Ole Miss and race.

I think that it is important at every opportunity to counter a flagrant lie by John Bachelor and a guest author -- it had to be deliberate because even the New York Times acknowledged the truth about Edwin A. Walker (Maj. Gen. U.S. Army). Both men stated that Walker led violent attacks at the University of Mississippi protesting James Meredith. THAT IS A LIE! No response of course to my email to Bachelor that included references to the court case.

"In 1967, the Supreme Court threw out a $500,000 libel judgment [Walker] had won against The Associated Press after the news agency reported that he had "led a charge of students against Federal marshals" deployed at the university to guard Mr. Meredith. The Court said public figures were the same as public officials and therefore the media deserved protection for mistakes made without malice."

BTW "On April 10, 1963, a sniper fired at him as he sat at his desk in his home. The bullet missed his head by about an inch." Lee Harvey Oswald was the shooter.

"Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker, whose right-wing political activities led to an official rebuke [by the Kennedy brothers JFK & RFK] and his resignation from the Army in 1961 , . . General Walker, a lanky, much-decorated Texan who led combat units in World War II and the Korean War, ended his 30-year Army career [in 1961] because, he said, he 'could no longer serve in uniform and be a collaborator with the release of United States sovereignty to the United Nations.'"

All quotes are from the NY Times "Gen. Edwin Walker, 83, Is Dead; Promoted Rightist Causes in 60's"

Given the state of affairs today.. I also point out that Attorney General RFK had conservative activist Walker taken into custody and held for mental examination. IIRC even the ACLU helped free Walker within a day or two. And all that was without the powers that the pukes in Washington have today.

More on Major General Edwin Anderson Walker. Even way back in 1962 Walker called out the "anti-Christ Supreme Court and a president using troops against Americans.

Though he had followed orders to compel the desegregation of Central High School in Little Rock, Walker organized protests in September 1962 against the use of Federal troops to enforce the enrollment of African-American James Meredith at the racially-segregated University of Mississippi at Oxford, Mississippi. On September 26, 1962, Walker went on several radio stations to broadcast this message:

Mississippi: It is time to move. We have talked, listened and been pushed around far too much by the anti-Christ Supreme Court! Rise...to a stand beside Governor Ross Barnett at Jackson, Mississippi! Now is the time to be heard! Thousands strong from every State in the Union! Rally to the cause of freedom! The Battle Cry of the Republic! Barnett yes! Castro no! Bring your flag, your tent and your skillet. It's now or never! The time is when the President of the United States commits or uses any troops, Federal or State, in Mississippi! The last time in such a situation I was on the wrong side. That was in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957-1958. This time -- out of uniform -- I am on the right side! I will be there! [13]

This is his televised public statement on September 29, 1962:

This is Edwin A. Walker. I am in Mississippi beside Governor Ross Barnett. I call for a national protest against the conspiracy from within. Rally to the cause of freedom in righteous indignation, violent vocal protest, and bitter silence under the flag of Mississippi at the use of Federal troops. This today is a disgrace to the nation in 'dire peril,' a disgrace beyond the capacity of anyone except its enemies. This is the conspiracy of the crucifixion by anti-Christ conspirators of the Supreme Court in their denial of prayer and their betrayal of a nation.[14] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwin_A._Walker
