We Don’t Need No Politically Incorrect Flags In Our Politically Correct Christmas Parade In Natchitoches

by Al Benson Jr.

Every year for the past twenty years the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) has had a sizable contingent in the annual Christmas Parade in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Parade goers looked forward to seeing them there. They were among the most popular groups in the parade with their flags fluttering in the breeze.

Not this year, however. It seems that the “god” of political correctness has prevailed in Natchitoches and no Confederate flags will be allowed in this year’s parade. Whoever thought they’d live to see such a thing in deep south Louisiana?

SCV Louisiana Division Commander Thomas Taylor has stated that: “As most, if not all of you are aware the Sons of Confederate Veterans has been excluded from the Natchitoches Christmas Parade to be held on December 5th. This was perpetrated with a time frame that keeps us from legally doing anything about it this year.” How like the politically correct cultural Marxists to do it in such a way that their opposition had no chance to respond in time to address their legitimate grievance. As you deal more and more with “those people” you come to learn not to expect anything in the way of fairness or tolerance from them, contrary to all their claims of “tolerance and diversity.” It’s all a shameless sham to shut down those they disagree with.

Commander Taylor continued: “This is not to say we won’t be in Natchitoches  on December 5th so mark your calendars and plan to be there in protest. The details of our protest will be released…when the final aspects are worked out. We will need you there.

The information I received stated: “Information from the LA Division SCV due to the Mayor of Natchitoches refusing to allow the SCV to march in the Christmas Parade as it has done for decades unless the SCV agreed to march without the Flags of the Confederacy is as follows. The committe organizing the parade has agreed to support the Mayor in this act of politically correct exclusion. It’s time to fight back! The LA SCV will dig in and fight against this Marxist move by the Natchitoches city government. But we need your help!  Please share this information on Facebook, with your camps and your friends. We call upon all good Southerners to take to the trenches of the Social Media Battlefield. It is time for the true voices of the South to be heard. We would like to make clear that the members of the Historic District Business Association nor the business owners on Front Street were contacted when the Mayor made his decision. They are outraged over the city’s position and support the SCV being in the Christmas Parade.”

“The following are the ‘Big Three’ who are ‘goose stepping’ to the drums of cultural cleansing in Natchitoches. Contact them and let them hear the voices of the real people: Lee Waskom festival@natchitoches.com  Lee Posey–Mayor lposey@natchitochesla.gov  318-352-2772 Office, Fred Terasa fnt888@hotmail.com  It goes without saying that people need to be civil in their communications and to refrain from all profanity, name-calling, etc. Concerned patriots are also urged to “message” their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/CityOfNatchitoches

It’s interesting to note that the Mayor might have been willing to let the SCV march–without their flags! In place of their flags what did he expect them to carry–deep pink banners that said “I want to teach the world to sing”? Also interesting is the fact that the town of Many, Louisiana has contacted the SCV to let them know they will not be taking part in the Natchitoches Parade in support of the SCV, and that the town of Many has also invited the SCV to be in their Christmas Parade on December 12th.

You have to wonder what made the Mayor of Natchitoches  suddenly come up with the idea of eliminating Confederate flags from his town’s parade. Did a handful of “concerned citizens” visit his office and complain–and if so,  were they perchance members of the NAACP?

Inquiring minds would like to know.

  1. ‘banners that said “I want to teach the world to sing”? ‘
    If they matched with a large band and sung Dixie through the whole parade, this might not be too bad!

    The time is coming, if it isn’t already here, for Southerners to begin having their own parallel cultural events. Why not an SCV Thanksgiving Day Parade? They would have to be willing to actually stand up to BLM and any other group that tried to stir up trouble, even to the point of violence. Don’t start the fight but be sure to end it.

  2. I think its time the SUV starts bringing lawsuits against cities and states and whomever else is trying to restrict us. At the very least it should be protected as free speech. The supreme court has ruled your allowed to burn the US flag in protest. People are allowed to wear offensive words on clothing as free speech. gays are not allowed to be excluded from parades, even Christian extremists need to be allowed to counter protest Halloween parades. cities cant even restrict organizations like the KKK from holding a rally in their town. why cant the CS flag be protected against these uniformed lunatics who are just pandering for votes to the political correctness group, as a symbol of free speech. the idea of free speech is no one else has to agree with it. The flag was NEVER meant nor used as symbol of racial hatred, until after the Civil War when it was adopted by white supremists. the Confederacy was an ideology on how to run our country. states rights over a more powerful federal government. showing the flag as part of anything Civil war related is free speech at its highest because the entire war was an issue of we don’t agree with the way the union of states is being run.
