Students Want Lincoln Statue Removed from UW-Madison Campus

It stopped being about tolerance or inclusivity a long time ago. Now it’s about the purge of our shared heritage and a rigid adherence to a radical, and fluid, ideology.

MADISON, WIS. (AP) — The leader of a group for Black students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison wants a statue of President Abraham Lincoln in place for more than 100 years the heart of campus removed.

Nalah McWhorter, president of the Wisconsin Black Student Union, told WISC-TV that marginalized students do not feel that Lincoln symbolizes the emancipation of slaves.

“Just because he was anti-slavery doesn’t mean he was pro-Black,” McWhorter told WISC-TV on Thursday. “He said a lot in his presidential campaigns. His fourth presidential campaign speech, he said that he believes there should be an inferior and superior, and he believes white people should be the superior race.”

    Bunch of uneducated idiots.
    Sad to say I graduated from U.W. Madison.

  2. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    typical liberals.

    Hating slave abolitionists because Democrats long to bring back slavery.

  3. Le Roi du Nord says:

    mar:

    And UW probably feels the same way about awarding you a diploma, as obviously the educational opportunity at that fine institution was wasted on you.

  4. Mar says:

    Well, Le Roi, I learned far more at another private college in Wisconsin, Silver Lake College in 2 semesters than I did in my 5 years at UW.
    But at least I have my degree as opposed to you dropping out of 1st grade.

  5. Le Roi du Nord says:

    Wrong again, mar . And I can show you the diplomas to prove it.

    How did the nuns at Silver Lake tolerate your profanity and name calling?

  6. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    Quit diverting from evil of liberals.

    Do you support UW hating and scorning slavery abolitionists?

  7. Le Roi du Nord says:

    k:

    I don’t believe that the UW has a policy that hates and scorns anyone or thing. Except, perhaps, willful ignorance and chronic spewing of falsehoods. Could you provide a copy of that policy, in context, and contains factual statements.

    Nor do I believe in your form of identity politics. I don’t believe all conservatives are evil, or ignorant, or chronic liars like you, mar, and trump. But I could make an exception for you.

  8. Mar says:

    They may not have a policy promoting hate, many professors and assistants do show hate and ignorance. Saw it first hand.
    And then some students. Yes there is hate in some of their souls and minds.

  9. kjanz1899 says:

    If Lincoln was so racist why did he take the actions he did to end slavery?
    Nothing changed because Lincoln the racist is a false premise.

  10. Mar says:

    So, in Chicago, a 1 year old baby was shot and killed today.
    Last weekend, a 3 year old and 12 year old girl were shot and killed.
    I wonder when the looters, rioters, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, liberals/democrats, President Obama will be marching in Chicago to stop the violence?
    I wonder if Senile Joe Biden will condemn the leadership of Chicago, if he remembers is a city.
    I wonder if the liberals here will actually give a crap?

  11. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    So you support the students hating slavery abolitionists?

    How woeful is history at UW these days?

  12. jjf says:

    kjanz1899, ease your pain by making this distinction:  Instead of getting hepped up on the idea of calling a person “racist” as an indelible stain, switch your perspective to the idea of a person having racist thoughts or a person promoting racist policies.

    Yes, Lincoln still had various racist thoughts along the way.  Yes, working to free the slaves was being anti-racist by removing a racist policy.  Yes,  there were and there are people who hold racist and anti-racist ideas at the same time.

    As Ibram X. Kendi put it:

    These are the assimilationists. You can simultaneously believe that the racial groups are biologically equal, that they were created equal, but that they have become behaviorally unequal [because of environment, poverty, etc.]. Assimilationists will argue that Black people are capable of development, and they believe that this belief is progressive but it also is racist.

  13. Le Roi du Nord says:

    k:

    As I have told you numerous times, I don’t support hate of any kind. It is just amazing how short your memory is, and how selective you are with what little you retain.

    Do you support me and join in with denouncing all UW students that support trump? Come on k, show your courage and make a stand against evil, willful ignorance, lying for the sake of lying.

  14. Jason says:

    Hey Foust, take your White Fragility nonsense somewhere else. It’s just weaponized offendedness dreamt up by a Karen with no scientific backing or proof.

  15. Mar says:

    As I have demonstrated here many times, jjf is an expert on racism and racist thoughts.
    Meanwhile, Le Roi makes another hateful statement.
    Just like watching a soap opera. Except, they are too predictable.

  16. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    You did not answer the question.

    Do you denounce the hate of slavery abolitionists by UW students?

    I don’t think you do.

    I think you love the UW liberal hate of slavery abolitionists.

     

  17. Mar says:

    Meanwhile, a 10 10 year girl was murdered last night in Chicago while in her home.
    Of course jjf will blame it on guns in the house.
    But the bullet came from outside the house.
    Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter cheer, along with Antifa and white liberal racists.
    Another dead innocent infant and child dead.

  18. Le Roi du Nord says:

    I sure did, k. You just have such a poor grasp of the written word to comprehend. How sad it is that you wasted whatever educational opportunities you were provided.

  19. Jason says:

    Foust has commented elsewhere since my calling him out, and yet does not respond. Everyone can now see him for the troll he is.

  20. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    nord,

    Where?

    Not very clear, wherever you did it.

    Afraid you will be ostracized at the liberal meetungs?

  21. Mar says:

    There goes Pathological Liar Le Roi lying again.
    You never said anything about your opinion about the hate the rioters and looters and how they hate the abotionionlists and the those who hate the Lady Forward statue.
    So sad you have to continue to lie.

  22. Le Roi du Nord says:

    Very young children can learn to read, yet you two can’t, or refuse, to read. That is a problem only you two can deal with, rather than blame others for you shortcomings. And when you sign up for that intro to reading class enroll dad as well, as he certainly is struggling with comprehension and retention. It is never too late to learn, Make America Smart Again!!

  23. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    I’ll give anyone a free 10 pack of dilly bars if they can point out your, solid, clear denouncement of UW student hate against wonderful Republican abolitionists.

    Go!

  24. Mar says:

    Again, Le Roi Sr, cannot even find his own quote.
    I see, Le Roi Sr, your offspring, Le Roi Jr, or Lying Pat, is imitating you and your lying.
    You must be so proud.

  25. Le Roi du Nord says:

    k:

    And again you forget that you don’t get tell others what to do, say , or how to think. Your authoritarian tendencies are on full display.

  26. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    Don’t indicate you have denounced this awful liberal UW student attitude, when you have not.

    No one can find your quote you allege even when I offer free ice cream.

    Are you going to denounce this awful liberal UW student behavior, or not?

     

     

  27. jjf says:

    Y’all know that comment threads are routinely erased from here, right?

  28. Le Roi du Nord says:

    “free ice cream

    Isn’t that a violation of one of your commandments?

    No k, I won’t denounce anything you propose, mainly because you have shown a long-term disregard for ignoring common definitions of words, and making up some pseudo-conservative jibberish to suit your ideological rant du jour.   I will, however, denounce criminal behavior of all types.  And promote our long standing policy of presumption of innocence.

  29. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    So you cheer ignorant UW students hating abolitionists?

    You keep saying you denounce hate? Why not awful leftist hate?

  30. Randall Flagg says:

    Kevin:

    What belief of Lincoln (expressed in speeches) concerns the black students at UW-Madison?  Or is it possible you have not done any research on Lincoln beyond what your sanitized history classes taught you?

  31. Le Roi du Nord says:

    k:

    No. I denounce double talking, deceitful, and self righteous folks like you.

  32. Mar says:

    So, jjf, you excusing Le Roi’s dementia. And you support lying.
    What a stand up guy you are.

  33. jjf says:

    Jump monkey, jump!

  34. Mar says:

    Using your racism again, jjf?
    That white hood cutting off the blood flow to your brain again?

  35. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    There you libs are:   on full display.   Hating slavery abolitionists.

    Awful. Just awful.

    I knew libs were for slavery.  I never thought you libs would be this overt about your pro-slavery position in 2020.   1860, yes.   2020…just shocking.

     

  36. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Free 10 pack dillys still available if someone can point out Nord’s alleged statement denouncing these hateful UW thugs hating on slavery abolitionists!

    Nord said it was obvious.

    Nord refuses to denounce this hate….and it is awful.  Just awful.
