    Jojo:
    He’s not a statue, but I see Mike Adams is leaving his supposedly tenured professorship at University of North Carolina-Wilmington.  I used to read his stuff a lot and did not stop on purpose, just wandered away from Town Hall. I was always astonished at his fearlessness.

    Googling him last night I came upon his pretty funny Twitter page, and also Rush Limbaugh reading a very funny and very angry letter Adams wrote to a colleague who had described Adams as an embarrassment to the UNC system. Adams’s unpardonable faux pas, to his colleague, was to express that marriage was between a man and a woman.

    So apparently they finally got to him.

    Well now he is a statue, kind of. He was found dead in his home. Possibly of a gunshot wound.

    He did not seem like the suicide type. Whether or not it was suicide, he was a battle casualty.

    The NYT headline described him as “Author of ‘Vile’ Racist and Sexist Tweets”.

    I saw the news of his death.  He was found inside his locked house.  So far no other news.

    I saw this too. It is sad.

  3. https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/08/26/british-museum-removes-bust-of-founder-sir-hans-sloane-from-pedestal/

    The bust of Sir Hans Sloane, who bequeathed some 71,000 artefacts to the British nation in the 18th century that he collected through the proceeds of his wife’s sugar plantation, will now be housed in a cabinet alongside artefacts of the slave trade and a label reading “collector [and] slave owner” alongside an explanatory text about the horrors of slavery, a trade which was stamped out at great cost of lives by the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy in the 1800s.

    The curators of the British Museum said that the move was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement that has targeted historical figures in the UK ranging from Sir Edward ColstonQueen Victoria, and even Britain’s wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill.

    Wow. The Breitbart piece quotes Fischer as claiming that it’s better for Sloane to be off his pedestal anyway, as now he will be more seen and recognized. Uh-huh. Sounds like the Director is trying to have it both ways, perhaps?

    The British Museum has a burying ground?

  6. Sir Winston Churchill’s former home — Chartwell in Kent — has been put on a Black-Lives-Matter-style list of shame by Britain’s leading heritage body, the National Trust.

    Chartwell is one of a number of historic properties which, according to the National Trust, has links to the ‘sometimes uncomfortable role that Britain, and Britons, have played in global history.’  …

    As far as the Trust is concerned, what matters more is that Churchill was sorta, kinda tainted by his vague association with a category it calls ‘colonialism and historic slavery.’

    The list of shame was compiled as part of an ‘audit’ commissioned last year by the Trust as part of the wave of fashionable, politically correct revisionism which has afflicted numerous institutions from Oxbridge colleges (‘decolonising the curriculum’, Rhodes Must Fall, etc) to the Church of England; and which has achieved its apotheosis in the Black Lives Matter protests.

    Churchill’s former home is one of 93 historic English and Welsh houses which the National Trust has placed on the ‘colonialism and historic slavery’ naughty step. Others include Bateman’s — home of author and Empire enthusiast Rudyard Kipling; and Powis Castle, which belonged to the son of Robert Clive (‘of India’).
