Things Are Looking Up In Selma, Alabama
by Al Benson Jr.
Back in September of 2012 I wrote two or three articles about a situation in Selma, Alabama where black domestic terrorists were trying to prevent a bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest from being put up in Live Oak Cemetery in an area called Confederate Circle. There was a big fuss over who owned the land in Confederate Circle. The United Daughters of the Confederacy noted the land had been deeded to them back in the 1880s, although there seemed to be a problem locating a copy of the deed. The local black civil rights terrorists refused to believe this and so trespassed on what would later, by court order, be deemed as the property of the UDC and they just flat out stopped the construction work, threatening to call in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, who would, naturally, conduct a big march and demonstration which would be geared to stop any future work on the Forrest monument--with the "news" media naturally playing right along with them as they usually do.
The local UDC folks, no doubt having been labeled with the favorite Trotskyite term "racist" were all supposed to silently submit to the racial blackmail and retreat in silence.
It didn't quite work that way. The company that was doing the work on the monument, KTK Mining and the UDC took it to court and sued the City of Selma for refusing to protect their rights. Even though it's been well over a year now (so much for speedy trials) the City of Selma must, somewhere along the line, have realized that if it went to trial they would not win, and so they accepted a settlement put forth by KTK Mining for $100,000.
According to http://www.selmatimesjournal.com for November 26, 2013 we are told: "In a 5-3 vote, the Selma City Council voted to approve a settlement in a lawsuit over a monument to Confederate general and former Ku Klux Klan leader Nathan Bedford Forrect, effectively ending the suit.The settlement terms include giving a deed to the one-acre tract of land containing the monument in Old Live Oak Cemetery to Chapter 53 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy." The council president voted in favor of this, along with four other members and said it was time for the city to move forward and focus on more important issues.
However, that decision was not enough for the local civil rights terrorists, one of which, Rose Sanders, also known as Faya Rose Toure, (interesting how these black radicals, like Obama, always seem to have more than one name) managed to get herself arrested for disorderly conduct at the city council meeting. But then, this is so typical of leftist radicals. If they can't get their way they attempt to disrupt everything so that nothing can be accomplished unless everyone is willing to give in to their radical agenda. This time it didn't work. That must have been a real blow to the fragile ego of Ms. Sanders/Toure. Shouting everyone down has always worked before--this time it didn't. How sad--for her, not for the rest of the folks there.
Even though KTK Mining has the right to go on with finishing construction of the Forrest Monument, I expect there will be all manner of nit-picky things the domestic terrorists will come up with to hamper the work and if nothing else works they will resort to outright vandalism. It wouldn't be the first time.
But, for now, things are looking up in Selma. The defenders of the Confederacy finally won one, which is welcome news, because, lets face it folks, between the government, the "news" media and the dedicated leftists of various hues, we don't win too many. Thank the Lord for this victory--and strive to remain vigilant because the battle is probably not over yet.
