Can you imagine any Southern governor saying anything like this today?
Note: Anti-Southern elements are making much of our use of this image and quote, claiming that we conveniently left off the ending, with which most people are probably familiar: ‘and I say segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.’ To the contrary; we are well aware of the ending and have no desire to con anyone. We use this quote and the image of Governor Wallace standing in front of our flag with pride. Wallace resisted Federal tyranny, the Feds’ take-over of Southern schools, the destruction of Southern cities and neighbourhoods, the elimination of private property rights – and he strongly embraced his Southern identity. He is certainly a Southern hero worth celebrating. We used the part of the quote most relevant to our struggle today. Wallace’s words are timeless in his call for resistance to centralised tyranny.
