So tonight, the Sons of Confederate Veterans are celebrating slavery, racism and their culture of white supremacy down in South Carolina. The NAACP will be protesting the SCV’s celebration of a hate-filled ideology and as the local Charleston paper pointed out the Civil War is nothing to celebrate. But the SCV is an organization dedicated to celebrating North American terrorists and American traitors–so their embrace of racism, slavery and hate is just part of their initiation rites.
Still, it is decidedly unAmerican.
Now, we can be sure that the SCV and other Confederate Party dead-enders will deny the connection and continue their spinning of the reasons that they started the Civil War. For over 146 years, they have been selling the idea that slavery and racism were just minor factors inspiring the treason of their Confederate ancestors. That is, of course, bullshit.
And so, to help the SCV with their dance of hate this evening, I offer the following graphic:
