University of Wisconsin students call for removal of Abraham Lincoln statue on Madison campus

MADISON, WIS. — Some University of Wisconsin-Madison students of color want the university to remove one of its most iconic landmarks, a statue of Abraham Lincoln, because of what they see as the former president’s anti-Indigenous and anti-Black history despite Lincoln’s legacy of ending slavery in the U.S.

Two student organizations, the Black Student Union and the Student Inclusion Coalition, pushed for the statue’s removal in early June, days after George Floyd died in Minneapolis police custody and protests erupted nationally over racial injustice.

The students’ efforts gained newfound attention after protesters tore down two other statues at the state Capitol earlier this week — one of Civil War abolitionist Hans Christian Heg and another of a female figure that represents the state’s “Forward” motto.

The toppling of those statues divided the famously liberal city, with activists arguing the action calls attention to inequities long ignored by white liberals and others denouncing the destruction of what they see as symbols having little to do with the Black Lives Matter movement.

When is someone going to just stand up and tell them "NO". Now STFU or get off this campus!

If this continues to be tolerated it is the end of the democratic process.

People are doing by force what they couldn't do at the ballot box.

It is mob rule.

Hmmmmm.

Time for them to quit.

They know what they are doing, trying to provoke a 'hot war', instead of the smarmy bullshit the Left has been pulling for decades.

Those of us who are patiently awaiting the restoration of the Rule of Law, will run out of patience, some sooner than others. We know the first incident and the media would be howling for the confiscation of private arms.

Once that ball starts rolling, it will not, can not stop.
