Folks, following CARE Rockbridge's announcement of a peace march through Lexington, the Confederate Heritage crowd lost their shit, but now, it's not just one anti-racist group they'll have to contend with, but multiple fronts. According to a new article from the always on their game It's Going Down:
"Three “Southern Heritage” groups with white supremacist ties – ACTBAC from Alamance County, the Virginia Flaggers, and League of the South – are coordinating to organize an annual Confederate memorial service in Lexington, VA on January 14, 2017, in retaliation against the MLK Community Parade organized by CARE Rockbridge, an anti-racist organization.
ACTBAC held a rally for Trump on 11.08, has issued threats on social media against a planned mosque, held Confederate memorial rallies at UNC-Chapel Hill, and has had members show up armed at HB2 protests. They are a pro-Confederacy organization that wants to have confederate flags raised on the Interstate. They are likewise the “sister” organization of Citizens of North Carolina Against Relocation of Muslim Refugees. The Virginia Flaggers also want Confederate flags raised on the I-95, and they protested the removal of a confederate memorial in 07.15. The League of the South is an open white-supremacist and neo-confederate organization with ties to the KKK, National Socialist Movement (NSM), and the Traditionalist Worker Party. Matthew Heimbach is also a member of LotS.
We are not going to allow these organizations to march. This is a call out to all #antifa crews, affinity-groups and local chapters to mobilize and #shutitdown.
#WorkersAssemble will be organizing a caravan of #antifa/anti-racist comrades to shut down “Southern Heritage” white-supremacists. We will be assembling a caravan to leave for Lexington at 8:00AM from Durham, NC. It’s time to organize, protect one another, and #fightback. We will be coordinating our caravan with any others that are heading to Lexington."
Well, that just got interesting, now didn't it? It's not just that "Confederate Heritage" are code words for white supremacy, but also that the people who are the "leaders" in the "Confederate Heritage" movement refuse to denounce or distance themselves from those they claim not to have any association with. Why is that?
Restoring the honor!
