Jaw-dropping hypocrisy…

The left’s cancel culture is overflowing with hypocrisy. Progressives are trying to rid America of historical figures faster than the Taliban in Afghanistan circa 2000.

No one is safe from the woke mob, and yet they refuse to point their supposed high-powered perception at themselves. While it’s not fair to expect more from historical illiterates, it’s our solemn obligation to shine a light on their movement’s hypocrisy.

Share this list far and wide to show Republicans, independents, and culturally conservative Democrats the insanity behind the leftist ideology. Never forget, this is Joe Biden’s Democrat Party!

Rice University

Despite its contemporary status as a hotbed for liberal thought, Rice University has a problematic history starting with its slave-owning founder William Marsh Rice.

On the eve of the Civil War, Rice’s entire property included 15,000 slaves.

Rice left the bulk of his estate to establish a university on the condition that it was only for whites.

Kelly’s tweets may have sounded a clarion call to eradicate Rice’s presence from his university.

Yale University

One of America’s most prestigious universities, Yale has a problematic history starting with the benefactor who gave it its name, Elihu Yale. An American born British merchant, Yale made his fortune from the slave trade.

During his employment with the East Indian Company, Yale had a reputation for treating indigenous people savagely, being the judge, jury, and executioner for locals living near the company’s post in Chennai, India. On one occasion, he hung a servant boy for allegedly riding off with a company horse.

Yale’s student body — which booed George W. Bush at the 2004 graduation of his daughter, Barbara — haven’t expressed much, if any, remorse over their university’s continued worship of Elihu Yale.

College of William & Mary

Another prestigious university has an inconvenient past. William III of England founded the College of William & Mary in 1693, making it the second-oldest collegiate institution in the United States.

However, King William profited handsomely off of the Royal African Company, a mercantile trading company that shipped more slaves to the Americas than any other institution in the three centuries of the Atlantic slave trade.

Ted Turner

Liberal logic doesn’t differentiate between people who commit atrocities and those who have indirect ties to systemic racism through no fault of their own. Why should we limit ourselves when owning them?

Ted Turner, the founder of CNN, attended Brown University. The Ivy League school imposes a collectivist ideology on its students, but no matter how hard it tries to act woke, it can’t erase its bigoted past.

Although the founder of Brown was an abolitionist, a university-sponsored study found implacable ties between the school and slavery in early America.

You bet we will! This BLM movement are phonies and spoiled children who are mostly White young college educated females! They don’t even know how good they have it in this Country, the most non racist Country in the World! Show us another Country where so many different Nationalities live peacefully together. There are a few cops who should be weeded out but it is no reason to destroy our Country!

The Liberals, AKA Democrats, love them, they are the racists. They are the ones who are behind all of the destruction and riots going on. They are the ones who have mislead and outright lied to blacks for 100 years in order to get and maintain power. They started it when they bought black slaves to work their plantations. They started a Civil War in an attempt to keep those slaves. They are behind all of the mayhem going on today in a last ditch effort to cancel our vote for President Trump in 2016 and his Re-election in 2020.

Yes, I agree! However much I don’t like these liberal institutions for the Leftist thinking, I had to think we must destroy the campuses or make the student all one color. We have to stop tearing down our history; we must learn from our mistakes!
