War Against The South: Renaming The Edmund Pettus Bridge

Obama participates in a march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, AlabamaMuh freedom.

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.

  1. Actually, the new name for the Edmund Pettus bridge should be “Welcome To The New South Bridge”.

  3. The “black belt” of Alabama is a living breathing example of why Blacks should not be trusted anywhere near a ballot box.

  4. Well, obviously the images of this bridge are no laughing matter – as they have been used like a toxick mushroom cloud to befuddle, bedraggle, and bedaub us.

    If we are to prevail over bad publicity like this, we will have to find equivalent images of our own…

  5. @Mr. Brooks…

    ‘The “black belt” of Alabama is a living breathing example of why Blacks should not be trusted anywhere near a ballot box…’

    Sir, if they were not accompanied by so many of us, their suffrage would amount to far less suffering.
