My friend HK Edgerton has said for years” White People don’t know how to Civil rights fight! He is sadly correct. But we need to learn and learn quickly while putting more boots on the ground – not less. When the thugs showed up with their bongo drums the good guys could have shut them down with an organized chant – like the one I suggested based on on John Lennon’s anti Vietnam war chant: all we are saying, is give Lee (instead of “peace”) a chance! Chanted over & over again. If all the good guys chanted and clapped in unison it would have shut down the drum celebration while mocking the Left with a variant of their own chant. Either no one got the message or no one thought the advice was good enough to follow – so the thugs & punks got to be in our faces at Lee Circle and exult with their percussion.
We have to do more for the monuments – we need more boots on the ground, we need to reexamine and rethink strategies and we need leadership to take charge of these events and add discipline, direction and focus to make them more effective.
This is not to take anything away from the heroic patriots who have been on the ground doing the Lord’s work in New Orleans and other hot spots. God bless you for your unselfish devotion in fulfilling the Charge of Stephen D. Lee. Now how about the rest of y’all?
