NAACP boss says first amendment doesn’t protect Confederate memorials
For the past few years, the NAACP has rapidly accelerated their war on Confederate symbols. They are now protesting Confederate symbols at cemeteries and museums. In South Carolina they want several entire monuments destroyed that surround the Statehouse. They even cover up a monument of George Washington, when they have their statehouse rallies.
A memorial to Confederate veterans is being constructed on private property in Orange, TX. Multiple black city council members, who are allied with the NAACP, demanded an illegal ordinance “banning” Confederate memorials on private property. Now an NAACP leader in Texas has openly called for Confederate symbols to be banned on private property. He says the first amendment should be suspended to allow for a ban on Confederate symbols.
The radical left-wing Beaumont Enterprise, and other local media, have attacked the monument and pandered to the anti-white race hatred of the NAACP.
Despite fictional claims by the Beaumont Enterprise about the community rejecting the memorial, their own online poll ended with 77% of those who responded approving of the monument.
Paul Jones, president of the Beaumont chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, questioned whether erecting a memorial that honors those who promoted and fought for the enslavement of fellow human beings is even a matter of freedom of speech and expression.
“When you try to express your opinion to dehumanize a group of people, it’s no longer a matter of freedom of speech,” Jones said Friday.
Granvel Block of Orange, commander of the statewide SVC group and the Orange camp and main force behind the project, rebuffs arguments that slavery was the cause of the Civil War. He said slave owners were scattered across the map, not just the south. He said the Confederate states fought for their sovereignty when “our states were invaded by northern troops.”
Granvel said the memorial, besides honoring Confederate veterans, will serve an educational purpose, setting the record straight on many aspects of the Confederacy’s history.
“So many things (about the Confederacy) have been taught wrong or with a poor skew,” according to written material that Davis provided.
Granvel, who also is a plaintiff in a recent free-speech case brought before the U.S. Supreme Court that argued that Texas was wrong in rejecting a specialty vehicle license plate displaying the Confederate flag, has since asked Davis to handle all questions about the Orange memorial.
