CHAPEL HILL – And Chapel Hill Police are planning for violence. Word went out about an expected protest planned for Thursday evening to celebrate the toppling of the confederate war dead memorial and further  protest  its possible re-installment. A group from Alamance County that wants the statue returned to the stand is also planning an event, making for a potentially explosive situation considering the prevalence of Antifa thugs in recent Silent Sam protests.


After law enforcement issued a stand down order, enabling the toppling of the statue activists were emboldened. Police and University system officials were embarrassed. Holding the line on actually enforcing the law has now been made that much more difficult due to the earlier appeasement of the mob.

With Antifa forces animating much of the protests combined with counter-protesters in their midst the police are right to be prepared for violence. The Radical Left has proven in many instances they cannot even tolerate the presence of opposing views without resorting to violence.

However, even if the authorities make it through Thursday evening without incident the risk is far from gone. The university has until November 15 to make a decision on Silent Sam, so the possibility of the statue’s return will still fuel its opposition for weeks.

Weeks of Democrat politicians and media spin racial divide narratives labeling Republicans as bigots in the lead up to the fall elections. All according to planned, we’re sure.
