For UNC, Silent Sam=”HATE” while ‘Satanic Club’ is OKAY.

We all know about the vandalism of the Silent Sam war memorial in Chapel Hill, and the leftist tantrum over even the thought of repairing and re-erecting it.

I told you recently about a Louis Farrakhan acolyte coming in to UNC’s Asheville campus to keynote their MLK festivities.  This speaker is apparently too radical for the radical leftist “Women’s March” movement.  Yet, as far as we know, she is still ON to speak at UNCA. 

If THAT didn’t turn your stomach, take a look at what’s happening on UNC’s Raleigh campus:

A new club has just completed its inaugural semester at North Carolina State University, welcoming students interested in Satanism.

The club calls itself “Satanic Students at NC State,” and its leaders say they promote humanism and are working to build up the fledgling group at the Raleigh-based public university.

“This semester, the group has held public meetings to attract and gain interest,” Satanic Students told The College Fix in an email interview. “These meetings have largely consisted of discussions with new and potential members about the type of Satanism practiced by the group.”

According to its “get involved” website: “The mission of Satanic Students at NC State University is to 1) encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, 2) reject tyrannical authority, 3) advocate scientific examination of the universe and our place in it, 4) promote morality and justice based on rational, humanistic values, and 5) be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will.”

A recent slide presentation at one of their meetings stated: “Does Satanic Students worship Satan? Short answer: no. Long answer: Satan doesn’t exist,” the Technician student newspaper reported.

“Our principles and those of objectivism overlap by a fair amount and believe that objectivists would find value in our group,” Satanic Students told The College Fix via email.

“At future public meetings, we hope to perpetually refine our group’s mission through identifying, and challenging, consensus views among the membership; acting on those views when sufficient support is reached,” the group said.

In an interview with Technician, Peter Aker, a junior studying chemical engineering and president of Satanic Students, cited an example of The Satanic Temple of Arizona’s “Menstruatin’ With Satan” campaign to distribute free feminine health care products to those in need as the kind of event that illustrates Satanism is not all about Satan worshipping.

“I want to start having more displays of symbology, like having chalkings around campus or putting up posters,” Aker said. “Fitting along the lines of these things like, believing in yourself or loving yourself, talking about individuality. But really it’s all up to the membership and what they want to do.”

According to a 2017 column in Crisis Magazine, a Catholic publication, there is a “growing threat” from Satanism underway in the U.S. The article cites the increase seen recently in “After School Satan Clubs” as well as efforts to get Satanic monuments erected on public land.

“The real issue is all about the mainstreaming of Satanism in America. Much as the same-sex ‘marriage’ debate was about acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle, so also Satanic groups seek social acceptance,” according to the column. “Indeed, this is what the Satanists themselves declare. For them, it has nothing to do with religious practices. Many of them even allege they have none. They simply want to mainstream Satanism so that it will be viewed as normal.”

“… As long as the devil is rejected in the minds of people anywhere, there remains some objective distinction between good and evil.”

  1. Just how much worse can it get in the UNC system with Republican trustees in charge? It’s becoming more dismal by the day.

  2. So this is a pretty harmless group with an unfortunate/ill advised name. The name is probably more to get attention than anything else and it sure worked for the author of this article (B. Clifton).

    Silent Sam, on the other hand, was a prominent symbol of hate for a vast majority of students, alumni, towns people, etc. I propose it be given to some private group to display on their own property. OR have it melted down and reformed into a plaque that explains the South’s dependency on slavery, to the point it would kill hundreds of thousands in order to maintain that form of human exploitation, to be placed where the statue existed for too long.

    1. Listen to your own progressive hero, Karl Marx, who wrote: “The war is not about slavery; it is a war of economic subjugation by the north against the south”. For us non-progressives, the words of British anti-slavery leaders and prominent novelist Charles Dickens, say the same thing: “The Northern onslaught upon slavery was no more than a piece of specious humbug designed to conceal its desire for economic control of the Southern states.”

      The hate involved over Silent Sam is the racist hate by the progressives for southerners and for whites in general. The controversies over the War Between the States have been generated by the hate spewed by the progressive groups for their own political purposes.

      Slavery was not the reason that most of the soldiers on either side went to war. The vast majority of southerners were not slave owners, and most Southern soldiers fought to defend their home against northern invaders. Given the war crimes of Sherman, Stoneman, Sheridan, and others were quite justified in doing so.
