Follow up to the stories written about Selma City Council President Cecil Williamson Attending the Birthday Celebration/Rally Honoring KKK Founder Nathan Bedford Forrest.
Williamson, "former member" of hate group League of the South, speaking at the event
The South and its heritage is the only thing restraining the liberals, multiculturalists and the politically correct from completely eradicating the values and principles upon which this nation was founded," Williamson wrote in a 2000 essay titled "The Real Reason Our Heritage Is Attacked."
Let it be said that a picture speaks 1,000 words once again and in this case we should say more. Interesting that the Selma Times Journal would not publish these pictures. They did however allow Williamson the opportunity to pontificate on his neo-Confederacy views in this YouTube video which we posted yesterday
Williamson said of the celebration
It's a good time had by all . . . it's free but we do accept contributions because we want to build a confederate park . . .
Williamson also said about the racist characterization picture of the child eating the watermelon
"It's a 1922 art deco piece. I"m not offended by it. History is what it is . . . "
If the Selma Times Journal was engaged in real journalism they would have written this story in one article. They would have posted pictures for the world to see. Instead, we had to engage in alternative journalism to write the rest of the story. Had the pictures been published along with some of the other information, the people themselves would have been able to make their own decision.
