Alabama Governor Signs Historic Legislation to Protect Confederate Monuments and Memorials
Earlier this evening, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed SB 60 INTO LAW!
Thanks to all of you who contacted the Governor's office, and a special thanks to all those who had a part in making this possible. Please take a moment and contact Governor Ivey and THANK HER for her courageous leadership in signing this historic legislation.
Alabama now joins Virginia, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina in states with active legislation to protect our monuments and memorials.
The destruction of historic memorials in New Orleans by Mayor Mitch Landrieu over the past few weeks has seemingly awakened a sleeping giant and spurred citizens across the country to stand up and fight back, and likely helped to facilitate the last minute passage of this bill in the Alabama legislature.
Poll after poll shows that citizens are overwhelmingly against the destruction of historic monuments and memorials. The disturbing images from New Orleans, the increasing violence on the part of the monument haters, and the seemingly non-stop attempts to divide and disrupt our communities with divisive rhetoric and false narratives have helped fuel a growing pushback by American citizens.
Congratulations! God bless the good folks of Alabama...and GOD SAVE THE SOUTH!
