Black man arrested for ‘N-word’ graffiti, swastikas at Emory University

The Georgia university repeatedly avoided questions about Roy Lee Gordon’s race

Emory University’s Police Department on Wednesday arrested the man accused of writing racial slurs and swastikas at its autism center in early August.

Roy Lee Gordon Jr. (right) is charged with second-degree burglary, Emory officials said in a news release that indicated Gordon is also the same person who allegedly wrote the “N-word” and drew swastikas at the Emory Autism Center last month. He is a former employee of the university.

A police mugshot published by the Atlanta Journal Constitution shows that Gordon is black. This is the first time his race has been revealed publicly.

Although Emory officials have known the man accused of the racial vandalism is black since early August, they have not informed the campus community of his race, which may have put a different interpretation of the incident on it.

Vandals Desecrate Italian Church, Behead Statue of Virgin Mary

Unidentified vandals desecrated a Catholic church in the northern Italian town of Scandiano, smashing the tabernacle and decapitating the statue of the Virgin Mary, Italian media reported Monday.

The tabernacle was jimmied open, and the consecrated hosts were strewn on the floor along with the sacred vessels and other liturgical furnishings were destroyed, Avvenire revealed.

According to Reggionline, the bishop of Reggio Emilia, Guastalla Massimo Camisasca, personally officiated a special Mass on Sunday in the vandalized church of Ca’ de Caroli, offering prayers for the repentance of the perpetrators.

The bishop firmly condemned the incident but invited the entire Catholic community to forgive those responsible. He also recalled, however, that such an act of sacrilege, from the canonical point of view, automatically entails excommunication if the perpetrators were Catholic.

List Of 183 Monuments Ruined Since Protests Began, And Counting

Most monuments torn down were not by protesters, but by city officials after pressure or threats from protesters.

Thirty-three statues of Columbus. Nine of the Founding Fathers. Eight of Saint Junipero Serra. With the frequency of the ongoing iconoclasm, it can be hard to gain a scale of the problem.

For each story that has breached the news cycle, at least a dozen went unreported outside of local media. This detailed list records each instance monuments have been defaced, vandalized, and or torn down since nationwide protests began, updated as more occur.

Some key takeaways include:

  • At least 183 monuments, memorials, statues, and major historical markers have been defaced or pulled down since protests began in May.
  • While Confederate monuments have taken the lion’s share of media coverage, they actually form a minority of the statues targeted.
  • By far the most popular target was Christopher Columbus, with 33 statues in total having been defaced and pulled down.
  • The next most popular targets were Robert E. Lee (9), Serra (8), and Thomas Jefferson (4).
  • The vast majority of the vandals were never charged, with 177 out of 183 instances having no arrests.
  • Most monuments torn down were not by protesters, but by city officials after pressure or threats from protesters.
  • By far the most common route for monuments being destroyed was for protesters to damage it, then the city quickly removing it as a “public safety” hazard, not to be returned.
  • For a majority of the statues removed, the fate of the artwork is currently unknown, while a minority have been moved to cemeteries and museums.

Greece: Angry migrants chop down 5,000 olive trees on Lesbos

Days after video footage surfaced showing groups of migrant men ignoring social distancing measures and ridiculing the police officers trying to enforce them, illegal migrants from the Moria camp on the Greek island have struck again, chopping down 5,000 olive trees.

The destruction of these olive trees, which can take 65 to 80 years to reach stable yields, is being viewed as an assault on Greek history, culture, and identity, as well as an attack against the island’s local economy, the Greek City Times reports.

The olive tree is one of the most ubiquitous symbols in Greece and classical Western civilization. Among other things, to the ancient Greeks, the olive branch served as a symbol of Olympic ideals. It’s for this reason that medalists of the Olympic Games were given “kotinos” – wreaths made of olive branches.

For the ancient Greeks, the olive tree was also viewed as a symbol of peace, wisdom, fertility, and victory, and was believed to have been a gift from Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom.

Almost 1,000 cars torched around France on New Year’s Eve but government insists it ‘went particularly well’

The custom of setting vehicles alight on New Year’s Eve is said to have kicked off around Strasbourg, eastern France in the 1990s, in the the city’s deprived, high-immigrant districts.

Vandals in France torched 945 parked cars on New Year’s Eve in an arson rampage that has become a sinister annual “tradition” amid a row over whether the government sought to play down the figures.

According to the French interior ministry, the total of 945, which included cars that were either “totally destroyed” or “more lightly affected”, amounted to a 17 per cent rise compared to last year.

Despite this, New Year’s Eve “went off without any major incident”, the interior ministry insisted in a statement, adding that there were only “a few troubles with public order”.

In fact, police arrested 454 people over the night, 301 of whom were taken into custody.

On Sunday, the ministry had chosen to release a much lower figure of 650 cars torched, as this only indicated the number of vehicles “set on fire” and not those engulfed in the ensuing flames.

The lower figure enabled it to claim: “Once again this year, the overall number of vehicles burned demonstrates that, however intolerable, the phenomenon is contained”. By this calculation, the rise, it said, was only 48 cars.

‘Victims of Socialism’ event triggers Bernie-loving students

The Young Americans for Freedom chapter at the University at Buffalo drew sharp criticism for an upcoming event on “the victims of socialism,” prompting some students to vandalize their property. After YAF posted about the vandalism on Twitter, one student accused the conservative group of tearing down its own flyers to attract attention, but another student subsequently confessed to the deed.

Members of the University at Buffalo’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter were recently blamed for vandalizing their own flyers, only for a liberal student to confess responsibility.

“Just 2 weeks until our speaker event! Some of our flyers were missing today, so we graciously replaced them for your convenience!,” YAF tweeted on November 20, accompanied by a picture showing numerous gaps where posters were removed.

The posters in question were advertisements for the clubs upcoming event called “The Victims of Socialism,” with the posters featuring a grimacing Sen. Bernie Sanders, reading “Feel the Burn: How Socialism Harmed Millions.”
