LAWSUIT TO EXPOSE DEEP DIVISIONS IN “HERITAGE” MOVEMENT

|| By FITSNEWS || A bitter battle is brewing within the ranks of South Carolina’s “heritage” community in the aftermath of this month’s Confederate flag saga.

Sources tell FITS one of the top financiers of the neo-Confederate movement in the Palmetto State is filing a lawsuit against leaders of the South Carolina division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCSCV).

Details of the suit – initiated by Upstate flag supporter Richard Hines – haven’t been revealed at this point, although we’re told it centers on allegations of misappropriated funding.

We’re also told a demand letter related to the suit was served on SCSCV leaders during an organizational meeting Monday evening in the rural town of Hilda, S.C.

The SCSCV – and the broader “heritage” community – has been deeply divided following last month’s gruesome, racially motivated “Holy City Massacre” – the mass murder of nine black churchgoers at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C.  The Mother Emanuel victims – including S.C. Senator Clementa Pinckney, the church’s pastor – were gunned down during a Bible study by Dylann Storm Roof, a 21-year-old white supremacist who used the Confederate flag as his calling card.

In the ensuing debate over the Confederate flag’s presence on the grounds of the S.C. State House, certain SCSCV leaders negotiated in secret with S.C. Senate president Hugh Leatherman and other state leaders – looking to turn their acquiescence on the flag’s high-profile location into taxpayer cash for other Confederate-related projects.

Among those projects?  A proposed secession monument the group has been working on for years.

This website reported exclusively on those negotiations – which ultimately fell apart when rank-and-file members of the SCSCV learned of the terms of the deal.

Stay tuned for much more on this lawsuit …

Speaking of gruesome did you hear about the black motorcyclist, just out of prison after serving a 14 month prison stint for theft by fiduciary, that yanked a CFB off the truck in Georgia? He was subsequently run over by the driver of the truck and died from internal trauma. One eyewitness said, “I’ve never seen anything so gruesome in my life.” We will probably see more cases like this if these clown continue to play stupid games.

I heard there was no violence last weekend. Is that true? Are these videos on line fakes?

That is correct. If you say there was violence, you are a liar.

Black people are incapable of violence.
