Washburn University Removed Bust of Mao Zedong From Display Case

Washburn University Removed Bust of Mao Zedong From Display Case

“Washburn University has not issued a statement on the matter and has not responded to Campus Reform’s requests for contact.”

It’s not clear why this bust was on display in the school’s political science department to begin with.

Campus Reform reports:

NEW: Mao bust removed from Washburn University following news report

Washburn University has removed a Mao Zedong bust displayed in the political science department following Campus Reform’s report on the object.

Campus Reform obtained a photograph of an empty display case showing that the Mao bust and other objects had been removed.

Grant Armstrong, a lecturer in the Kansas university’s political science department, told Campus Reform that the removal occurred soon after Campus Reform’s Mar. 7 report.

“Every statue out of that glass cabinet has since been removed,” Armstrong said. “It’s very odd that they wouldn’t just take out Mao, they insisted on taking out everything.”

Other figures previously displayed included Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Mitt Romney.

Washburn University has not issued a statement on the matter and has not responded to Campus Reform’s requests for contact.

Armstrong also spoke to Campus Reform about political bias on campus, referencing the recent controversy over Washburn President Jerry Farley’s comments about Michael Knowles’ Mar. 31 speaking event.

A Mitt Romney figurine? Seriously?

“It’s very odd that they wouldn’t just take out Mao, they insisted on taking out everything.” Other figures previously displayed included Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Mitt Romney.”

ROFL!
Any exterminator will tell you: you have to clear out ALL the nests.
