We have this story out of Atlanta regarding Stone Mountain and the confederate heritage demonstrations. There was a confederate flag rally held at Stone Mountain last month, and while a member of the group claimed the KKK wasn’t there, “the Klan was there, offering salutes and wearing clothing featuring white supremacist slogans and KKK symbols. And why not? Stone Mountain, the spot where the modern Klan was born a century ago, holds special meaning for them.”
These confederate heritage demonstrations at the modern KKK’s birthplace only serve to underscore the fact that confederate heritage is a heritage of hatred, white supremacy, and racist terrorism as well as treason against the United States. “In fact, members of the International Keystone Knights of the Ku Klux Klan organized the Nov. 14 rally — and officials at Stone Mountain Park knew about it.” They’re now planning an openly white power demonstration in April, where you can bet the confederate flag will be prominently displayed.
Richard Rose, president of the Atlanta Chapter of the NAACP, knows what confederate heritage is: “People never want to be called racist, but the actions speak for them. The only heritage of the Confederacy is discrimination, suppression, white supremacy and hate. This flag is the flag of the Klan. It was the flag of the Army of Northern Virginia but the Klan adopted it.”
According to one racist confederate heritage person, “Us as white people — and Southerners, period — that’s kind of our last real monument, something to hang on to.”
