Silent No More
By now, most of you are well aware that Silent Sam was vandalized on the UNC campus. In the past few weeks, memorials have been vandalized in Richmond, Va and Charleston, SC as well as Salisbury, NC.
Elected officials and authorities should be upholding the law rather than issuing stand down orders which make them complicit in these crimes. We should be calling and emailing our local council members, mayors, and our state legislators to express our disapproval in the handling of these events. The law is clear. Veteran’s memorials are protected by state law. There should be no discussion on “what to do with Confederate statues” by specially formed and appointed committees. The only lawful conclusion must be to leave the monuments in place. Otherwise, the committees are advocating the circumvention of law.
We have seen that politicians, law enforcement and the courts will not always conduct themselves honorably. Sadly, justice isn’t always served. When there are little or no consequences for criminal action, it only emboldens the violent socialist organizations. They start to feel invincible when they are not held accountable for their actions.
But, OUR actions CAN make a difference. Besides contacting your officials, you can support the NC Division of the SCV in restoring memorials, like the one in Durham, as well as erecting new ones. Antifa tears down, but we continue to build up. Please, join the efforts by donating today.
To some, they may be only statues. To us, they are memorials to our family members; brave men who risked their lives and gave their lives in defense of their homes. The agenda of the militant left is not just to eradicate Confederate history. The goal is to destroy our legacy of Judeo-Christian principles, love of liberty, and strong sense of community, thereby ripping apart the very fabric of our nation. Ignorance, propaganda and lies have permeated our society and we must fight back. Making a donation today to the Memorial Fund is a great place to start.
