More Confederate Statue Cleansing By Academia

President Jefferson Davis has got to go . . . 
Statues of George Washington, Martin Luther King Jr. and Woodrow Wilson, can all be found on the UT Austin Campus. But another historical figure among them, has some students angry. [More here.]
Evidently, these "educated" students don't know much about Woodrow Wilson. I'm sure their professors will eventually fix that with more spoon-feeding and "condemning the past for not being more like the present." Perhaps, since Wilson was a progressive he, like Margaret Sanger, will get a pass.

And so the PC-circus-soap opera mindlessly drones on.

Woodrow Wilson, leader of the Progressive Movement, ran for reelection in 1916 on the slogan He kept us out of war! then turned around and in April of 1917 asked Congress for a declaration of war in order To make the world safe for democracy.

A most excellent liar, for sure.

Wilson was the first Southerner elected President after the Civil War.

A poor excuse.
