Hofstra students in New York have gotten together to rid the campus of a statue of Thomas Jefferson because he was a racist slave owner - there's nothing wrong with an honest discussion about slavery.
But that's not what these students want.
What they are trying to do is use our forefathers' sins/crimes as leverage to change society now, no questions asked.
But - and this is a key point - it's only the West that these students target.
They don't target Turkey because of the Ottoman Empire.
They don't target Arab countries because of Arab Muslims spreading Islam by the sword, plus buying African slaves from west and east Africa.
They don't target Ethiopians because of the Abyssinian Empire.
They don't target the Japanese because of the Japanese Empire.
They don't target Chinese because of the Chinese Empire.
They don't target Russia because of the Russian Empire.
And they literally have nothing to say re African chieftains and kings selling other Africans into slavery.
Anyone remember some South African student who was at Oxford uni? He protested against the Rhodes statue and campaigned to have it removed ... turns out he was on a Rhodes scholarship. XD
F**k me ...
