The PC jihad against all thing Southern continues in Selma:
“The Alabama Senate on Wednesday voted to rename Selma’s Edmund Pettus Bridge, site of 1965’s Bloody Sunday and the subsequent Selma-to-Montgomery March.
The resolution, sponsored by Sen. Hank Sanders, D-Selma, would rename the 75-year-old bridge the Journey to Freedom Bridge, following a grassroots movement by a group called Students UNITE to rename the structure. The group collected 180,000 signatures on a change.org petition urging the renaming. …”
I have mixed feelings about this one.
Personally, I associate that bridge more with the Civil Rights Movement than the Confederacy. The “Freedom Bridge” might actually be a good name for it in the 21st century. After all, the first thing anyone notices in Selma after crossing that bridge is all the trash, graffiti, weeds, blighted buildings and other obvious signs of decline in the vicinity of what used to be Craig Air Force Base.
Note: If you haven’t already read Pat Buchanan’s article on the removal of that Catholic priest statue at SLU in St. Louis, you should do so.
