Allen Armentrout is a complete moron and unfortunately for him, that stupidity has now lead to him being kicked out of the Christian college he attended in Florida. Over the weekend you may have run across a picture online of Armentrout standing in front of Charlottesville’s Robert E. Lee statue and saluting it while holding a Confederate flag and wearing the treasonous army’s uniform. In the photo a woman is seen standing in front of him with her middle fingers in his face.
In an interview with the Pensacola News Journal, the Christian college student said he drove to Charlottesville because he wanted to represent what “he believes” and “teach” people that the South was totally not fighting for “slavery or oppression” (even though the Articles of Secession prove they were because every state mentioned slavery haha). Well, it turns out Armentrout’s trip to teach people revisionist history, while dressed as one of the Neo-Nazi protesters from the “Unite the Right” rally a week after Heather Heyer’s death, wasn’t a very good idea:
I have been released from my school and will be unable to return to college to finish my senior year,” Armentrout told WXII in an interview. “I’m processing this and making adjustments to my life to compensate for this scrutiny.
The college explained their decision in a statement:
Pensacola Christian College recognizes the dignity and value of all people, and we respect the history of America. We encourage individuals to exercise discernment and seek to build reconciliation, especially during a time of mourning like Charlottesville is experiencing.
We have absolutely zero sympathy for this guy. He chose to drive to a city that was mourning and act like an asshole, now he is paying for that. His school doesn’t want anything to do with someone like him and we do not blame them. Actually, we applaud them.Well done, Pensacola Christian College.
Well done, Pensacola Christian College. Well done.
