Hey Kids, Garbage Like Wanting to Remove a Statue of Abe Lincoln, ‘Because He Was a Racist’, is Why Society Thinks You’re Preening Idiots

Don’t be like these students in Wisconsin.

We previously discussed the effort at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to have the famous statue of Abraham Lincoln removed as racist.  The student government has now voted unanimously in favor of a resolution that calls for the removal of the Abraham Lincoln statue on campus. The students declared that the president who signed the Emancipation Proclamation, advocated for the 13th Amendment, and led the war against the South and slavery was “not pro-Black” and a “remnant of White Supremacy.”  That would likely have come as something of a surprise to John Wilkes Booth.

One issue that was raised by student is that Lincoln ordered the execution of 38 Dakota men and signed the Homestead Act, which gave settlers land forcibly taken from Native Americans.

Read the rest.  And tell your students not to be idiots.  They’re only ruining higher ed’s reputation further.
