California State University-Fresno Students Petition for Removal of Campus Gandhi Statue

California State University-Fresno Students Petition for Removal of Campus Gandhi Statue

“Gandhi was deeply prejudiced against all minorities, from black Africans, Jews, to low-caste Hindus”

Perhaps American colleges and universities should just remove all statues from campus. It seems as though no one is acceptable enough to have a monument.

The Washington Times reports:

Gandhi statue under fire at Fresno State

Officials at California State University-Fresno are facing increasing pressure to remove a statue on campus depicting the late Indian freedom leader Mahatma Gandhi.

“How will the historian teach and explain that Gandhi was uncharitable in his attitude towards the Black race and see that we are glorifying him by erecting a statue on our campus?” asks a Change.org petition, which is nearing 5,000 signatures.

“Gandhi was deeply prejudiced against all minorities, from black Africans, Jews, to low-caste Hindus,” it states. “He also demonstrated a shocking lack of morality, from sleeping naked with young girls to employing nonviolence merely as a tool of political expediency.”

The petition, launched last week by Akhnoor Sidhu, demands that the statue, which stands among figures of Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez and Jane Addams in the Fresno State Peace Garden, be removed “in solidarity of the Black Lives Matter movement.”…

Fresno State President Joseph Castro responded in a statement last week defending the statue, explaining that its presence did not necessarily honor every aspect of Gandhi’s life.

Okay, we need a list. All of these radical college students demands are pure documentation of their total corruption, but more importantly of how they are completely uneducated, after 12 years plus in public education. It’s time for civil action lawsuits against all educational institutions run by the government, as well as cutting off funding.

He was also pro-gun, so a monument to him has absolutely NO place on a college campus.

    But the hard-core leftists really love guns, as long as they have them and you don’t. In Seattle’s anarchist CHOP zone (that the clueless mayor called “the summer of love”) there was at least one major shootout every night.

    The final tally was two dead and four in the hospital before the mayor let the cops move back in. The two dead were Black teenagers, one 16 and one 19. Where are the protests over these deaths? Don’t these Black Lives Matter?

The universities have failed. They are producing animals. Its time to close them down. Then confiscate there endowment funds as ill-gotton gains. Then bulldoze them into a pile. Then set the pile on fire. Then salt the earth upon which they once grew.

Every one of the bad things they claim Gandhi did were done to the nth degree by Mohammed – plus a lot of brutal slavery, torture, killings and conquests.

How about students demanding that no teachings of Mohammed and any mention of him or his Muslim religion be allowed on campus? And that any method of honoring him be banned.

I am certain there would be more than a few violent protests attacking such a ban.

‘It seems as though no one is acceptable enough to have a monument.”

Well, maybe Raz.

Or, I know — George Floyd, complete with those funerary wings and halo.
