Dixie Heritage News – 5/13/2020

COMMON SENSE IS ALL BUT LOST

The League of the South and two of its leaders have filed a motion to be dismissed from a lawsuit filed by DeAndre Harris, who has claimed that he was beaten by a mob after the Unite the Right rally.

Harris, a counterprotester, filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Charlottesville in August, exactly two years after the rally. The complaint alleges a conspiracy to violate his civil rights.

Harris’ lawsuit names nearly three dozen defendants, including lead rally organizers Jason Kessler, Richard Spencer, Harris’ six alleged attackers and various “white supremacist” individuals and organizations. According to the complaint, Harris has moved from Suffolk to Charlottesville since the rally.

After almost six months, electronic summonses were issued to defendants at the end of January and on Monday the League of the South, Michael Hill and Michael R. Tubbs became the first defendants to file a response.

Hill, a founding member of the League of the South, and Tubbs, a Florida-based leader, jointly filed a motion with the League of the South to be dismissed from the complaint. The defendants claim that no factual allegations within the complaint point to actions they did to encourage violence.

“Although plaintiff alleges that third parties at the Unite the Right rally conspired to act and actually acted in a violent, intimidating and threatening manner,” Harris has not proved that Hill, Tubbs or League of the South conspired to act or actually acted in a concerted manner with his attackers, the motion reads. “Plaintiff’s complaint does not contain sufficient factual assertions, accepted as true, to state any claim to relief that is plausible on its face against [Hill], [Tubbs], League of the South.”

Harris’ suit alleges that the defendants — specifically Kessler and Spencer — created a conspiracy to deny black and Jewish people equal protection under the law, leading to the physical assault on Harris.

“A conspiracy to violate Harris’s rights, and the rights of other black and Jewish people and counterprotesters, took place in Charlottesville. In furtherance of this conspiracy, defendants engaged in campaigns of violence, threats and intimidation at the park and its outskirts,” the complaint reads. “This conspiracy involved the attack on Harris because he was black and was designed to intimidate and harass Harris and those similarly situated.”

In addition to the conspiracy to commit violence against people of color and Jews, Harris’ complaint argues that, as a result of the attack, he was subjected to the intentional infliction of emotional distress and that the defendants aided and abetted assault, battery and emotional distress.

Harris seeks undisclosed actual, punitive and exemplary damages from his attackers and the organizers, as well as medical expenses and attorney’s fees.

Counsel for Harris has not yet responded to the motion from the League of the South, Hill and Tubbs. No hearings have been set in the suit.

TRIBUNE PAPERS COLUMNIST MIKE SCRUGGS REPORTS

February 29, I attended an SDLI symposium in Raleigh. Just over 70 people gathered to hear six distinguished academics and authors and discuss the most recent attacks on Southern history and culture. The general topic was Southern culture as it extends broadly to American culture.

We had to have two police officers at the symposium hotel because of a threat from the usual sort of Marxist/Antifa community organizers. The group called itself “Smash Racism Raleigh.” I never saw any of them, but about 2:00 PM the police were reinforced by ten police cars and three motorcycles. About 50 protesters had been deterred from coming on hotel property but gathered in the street to create a media event. They did so by taunting the Raleigh Police, chanting: “Black lives matter, Blue lives don’t” and “Cops and Klan go hand in hand.”

The protesters left abruptly, however, and I was witness to a sweet event that followed and probably made the day a wonderful day for the two police officers in the hotel and for me. A pretty young girl of about seven-years approached the officers and told them: “Thank you for your service.” Despite cultural Marxism, Antifa, and the misguided purveyors of totalitarian political correctness, many of the good things of Southern and American culture and traditions still survive.

IRONED OUT

Democrats in Virginia’s House and Senate finalized the bill over the weekend which gives localities the power to “remove, relocate, contextualize or cover” Confederate monuments.

The bill requires localities to hold a public hearing before voting to remove the memorials. Localities must also seek to give the memorial to a “museum, historical society, government or military battlefield,” but local governments ultimately have the final say on what happens to them.

Cemeteries and the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington are exempt.

Governor Ralph Northam is expected to sign the bill. He is proud to see this measure pass, and looks forward to it reaching his desk,” Northam’s spokeswoman, Alena Yarmosky said.

PETITION CIRCULATING

In response to the bill in Virginia, a petition is circulating online asking the county board in Gloucester County to pledge never to remove, relocate, contextualize, cover, or alter any Veterans Memorial in Gloucester.

ALSO IN VIRGINIA

On Monday Federal Judge Robert Payne warned politicians seeking to rename two Hanover County schools honoring Confederate leaders that it might be too late, under a legal technicality.

The lawsuit, which centers on Stonewall Jackson Middle School and Lee-Davis High School, was before Judge Payne for a motions hearing months before the case is slated for trial.

Payne cautioned that the suit, in full or part, might not make it that far: “I think it’s time-barred,” he said Monday, echoing arguments by lawyers for the school system who said the Hanover NAACP’s constitutional claim triggers a two-year statute of limitations on the original naming decisions.

“The NAACP cannot justify waiting fifty-plus years to file suit,” attorneys for the school system said in papers seeking to dismiss the case last month. “Its delay is inexcusable and unreasonable.”

During Monday’s hearing, NAACP lawyer Cyril Djoukeng tried to assert that the case is about ongoing harm to students, not strictly about the original school naming decisions.

But Payne said it seemed Djoukeng was trying to walk back his statements from a hearing in January. “You’re going to live with what you say in this courtroom,” Judge Payne told him.

After the hearing Monday, Hanover NAACP President Robert Barnette Jr. and attorneys for the group said they are prepared to appeal if Payne dismisses the case or strikes down part of it.

“We have confidence in our claims and in the fact that the School Board’s claims are wrong and discriminatory,” Djoukeng said, reading from a statement prepared immediately after Monday’s hearing.

A decision from Payne is pending.

IN ALABAMA

The Alabama Senate on Tuesday delayed a vote on increased protections for Confederate monuments after an black politician threatened a filibuster.

FORREST ATTACK ADVANCES

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee will no longer be required by law to sign a proclamation that names a day each year after Nathan Bedford Forrest.

The unopposed vote in the Republican-led Legislature moves action to the Senate on the bill that targets Nathan Bedford Forrest. Among the critics of the day dedicated to Forrest is GOP U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who last summer called for Lee to change the law.

The Republican governor pushed the legislation, which initially sought to remove Nathan Bedford Forrest Day as a day of special observance. House lawmakers amended the bill to keep the day in state law, but remove the requirement that the Governor sign off on proclamations for special days of observance.

Politicians did not mention Forrest during brief floor discussion Thursday, according to legislation passed by the state House on Thursday.

NON-HERITAGE NEWS AFFECTING THE SOUTHLAND:

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is one of two members of Congress to announce Sunday night that he is placing himself into voluntary self-quarantine after he interacted briefly with a person who is infected by the novel coronavirus at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland last month.

Cruz said the “interaction consisted of a brief conversation and a handshake” and that he is “not experiencing any symptoms….Nevertheless, out of an abundance of caution … I have decided to remain at my home in Texas this week, until a full 14 days have passed since the CPAC interaction,” Cruz said in a statement shared on Twitter.

The American Conservative Union, which organized the CPAC event, announced in a statement on Saturday that a CPAC attendee had tested positive for COVID-19. While the exposure occurred before the conference, the person still attended the event and is now in the care of medical professionals in New Jersey.

CELEBRITIES CLAIMING CORONA INFECTION

Reports are in that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have tested positive believing they contracted the virus in Australia.

NBA SUSPENDS REST OF SEASON

NBA suspends remainder of season “until further notice” after a Utah Jazz player tests positive for COVID-19.

Following the NBA’s knee-jerk both the NHL (Hockey) and MLB (Baseball) have postponed their seasons.

Many youth and school sports programs across the country, like baseball, track, and soccer, are being postponed or outright cancelled.

SCHOOLS CLOSING

We just received word (Thursday) that the Governor of Maryland has ordered all of the State’s schools to close through the end of March. No doubt other States and/or local school systems will do the same. Likewise, several colleges and universities across the country are suspending classes beyond spring break and/or forcing their students to “attend” classes online.

TRAVEL SUSPENDED

President Trump has suspended all travel to the United States from Europe for the next 30 days. The UK is exempt from the suspension.

ST. PATRICKS DAY CELEBRATIONS CANCELLED

Cities across the country are cancelling scheduled parades and celebrations adding to the hype of Corona Virus. Festivities throughout Ireland are also being cancelled in virus panic.

INFO WARS LEADER ARRESTED

Alex Jones was arrested for driving while intoxicated early Tuesday morning, according to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office.

Jones was booked on a DWI charge at 12:37 a.m. His bond was set at $3,000. Travis County says Jones was released on bond just after 4 a.m.

Further details of Jones’ arrest were not immediately available.

JOE BIDEN, THE MALLEABLE CANDIDATE

Al Benson, Jr., is the Editor-in-Chief of The Copperhead Chronicle.

He is also a regular feature writer for The Southern Patriot, The Dixie Heritage Letter, and other pro-Southern publications.

He is a proud member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, the Confederate Society of America, and the League of the South.

Back in 2007 someone on the internet made an interesting comment about Joe Biden. He said “Biden is the ultimate outsider/insider, whatever you want.” In other words, Biden was for sale to the highest bidder no matter where he was coming from. His son’s dealings with Burisma in Ukraine have long since borne that out.

However, since 2007 Joe Biden has lost whatever sharp edge he once had. All you have to do now is listen to the gaffes when he talks and you can tell his best days are behind him. He recently stated he was running for the senate, and that there had been 150 deaths due to guns in this country–a slight exaggeration to say the least.

He also said that, if elected, he would appoint Beto O’Rourke as his “gun control” czar, really bad news, because good ol’ Beto would outlaw everything except air rifles–and he’d want those to be single shot!

I just spent 19 days in the hospital, so I had lots of time to watch the television news, such as it is. One newscast I did watch nightly was Tucker Carlson’s on Fox News. One night several days back Tucker had some interesting comments on Biden and his ability to be president if elected. He didn’t think Biden was up to being president mentally and he felt that were Biden somehow elected he would be what he called a malleable candidate. In other words, Biden would be easily influenced by someone behind the scenes, who we don’t know at this point. A lot might depend on who his vice president ended up being.

Most realize that, during the Bush 2 administration, Dick Cheney was the real power behind the throne, as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.–America’s unelected government.

Tucker felt it was interesting that, after South Carolina, everybody suddenly jumped on the Biden bandwagon–as if the word had suddenly gone out that Biden was who they wanted no matter what. What happens with Joe Biden and who is involved in that will be worth watching in the days to come. If elected, Biden will, at best, be a figurehead president with someone behind the scenes calling the shots and putting his words in Biden’s mouth–provided Biden can get them all straight.

Biden will be pictured as the “moderate” Democrat (please don’t make me laugh). Trump made an interesting comment a few nights ago. He said that, in some ways, Biden is to the left of Bernie Sanders. That possibility is something worth looking at. No matter what they say, there is nothing “moderate” about any of the Democrats at the national, and most state levels. The Democrats in Virginia are a perfect example.

So keep your eyes open in the days to come because there will be lots of cow chips flying around in the days to come and you don’t want to get hit in the face with any of them.

REMEMBER THE ALAMO!

Dr. Chuck Baldwin is a radio broadcaster, syndicated columnist, and pastor dedicated to preserving the historic principles upon which America was founded.

Twice he was the Constitution Party’s nominee for President of the United States.

March 6th marked the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo outside of San Antonio, Texas, back in 1836. This event is so significant in my mind that I always try to devote a column that honors the heroism of these men on or around the anniversary of the occasion.

For 13 days, 189 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna’s seasoned army of over 4,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of that mission fort knew that they would never leave those ramparts alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live. Yet they chose to fight and die. How foolish they must look to this generation of spoiled Americans.

It is difficult to recall that lionhearted men such as Davy Crockett (a nationally renowned frontiersman and former U.S. congressman), Will Travis (only 26 years old with two small children at home), Jim Bowie (a wealthy landowner with properties on both sides of the Rio Grande) and Almaron Dickinson (a 36-year-old blacksmith and artillery captain who was one of the very last men to die at the Alamo and whose young wife and daughter were two of only three Alamo survivors) really existed. These were real men with real dreams and real desires. Real blood flowed through their veins. They loved their families and enjoyed life as much as any of us do. However, there was something different about them. They possessed a commitment to liberty that transcended personal safety and comfort.

Freedom is an easy word to say, but it is a hard word to live up to. Freedom involves much more than financial gain or personal pleasure. Accompanying Freedom is her constant and unattractive companion, Responsibility. Neither is she an only child. Courage and Honesty are her sisters. They are inseparable: Destroy one, and all will die.

Early in the siege, Travis wrote these words to the people of Texas:

“Fellow Citizens & Compatriots: I am besieged by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna. . . . The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword. . . . I have answered the demand with a cannon shot & our flag still waves proudly from the walls. I shall never surrender or retreat. . . . VICTORY OR DEATH! P.S. The Lord is on our side.”

As you read those words, remember that Travis and the others did not have the National Education Association (NEA) telling them how intolerant and narrow-minded their notions of honor and patriotism were. They didn’t have the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) telling them they were a hate group. A hostile media did not constantly castigate them as a bunch of wild-eyed extremists. As schoolchildren, they were not taught that their forefathers were nothing more than racist jerks. The TSA didn’t have them on a terrorist watch list. Neither did they have 501c3 pastors constantly filling their hearts and minds with this imbecilic “obey-the-government-no-matter-what” misinterpretation of Romans chapter 13.

The brave men at the Alamo labored under the belief that America (and Texas) really was “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” They believed in God and that their cause was just. They also believed that the freedom of future generations depended on their courage and resolve. They further believed their posterity would remember their sacrifice as an act of love and devotion. It all looks pale now.

By today’s standards, the gallant men of the Alamo appear rather foolish. After all, they had no chance of winning—none. Yet the call for pragmatism and compromise never sounded. Instead, they answered the clarion call, “Victory or death!”

Try to remember the heroes of the Alamo as you watch Republicans and Democrats in Washington, D.C., create a more draconian Police State than Santa Anna could have even dreamed of creating.

One thing is certain: Those courageous champions at the Alamo did not fight and die for a political party or for some “lesser of two evils” mantra. They fought and died for a cause—and that cause was liberty and independence.

Those 189 defenders of the Alamo joined the ranks of the world’s greatest freedom fighters: patriots such as the 70 Minutemen (most of whom were congregants in Pastor Jonas Clark’s Church of Lexington) who stood against 800 British troops in the pre-dawn hours of April 19, 1775, at Lexington Green and the hundreds more who joined them at the Concord Bridge a few hours later.

I’m also talking about men such as the great freedom fighter, William Wallace, and his band of 7,000 stouthearted Scots who stood against a force of 18,000 well-trained British soldiers at the Battle of Stirling Bridge on September 11, 1297—and again on July 22, 1298, when Wallace and 5,000 Scots went up against an English force of over 15,000 soldiers at the Battle of Falkirk.

And let’s not forget the single greatest example of men who chose to fight for liberty against the greatest of odds: The 300 Spartans who squared off against more than 100,000 Persians at the Battle of Thermopylae in August or September of 480 B.C. These stories—and hundreds like them—are the heritage of free men everywhere. And the willingness to stand against overwhelming odds for the cause of liberty is certainly America’s heritage.

At the same time, it is extremely important to note that the Alamo defenders (and the rest of the honorable men mentioned above) did NOT act as a mob. These men acted in accordance with the Natural Laws of God, and thus their resistance was just and righteous.

I heard a pastor recently say, “I can find no justification in the Scriptures for America’s War for Independence.” I hope many of his congregants found no justification for staying under his spiritual leadership after hearing that egregiously erroneous exposition.

The only reason a pastor could say such a thing is because he has totally ignored numerous Biblical references and is totally ignorant of Biblical Natural Law. Either that or he is a desperately deceived monarchical statist. Sadly, I would guess that a huge percentage of America’s pastors today actually share this misguided pastor’s sentiment. (Why don’t you ask YOUR pastor what HE thinks this Sunday?)

The heroes of the Alamo, as well as the heroes of America’s fight for independence, acted bravely and in good conscience under the moral laws of God and the just laws of Nature. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote,

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.—Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.”

John Locke (The Father of America’s Founding Fathers) said,

“If a long train of abuses, prevarications and artifices, all tending the same way, make the design visible to the people, and they cannot but feel what they lie under, and see whither they are going; it is not to be wondered, that they should then rouze themselves, and endeavour to put the rule into such hands which may secure to them the ends for which government was at first erected.”

Locke continued:

“Whosoever uses force without right, as every one does in society, who does it without law, puts himself into a state of war with those against whom he so uses it; and in that state all former ties are cancelled, all other rights cease, and every one has a right to defend himself, and to resist the aggressor.”

In line with the law of conscience, for those who advance that civil society’s rules must be abandoned and armed resistance taken (thus putting society in a state of war), there is a standard of proof that must be met, so as to convince The People that the actions taken outside the rules of established law are justified. This is what our founders did when they penned a Declaration of Independence. The founders of the Republic of Texas did likewise.

ONE OF OUR READERS RECENTLY PUBLISHED IN WASHINGTON POST

In reading the March 5 Metro article “In W.Va., a lost graveyard and an unsolved mystery,” I was struck by one sentence: “The American military has long prided itself on the faithfulness with which it recovers the remains of those who died in conflict.”

Interestingly, in the aftermath of the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, just 50 miles north of Harpers Ferry, the Union dead were quickly buried, many in the new Gettysburg National Cemetery, where President Abraham Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address in November of that year.

The corpses of more than 3,000 Confederate soldiers were left to rot where they fell, or shoveled over into mass, shallow graves. And there they lay, for nearly 10 years. Finally, in 1873, it was not the U.S. military but the Ladies Memorial Association in Wake County, N.C., that began to organize the sacred task of interring those remains.

WHAT I LEARNED IN THE PEACE CORPS: TRUMP IS RIGHT

Karin McQuillan served in the Peace Corps in West Africa, was a clinical social worker and psychotherapist.

She is currently active as a writer and regular contributor to American Thinker and American Greatness.

Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, “a fecalized environment.”

In plain English: s— is everywhere. People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water. He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water. Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country. Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it are racism.

Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame Cathedral. The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his head not to see.

I have seen. I am not turning my head and pretending unpleasant things are not true.

Senegal was not a hellhole. Very poor people can lead happy, meaningful lives in their own cultures’ terms. But they are not our terms. The excrement is the least of it. Our basic ideas of human relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.

As a twenty-one-year-old starting out in the Peace Corps, I loved Senegal. In fact, I was euphoric. I quickly made friends and had an adopted family. I relished the feeling of the brotherhood of man. People were open, willing to share their lives and, after they knew you, their innermost thoughts.

The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us. The truths we hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese. How could they be? Their reality is totally different. You can’t understand anything in Senegal using American terms.

Take something as basic as family. Family was a few hundred people, extending out to second and third cousins. All the men in one generation were called “father.” Senegalese are Muslim, with up to four wives. Girls had their clitorises cut off at puberty. (I witnessed this, at what I thought was going to be a nice coming-of-age ceremony, like a bat mitzvah or confirmation.) Sex, I was told, did not include kissing. Love and friendship in marriage were Western ideas. Fidelity was not a thing. Married women would have sex for a few cents to have cash for the market.

What I did witness every day was that women were worked half to death. Wives raised the food and fed their own children, did the heavy labor of walking miles to gather wood for the fire, drew water from the well or public faucet, pounded grain with heavy hand-held pestles, lived in their own huts, and had conjugal visits from their husbands on a rotating basis with their co-wives. Their husbands lazed in the shade of the trees.

Yet family was crucial to people there in a way Americans cannot comprehend.

The Ten Commandments were not disobeyed – they were unknown. The value system was the exact opposite. You were supposed to steal everything you can to give to your own relatives. There are some Westernized Africans who try to rebel against the system. They fail.

We hear a lot about the kleptocratic elites of Africa. The kleptocracy extends through the whole society. My town had a medical clinic donated by international agencies. The medicine was stolen by the medical workers and sold to the local store. If you were sick and didn’t have money, drop dead. That was normal.

So here in the States, when we discovered that my 98-year-old father’s Muslim health aide from Nigeria had stolen his clothes and wasn’t bathing him, I wasn’t surprised. It was familiar.

In Senegal, corruption ruled, from top to bottom. Go to the post office, and the clerk would name an outrageous price for a stamp. After paying the bribe, you still didn’t know it if it would be mailed or thrown out. That was normal.

One of my most vivid memories was from the clinic. One day, as the wait grew hotter in the 110-degree heat, an old woman two feet from the medical aides – who were chatting in the shade of a mango tree instead of working – collapsed to the ground. They turned their heads so as not to see her and kept talking. She lay there in the dirt. Callousness to the sick was normal.

Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It’s not. It seems natural to us because we live in a Bible-based Christian culture.

We think the Protestant work ethic is universal. It’s not. My town was full of young men doing nothing. They were waiting for a government job. There was no private enterprise. Private business was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world bureaucratic kleptocracy. It is also incompatible with Senegalese insistence on taking care of relatives.

All the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians. If a Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he’d go to another country. The reason? Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for free, and you would have to say yes. End of your business. You are not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives. The result: Everyone has nothing.

The more I worked there and visited government officials doing absolutely nothing, the more I realized that no one in Senegal had the idea that a job means work. A job is something given to you by a relative. It provides the place where you steal everything to give back to your family.

I couldn’t wait to get home. So why would I want to bring Africa here? Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on our shores with a visa.

For the rest of my life, I enjoyed the greatest gift of the Peace Corps: I love and treasure America more than ever. I take seriously my responsibility to defend our culture and our country and pass on the American heritage to the next generation.

African problems are made worse by our aid efforts. Senegal is full of smart, capable people. They will eventually solve their own country’s problems. They will do it on their terms, not ours. The solution is not to bring Africans here.

We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world immigration by the hundred million with chain migration. They tell us we must end America as a white, Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation – to prove we are not racist. I don’t need to prove a thing. Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America. They want to destroy America as we know it.

As President Trump asked, why would we do that?

We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in. I was happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor Senegalese. I am not willing to donate my country.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

Dr. Ed is a pastor, college president, historian, the author of over 30 books, an in-demand public speaker, and the host of two radio shows.

He is an active lobbyist, tirelessly petitioning city, county, state, and federal officials on behalf of our Southern monuments and heritage.

He started Dixie Heritage in March of 2015.

I would like to begin by apologizing to Dr. Hill over at The League of the South. I had told him that we would report this week’s lead news story in last week’s issue and in all of the confusion I simply failed to do so.

And I do not normally make outright appeals for financial gifts but we had an unforseen expense of $4,000 this week and I had to cover it in cash. To do so I had to borrow the cash and need to repay this loan quickly lest I impose a hardship on a dear compatriot. So please pray and then give to help offset this emergency expense.

I think the craziest thing to happen this week, all the Corona Virus hype and overrwaction aside, was that syndicated columnist William Spivey referred to Mount Rushmore as, “The Monument to Racists Bigger Than Any Confederate Statue.”

We have been saying for the last five years that this will NOT end with our Confederate monuments. They are just the lowest hanging fruit. The battlefield keeps getting bigger. And as it does, we keep expanding and increasing our effort. But we need new recruits for the Army. Forward your weekly copies of the Dixie Heritage Letter and encourage everyone you know who loves our nation and its heritage to subscribe for themselves.

Deo Vindice!
