Commander’s Corner

Press Release from VA Division Heritage Defense Coordinator

Who is really at fault for the violence in Charlottesville?

Is it the extremist on the right? Is it the extremist on the left?  No, it is the Mayor and the City Council who are at the root of the problem.  None of this should have ever happened.  They created a problem where there was no problem.  They are guilty of the proverbial act of yelling "fire" in a crowded theater when there is no fire.  

No harm came from the General Robert E Lee monument.  No harm has ever come from any monument. 

The needless actions of the elected officials of Charlottesville have lead to "blood in the streets."  Now, at least one or more persons have died because of their actions.  It does not matter which side they were on, they may have even been law enforcement.  This was an unnecessary waste of  human life. 

Indeed, arrest should be made.  The Mayor and the City Council of Charlottesville should be charged with insight to riot and manslaughter.    It was their decision to violate Virginia Law that caused the chaos we have all now witnessed. 

Richmond is about to follow Charlottesville down this misguided path.  Other cities have  avoided this all together.  They either never broached the subject or quickly voted it down.  No violence, no riots, no injuries.

Much of this blame can also be laid at the feet of Governor McAuliffe.  NOW,  he calls for a state of emergency!  None of this would have been necessary had he not vetoed Del. Poindexter's bill to strengthen the already existing Monuments Protection Act.  He claimed this bill would end further discussion.  What it would have ended was all of this unnecessary violence. 

Let it be known that the Virginia Division Sons of Confederate Veterans in no way  condones the actions of either the white or black racist extremists.  Persons with political motivations have caused these people to usurp the symbols of our Heritage. 

The law to protect all War Monuments is already on the books.  Let us follow the Law and put and end to all this.

B Frank Earnest, Heritage Defense Coordinator on behave of The Virginia Division Sons of Confederate Veterans
