Black Student Attacked for Helping Defend Founding Father


Progressives aren’t going to be satisfied with the Confederate flag. Unless they are stopped, soon even the Founding Fathers will be erased. Woe be to any blacks who defend them instead of remembering whose side they have been told to be on:

A conservative student at the University of Missouri was the target of racially motivated attacks on Twitter Tuesday evening, merely for defending a statue of Thomas Jefferson.

“My political beliefs should not be determined by my race, as was suggested by the tweets received today,” Jasmine Wells, the subject of the tweet, told Campus Reform.

Members of the Mizzou College Republicans hosted a “Stand With Jefferson” rally Tuesday to show support for an on-campus statue of Thomas Jefferson. Campus Reform first covered the uproar on Oct. 13 after students defaced the Jefferson statue with post-it notes with phrases such as “Racist,” “Rapist,” and “Slave Owner.”

[Tuesday]’s event was organized as a direct response to those activities, and somewhat predictably, sparked outrage on Twitter.

Along with the tweet directed at Wells, Twitter users complained that “#StandWithJefferson is fighting for a slave owning rapist’s statue instead of fighting for the ACTUAL RIGHTS of ACTUAL PEOPLE on campus,” and declared, “#StandWithJefferson because white people would rather celebrate a predatory slave owner than admit that #BlackLivesMatter.”

Another person tweeted, “#StandWithJefferson because, ya know, who cares that our founding fathers [sic] are a symbol of racism, genocide, and colonization (among others).”

If liberals continue to win, that is how the Founders will be remembered, until they and the great nation they forged are forgotten altogether.

For now liberal professors still have work to do. The Stand With Jefferson event collected more signatures in defense of the author of the Declaration of Independence than did moonbats’ petition calling for his statue to be banished.
