Provided research for CNN story aboutSecretary of Veteran Affairs Robert Wilkie's neo-Confederate views

The link to the story is here.

The title is "VA secretary praised Confederate president as a "martyr to 'The Lost Cause'" in 1995 speech."

The transcript of Wilkie's speech about Jefferson Davis is online here.

The link to the Robert E. Lee article mentioned in the article is this.

Wilkie sees the ideology of the Confederacy applicable to the present. From the conclusion of the article
"We have resisted Leviathan before but this time we face an almost irrestible combination of cultural standardization; utopian multiculturalism; political exhaustion; and militant drumbeats demanding Orewellian conformity."

Alternet ran an article based on the CNN article. This is the link.

The neo-Confederates actions from 15 to 25 years ago continue to revealed in the present. I am so glad to be able to do this.
