Students: Remove Statues Because They Promote ‘White Supremacy’ – Reclaiming America

Students: Remove Statues Because They Promote ‘White Supremacy’

Marcus Aurelius

What does it say about the state of America, traditional American values, and the American university system when university students are demanding that statues of Roman Emperors Caesar Augustus and Marcus Aurelius (statue in the above photo) be torn down because, according to the students, the statues represent white supremacy and colonialism?

Do these students even realize that Marcus Aurelius is one of the greatest philosophers the world has ever known and his words are studied and admired by people of all cultures?

Are we living in an age when all vestiges of the past that offend one special interest group or another must be eliminated?

**********

A Brown University student group, Decolonization at Brown, wants the school to remove two Roman statues displayed on campus, claiming the statues represent white supremacy and colonialism,” according to The College Fix.

The student group at the Ivy League university in Rhode Island has lobbied the school’s Undergraduate Council of Students to support its initiative to remove of statues of Roman Emperors Caesar Augustus and Marcus Aurelius.

“Removing the statues “is one step in a broader project of decolonization by confronting Brown’s institutional and ideological legacies of colonialism and white supremacy,” members of the group wrote in The Blognonian, a student publication at the university…

“Junaid Malik, a leader in the effort, said, according to the student paper: ‘For those of us who come from countries that were also colonized, these statues carry the symbolism of conquest, one that we think is incompatible with the continued occupation of Indigenous land in the U.S.'”

    Children do not get to tell America what to do! Especially children brainwashed by deep state Maxists professors, who are really ‘operators’, who’ve indoctrinated our children into becoming the UN’s HERD!
    Our President has signed an executive order that enacts a 10 YEAR minimum sentence to destroyers of our National Historic Statues!
    Throw a few of these “snowflake” Marxists in jail for 10 years and the rest of the self entitled morons will stop trying to tear down our country!
    And while we are at it! Arrest these “Marxist Operators” from our schools colleges and universities! Arrest them for SEDITION and the poisoning of Young American Minds! TRUMP2020!

    All of these students should be removed from the United States. Let 5hem go to a school in country. They will soon learn how other countries view their stupid claim. That is the only way these stupid brats will learn how great our country is.

    Do these students at Brown offer alternative people who have proved their knowledge and philosophical thinking equal to or greater than these two people of the past who happen to have been born white ? Seems to me this is an enclave at Brown that is simply an anti-white group against people of well deserved reputation that has been documented over time. Or is it jealousy or embarrassment that a person or persons of color did not rise to this level of notarity for their thinking or knowledge during this period in time?

    I hope Brown U does not do as requested. They are only doing it to get attention as they surely haven’t grown up enough to demand anything.

  7. Instead of protesting why don’t you invent a time machine and go back into history until you were conceived thus eliminating your life so you won’t be offended by anything like white supremacy.

      Don’t rail on the kids. Granted they are stupid and probably beyond repair but who are the negligent parents who allowed these liberal overpaid professors to teach them and mold them into such useless human beings without a future. Parents have a responsibility to know who is teaching their kids and what their values are.

      • Julia Ogden says:

        Absolutely Right! These ‘snowflake’ kids our partly OUR FAULT as parents who did NOT keep an eye on the Department of Education and what they were up to behind our backs!
        Too lazy and apathetic to STAY VIGILANT against any kind of ‘internal infiltration’ of our government, we LET this “critical race theory” training take over our schools, our colleges and our universities! Over 20 researchers and professors have been arrested for SEDITION!
        We FORGOT our lessons, laid down by our FOREFATHERS to be VIGILANT against those EVIL haters who have been trying to destroy American and our Constitutional Rights FROM THE INSIDE!
        The proof of this attempted takeover is in the declassified documents and videos being RELEASED ONLINE BY CHINA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS TO WAKE UP AMERICA!
        America has been PUT TO SLEEP FOR DECADES BY THE CIA’S “OPERATION MOCKINGBIRD” TO LULL US INTO OBEYING THEIR WHIMS! WAKE UP AND VOTE TRUMP2020! Or become the HERD to be HARVESTED by the UN’s New World Order!
