Letter Campaign
I am sure many of you are aware of the situation in Auburn, AL. For those who might not have heard, City Councilman Authur Dowdell, a self proclaimed civil rights activist, went to Auburn’s Pine Hill cemetery and removed Confederate Battle flags placed their by the local UDC in honor of Confederate Memorial Day.
Not only did he remove the flags, but he broke several and threw them in his car.
This is an outrage to say the least, and in my opinion a hate crime. There has been media coverage across the nation. The desecration of graves should never be overlooked and swept under the carpet. That is why I am requesting that each of you write a letter to the Mayor, City Council members, and the District Attorney’s office. I am attaching the email and snail mail addresses for each of those people. Please remember to make your letter professional with no expletives. One suggestion is that you demand the resignation of Authur Dowdell for his hate crime against a soldier who fought on American soil for freedom.
If we allow this to go unchallenged, we are opening the doors to endless possibilities of atrocities that the politically correct crowd will do – like spray paint our monuments. Please join me in speaking out against such hateful conduct for an elected representative.
