The Alt-Right Defends Southern Heritage in Charlottesville
It makes sense when you think about it. As Richard Spencer has repeatedly said, the Alt-Right is about identity. These Confederate monuments are expressions of Southern identity. They were erected by the sons and grandsons of the Confederate generation and were put in prominent public spaces in the South as a tribute to the sacrifices of our fathers in the War Between the States.
The removal of Confederate statues & monuments constitutes the vile desecration of White European collective memory. #RedIceLive— Red Ice TV (@redicetv) May 13, 2017
Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson are Southern heroes. 1 out of every 4 Southern White men died in the War Between the States. 1 out of every 3 were maimed or killed. The horrific toll of that war has no parallel in our history. It’s not like there are only Confederate monuments in the South. There are Union monuments in the North which were erected for the same reasons.
Slavery is used ahistorically as a weapon to justify the displacement & dispossession of White European people #RedIceLive— Red Ice TV (@redicetv) May 13, 2017
Those monuments were built as an act of love. They are about us, our identity and how we remember our ancestors. The people who want to destroy those monuments to our dead also want to destroy and replace us, their living descendants, and make life miserable here for future generations. It’s not about the Confederacy. The same communist logic will eventually be used to destroy Union monuments.
