SCV Uses Time Travel to Protect Confederate Monuments

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on February 27, 2016

From the usual suspects:


2012 Rally


In fact, the second image is a photo by P. Kevin Morley of the Richmond Times-Dispatch, taken at a rally held in July 2012. That rally — need it be said? — was not “the result” of the vandalism to the Jefferson Davis monument that happened in 2015. Either the SCV invented a time machine and traveled three years back into the past to protect Confederate monuments in Richmond, or somebody’s fibbin’.

Of course, if it’s the latter, it wouldn’t be the first time.

    Thank you, Andy, for the best laugh I have had all day! Those heritage people must think we are as dumb as they are.

      They tell each other BS stories constantly. I feel kind of bad making posts like this, because it’s so damned easy. It’s not like it requires hours and hours of careful archival research to debunk this stuff.
