Indignity at UVA

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Andrew Jackson’s birthday was respectfully observed by President Trump on March 15th, and celebrated by some on social media. I happened upon the Twitter profile of a Mr. Siva Vaidhyanathan when he chose to scold a stranger for her post honoring Jackson. Siva had chosen to insult an honorable lady who has a strong connection to her pre-Revolutionary roots in Virginia. He maligned her from his post at, of all places, the University of Virginia, at its Center for Media and Citizenship.

He went on to say:

Could the subversion of Jefferson’s legacy be any more effectively encapsulated that in an exchange where the child of an immigrant uses his post at a university built by one of America’s most revered forefathers to heap scorn upon the people to whom the institution was bequeathed?

Here he demonstrates how much cherishes the legacy of Jefferson:

A further scan of Vaidhyanathan’s timeline unearths more venom. Here he compares Robert E. Lee, a gentleman widely admired for his accomplishments and character, to Osama Bin Laden: 

Actually, this is not true. “We” have not decided not to honor Robert E. Lee. “We” have been invaded by those who never did.

Here is what he said before, and then after, the election of Donald Trump to the presidency:

One wonders why Vaidhyanathan’s father, who “could have chosen any country in the world,” chose to immigrate to a white-majority country if white-majority rule is so objectionable, particularly when many those white people are apparently “terrible racists.”

One also wonders how an immigrant, whose child broadcasts contempt for the founding population of his adopted country, fails to understand the cause for that same population’s rising anti-immigrant sentiment. And what might we say about the character of a person who profits from what others have built, then devotes the profits to maligning the builders?

Whatever his family’s academic contributions, it is difficult to imagine what would be enough to justify the haughty contempt with which Vaidhyanathan treats our nation’s Founders and those who today still cherish their memories and wish to celebrate their accomplishments. And we certainly do not suffer from a dearth of habitually fault-finding social justice warriors.

Vaidhyanathan’s profile header states in bold type “I AM AN AMERICAN,” but in what sense? Other than being born on American soil, it seems to mean little. He uses his platform to malign and destroy the things the historic American population hold dear, and advocate to bring in others who wish to do the same.
