At Civil War Manipulated Memory....

On the proposed MLK monument at Stone Mountain, Kevin Levin pontificates:
"The problem is that MLK and black Union soldiers threaten – in a way that no other monument can – the meaning of the place."
And I leave a comment:
No. That is incorrect. They violate the PURPOSE of the memorial. What they THREATEN is not the meaning of this memorial, but its existence. They are encroachment, intended to be just one move to completely wipe out Confederate commemoration there -- and everywhere.

Meanwhile, no matter how hard you try to steer people's minds into your way of seeing history as the ONLY way to see it, and to marginalize the SCV, UDC, and Southern heritage in general, only people who already agree with you pay attention to you. If that were not so, the SCV would not have added 5,000 new members the past three months of the current war on Confederate heritage.
 Truth that Levin will not let through moderation....

  1. Why not a Lee statue on top of the Lincoln Memorial?...or maybe Jeff Davis?...makes as much sense...

    The truth is they don't care about honoring MLK.

    "I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood."

    That's not the flogger dream.
