From the October 2006 Idaho Observer:

Everything not as government tells us it seems

Slave ships were not flying Confederate flags; retired Alabama sheriff tells "other side" of civil rights movement


He who directs the camera or holds the pen controls perception. If neither the camera nor the pen is ours, then our perception is hostage to the desires of others—many of whom are trained in the art of molding our thoughts. Much of the world as we perceive it is the result of an endless barrage of words and images that have been planted in our heads by government and corporations through their media organs. One of our most important tasks as independent-thinkers is to challenge "old pictures" with new information and discard those that no longer serve our needs as truth seekers.

Bear with me for a few items of "old business" and then I’ll get to some belated, but eye-opening, news. First off, we’re sick and tired of the bum rap here in Alabama. Slavery—that human cargo imported almost entirely on Jewish-financed ships flying British, Portuguese and predominantly U.S. ensigns—embodied an evil idea from day one; nor was it peddled exclusively in the South.

No African arrived under a Confederate flag. Northerners had little use for their slaves once the industrial age arrived, yet the bankers and manufacturing czars in those parts kept control of the South’s cotton exports at low prices by owning the ships, railroads and factories, setting up slave-labor plantations (of which 95 percent of Southern Whites had no part), then financed Lincoln’s election and invasion when our seceded States went shopping for a second bid from Europe.

Nothing has changed, the South was right; and the slave-trading firm of Bankersboy Clinton, Walmart & Co. has put today’s captains in charge of these newer, Chinese slave-labor plantations. So you Yankees stop throwing stones, please; rest your arms and passions, don’t get angry at the Sunnis and Shiites, nor blame 95 percent of China’s population, those coolies whom such privy lords didn’t even need to purchase. Now to my story.

The man having served as chief of police in Montgomery, Alabama, back when the "civil rights" drama came tearing down his State’s capitol city gates, explained for the first time, to a gathering of 200 on Oct. 7, 2006, what had actually happened there during the 1950s and ‘60s. Drue Lackey, now 80, in introducing his just-released book, "Another View of the Civil Rights Movement," was the annual Fall Muster’s featured speaker this year at Confederate Memorial Park near Marbury, a neat recreational area with museum and campgrounds plus cemetery, where 300 Confederate veterans lie buried some 25 miles north of Montgomery.

Police Chief Lackey, a Marine veteran of the South Pacific campaign, later trained by the FBI and having graduated from several law enforcement schools, unlike Eugene "Bull" Connor of Birmingham and Chief Jim Clark of Selma, had prepared and disciplined his men well for the "non-violent" mob that came hurling emptied bottles, bricks, spittle and insults at them. They simply ordered such roving gangs to cease hostilities and disperse; then, to the latter’s surprise when they didn’t, kept locking them up no matter how many.

Those rampaging lawbreakers had arrived according to what turned out to have been a plan coordinated between the U.S. Justice Department, the Communist Party USA, academia and the media, with expectations of quickly filling up Montgomery’s new jail, thereafter mocking George Wallace’s "reaction" to the impending New World Order by taking over this city. Unknown to those invaders brought in from across the U.S. and around the world, Lackey had reactivated his old jail and arranged with the State Board of Corrections to use their trustee barracks at Kilby Prison, just then vacant.

While Montgomery was preparing by all available means for the expected onslaught, the professionalism of his police force never faltered. They escorted U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy when he arrived at the capitol trying unsuccessfully to bluff Governor Wallace into a quick surrender and protected him by arresting angry white men armed with pickets and rotten tomatoes who wouldn’t disperse.

Chief Lackey’s men also stood watch outside Martin Luther King’s home on several occasions when it was threatened. The media got few shots in this city worth peddling to a misinformed world as police overreaction.

Elsewhere the rapes, murders and propaganda blossomed according to plan, in particular the four-day Selma-to-Montgomery Orgy (fashioned a "march" by the media)—an event that received top billing. Up-to-the-minute deadlines among "news" networks demanded various appearances throughout each day by an otherwise aloof Saint MLK, who would arrive at the appointed times in his chauffeured limousine, get out and "march" with the troops for the cameras, then disappear again to his private partying.

Lured to that media event with promises of all the free food, drink and sex they wanted, most of those imported Negroes kept their lusts in check until each break along the way, before rolling in the wayside grass all night long. 25,000 of them arrived on March 24, 1965, and spent their first drunken evening in Montgomery frolicking on the grounds at St. Jude’s, changing sex partners often throughout the night. "This," lamented Chief Lackey, "is what the federal government was sponsoring, a group of communists and moral degenerates."

Next day, his police, with help from armed National Guardsmen posted on rooftops overlooking the allowed line of march, and patrolling wherever the mob wandered off that path, never let the situation get farther out of hand than could be avoided. In spite of such strict discipline, however, many a local resident witnessed "nonviolent" but bestial conduct on his front lawn. Chief Lackey even helped MLK set up his flatbed podium and microphones, as stricter law enforcement would have been pointless at the time.

Drue Lackey’s 244-page just-released book, "Another View of the Civil Rights Movement," can be had by sending $20 (incl. s/h) to D&P Associates, PO Box 241114, Montgomery, Alabama 36124.

The book is written by a man who is speaking his mind and you will know you’ve read the honest truth when you finish it.
