Thomas Jefferson statue defaced at his own alma mater



The College of William & Mary, the second oldest institution of higher learning in the country, was the alma mater of some of the most important figures in American history. Yet none of its distinguished alumni is as admired or influential as Thomas Jefferson, the country’s third president and the author of the Declaration of Independence.

At least until now.

A statue of Jefferson at the school was defaced over the weekend.

The words “slave owner” were written nearby and Jefferson’s hands were painted red to signify blood. Because the statue is of bronze, the school will have to consult a metal conservator to remove the paint without damaging it.

Some students on campus told reporters they hope the incident will lead to a “conversation” about slavery on campus. Scott Greer, author of “No Campus For White Men,” believes it is just the first step in what will be the eventual purge of Jefferson from William & Mary’s legacy.

“It should come as no surprise that Thomas Jefferson, a Founding Father who articulated the principles of our country, would be reduced to an evil slave owner by the campus left,” he said.

“The great accomplishments of white men are washed away if they held the prevailing viewpoints of their time period. Jefferson’s status as a white male slave owner is far more important than him writing the Declaration of Independence or serving as the third president to the campus left. It’s only a matter of time until there is a serious effort to erase Jefferson from William & Mary.”

Political correctness is just the beginning. The situation on college campuses is worse than you could ever imagine – and America’s future is at stake. Don’t miss the political blockbuster of 2017 – “No Campus For White Men” by Scott Greer
