Black Lives Matter protesters desecrate Thomas Jefferson statue on the campus he founded

Black Lives Matter organized a protest around a Thomas Jefferson statue at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville on Tuesday. This comes just one month after a "Unite the Right" rally turned violent and left one dead.

Here's what happened:

  • Students and activists wrapped  a statue of Thomas Jefferson, one of America's Founding Fathers and founder of the university, in a black tarp and desecrated it with "Black Lives Matter" and "F*** white supremacy" posters
  • Around 100 protesters showed up with signs labeling him a "racist" and a "rapist" while chanting "No Trump, No KKK, no racist U-V-A," reported the Richmond Times-Dispatch
  • UVA President, Teresa Sullivan, condemned Black Lives Matter and the attack on the statue in an email sent out to parents

Pat's take:

Pat Gray discussed the utter ignorance of these acts and the protesters' lack of knowledge about Thomas Jefferson and the history of his descendants. "The ignorance here is on a scale that's hard to even imagine. It's just hard to even imagine," said Pat.
