The statue has been a source of controversy and the subject of frequent protests, with students and activists proclaiming the memorial to the alumni killed in the civil war oppresses them on a daily basis.

From the Daily Tar Heel:

Around 2:45 p.m. a crowd formed around the Confederate monument on Polk Place. The crowd started chanting, “Hey hey, ho ho, this racist statue has got to go.”

These protesters were pushed away from the statue by UNC Police and Chapel Hill Police officers as UNC groundskeepers power-washed the paint from the statue.

A protester identifying themself as Dex Brekfast, a friend of Little, said that Little cut their hand and bloodied Silent Sam before pouring red paint over it.

I think the University needs to see how this statue and white supremacy has impacted their students, to the point where they have physically hurt themselves,” Brekfast said. “That should be the highlight of what happened here.”

The only thing impacting these students is their own utter idiocy. The highlight of what happened at the statue Monday is that these students that subscribe to the social justice warrior drivel are so incapable of handling even the slightest bit of offense that they will physically harm themselves in to signal their virtue.

The pervasive and damning trend of self-victimization by the political Left would be funny if it weren’t so concerning.
