Southern Heritage Under Attack as Arkansas Moves to Obliterate Robert E. Lee from MLK Day

Unless white dispossession is stopped soon, Washington’s name will be obliterated from states and cities, just as the name Robert E. Lee is being packed away in a box so that Negros can have their safe spaces.

Soft genocide such as this is easily escalating into calls for hard genocide. Recall the Communist professor at Drexel University who wanted white genocide for Christmas.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Every third Monday in January, Arkansas state offices are closed in observance of an unlikely holiday: the shared birthdays of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Only three states commemorate both men on the same day, a practice that critics say hurts Arkansas’ reputation. Now the Republican governor is reviving an effort to remove Lee from the holiday, but he faces resistance from opponents who complain the move belittles the state’s Confederate heritage and from black lawmakers worried about a plan to set aside another day to honor Lee.

“I think this provides our state an opportunity to bridge divides,” said Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who has vowed since early last year to make the change, which is part of his agenda for the legislative session that began last week.

Arkansas has had a holiday in honor of Lee since 1947 and one for King since 1983. That year, agencies required state employees to choose which two holidays they wanted off: King’s birthday on Jan. 15, Lee’s birthday on Jan. 19 or the employee’s birthday. In 1985, the Legislature voted to combine holidays.

Alabama and Mississippi also honor the men on the same day.

Hutchinson’s idea is not new. Two years ago, a similar proposal repeatedly failed before a House committee.

The renewed debate comes amid a nationwide re-evaluation of monuments and symbols linked to the Civil War, the Confederacy and slavery.

After the 2015 fatal shooting of nine black church members by a white gunman who had posed with the Confederate flag in photos, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the flag’s removal from the Statehouse. In Alabama, Gov. Robert Bentley took down four Confederate flags on the Capitol grounds.

Arkansas Democrats last year announced they would remove Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson’s names from the party’s annual fundraising dinner, joining a growing number of states distancing themselves from the slave-owning presidents.

As with the flag debate in other states, the King Day proposal has drawn the ire of groups that say removing Lee from the holiday is an affront to people whose ancestors served the Confederacy. In 2015, opponents regularly filled a House committee room to speak out against the idea.

“It’s like telling our Hispanic neighbors that we’re not going to do Cinco de Mayo. It’s like telling the Irish we’re not going to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day,” said Robert Edwards, commander of the Arkansas Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. “I think it’s just a racist bill.”

The idea also raised complaints from lawmakers who question why any change is needed.

“We’re looking for a solution to a problem we don’t have,” Republican Rep. Josh Miller said. “I haven’t noticed any humongous Robert E. Lee parades that are taking place in conjunction with Martin Luther King Day.”

If Robert E. Lee had been alive in 1960 I have the feeling he would have run Martin Luther King through with his broadsword, rather than kowtow to King’s demands.

Remain defiant against all efforts to bury our history and us.

Confederate General Robert E. Lee

    • Much agree, Wulife! Celebrate a good and fine gentleman with honor who always maintained his dignity, and who always supported his Southern countrymen, and was mightily loved for that. Robert E Lee still has that love and reverence because it is deserved, and that is not just by Southerners because he was honored and respected by the people of the North, too.

      This effort, if it is truly the Governor’s, marks Gov Hutchinson as either a blackhearted communist or their stooge. He will be subverted from being placed into a lucrative private or governmental position after this treachery, also.He will not be reelected unless this is shelved, and he will be on the docket to be tried when this country is finally straightened out.

      As for these “civil rights” leaders there is nothing civil about them. They have always been communists, or stooges of the jew communists. That has always been known to be the case with MLK, and with others of them. See the link below.

      [Photo caption]: Rosa Parks & journalist Nicholas Chriss in public bus. Staged photo Dec. 21, 1956, the day after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Montgomery’s segregated bus system illegal.

      Rosa Parks was not ‘a tired seemstress’, but a secretary of the NAACP with a priviliged background. The whole incident was planned.
      “The Civil Rights Movement – NAACP

      The civil rights struggles and victories of the 1950s and 1960s were Jewish-led and Jewish-financed. These weren’t run-of-the-mill Jews who created the NAACP [National Association for the Advancement of Colored People] and helped put together the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

      These were hard-core, true-blue Communist and Marxist Jews running these outfits, and under false pretenses of “racial justice” and “social justice” for all. The Jewish efforts toward black civil rights literally took a battering ram to the rights and freedoms of European-Americans.

      This was intentional, and it was done, not to benefit black Americans, but to further empower ethnocentric Jews who wanted to decrease the power of the white majority by the careful manipulating of the ever-credulous “black proletariat.”

      • Yes, everyone should know those things, I knew it before, but too bad the kids will never hear about it!

        Great photo of Lee. And he’s not even making any Masonic hand-signs, so that’s a doubly-good thing.

        As for there being no “humongous” Robert E. Lee PARADE like there is for MLK, well, whose fault is that, dumb Repub Josh Miller?! Why don’t you DECLARE one & make it official?

        Better yet, return the holiday to PRESIDENTS DAY like it was to begin with.
