Violent #Leftists target statue for destruction

A statue depicting a Confederate soldier known as “Silent Sam” at the University of North Carolina on Tuesday became the latest of many Civil War-era landmarks to face calls for removal in what’s become a national debate over racism in American history.

Violent Leftists have targeted the statue for destruction.

Calls to remove the statue — which commemorates the 321 UNC alumni who fought in the Confederate army during the Civil War on the school’s campus in Chapel Hill — come days after the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was removed from Duke University, UNC’s arch-rival school 10 miles away in Durham.
