New Orleans

SCV Telegraph

Compatriots,

As you've most likely heard by now, a purge of our history has taken place in New Orleans, Louisiana. In a scene reminiscent of Kristallnacht in 1930's Germany, cultural Marxists leaders of the City of New Orleans attacked and destroyed the first of our monuments erected over 100 years ago in that city. While this is a despicable and depressing episode to those of us who value our history, our ancestors and our own blood, this is one battle in a much larger campaign. Our brothers in Louisiana led a valiant effort to curtail this situation, but the rampant ignorance and vile hatred that exists in New Orleans was too well entrenched. We will continue to fight and we will not back down.

As it stands right now, we are in the process of waging a legal battle over a similar situation in Charlottesville, Virginia. We believe we have much better standing in this situation due to the existence of a State law that protects historical monuments. We MUST get similar laws passed in every Southern State if we are to have legal standing to combat these attacks. If your Division is not working on this type of legislation, now is the time to start.

Ultimately, the road map to victory will be achieved by strengthening your local Camp and solidifying relationships with the powers that be in your area. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of becoming active in your local community and projecting a positive message in an effort to harness a wider base of support. Following this plan will help to head off such despicable situations as occurred in New Orleans before they even get off the ground. As they say, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".

Gentlemen, the fight is not over. But, we must all become engaged in the effort to save our history. If not now, when?

Deo Vindice,

Carl Jones

A symbol of hatred or history? Obama quietly bans Confederate flag at cemeteries

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Monday, August 29, 2016

The Veterans Affairs Department quietly moved this month to ban flying of Confederate flags from fixed flagpoles at the cemeteries it runs, striking yet another blow against the controversial emblem.

Congress had debated and rejected that change, but the Obama administration decided to move forward anyway, saying it was unilaterally imposing the restrictions.
