Sedition and Pockets

The Silent Sam extortion scam that UNC fell for and abetted was and is an absolute disgrace.  Tear it down and scrap it.  There is no value in preserving the legacy of racist intimidation in the public square.

QuoteThe UNC System and its Board of Governors asked an Orange County judge Monday to help them get the Silent Sam Confederate statue back and then advise them what to do with it.

Superior Court Judge Allen Baddour dismissed the lawsuit and voided the settlement between the UNC System and the North Carolina Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) that gave the SCV ownership of the statue and access to $2.5 million to preserve and display it.
 
Baddour, who had approved the deal in November, determined the SCV lacked the legal standing to sue in the first place, but didn't explain his reasoning. At a hearing earlier this month, he asked if the UNC System wanted direction about the fate of the monument in his written order dismissing the case.

Now where will the statue end up? Back on Campus? Be careful what you ask for!  <-;:

Civil War Battle Rages On!

QuoteThat settlement was voided earlier this month, with the presiding judge determining that the Confederate group never actually had any ownership claims to the statue and thus could not legally sue for it. Control of the statue then apparently returned to the university. But last week, Guskiewicz assured faculty that he would work to prevent the memorial to campus, The Daily Tar Heel reports:

Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz said he will do whatever possible to ensure that Silent Sam does not return to UNC's campus at a Faculty Council meeting on Friday.

"It doesn't belong on our campus," he said. "And I will continue to work with our Board of Trustees, our system office and Board of Governors on this."


The Raleigh News and Observer reported yesterday that the school, through its attorney, has asked the presiding judge to issue a clarifying order stipulating that the statue, as well as the full amount of the trust, be returned to university control, and that the school be given "ultimate disposition" over the statue.

The Confederate group, meanwhile, is working on "getting the statue back to the university," the group's lawyer said.
