MLK Jr. Day Special: Alt-Right Visits Selma To Lampoon ‘Civil Rights Icon’ John Lewis

By Hunter Wallace

I went back to Selma this morning to finish what I set out to do yesterday:

Montgomery

I started in Montgomery where John Lewis led the Selma-To-Montgomery March through the west side of town to the Alabama State Capitol. I’ve found the photo of civil rights marchers urinating on command. Fake news isn’t limited to journalists. It includes historians who have sanitized the Civil Rights Movement:

I visited the Freedom Rides Civil Rights Museum in 2011:

In 2011, I documented these billboards existed on the Selma-To-Montgomery National Historic Trail here, here and here:

Lowndes County

The bulk of the Selma-To-Montgomery March took place in Lowndes County, AL.

As I noted in the previous article, there is nothing left of Lowndes County. It has been rewilding since blacks seized power in the 1970s. All that is left is a few bingo halls and some blighted buildings. John Lewis’s marching was more devastating to the local economy than Sherman’s March To the Sea. The National Park Service has built an Interpretative Center to explain why John Lewis is a ‘civil rights icon’.

Ruins of Selma

When I first started documenting the Ruins of Selma in 2011, the Welcome to Selma sign hadn’t yet been destroyed:

In 2011, this blighted building was still standing. I snapped a photo of a blighted Japanese restaurant which has since been torn down.

The Selma Mall appears to be on its last legs. Do you think it will make it to 2020?

The demise of the Rite-Aid in Selma appears to be a recent development:

This creepy building is one of the reasons I had to come back to Selma. It reminds me of Negan’s headquarters, the Sanctuary, from AMC’s The Walking Dead. Except The Sanctuary still has windows in the zombie apocalypse:

Last night, I saw a bunch of Orthodox Jews walking through Selma. That struck me as strange. I’ve never seen that many Jews in Selma before. It turns out a group of 100 Orthodox Jews from Washington were in Selma to visit the 7 Jews still left in the city. The Jewish community in Selma is nearly extinct in 2017.

This is why ‘Bloody Sunday’ happened in the first place. The White people of Selma were defending their town from John Lewis’s marching and trying to stop him from destroying the local economy:

It made me sick to drive around Selma’s Historic District and see this:

Selma Billboards

In 2011, I snapped photos of an STD billboard and the hilarious “I am Powerful” billboard in Selma.

Minnie B. Anderson Homes

The ruins of Craig Air Force Base in Selma have become a war zone.

Amazingly, there are people who live in the Minnie B. Anderson homes in these conditions. This is where President Obama landed in Selma to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act:

Shrines

John Lewis has his own weird shrine at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge:

Selma Is Violent

In 2015, Selma was the fourth most dangerous city in Alabama with the third highest number of murders per capita and the fourth highest number of property crimes. When I visited Selma on Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend, the headline in the local newspaper was that another body had been found:

Black Fictional Images

SBDPL.com reported that the Walton Theater was reopened for the premiere of the Selma movie. It is a welfare theater sustained by Oprah Winfrey’s charity. When I was in Selma this morning, it was playing the movie ‘Hidden Figures’ which is another black fictional image like ‘Django Unchained’:

The March Route In Selma

The Selma-To-Montgomery March started at the Brown Chapel A.M.E. Church. John Lewis led a mob out of the George Washington Carver projects directly across the street to the Edmund Pettus Bridge where the famous confrontation was filmed by the Lügenpresse and spun to the world as a morality tale:

In The Current Year, these blighted houses which have been stripped of copper wiring and tagged with graffiti inside can be found along John Lewis’s marching route through Selma:

Leaving Selma

Why isn’t there a Starbucks in Selma?

You would think there would be a Starbucks in light of all the conversations about race you can have on any given day in Selma. Tourists come from all over the country and the world to visit Selma. They come to walk over the magic bridge in the footsteps of ‘civil rights icon’ John Lewis. And yet, there seems to be no commercial activity any kind in downtown Selma. John Lewis destroyed the economy:

The Alt-Right Marches Through Selma

In 2011, I visited Selma to document the decline and all I found was tumbleweeds. That’s what I found again six years later in Selma. John Lewis parachutes in for the annual photo op, walks over the magic bridge with politicians like President Obama and the fake news Lügenpresse never tells the country what is going on because the truth about Selma doesn’t fit the Narrative:

In order to put an exclamation point on the myth of ‘civil rights icon’ John Lewis, I marched through downtown Selma a second time on Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend to show … it is a ghost town:
