I note that "Chicken Little" Gilmour has come out of seclusion to chant "The
sky is falling" because the Mountain Express wrote a balanced article about
me (February 19 Letter to the Editor "Unreconstructed" commenting on Feb 5
cover story "Rebel Yell: Heritage Fight Heats Up"). I must assume that
either the fairness of the article really upset him or his commie friends in
Greensboro sent his escape-from-a-real-job Foundation some more money. As
usual my "publicist" gets it all wrong. If Monroe would let his intense
pathological hatred of me subside for just a few minutes he would realize
that he doesn't even know me and has never taken the time to even meet me.
I will not waste space in your newspaper dignifying Gilmour's agenda driven
(and incorrect) version of my past with a rebuttal. Anyone who believes in
fair play is welcome to call or write me for my oft-repeated side of the
story (828-669-5189, email@example.com).
As for Monroe, I am very sorry that the Almighty did not create him as an
African American or a Native American or any other color besides priviledged
lily-white boy with Confederate ancestry. Maybe then he would not feel the
need to take out his "selbst hass" and hatred of anything white on me.
