Two Intolerant Hate Groups – SPLC & NAACP
To the Editor:
I read an article where the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery is compiling a map of all the Confederate statues & monuments across America with their intended purpose of targeting them all for eradication. If they did this to any other group of Americans the full force of America`s laws would come down on them & stop their selective racism & bigotry.
The S.P.L.C. is not an extension of government & they have not to my knowledge been directed by the government to do this. This has to be illegal as it is akin to singling out a group & stalking them.
The only reason they & the N.A.A.C.P. have declared war on Southern history is because they are desperately trying to create an enemy to fill the void left when their initial goal of winning Civil Rights for everyone was won in 1964. Since that time they have been creating boogey-men left & right trying to remain relevant & viable organizations lest they disappear into the pages of history as groups.
They are doing to to Southerners as they claim was done to blacks in the 1950 – 60`s & two wrongs will never make a right no matter what they do or how hard they try. All this will accomplish is to drive a wedge deeper between the races as everyone is entitled to their own unique & diverse history including the South.
If we had a judicial system or politicians worth their salt they would put an end to these two groups witch hunts before they completely destroy every last bit of goodwill between America`s many diverse peoples. It is impossible to be a nation of inclusion when groups like the S.P.L.C. and N.A.A.C.P. want to do the picking of which groups of people are included & which groups are excluded.
By these actions all you are doing is creating animosity among the excluded & ensuring that any racial drifts that exist never mend. Does America still have room for all her sons & daughters? Obviously not according to both these groups.
