CHAPEL HILL – The reactions from the Radical Left keep getting more extreme when it comes to Confederate statue ‘Silent Sam.’ Now, beyond the mere calls for removing any reminder of our nation’s past, the social justice warriors are going as far as calling for the abolition the “Board, the Chancellor, the President & the Police.”
We will not rest until UNC is no longer controlled by a small group of authoritarian white supremacists w the power to criminalize & enact violence against us w impunity, and who actively work to harm Black people. Abolish the Board, the Chancellor, the President & the Police.

Are these the people we’re supposed to have reasonable conversations with about removing potentially offensive statues? We wish this sentiment was merely a case of crackpots with a Twitter account, but it turns out that many teachers, faculty, and students from UNC liked and retweeted this garbage.
“Various UNC students, teaching assistants, and faculty liked and retweeted the statement against police.Notice: The WPP_Query class has been deprecated since 5.0.0. Please use \WordPressPopularPosts\Query instead. in /www/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/src/deprecated.php on line 43
Take Action Chapel Hill formed in August “as a support system for anti-racist activists facing charges related to protests against white supremacy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,” according to the group’s website.
It also set up an “Anti-Racist Activist Fund,” which gives legal help and funds to “current and future defendants in the struggle against white supremacy in Chapel Hill and surrounding areas,” spending any leftover money on “anti-racist activism.”
In addition, Take Action Chapel Hill organizes “against Silent Sam” and “against all forms of oppression in our community and around the world.”
The group has also made negative comments about police.
“[T]he police and the state are the most violent white nationalists of all!” stated an early December tweet.”
Actually, ‘Take Action’ appears to be made up of UNC students, at least in part, juding by previous tweets.
UNC Chapel Hill continues advancing the false narrative that Silent Sam protesters are outside agitators. Actual UNC students (us included) have repeatedly and publicly denounced this lie. The real outside agitators are the police who have been invited to our campus to harm us. https://t.co/k09l30NYMG

The “anti-racist” group actually exhibits all the signs of being racist themselves, automatically assuming that any organization with input from white people is illegitimate, if not an outright conspiracy to oppress minorities.
It’d be more accurate to label the group ‘anti-police.’ Luckily, the Board has approved motions that shall prove very important to actually enforcing some sense of law and order during these well orchestrated mob actions.

More than just existing in Chapel Hill, this dangerous line of thinking is promoted by faculty of UNC. Dwayne Dixon, a self-labled ‘anti-fascist’ and founder of the Redneck Revolt fond of carrying around rifles during protests and assaulting reporters who question him, is actually still employed by the university.
UNC needs a purge of any staff that are willing to hold students hostage to their social justice agenda, and especially of those staff that encourage mob violence to promote their asinine views of the world.
