SCV RESPONSE TO GOVERNOR DEAL’S REMOVAL OF CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL DAY FROM THE STATE CALENDAR

(ATLANTA – August 7, 2015)  “Sensitivity” has become the camouflage for censorship in modern America. Current Governor Nathan Deal has moved to strip the reasons for two of Georgia’s most significant holidays without explanation. But the reason can certainly be inferred: it is the mistaken belief that as an expression of sympathy, Georgia’s history must be scrubbed in response to a criminal act in another state.      The Governor’s act is wrong on every level. In April, 1861 Abraham Lincoln mobilized […]
