeted in UVa. students’ list of demands

University of Virginia students have issued a list of demands regarding a statue of Thomas Jefferson on campus because his visage allegedly serves as “an emblem of white supremacy.”

President Trump asked reporters on Aug. 15 if violence in Charlottesville over historical monuments would inspire campaigns against the nation’s third present. A coalition of minority student groups answered his call less than one week later with a list of demands for administrators.

The Minority Rights Coalition hosted a “March to Reclaim Our Grounds” on Aug. 21, at which point they revealed a ten-point ultimatum obtained by Campus Reform on Wednesday.

“The statue of Jefferson serves as an emblem of white supremacy, and should be re-contextualized with a plaque to include that history,” the students wrote.

    If these deans and people in charge dont stand up to these cry babies, its only going to get worse. This has to stop now and potus didnt say that as a march to arms, he was saying where does it stop? Like a previous post Robert Byrd was a racist and a big shot with the kkk. He voted against many civil rights bills in his very long career. What’s really sic is these people taking these things down are most likely hillary voters and Robert Byrd was her mentor. How many of them know bill and hillary both had racist mentors. Talk about irony.

    I say that if “you” (any person/group) want to get rid of any statue/monument, etc go ahead and PAY FOR IT YOURSELF. I for one do not want my “tax dollars” to pay for doing something stupid people want. I know that some of that “tax dollars” might have been paid by “you” so only that money, if any is left after taking care of the regular budge, needs to be set aside toward the total cost of removing any statue/monument you morons want removed.
    Those statues/monuments have been right in front of your face and it never bothered you until now, how stupid can you be. You are being brainwashed and you think you are winning – WHAT????

    I realize the President was being tongue in check with his remarks, but these morons took it as marching orders. Old adage: Give them an inch and they’ll take a yard. Let’s just go all the way, shall we? The FDR Monument should be torn down because of his treatment of the Japanese in the 1940’s. The MLK Memorial should be pulled down because of his support of Malcolm X, a leader in the anti-Sematic Nation of Islam. We need to remove all Andy Jackson monuments from around the country, especially in Louisiana, because he was a slave owner. West Virginia needs to spend BILLIONS to get the name of Robert Byrd, former KKK leader, from all the stuff his pork filled political life got for his home state. Want to go farther? Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren and Jane Fonda should be required to return their “Margaret Sanger Awards” since the revered founder of Planned Parenthood was also a devote racist. This can go on and on.

    Ignorance abounds at the University of Virginia and other so called institutions of higher learning. What a pathetic joke these people are.
