Confederate Catfight: South Carolina Secessionist Party vs. The South Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans

These are some pretty strong accusations being made here. Potentially libelous if untrue. Via FITS NEWS:




"One Southern heritage group in the Palmetto State is challenging another over its ongoing campaign to erect a monument to the South Carolina signers of the 1860 Ordinance of Secession.
It’s a “Civil War,” if you will.
According to the S.C. Secessionist Party, the proposed monument – which is being pushed by the South Carolina division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCSCV) – represents “a case of good intentions being warped by bad leadership.”
“No formal budget was put into place at the initiation of this project (which) has come to cost far more than originally expected,” party leaders claim.
The SCSCV has been pushing for years to erect a “Secession Monument” somewhere in South Carolina – although its efforts to locate the monument in Charleston, North Charleston and (most recently) Mount Pleasant, S.C. have all been rebuffed.
The SCSCV’s plan is to erect an 11.5-foot statue at the center of a 40-foot-by-40-foot plaza modeled after the “Southern Cross.”  In fact the establishment of this monument has been at the heart of the group’s fundraising efforts for the better part of the last decade.
According to the Secessionist Party, though, the whole thing has become little more than a Ponzi scheme.
“The SCSCV continues to raise money for this monument without any indication of advancing the project,” party leaders stated.
“So far all that appears to have happened is an estimated $300,000 has been raised and spent on advertising for additional donations and the construction of a 20 ton monument with no where to put it,” a fact sheet from the organization noted.
The party also claims it was recently provided a copy of the SCSCV’s most recent tax return, and that “there appears to be no accounting of the money for the monument.”"

I have an email in to the South Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans for comment. I'd email the South Carolina Secessionist Party as well, but they are apparently afraid of me and told me never to contact them again.

Restoring the honor!

    1. Why is that any of your business Connie? Don't you have 3 or 4 blog of your own to worry about?

    2. Strange, did you say the same thing to FITS NEWS?

    3. This is reminiscent of a Tripp Lewis-esque tantrum.

      I think there is a lot of jealousy in the Heritage movement over who is better at bilking folks.

    4. Oh Connie is notorious for telling other people to mind their business, but she never tells her racist friends at the Virginia Flagger to mind their business when they are going to other cities and planting flags all over the place because they failed to change hearts and minds.

    5. If you don't like it, why are you here?
