    UT/TT Poll: Most Texas Voters say Confederate memorials shouldn’t move

    You know, you can’t really get around the fact that the largest single response was that people wanted to leave them as they are. But you know we are in the South, this is an issue that has been very politically polarized and taps into a lot of political undercurrents. And they’re political undercurrents that have broken through to the surface since Donald Trump was elected. I think what’s ultimately interesting about this is that it’s hard to imagine this conversation being quite so inflammatory two, three, even five years ago as it is now. But I think the election of Donald Trump, the stream of nationalism that he’s brought…

    Austin, Texas Tourism : Texas State Cemetery in Austin: Confederate Section

    One section of the Texas State Cemetery in East Austin is dedicated to the men and women who gave their lives in the Civil War. After the Civil War the Confederates men’s and women’s home was established in Austin to care for disabled and indigent veterans. When the state took over direction of the home in nineteen ninety-one they began burying the residents here as they passed away. It was deemed the most appropriate place for these decorated soldiers. The last confederate soldier died in nineteen fifty-four at the age of one hundred and eight. There are now more than eighteen hundred soldiers and three hundred and forty-nine of their…

    Jeffery Addicott Speaks at 2013 Confederate Decoration Day, San Antonio, TX

    As we gather here today to honor our Confederate ancestors’ one question is constantly asked and continually repeated. We owe it to our dead comrades in arms – to those who did their duty to the bitter end to examine this question with the greatest of care. That question has two parts: First: Was the South wrong? And second, Did our heroes die in vain? If we answer the first, we can answer the second. In the minds of the North and the Politically Correct, the matter is not even worth analysis — the South was wrong and North won the War because the South was in the wrong. Accordingly,…

    First Amendment or Asshole? Ep. 6: Confederate Flags and Stripper Cops | We the Internet TV

    [LOU] Say you’re someone who’s into different flags, and you want a confederate flag on your vanity plate. I hear some states won’t allow you to get a confederate flag on your car. [BARRY] That’s correct. There was a recent Supreme Court decision, just last summer, where the Sons of Confederate Veterans wished to participate in this sort of designer license plate program that Texas had, and so the Sons of Confederate Veterans said, ‘we want to put the confederate flag on the license plate,’ and so now the Texas DMV is in a real pickle, because a lot of people are saying, ‘that’s very offensive, and we don’t want…
