The SCV has joined forces with the NAACP to denounce the Klan for holding a rally in Memphis:
“Lee Millar of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and Pastor Keith Norman, the new president of the NAACP, sat side by to say they don’t want the Klan to hold a rally in Memphis next month.
“We don’t believe in anything they stand for and we’re together on that and wish the Klan wouldn’t come to Memphis,” Millar said. …”
Carl Roden and the Rainbow Confederates at the Southern Heritage Non-Preservation Group are giddy about this opportunity to finally *prove* to the liberal media, the NAACP, and the Left that they are not the “scum of the earth” like “the Klan trash” who are “desecrating Forrest’s last resting place with their presence.”
Those are some strong words from Carl Roden which you would think might be reserved for the NAACP, the black city council, the black mayor, and the black population of Memphis, not the Klan, which you know, actually demanded, spearheaded, and orchestrated the renaming of the three Confederate parks in Memphis including the final resting place of Nathan Bedford Forrest:
“Who knows, perhaps this one common moment will resonate and give lie to the Liberal’s misguided mindsets concerning our heritage? . . .
Rather what I am saying is that all it takes is one small moment to hopefully set in motion something bigger. A way to spread proper education about our heritage to those who still remain blind to all the positive aspects of it. …
In no way do I expect anything to happen overnight, and I absolutely doubt that any chapter of the SCV or the National Leadership will compromise when it comes to our heritage and how our Southern battle flag is defined, quite the reverse in fact. I hope will lead to the ultimate victory we seek in the defense of our Southern heritage, by God’s grace, within our own lifetimes. …
LOL Lani, good analogy. In this case the disease is racism and hate and the carriers are the Klan. They likewise carry and misuse our ancestor’s flag and if I had to march with Billy Sherman’s ancestors to voice my disapproval of that then I would in a heartbeat. …
This act, as small and minor as it is, may well drive a stake through the heart of a wrongful misconception about us as a Southern people, the SCV, UDC and our heritage (assuming it is reported properly…we’ll see) and its an opportunity we can ill afford to take as a movement. …
I think the point of this one moment of common views has more to do with challenging hatred. That is why most of us are here in the first place. …”
According to Carl Roden, the real purpose of the SCV should be “challenging hatred” and fighting the “disease” of “racism and hate” and dispelling “stereotypes” with our “black brothers” in the NAACP … funny, the segregated SCV and UDC in the Jim Crow South, which erected almost every Confederate monument in Dixie, had no interest at all in Rainbow fetishes like arguing with historians about the existence of “Black Confederates” or “fighting racism.”
The only people in our entire history who ever failed to preserve Southern heritage are the Rainbow Confederates like Carl Roden. In every case, the destruction of Southern cities like Birmingham, Atlanta, and Memphis – and by extension symbols of Southern heritage like the Confederate parks in Memphis – was caused by the delusional Rainbow estimate of the character and intentions of the blacks and a desire for reconciliation with them which was never shared by the NAACP or the black community.
Note: The WNs who read this website won’t be surprised to learn that Carl Roden has boasted in the past about his Jewish ancestry. The one Jew on the SHPG Facebook page can be found relentlessly promoting multiculturalism, hysterically denouncing pro-White groups, and aggressively pushing his own agenda of “fighting racism.”
