SLU Promotes BLM, Angela Davis

Timothy Birdnow

Well, it looks like they did it. St. Louis University promised as part of the "Clocktower Accords" to erect a monument to the Occupy SLU criminals who invaded the SLU campus during the Mike Brown riots in Ferguson. Well, I found this on the SLU website.

The school administration and the radical President pushing this were blocked by angry alum who thought it disgraceful to honor a bunch of rioters and trespassers, who should have been thrown off campus by police4 as soon as they set foot on the private property, but the administration had other plans. They apparently bided their time and now have the statue up.

Am I wrong? Is this not that statue? Anyone who has seen it please let me know.

Oh, and get a load of this.

"Noted Civil Rights activist and scholar Angela Davis will be the keynote speaker for SLU’s Black History Month celebrations at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 14.

Davis will speak in the Wool Ballroom, Busch Student Center"

End excerpt.

Davis was a terrorist and accessory to murder who was on the FBI's most wanted list. She was acquitted at trial due to the political nature of her crimes (it was 11972 and in California) but she never renounced her communist ties and in fact ran as the VP candidate on the Communist Party ticket.

Being a Communist may not be illegal, but it is hardly a reason for her to be invited to speak at a Catholic university.

Here are a few quotes from Davis:

Feminism involves so much more than gender equality and it involves so much more than gender. Feminism must involve consciousness of capitalism (I mean the feminism that I relate to, and there are multiple feminisms, right). So it has to involve a consciousness of capitalism and racism and colonialism and post-colonialities, and ability and more genders than we can even imagine and more sexualities than we ever thought we could name.


I believe profoundly in the possibilities of democracy, but democracy needs to be emancipated from capitalism. As long as we inhabit a capitalist democracy, a future of racial equality, gender equality, economic equality will elude us.

End quotes.

St. Louis University should be ashamed of itself.
