NC Senators Betray Veterans

On January 1, 2021, both North Carolina Senators, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, voted for H.R. 6395 to override the President's veto of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, betraying those veterans who gave their all in defense of their state.

Included in Bill H.R. 6395, was section 370.

Sec. 370. Commission on the naming of items of the Department of Defense that commemorate the Confederate States of America or any person who served voluntarily with the Confederate States of America.

Full text of the bill, https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/6395/text

On July 23, 2020, they also voted for S.4049 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, which included the same section text, as section 377.

Senator James M. Inhofe (R-OK), who serves as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, had previously told the President, "We’re going to see to it that provision doesn’t survive the bill.". That proved to be a lie. While Senator Inhofe had the ability to have this excluded from the senate bill, he did not.

To quote Gene Kizer, Jr., "They Are WOKE But Soon Will Be Irrelevant".1

Let's not forget the North Carolina House Representatives. Here is how they voted on bill H.R. 6395.

Representative Party District Vote
Alma S. Adams Democrat 12th Yea
Dan Bishop Republican 9th Nay
Ted Budd Republican 13th Nay 
G. K. Butterfield Democrat 1st Yea
Virginia Foxx Republican 5th Yea

Richard Hudson Republican 8th Yea
Patrick T. McHenry Republican 10th Yea
Gregory F. Murphy Republican 3rd Yea
David E. Price Democrat 4th Yea

I know politicians count on the short memory of their constituents when it comes to future elections, but rest assured I will be providing reminders of their voting records prior to the elections in November, 2022.

North Carolina SCV Press Release

June 28, 2020 - Press Release

June 23, 2020

Communication to local municipalities and government units:

It has come to our attention that you are considering the removal of the monument in your municipality/county honoring North Carolinians who fought and died for this state and for the Confederate States of America during the American War Between the States.

After consulting with legal counsel, we wish to remind you that under North Carolina law, specifically, under Chapter 100 of the North Carolina General Statutes, related to “Monuments, Memorials and Parks[,]” which is commonly referred to as the Heritage Protection Act or the “HPA,” it is unlawful to remove Confederate monuments (or any object which includes monuments) from public spaces. In short, a local government must follow the requirements of this law and keep the Confederate monuments currently where they are, with very limited ex-ceptions.

As you are aware, on July 23, 2015, the General Assembly, with overwhelming bi-partisan support and with almost no objection, enacted the Cultural History Artifact Management and Patriotism Act of 2015. (See 2015 North Carolina Laws S.L. 2015-170 (S.B. 22)). As is relevant here, the substantive provision of the Act is codified as N.C. Gen. Stat. § 100-2.1, and places clear restrictions on the removal and relocation of statues and memorials located on public lands. In its entirety, the Statute provides as follows:

(a) Approval Required. – Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b) of this section, a monument, memorial, or work of art owned by the State may not be removed, relocated, or altered in any way without the approval of the North Carolina Historical Commission.

Quotes

We feel that our cause is just and holy; we protest solemnly in the face of mankind that we desire peace at any sacrifice save that of honour and independence; we ask no conquest, no aggrandizement, no concession of any kind from the States with which we were lately confederated; all we ask is to be let alone; that those who never held power over us shall not now attempt our subjugation by arms.

PresidentJeffersonDavis 75President Jefferson Davis

All that the South has ever desired was that the Union as established by our forefathers should be preserved and that the government as originally organized should be administered in purity and truth.

RobertELee 75pxGeneral Robert E. Lee

As for the South, it is enough to say that perhaps eighty per cent. of her armies were neither slave-holders, nor had the remotest interest in the institution. No other proof, however, is needed than the undeniable fact that at any period of the war from its beginning to near its close the South could have saved slavery by simply laying down its arms and returning to the Union.

John B Gordon 75pxMajor General John B. Gordon

If you bring these [Confederate] leaders to trial it will condemn the North, for by the Constitution secession is not rebellion. Lincoln wanted Davis to escape, and he was right. His capture was a mistake. His trial will be a greater one.

Salmon P. Chase 75pxChief Justice Salmon P. Chase, July 1867

Sirs, you have no reason to be ashamed of your Confederate dead; see to it they have no reason to be ashamed of you.

The Abbeville Institute

abbeville institute logo

The Abbeville Institute was founded in 2002 by a group of scholars in history, literature, philosophy, religion, and other disciplines who conducted a conference on “Modernity and the Southern Tradition” at the University of Virginia. We were concerned that the Southern tradition is no longer taught in colleges and universities except as a function of the ideological needs of others. With few exceptions, the Southern tradition is presented as little more than the story of racism and slavery.

The Institute was formed as a response to this intellectual challenge. Its purpose is to critically explore what is true and valuable in the Southern tradition. To this end, we hold summer schools for college and graduate students as well as conferences for academics at colleges and universities. We also conduct educational conferences for the public.

A Supplemental Booklet by 16 Writers that Enables A More Complete and Truthful Study of American History (Middle School, High School, College and Beyond)

This Supplemental History Study Booklet has been organized and written by sixteen Society members as a gift to young and older Americans seeking a truthful, realistic and deep understanding of the War Between the States, including the 1850s political sectionalism within the Northern States that gave rise to their Republican Party, the resulting Secession of many Southern States, and the brutal, four-year war campaign by President Lincoln and Republican Governors to conquer Seceded States, force them back under the Federal Government and impose Political Reconstruction on everyone.

The booklet can be downloaded for free, read online or a version can be purchased at Amazon in a printed version or e-book version.

Understanding “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”
By Howard Ray White (July 18, 2014)

In the mid-1800’s women were not to be leaders in politics and religion, but Harriet Beecher Stowe and Julia Ward Howe did just that. Of Harriet, daughter of Lyman Beecher and sister of Henry Ward Beecher, both influential Abolitionists/ministers/educators, Sinclair Lewis would write: “Uncle Tom’s Cabin was the first evidence to America that no hurricane can be so disastrous to a country as a ruthlessly humanitarian woman.” The same could be equally said of Julia, a close friend of Charles Sumner and, wife of Boston Abolitionist leader Samuel Howe, one of the “Secret Six” financial supporters of the notorious John Brown...
