Hate Not Heritage: Mostly White Confederate Heritage group has hurt feelings over slain Black Civil Rights leader being memorialized at the birthplace of the second era Ku Klux Klan

The Georgia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans has issued a statement of their butthurt over announced plans for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to be memorialized at Stone Mountain, Georgia, the birthplace of the second era Ku Klux Klan





"(ATLANTA – October 12, 2015)    The Georgia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans responded today to the proposal by the Stone Mountain Memorial Association to erect a monument to MLK, former black civil rights activist.  This decision by the Stone Mountain Memorial Association is wholly inappropriate in that it is an intentional act of disrespect toward the stated purpose of the Stone Mountain memorial from its inception as well as a possible violation of the law which established the Stone Mountain Memorial Association and charged it with promoting the mountain as a Confederate memorial.   
The Venable family, which owned Stone Mountain in the early 1900′s, leased the face of the mountain to the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1916 for the purpose of creating a carved memorial to the Confederacy.  The UDC contracted Gutzon Borglum, who later sculpted the Mount Rushmore carving; after the work was halted due to a disagreement with Borglum, the carving remained unfinished for several decades.  As the state began to discuss interest in reviving the memorial project as a state project, the Venable family deeded the land to the Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial, Inc. in 1956.  Two years later, in 1958, the state of Georgia purchased Stone Mountain; and the General Assembly created the Stone Mountain Memorial Association expressly to maintain the mountain and all adjacent property as a Confederate memorial and complete a portion of the original design for the carving.    
The act of the General Assembly which created the Stone Mountain Memorial Association specifically states the park, including both the mountain and all adjacent property, is to be maintained and operated as a Confederate memorial (OCGA 12-3-191).   The erection of monuments to anyone other than Confederate heroes in Stone Mountain Park is in contradistinction to the purpose for which the park exists and would make it a memorial to something different.  The park was never intended to be a memorial to multiple causes but solely to the Confederacy.  Therefore, monuments to either Michael King or soldiers of any color who fought against the Confederacy would be a violation of the purpose for which the park was created and exists. The opinions of the park’s current neighbors and opponents are of no bearing in the discussion.
Furthermore, the erection of a monument to anything other than the Confederate Cause being placed on top of Stone Mountain because of the objections of opponents of Georgia’s Confederate heritage would be akin to the state flying a Confederate battle flag atop the King Center in Atlanta against the wishes of King supporters.  Both would be altogether inappropriate and disrespectful acts, repugnant to Christian people."




They mad. They real mad!





Restoring the honor!

  1. They're simply pointing out that it's a violation of the state law making Stone Mountain a Confederate memorial. Your "hurt feelings" idiocy is a function of your hate-created hallucination and supreme disrespect for truth.

    You approve of violating the law? I'm not surprised. You showed little concern about the laws violated in the persecution of heritage folks at the D.C. rally (property destruction, intimidation, etc.). Keep it up. I love it when you heritage haters tell lies that show your true colors.

    1. I never gave an indication as to how I felt about the legality at all, but you might enjoy reading this piece which addresses it:

      If you must know, I personally think a memorial to King does not belong at the birthplace of the second era Ku Klux Klan, but it's not up to me, and I doubt that Governor Deal will consult with me on my opinion. As far as characterizing the SCV's response as "butthurt" and "hurt feelings", well, I just call them as I see them. Others have said they are "angry" and called the group "racist dolts".
