The South shall rise

Posted By on Fri, Mar 5, 2010 at 12:40 PM

Filing continues. Alas, Mike Ross is in. Robbie Wills officially joined the 2nd District race. (He's for jobs. Me, too.) Gov. Mike Beebe is in. Etc.

But there was at least one item of passing interest. Loy Mauch of Bismarck filed  for House District 26, as a Republican. (If only the CSA had a party.) 

Regular readers of the D-G letters page (those with strong stomachs, in other words) know the name. There was his protest, along with his Sons of the Confederate Veteran chapter, over a statute of Abraham Lincoln on display at the Hot Springs Convention Center. There's his veneration of the Confederate battle flag, as evidenced when James Vandiver lowered the D.C. flag and raised the Dixie banner over his motel.

For Loy Mauch of Bismarck in Hot Spring County, the Confederate flag is a symbol of America’s Christian roots, from which he believes the nation has strayed.
“The government has lost its moral authority over God-fearing Americans and I wish more patriots like James Vandiver would take their stand for what the Confederate Battle Flag truly symbolizes,” Mauch wrote.

David O. Dodd, reinforcements are on the way.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
