In the latest backlash against Confederate monuments, the statue commonly known as “Silent Sam” at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was found vandalized on Sunday — with statements spray-painted all around it, saying: “Black Lives Matter,” “KKK,” and “Murderer.”

The student newspaper at UNC-Chapel Hill, The Daily Tar Heel, tells the story of the monument:

In 1913 Silent Sam was constructed as a monument to the more than 300 UNC students who died in the Civil War. The sculptor, John Wilson, made the soldier “silent” by leaving out the cartridge box on the the soldier’s belt, meaning he could not fire his gun. The monument was paid for by the Daughters of the Confederacy.

Julian Carr, the namesake of Carrboro [a city in North Carolina], spoke at the monument’s dedication. In his speech he recalled the time he whipped a black woman for insulting a white woman.

“The extensive discussions with the Carolina community this past year by the Board of Trustees and University leadership and the work we will be doing to contextualize the history of our campus is a big part of advancing those conversations,” a university spokesman said in a statement, the Tar Heel reports. “We welcome all points of view, but damaging or defacing statues is not the way to go about it.”

The base of the statue, now defaced, has been covered up with a white tarp and duct tape.

Another notable aspect of Silent Sam, and the mythical imagery that surrounds many Confederate memorials, is that this statue faces northward — as if the Southern hero is preparing to meet the oncoming Yankees.

There is, however, one little historical problem with this bit of imagery: North Carolina was taken by the U.S. Army from the southern direction, as General Sherman and his men made their way up from Georgia and then into the Carolinas.

James Loewen, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of Vermont, and author of multiple history books, including Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong, and Lies Across America: What Our Historic Sites Get Wrong, offers an interesting perspective on the rash of vandalism against monuments that were erected both to promote white supremacy and to distort history.

“I’m in favor of the vandalism,” Loewen, whose work has focused a great deal on educating the public on racism and social progress (and setbacks) throughout American history, told The National Memo. “I think it shows progress when Jefferson Davis gets vandalized at the University of Texas. A few years ago, Martin Luther King at the University of Texas got vandalized so often that they had to post a 24-hour guard, and then installed TV cameras. Maybe we are moving toward a better day in race relations.”

The vandalism of the Martin Luther King statue at the University of Texas, which Loewen refers to, occurred repeatedly in the mid-2000s.

While favoring the defacing of Confederate monuments in the immediate term, Loewen also had his own suggestion for what to do with them. “Historians are always advocating that we should ‘contextualize’ monuments,” Loewen explained. “Silent Sam deserves to have a historical marker in front of him, summarizing what Julian Carr said at his dedication. That would provide important context for the meaning of Silent Sam in his time — and perhaps in ours.”

In Carr’s dedication speech, the industrialist benefactor recounted the “duty” of the Confederate soldiers after the Civil War, in the reassertion of white supremacy against the empowerment of the liberated black people — and shared his own personal anecdote of how the university had provided him shelter in this task when he returned home from Robert E. Lee’s army:

The present generation, I am persuaded, scarcely takes note of what the Confederate soldier meant to the welfare of the Anglo Saxon race during the four years immediately succeeding the war, when the facts are that their courage and steadfastness saved the very life of the Anglo Saxon race in the South — when the “bottom rail was on top” all over the Southern states, and to-day, as a consequence, the purest strain of the Anglo Saxon is to be found in the 13 Southern States — Praise God.

I trust I may be pardoned for one allusion, howbeit it is rather personal. One hundred yards from where we stand, less than ninety days perhaps after my return from Appomattox, I horse-whipped a negro wench, until her skirts hung in shreds, because upon the streets of this quiet village she had publicly insulted and maligned a Southern lady, and then rushed for protection to these University buildings where was stationed 100 Federal soldiers. I performed the pleasing duty in the immediate presence of the entire garrison, and for thirty nights afterwards slept with double-barreled shotgun under my head.

Silent Sam is not the only statue of a Confederate or white-supremacist luminary to fall victim to these latest rounds of vandalism.

          Try again Joey lad….Is “different” your way of absolving yourself of bigotry? No difference in the attitudes of men like Jefferson Davis or the richest southern plantation owners who believed it was their “wealth” entitlement to buy and sell human beings, who like you, considered their “inferiors? How is that different from the southern and midwestern rich males who still believe “it’s a MAN’s world?” And THAT world entitles them to first pickings and everyone else gets their scraps. The ideology is the same today as it was for Neanderthal men…Me, Me, Me.

            Joe T…Which flag is on the Iowa Jima Memorial? Which flag was flown when JFK was assassinated in TX? Which flag was planted on the first moon landing?

            Please take the time to reread your posts. They make absolutely no sense. Your attempts to justify the KKK and White Supremacists only prove the state of your mind…and it isn’t good.

            Nathan Bedford Forrest, fought in the Civil War. He also was the first Grand Wizard of the KKK, which he and several other of his white male supremacists started in 1862 in Pulaski TN.

            That flag has NO place in our country. It is a piece of history that men like you want to keep alive for no reason other than to puff up your male egos and prove how supreme and omnipotent you are. We all know you are not.

            In 1960, 9 men dared to desegregate an all white McCory’s in Rockville, SC …all hell broke loose and that CONfederate flag was used to intimidate.

            So now you think you have the balls to justify the use of the flag Robert E. Lee himself stated in his speech of surrender, “should be furled and stored away.” He also left his last wishes to be that NO CONFEDERATE uniform should be allowed at his funeral.

            You need professional mental help. No American with any sanity buys your posts of validation of that which WE KNOW is wrong and your try to prove is right.

            You can post all the BS you like. But, you will NEVER change the fact that Indiana hanged 2 innocent men and nearly a 3rd, that 5 little girls were killed in a church basement by hater boys like you of the KKK and that Viola Liuso and her two black companions were killed. Byron de la Beckwith was at age 70 finally convicted of KKK killings as a Klan member So…Tell us …which Klan Klabbern did your Big Daddy belong to?

            All of these are too well documented by hundreds of US media sources, encyclopedias and library archives. So..go ahead and insist you are always right. All you CONS do is prove how over the edge your mental state is.

            {Psychosis is a serious mental disorder characterized by
            thinking and emotions that are so impaired, that they indicate that the person
            experiencing them has lost contact with reality.}

            who are suffering from psychosis to hurt themselves or “others”. It
            is important to see a doctor right away if you or someone you know is
            experiencing symptoms of psychosis.}

            Reading her troubling posts in a public forum with the
            intensity of her language and hatred.

            This reply to ELEANORE WHITAKER is for her health and our
            safety for cause.

            Eleanore Whitaker your vitriolic posts are neither rational
            nor logical.

            Not rational, sans pretext attacking the messenger
            vehemently.

            Not logical, for the message (post) is verifiable from
            public sources.

            Reporting of an event/dialogue, sans spin is foreign to you;
            effrontery is not.

            Posts are difficult for you to comprehend and troubling in
            your mind.

            Posts you attack are canny to others in political public
            forums.

            Events regarding U.S. politics, terrorism and social issues
            are verified worldwide.

            Irrational disparaging words refute your posts and do not
            boaster your point.

            Reflect on your mental state it compulsively makes you
            “act” obdurate to others.

            Irresponsibility is not beneficial to public forums posted
            by you.

            Succinctly it’s an offensive method you use trying to impugn
            truth, which is coupled with an inability to express any positive emotions
            without a spin doctor rhetorical reply from you.

            Continuing “ad nauseam” (like you) to explain your
            inane uneducated replies of your temerity and unintelligible palaver that reeks
            with ill bipolar tendencies resulting in minatory statements by you exhibiting
            personal rage sans cause.

            Pursuant to your passive-aggressive behavior albeit formed
            years ago in your psyche via physical or mental post- traumatic event you may
            have encountered “maybe” thru no fault of your own, causing your
            evidentiary delusions in your state of mind.

            {Opinion vs fact – An opinion is not fact – a fact is not
            opinion. Debate vs argument -to debate is to utilize logic – to argue is
            embracing violence. Assertiveness is being confident while aggressiveness is
            truculent. Strangers don’t interact in a bombastic manner like you. Treatment
            is highly recommended for you with a Psychiatrist who can dispense Psychotropic
            medications for your mental (thought process) state that emulates the radical
            thought process of Islamic Muslims having truculent tendencies that you
            emulate.}

            compulsion…..beheading etc.

            R U an acolyte of radical Islamic teachings or still a
            Communist/Sociopathy sympathizer?

            Psychopathy and sociopathy are anti-social personality disorders.

            The difference between a sociopath and a psychopath is
            germane to society.

            One hates people – the other hates them enough to kill them;
            e.g. Islamic radicals.

            You categorically exhibit radical emotional rage for anyone
            to ascertain and witness.

            Your intelligence level is self-evident lacking in common
            sense sans credibility.

            Good luck trying to enjoy a sane life in the chaotic world
            your thoughts delve in.

            Cease embarrazzing yourself in public forums with rude
            personal angst posts.

            Posts so rambling and so far out in LEFT field you’re not
            even in a forum’s ballpark.

            You consider all news reported worldwide to be false
            regarding Dems/Obama.

            win”- Shakespeare

            You are attempting to defend Dems/Obama! Did someone mortify
            you mentally? Your putative mental obsession to attack strangers is aberrant in
            societal interaction. Hence, a psychological analysis is recommended. Pursuant

        Actually, one of the worst lynchings by a racist mob occurred in a midwestern state: Indiana. Three black men were accused of “looking at a white woman while she and her “man” were crossing a street. Two were hanged and when it was discovered they were no where near the street upon which the Flower of Dixie Belle womanhood had been, the third black man’s life was spared. You can find this on Google. It is the most disgusting example of white male supremacy. First they lied and hanged 2 black males and then they skulked off leaving the third male nearly dead. So no…it isn’t just the deep south. It IS the CONfederacy.

  2. yabbed says:

    What’s to honor about treason and white supremacy? The confederate flag is the flag of sedition and defeat. A better representative flag for the confederacy would be the white flag of surrender.

  3. Paul Bass says:

    Read your history people.

    This “confederate flag” was actually the battle flag of the northern virginia regiment. It had little to do with “heritage” or “history”.

    It was put up all over the south in the 1960s as a response to federal civil rights legislation.

    It is not “heritage”, or “history” it is racist bigotry, pure and simple.

Rogers[11]

    There were three successive national flag designs that served as the official national flags of the Confederate States of America (the “Confederate States” or the “Confederacy”) during its existence from 1861 to 1865.

    Since the end of the American Civil War, private and official use of the Confederacy’s flags, and of flags with derivative designs, has continued under philosophical, political, cultural, and racial controversy in the United States. These include flags displayed in states; cities, towns and counties; schools, colleges and universities; private organizations and associations; and by individuals.

    The state flag of Mississippi features the familiar Confederate battle flag in the canton, or upper left corner, the only current U.S. state flag to do so. Georgia’s state flag is very similar to the first national flag of the Confederacy, the “Stars and Bars”; a prior design incorporating the Confederate battle flag was in use from 1956 until 2001.

    Geezus! Leave the war memorials alone! The Civil war happened! The Rebel flag was a battle flag in that war. It only turned into a flag of hatred and bigotry when the hard line bigots resurrected it in the sixties as a symbol of their hate! You can’t erase a war that took more lives than WWII, Korea and Vietnam! The monuments are in remembrance of all the lives lost for right or wrong! Why are there always people that have to go way overboard on a issue and ruin the intent for all!!

    • Eleanore Whitaker says:

      highpckts…That’s not actually true. The Stars and Bars has ALWAYS been a symbol of the Confederacy. When I visited Florida in the 60s, that flag flew from segregated schools…why? It flew from the municipal government buildings, also segregated, why? If it is only a battle flag, do explain what the hell “battle” these segregationists were fighting in the 60s?

      • highpckts says:

        You said it as I did! In the sixties! The flag was usurped by the bigots for another purpose other than a battle flag!

        • Eleanore Whitaker says:

          If you trace the history of who has used the Confederate Flag, from sharecroppers in the early 1900s to the Grand Old Ladies of the Sons of the Civil War in the 1890s, you see that flag in all its prominence.

          It didn’t just magically resurrect itself in the 1930s and 40s when the KKK used it. The Stars and Bars is a flag that as Senator Lindsay Graham stated 3 weeks ago, “It is WHO WE are.”

          Now, if only he could explain how a flag that represent the KKK leader of 1862 (Nathan Bedford Forrest) is “who they are,” perhaps the sight of that flag would not curl patriotic Americans blood. Our vets fought in WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, The Gulf Wars and Iraq under the Stars and Stripes. No other flagt should have ANY significance.

            Because for many, in the south, that is who they are.

            Ida, I so agree. The reality is that the south and midwest are as male dominated as the GOP party is. When you look at who benefited most from the Civil War, you see it wasn’t women. It was rich males, who without free labor, had the most to lose and did once they lost the Civil War.

            These are men who live in a world of denial that helps them preserve their ideals of a Confederate Republic ruled by men and only men. The reality is this is not much different today. Look at the legislation in TX, OK, WY, WI, TN, NC, SC, GA, FL and LA…they can’t tell you why only men should be in the White House or why war is their only valid reason for existence. All they know is white male supremacy that is so outdated in blue states.

            That Confederate flag was used by Nathan Bedford Forrest as a battle flag. Then, after he and his white male supremacists lost the Civil War, they used that flag when they elevated him to KKK Grand Wizard. It’s first but not its last. The last one cannibalized a 16 year old girl, repeatedly raped and abducted her and dragged her on his personal train across the US until the law these CONS so hate caught up with him.

            They probably already know that history, but try to keep the rest of the nation from finding out about it. It’s who they are.

          • Eleanore Whitaker says:

            My ex’s family were originally from GA and FL. His grandmother was part Seminole Indian and part Irish. While trying to understand the southern mindset, I once asked her why it was their people believed white skin was far superior to black. She said and I quote her precise words, “Because the darkies are too ignorant to be equal to whites.”

            She also told me something I have never forgotten. She said that soon after the Civil War (she was born in 1898), her “people had to do all the work the darkies did” because Lincoln freed their slaves. She said she worked “picking cotton, tobacco and caning sugar” on what was left of the plantations in Georgia and Florida.

            She said it was the fault of the darkies that they had to “work their fingers to the bone” just to “eat.”

            Speaks volumes of why today’s “uppity” whites in the south and midwest don’t want it known that their families came from lowly sharecroppers who had to “do slave work.”

      So use the actual flag of the Confederacy or better yet the American flag.

    The truth of the Civil War lies with one of its famous generals…Nathan Bedford Forrest…who became the 1st KKK Klan Grand Wizard, who with 6 others, started the KKK in Pulaski, Tennessee. Ku Klux Klan comes from the Greek word for “circle” kyklos.

    What kind of people would elevate these inhumane creatures into ones who are revered.

    • idamag says:

      The kind of person who would erect a statue of hitler.Even thought there might be decent people in the south, it is also full of those functionally illiterate cretins like the person who did the dedication of the hateful statue. They are ugly bullies. I can’t remember who said, “The way for evil to triumph over good is for the good people to say nothing.
