The liberal website Politico sent self-hating Southern reporter John Savage to east Texas to cover the story about the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ (SCV) efforts to build the largest Confederate memorial in a century. This is a case of not merely defending Southern heritage but advancing despite declining demographics and open hostility from Black Live Matter terrorists and other Leftist groups. Predictably, Savage ridiculed the men he was sent to report on as “an aging army of deeply religious, federal government distrusting, neo-Confederate true believers.” The Politico journalist then devotes several paragraphs attacking their beliefs. This is the sort of treatment loyal Southerners have come to expect from the loathsome US media. But it is still refreshing to see a group of Southerners on the offense, advancing in the public sphere.
