Confederate Statue Vandalized at Duke University

Confederate Statue Vandalized at Duke University

Everybody’s doing it…

This trend to vandalize and remove statues the left finds offensive actually began on college campuses, so this is hardly surprising.

Confederate Statue At Duke University Latest To Be Vandalized

Duke University discovered vandalism was done to a Robert E. Lee statue Thursday, including what appear to be holes in the statue’s nose and forehead.

Duke officials have launched an investigation into defacement on the statue near the school’s Duke Chapel, reported Duke Today.

“Duke University is a place of sanctuary and refuge that belongs to every member of the Duke community,” said Vincent E. Price, the school’s president. “Each of us deserves a voice in determining how to address the questions raised by the statues of Robert E. Lee and others, and confront the darker moments in our nation’s history.”

“For an individual or group of individuals to take matters into their own hands and vandalize a house of worship undermines the right, protected in our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, of every Duke student and employee to participate fully in university life.”

…and yes, Confederate soldiers, sailors, and Marines that fought in the Civil war were made U.S. Veterans by an act of Congress in in 1957, U.S. Public Law 85-425, Sec 410, Approved 23 May, 1958. This made all Confederate Army/ Navy/ Marine Veterans equal to U.S. Veterans.

It doesn’t seem like anybody cares about the law any more, though.
