Mao Zedong Bust Displayed On College Campus


The University of Florida recently named a group study room after Karl Marx. The University of Florida. Karl Marx. (They have since reconsidered.)

The recognition and celebration of history’s most radical and deadly leftists is virtually ubiquitous at today’s moron factories on today’s college campuses. The Karl Marx Group Study Room was to be one of 14 such spaces on the school’s campus and the biggest in terms of occupancy. Marx is most notable for authoring The Communist Manifesto, a book published in 1848 that critiques capitalism and that paved the way for communist revolutions around the globe. Revolutions that led to the deaths of more than 100 million people in the Twentieth Century alone. If that’s not enough to get a guy honored on an American college campus today, what is?

Apparently being personally responsible for 45 million deaths, as in the case of Mao Zedong, the Chinese communist revolutionary and mass murderer, whose bust is on display in Washburn University’s political science department. In fact, Zedong’s likeness dwarfs that of most of the others in the Kansas school’s display case of political figures. Well, Chairman Mao is generally considered the largest mass murderer in history, an accomplishment deserving of recognition with a large bust, no? (Mao shares the display case with other leftist luminaries such as Bill Clinton and Bernie Sanders. One of the few “conservative” figures on display is a bobblehead version of Mitt Romney.)

Grant Armstrong, a lecturer in Washburn University's political science department, told Campus Reform that Mao’s bust has been on display for at least two years. He noted, “It’s bigger than any American political figure. It's emblematic of academia today.”

Armstrong added, “I'm a center-left guy, but I don't know if there’s room for people like me in academia anymore. It’s not just conservatives being targeted, it's also those who don't toe the far-left line.”

You think?

Statues and busts of American founders and patriots such as Thomas Jefferson, George Washington-- and even Abraham Lincoln-- have recently been destroyed or moved from city centers and college campuses, but the likes of Mao Zedong and Karl Marx are being highlighted and glamorized on college campuses around the country. This is (part of) the end result of the left’s successful late 1960’s vow to embark on “the long march through the institutions.” They have been remarkably successful in doing this, and now have total control of most of the federal government, mainstream media, Hollywood, academia, corporate boardrooms, Big Tech, and Wall Street, among other entities. This was achievable largely due to the fecklessness, cravenness and greed of the Republican Establishment, which, when push comes to shove, always backs down when leftists, media and The Deep State (Swamp) call them names. If these RINOs were serious, they would take these childish and vacuous attacks as a badge of honor. But, of course, they aren’t serious and don’t really believe in anything greater than themselves.

Leftists, often in league with foreign actors, know if they erase and/or impugn the very notion of American greatness and history, they can eventually uncouple the American people from their dedication to the nation.

And then statues of Jefferson, Washington, and Lincoln are destroyed or moved—and busts of Marx and Chairman Mao adorn college campuses.

Hell, let’s get rid of any and all commemorations of Lewis & Clark, the Wright Brothers, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Dr. Jonas Salk, FDR, JFK, and Ronald Reagan, among others-- and replace them with images of Pol Pot, Kim Jong un, Ida Amin Dada, Hugo Chávez, Nicolas Máduro, Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamene Jean-Claude Duvalier hori, Jean-Claude (“Baby Doc”) Duvalier, Justin Trudeau, and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. That’s democracy!

These are extremely volatile and dangerous times for representative democracies. Authoritarians are everywhere ascendant.

In America, there is no viable way forward other than with a Trump, Desantis, or Cruz. And then only if each of them put away any interpersonal enmity. If they don’t, they will have proven that even they care more about themselves than their country.

In the case of the United States, the way forward means going back to where we were just 2 years ago: with historically low unemployment, energy independence, and confidence in our future.
