John Dolva Posted January 15, 2006 Share Posted January 15, 2006 july 22 1963 A five point action program An address by Louis W. Hollis Executive Director, Citizens' Councils of America "..the CCA, the only nation-wide organisation dedicated to the preservation of the integrity of the white race....we will NEVER surrender." "...no responsible person WANTS violence. It is an unpleasant remedy to which people resort only in a desperate extremity, when all else has failed. ...the position of CCA..: to prevent vilence by preventing integration. But, there is a point beyond which even the most judicious restraint becomes cowardice. To say there will be no violence under any circumstances whatsoever, is like President Kennedy's assuring Kruschev that the US will not invade Cuba. These 'moderates', who have never resisted integration in the first place, now merely encourage the NAACP and other 'race mixers' to redouble their efforts....a moderate is for segregation, but he is chicken!" "Certainly we in our state would never take up arms against our country, be it right or wrong...in this instance we believe it is grievously wrong. Our remedy lie/s in another means. And here I come to the price the Kennedy's will pay for their actions." "the Kennedy's have inpaled themselves by this invasion of the south... The south will never go for those Kennedy's again becouase everybody knows that a vote for Kennedy is a vote for..integration at the point of a bayonet. We know racial integrity is essential to civilisation and liberty" "..ask..: What can we do?" "...tonight, we are coming to you with a plan...for Citicen' Council organisations. Yoy will hear much about this plan in the days and weeks ahead..." " The good sense of the people in other parts of the country will assert itself and the politicians who are primarily responsible for injecting the element of danger into this will be eliminated from office." "...This is a fight to maintain Racial Integrity..." "Tough minded...Arm yourself with truth as a weapon...pride of race...the truth will make you free" "It is no longer a question of bad government. It is a question of impossible government. Only strong aggressive organisation will deliver us..." "Hear me, men and women of my race, the hour is struck when we must rise in our might, strike down the traitors and scalawags who would be the ruling power (JFK?) in our country..." "We have a constitution because our pioneer fathers who cleared the wilderness and dared the might of kings (MLK?) were FREE MEN...if you can make men out of paper, then it is possible with a scratch of a pen in the hands of a tyrannical judge (Warren?) or a vicious attorney general (Bobby?), to transform by its magic 18 million blacks into 18 million kings." "..self restraint under the terrible provocations of the last nine years (IOW since Warrens brown ruling) But there is a limit..for at this point (july 1963) self restraint is cowardice.." "(We)..are now engaged in a mortal conflict, and only one can survive." "..where integration occurs violence becomes inevitable.." ... "Join with those who will stand...fearlessly...detrmined..that segregation will be maintained." I'd say that Hollis would be pleased by the outcome 123 days later on 12.30 11/22/1963 http://www.mdah.state.ms.us/arlib/contents...|2|1|1|1|60336| Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
