Ladies and Gentlemen, the Battle of Memphis is heating up. The enemies of truth in history are lining up to take their best shot at removing the Nathan Bedford Forest statue and dig up the bodies of the General and his wife Mary. You’ve all seen it – it’s been all over the news, all over social media, all over everything and our elected “representatives” don’t seem to care that those they represent don’t want what they are selling, but they are bound and determined to shove it down our collective throats in an election year vote-grabbing power play. Let me tell you now – this fight is FAR from over, but WE NEED YOUR HELP.
This travesty is addition to the two and a half year long legal battle we have been waging against the City over their illegal attempted renaming of Memphis’s three historical Confederate themed parks – Confederate Park, Jefferson Davis Park, and of course, Nathan Bedford Forrest Park. We have put up a much better fight than ANYBODY, including our adversaries, thought we would or could.
However, while it is true that you CAN take on City Hall, and we have done a great job of it, it is expensive to do so. Governments are well funded and connected, and have the ability to just throw YOUR taxpayer dollars at any legal challenge that may come up against their decision to do what THEY want because they know what’s best for you. We’ve fought them hard and we’ve fought them well, but we must meet our legal bills.
As President of Citizens To Save Our Parks, I am asking you on behalf of our future – in the name of truth in history, of putting an end to political correctness over truth, and in the name of our forefathers and other American Veterans (Confederate Veterans by law ARE American Veterans), to help this organization continue this fight. Let’s face it – after all Confederate symbols and memorials are gone, they are coming for American military, Christian, and other symbols as well, and they’ve already started down that path. If we do not fight this fight, the ball rolls on down the hill toward other symbols that may be more important to you than a memorial to a dead general.
This is YOUR fight. NOW is the time. We CANNOT let them win. Here’s how you can help:
