Dawes made the comments last month in relation to the Rothenstein mural and targeted it for criticism because it only features white men and in another outburst because it also features no women. She tweeted: “Mark my words – we’re taking down the mural of white men in the uni Senate room, even if I have to paint over it myself.” In another outburst she said: “ONE OF THE WOMEN JUST SAID “it’s nearly armistice day so we are we covering up this tapestry??” AND HOLY S***. F*** YES. GRL PWER #£sotonsenatelive”.
Joe Simons, Chairman of UKIP Students and President of Kent University UKIP Students told Kipper Central: This whole saga goes to show what we’re up against on university campuses across the country. In all honesty, I don’t think her apology was necessary as we all know that she held those racist, anti-white views before she resigned and will no doubt continue to hold them in the future. This is the face of the modern, ‘progressive’, campus leftist: peppered with white guilt and desperate to tear down our culture and heritage.
Very true and an ugly face it is indeed.
