Southerners turned out in mass to defend Effingham High School’s use of a Confederate mascot and “Dixie” as the school’s fight song. At an Effingham, Georgia High School Board meeting a mostly White crowd of 500 people booed a National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) spokesman and Left-Christian leader who demanded the school’s Southern symbols be trashed. One Southern speaker got a standing ovation from the crowd for noting that the NAACP wants to erase our heritage.
The NAACP is a leading anti-Southern extremist group which promotes far-Left, anti-White causes. Chamber-of-commerce-Republicans (such as South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush) routinely support the demands of Black Leftist groups such as the NAACP over the interests of their White Southern conservative base.
