A spokesman for the non-profit Save Southern Heritage Florida told Big League Politics that there will be fallout from last night’s destruction of the Silent Sam statue on the campus of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.
“The righteous anger of the American people against this sacrilege is going to be felt,” said David McCallister. “We wan’t something done. We don’t want these people just to get away with it, because we know perfectly well this is not an attack on Confederate monuments this is an attack on all of America.”
McCallister characterized the statue-topplers as anti-American.
“These people don’t have any care for racism,” he said. “These people are lawless thugs and they’re bent on bringing down America in general. They’re attacking the Confederate monuments because it’s just the low-hanging fruit. It’s not the end game.”
“They’re not going to be appeased by any removal, or putting statues in museums,” he continued. “That’s not their aim. They’re using anyone that has a real concern for racism in their overall attack on America – the founding principles.”
McCallister said that last night’s events at UNC were not simply spontaneous, but well planned and organized by radical Antifa groups who brought smoke bombs and equipment for property destruction with them. He bemoaned the lack of consequences for people who have toppled other Confederate monuments.
“If something isn’t done this will continue to spread, not just in North Carolina but all around the country,” he said. “There needs to be an investigation. It needs to be on a national level as well as a state and local level, [Attorney General Jefferson B.] Sessions needs to investigate this, the FBI needs to investigate this, and bring the perpetrators to justice.
Save Southern Heritage Florida is a chapter of Save Southern Heritage, a non-profit based in South Carolina that “educates & advocates on behalf of Southern Heritage & History.”
“It was started in 2015 in response to the knee-jerk Anti-Southern institutionalized bullying and ‘eracism’ levied against the people of South Carolina by Governor Nikki Haley, after she broke all previous agreements about how South Carolina’s historical veterans and their symbols should be treated and respected,” according to the group’s Facebook page.
“Save Southern Heritage Florida has been active in defending the physical manifestations of Southern heritage, especially monuments, the names of streets, and flag displays,” McCallister told Big League Politics. “We speak to legislators and candidates and we want to have protection for Southern heritage – really American heritage.”
“These are actually monuments and memorials to American soldiers who died in defense of their home and family,” he said. “If that’s not important then we’ve lost our moral compass. We need to respect the dead.”
California’s Santa Clara County, Reportedly the Last Place in America to Prohibit Indoor Worship, Finally Lifts Ban Following Supreme Court Order
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley.
The Supreme Court issued an order on Friday that required California’s Santa Clara County to lift its prohibition on indoor religious services.
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley and the city of San Jose. It may have been the last place in the United States to maintain its indoor worship ban prior to the Supreme Court order, which came almost a full year after the in-earnest beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in America.
Bishop Oscar Cantu of San Jose said in a Friday night statement that “I join all Catholics and people of faith in Santa Clara County in expressing our satisfaction in tonight’s U.S. Supreme Court decision rejecting Santa Clara County’s ban on indoor worship services. Santa Clara was the only county in the country to continue such a ban. Banning indoor worship and yet allowing people to gather at airports, personal services establishments, and retail shopping is unconstitutional—and the Supreme Court has said so several times.”
Religious services in Santa Clara County, however, cannot take place at more than 20 percent capacity and without strict mask, social distancing, and sanitization protocols.
After hearing the South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom case, SCOTUS ruled on February 5 in favor of the former and effectively mandated that the state of California lift its ban on indoor religious services. Santa Clara County tried to maintain that the ruling didn’t apply to them because their county directives did not specifically target religious worship, but the court is evidently not buying that explanation given Friday’s order.
The decision back in 2020 to deem religious services “non-essential” was disastrous and evil from the beginning. Glad the Supreme Court has been doing its part to rectify that injustice.
