Predictably, outrage ensues:
“The Atlanta City Council has passed a resolution which calls on Georgia’s governor to consider adding new faces alongside those already carved into the granite of Stone Mountain.
The 9-2 vote asks Gov. Nathan Deal to establish a committee to examine the possibility of adding famous Georgians such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. or President Jimmy Carter to the rock, which currently bears the images of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.
The resolution does not contain any language demanding the removal of the carvings already on the mountain, though Councilman Ivory Young spoke at length about his desire to see the current carving altered or removed entirely to end the glorification of what he referred to as terrorists, WSB-TV reports. …”
Here’s a swell idea: why don’t we dig up MLK from his grave in Atlanta or go full ISIS and blow up the statue of MaoLK on the National Mall in Washington, DC? That’s essentially what the black community is proposing in Memphis and Atlanta and people are shocked that Atlanta city councilmen are receiving “violent threats” in their email.
Note: Once again, politicians are pandering to anti-Southern sentiment in the black community, and their fanning the flames is causing the situation to spiral out of control. We only report the news here. We see a dangerous climate of anti-Southern hate that continues to escalate.
