An Open Reply / League of The South / Republican Party Education Committee

Dear Jason,

Several years back I was issued a criminal trespass citation warning from the University of Texas police as I stood with the Southern Cross giving a hand salute before the monument of the Honorable President Jefferson Davis. At that very moment I had been trying to figure out where I was going to get the funds to rejoin the League of the South. As it turned out I had to divert my funds elsewhere. The League is made up of folks who are loyal Southerners and don't give a hoot about letting anyone know this, or about their devotion and support of the policies that lead this nation to separation from the criminal policies of the North that nearly bankrupted the South . That will get you called racist. It was the League who saved my Historic March Across Dixie when we ran out of money as we headed into Gainesville, Georgia , it was it's President who came out with other of his members when we crossed into Louisiana on this very same journey to bring my brother and I not only more monetary support, but also encouragement to continue on with the acknowledgement that this organization would be there for us all the way to Texas as we carried a message of the loyalty, and a place of honor and dignity earned by those Africans who stood by their Southern family in the great American tragedy called the War Between the States. I have found racism in far more places than in the rhetoric of the League or its members who have the courage to tell truths that others think, but are too afraid to speak because it puts into jeopardy their comfortable places and bank accounts. Otherwise , how can you explain to me how any White man of the South, let alone a Black one , feel comfortable at a Republican Party function with an Abraham Lincoln impersonator parading around and claiming this Party to be the Party of Lincoln ; how can you explain to me how the mayor of this town can have a committee made up of Southern war veterans whose charge it is to present a program for Veterans Day, and they put the Battle Hymn of the Republic on the program which is a testimony of the Southern soldiers and innocent civilians murdered in the War Between the States, how can you explain to me how a prominent Southerner raise funds for Rudy after he gave his speech in Yankee stadium touting the accomplishments of the people of the North, and one of them being coming to the South to free the slaves, how can you explain to me people of the South and this Party in the South raising millions and embracing John McCain who led the way to stop Memorial Services in the National Park for Confederate Soldiers if the Southern Cross is present ? So much for the League.

I spend far too much time on the national scene trying to stop the social and cultural genocide of my southland and the criminal activities of those who hate all things Southern and will stop at nothing to accomplish their agenda as they force my babies to remember their Southern ancestors in shame, especially in the public school system that was established here in the Southland in 1865 to accomplish those ends as well as to divide and separate Southern Blacks and Southern Whites. In complete fairness to the Party and to our President and committee that selected me to head this Education Committee ; I don't think you really know what you ask of me , and are ready to accept what you will get. This nation spent far too much time inculcating into the thinking process of her people an agenda of divide. It now has a new slave illegal immigrants), who have access to all the perks earned by the American people ; they vote , hold credit cards, have access to medical treatment, housing, and just about anything else you can think of that is suppose to be held for those who are citizen. Now you just think about just how many of our Yankee friends are going to stick around when I require first that they all read a copy of Mike Scruggs Un-Civil War, and then pass them out to all those voters you want in this Party. Until we understand history ,we cannot change the things that are. This war is the reference place to all things happening around us and our supposed Constitution now. You can reach me at either(828) 273-1991 ) and some mornings if I'm in town at : (828)669-5189. I look forward to the first committee meeting, and to explain my thoughts on it's charge.

HK, it was good seeing you at the meeting last night. I have forwarded this email to some folks that needed to see it as well. I have several questions that I wanted to ask of you as I think you have a very interesting background.

Are you or have you been active with the league of the south? Are they a racist organization like some people say they are or are they misunderstood by many people?

Are you fairly active with the local Republicans and will you be putting together that committee that you spoke about last night?

Do you have a direct office number where I might be able to reach you?

I am quite interested in many of the issues you fight for and want to learn more about what I might can do to help. Thanks.
