Frank Nicely: I Don't Support The Secessionist Groups, They Support Me

The Representative from Strawberry Plains will be down at Fall Creek Falls this weekend to talk to a gathering of the Southern National Congress. Seems harmless, right?

Well, Judd Matheny (R-Tullahoma) was supposed to talk to them as well. But then he found out — from some groups that called him out — that the SNC is on a list of "neo-confederates" and decided that he would not attend. “I found out they were the wrong kind of freedom group and cancelled when I researched them further,” Matheny said in an email.

Who is the Southern National Congress?

From their Manifesto:

The federal regime has loosed upon us floods of immigrants, strangers to our laws and language embodying cultures and values contrary to those upon which our nation was founded, who are displacing us on the soil our fathers won with their sweat and blood. Fomenting hostility between the races and regions, our rulers have destroyed hope and spread despair. Injustice, tyranny, corruption, and deceit are the hallmarks of their governing. They call good evil and evil good, the recompense for which is divine judgement. Accelerated by dishonesty and corruption at every level of society and swept along by daily torrent of official lies, America is plunging toward the abyss. We watch transfixed with horror at the destruction of a once free and prosperous country and are forced to acknowledge the American political and economic system is no longer sustainable. It has become a long train of abuses, evidencing a design to reduce us under absolute despotism. Thus it cannot be salvaged or redeemed, only replaced.

Ah, yes. The Non-Whites-Have-Been-Unleashed-Upon-Us Theory of History.

Niceley said he's still doing the speaking gig.

“They’re endorsing my ideas, I’m not endorsing theirs’,” said Niceley. “There’s a lot of a name-calling going around. I don’t pay any attention to that.”

So, there you have it. An elected official from Tennessee speaking to a group that advocates secession from America. But remember, he's not endorsing their beliefs. They're endorsing his.

Parse that however you want.
