BLM Covers Up Thomas Jefferson Statue

1.2k views

A group of about 100 University of Virginia students in Charlottesville covered a campus statue of Thomas Jefferson in black Tuesday night.

WJLA-TV reports:

Dozens of Black Lives Matter protesters defaced and covered the statue of one of the country's Founding Fathers, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and third President. He also founded the University of Virginia.

However, Jefferson is also known for being a slave owner.

The demonstrators posted a sign that read ‘TJ is a racist and rapist.’ They marched and chanted “no Trump, no KKK, no racist UVA.

 

 

The actions at the UVA rotunda seem to be proving President Donald Trump right in his comments regarding recent protests across the country demanding that statues of Confederate leaders be taken down.

“Is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You have to ask yourself where does it stop?” Trump said on August 15th.

It certainly hasn't stopped at UVA.

Some unknown individual or individuals removed the covering from the Jefferson statue before Wednesday morning classes resumed.
