Former Gov. Pat McCrory compares Silent Sam vandals to Nazi book-burners

Via Susan


Former Gov. Pat McCrory Tuesday blasted what he called “mob rule” at UNC-Chapel Hill Monday night and compared the students who tore down a Confederate memorial with Nazis.

“Are they any different than Nazis of the 1930s, 1920s in Germany tearing down statues, burning books?” McCrory asked.

McCrory made the comments on his regular morning show on WBT radio.

The statue of “Silent Sam” was a Confederate memorial that had stood on campus for 105 years. It had been particularly controversial in recent months. Monday’s crowd initially gathered in support of a UNC graduate student who faces criminal charges for throwing red ink and blood on the statue in April. Protesters finally pulled the statue down.


  1. They'll be moving on to books soon. And then people.
