Silent Sam

Let me first say that I disagree, fundamentally, with all Confederate statues and monuments. They are offensive not only to minority groups who suffered the torture of slavery, but they are offensive to any patriotic American as they are hallmark memorials to traitors. But let’s dig a little deeper and examine the issue of Silent Sam on UNC’s campus…

The Hypocrisy of the GOP and Lindsey Graham

Politicians lie. It’s what they do, and we’re not all that surprised when they do it anymore. We’ve become accustomed to this behaviour. It’s still unfortunate, and it makes my skin crawl that we can’t trust our elected officials to walk the walk after they talk the talk, but it’s not like this is anything new and astounding, either. So it doesn’t surprise me that Lindsey Graham is a liar. But after his Drama Queen performance on Thursday, I really want to dive deep into what he said, the root causes behind the hypocrisy of his words, and the ethical problems facing this one time Never Trumper turned Trump Loyalist.
