On the night of 20 August, radical leftist students, including elements of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, tore down the statue of Silent Sam on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. The statue was erected in honor of the Confederate soldiers from UNC a century ago by the United Daughters of the Confederacy as a memorial to their brave service and sacrifice for their country. Video shows law enforcement standing around watching as these terrorists demolished public property with impunity.
We expect there will be no prosecutions, as the young leftists will be viewed by the university administration with a high degree of sympathy. We condemn in the harshest manner possible those who tore down Silent Sam, those who abetted them, and those officials who stood by on the scene and did nothing to prevent it. You are all thugs and cowards.
