UVA Students Demand Stronger Response From School Over Noose Placed on Statue

UVA Students Demand Stronger Response From School Over Noose Placed on Statue

“there is a continued pattern and legacy of the University administration enabling white supremacy”

Incidents like this one often follow a pattern: leftists perpetrate an outrageous act and then make demands of the school based on what they did. I’m not saying that’s what happened here, but it fits the pattern.

The College Fix reports:

UVA protesters want ‘stronger’ campus response to noose hung on statue

Following reports of an as-yet unknown individual hanging a noose on a campus statue, protesters at the University of Virginia are demanding a “stronger response” from school officials.

According to The Cavalier Daily, what appeared to be “a male wearing a dark-colored jacket, jeans and dark-colored shoes” scaled the Homer statue on the campus Lawn and put a makeshift noose around its neck on September 7.

In a campus-wide message the following day, UVA President Jim Ryan wrote “There is simply no place in our community for this type of conduct, and we will undertake every measure to find out who did this and to hold them accountable.”

The diversity, equity, and inclusion chairs for the University Democrats put out a statement condemning the “dangerous events” that took place, and called on the campus community “to acknowledge the history of the university, and that the maltreatment of African Americans still exists on our grounds.”

The Young Democratic Socialists of America at U.Va. also released a statement claiming “there is a continued pattern and legacy of the University administration enabling white supremacy” on campus, and complained that “right-wing conservative student groups funded by moneyed interests with deep ties to the alt-right are gaining traction” at UVA.

The YDSA statement continued: “To our white peers who are not disturbed by this action or cannot bring themselves to care, ask yourselves: what have you done to prevent these acts of hate on campus?”

The YDSA followed up by organizing a protest this past Monday “to process the violent act ” and to call on UVA officials to do more. All in attendance wore pink bandanas “to ensure the peacefulness of the event,” The Cavalier Daily reported.

There’s that “D” word again.

The YDSA statement continued: “To our white peers who are not disturbed by this action or cannot bring themselves to care, ask yourselves: what have you done to prevent these acts of hate on campus?”

They have their answer in their statement. Most ppl don’t care,
cuz most of the time. It is a set up for shock, outrage value; which eventually gets found out to be a hoax.

The “call for a stronger response” is typical:

Don’t look too hard into the perpetrator (because that would expose a hoax)

Instead, we demand you use this as a club to punish all white people…yes that’s the moral thing to do here!

“we will undertake every measure to find out who did this and to hold them accountable.”

Give ’em what they asked for, good and hard.
Send the noose to a forensic lab to identify all the DNA.
Look for racial markers in the DNA.
Call up each and every student to provide a DNA sample.
Remember: If you’ve done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide.™
Make a list of those who refuse to show up, and make it public.
Every measure.
Those who refuse to participate, declare them guilty in absentia.
Remember: this is a university; due process protections do not apply.
Use Democrat rules to fix a Democrat problem. Only fair.

It’s bad enough when young “adults” act like spoiled brats, but when the supposed leadership & adults that should know betterplay right along, it’s sickening what they are doing to our youth. Lack of directed discipline & lack of self -discipline with a narcissistic/nihilist worldview place our beautiful USA in aquite precarious position for any future

“a male wearing a dark-colored jacket, jeans and dark-colored shoes”

We will find out (very quietly) that it was a dark colored male, if the usual hoax pattern is followed.

Maybe UVA could hold off “responding” until some facts are in this time.

I give up. Who’s the “hate crime” supposed to be against? Ancient Greeks? What about this makes it a hate crime? For that matter, what about it makes it a crime at all?

Strange, I only viewed a noose as something used in 60’s westerns.
