A statue to Thomas Jefferson on the lawn of the University of Virginia was defaced with the words 'racist' and 'rapist' early on Friday morning, just before the start of celebrations marking the 275th anniversary of his birth.
A UVA spokesman said: 'The university is disappointed that individuals vandalized the statue of Thomas Jefferson on the Lawn on the day that we honor his contributions to our University and to our democracy.
'UVA welcomes open and civil discourse on such important issues. However, acts of vandalism do not contribute to meaningful discussion.
'Crews from Facilities Management are removing the vandalism, and the University Police Department is investigating the incident.'

considering the interaction with sally hemmings, he can’t hardly be both, can he!
Thanks to the nea, the young have no respect for anything. Unionizing teachers was the worst mistake this country ever made.
So if a white does anything wrong, it doesnt matter what else he does, even if it was one of the defining accomplishments of history.
Honestly, those little &#$^%%$# don’t deserve that statue. The certainly don’t derserve to attend a school founded by the man. Pathetic.
They’ll start going after George Washington in due course.
What did Jefferson ever do that was wrong?
If your buying into the hemmings nonsense, all they ever proved was that her offspring had the same DNA as offspring from Jefferson’s uncle.
The fact that “most” historians who are mostly leftist, said they had a “relationship” means nothing to me.
Time to stop accepting leftist revisionist history.
Stephen Ambrose, the eminent historian was asked by Brian Lamb on C-SPAN about Thomas Jefferson fathering Sally Hemmings children and Ambrose said that it was more likely Jefferson's brother and that Jefferson was not the type of person who would speak up and say that his brother did it. He believed that history would eventually judge him correctly.
We have to remember that slavery in those days was very much like abortion is today. It was ingrained in the land and any attempt to overhaul it was met with stiff opposition.
Find the perp and hang him by his gonads from the statue (if he has any?).
Leftist revisionist history will be the death of out culture and nation. These soy boys just can't bend over far enough to ever feel good about themselves so pi#s off and go flail yourself somewhere else.
I believe the term that C.S.Lewis had for such individuals was “trousered apes”, people in whom “education” has not cultivated the ability to be genuinely humane and civil but has instead robbed them of that potential.
There is a reason why scum like Bill Ayers went into teaching teachers.
I could provide a long response to this but it will be a waste of time. I do flirt with a few scenarios to where this country is going. None of my scenarios have happy endings. Our side is weak and feeble so this will continue. The left has finally gotten to the root of America. To abolish our founding as they erode the Constitution will lead to victory to the left. We will wish we had a “benevolent” King George. I am so filled with hate of the left that it consumes me to the point of hysteria...just the way they want it.
Thomas Jefferson did not have a child by Sally Hemmings. It was most likely his brother Randolph as she mentioned him in her writings.
Look up “Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings report” by the Un. of Virginia group of scholars. You might learn something.
Behold what the radical left has wrought.
A generation of angry, ignorant, indoctrinated foot soldiers, who hate America and all she stands for.
I fear that, one day, my children and grandchildren will be forced to put them down, in order to save themselves and their country.
Heck, at the rate things are going, I might be called upon to handle that task myself..
If it isn't, it won't be because they aren't trying.
Bigots. Democrats attack Jefferson who freed his slaves.
Perhaps they can celebrate their bigotted hero Calhoun.
Tell these turds that Communism was invented by a white man and their little utopia dreams with burst.
Waiting for one of these Communist protests to be held to demand that Robert Sheets Byrd’s name (D-KKK) be removed from at least ONE public or private entity.
The silence is deafening.
The issue is never the issue.
Shame them. Mock them loudly.
