"You've got green beans, mashed potatoes, no gravy."
NARR: Greensboro, N.C. restaurant manager Gilbert Jones...a prominent member of the Sons...finds himself caught right in the middle.

SOT Gilbert Jones; member, Sons of Confederate Veterans

"I joined because it's a historical organization. Most of the guys joined for the same reason I did. They're interested in history, their heritage."
NAR: So it pained him, Jones said...to discover that the Sons themselves had been invaded.

(SOT/Jones )

"I told them it was time to take the Neo-Nazis and the White Supremists and the Aryan Nation Boys and show their butts to the door. There's just no room in our group for that.
NARR: Jones remarks are aimed at this man....Kirk Lyons, who is running for a top spot in the Sons organization. Lyons has some long ties to racial extremists...including David Duke...who shared the dias when Lyons had this to say during a recent speech.

(SOT/Kirk Lyons, SCV candidate)

"We seek nothing more than a return to a Godly, stable, tradition-based society with no 'Northern-isms' attached to it; a hierarchical society, a majority European-derived country that will make peace and a fair accord with all it's non-European derived neighbors."
NARR: Lyons declined our request to comment on that comment, or his campaign...while Gilbert Jones called it the code talk of a racist.

(VO/SOT Jones )

"The lunatic fringe is taking over. It gives us a bad image. I don't want to be associated with that. I can't afford to be associated with that. My children are members."

(ON CAMERA BRIDGE:)


And so are 32,000 other Americans....many in church, education and Congress, including Sens. Trent Lott and Jesse Helms. And that makes this fued more than a fight over just one man's views. It is a fight, some argue, for control of a platform that has enjoyed national legitmacy for 106 years.

(SOT/Mark Potok, Southern Poverty Law Center )

"This is seen very much as a prize by the White Supremists right."

SOT/Jones

"I'm sure a lot of people didn't realize what was happening. As Southeners, we're way too polite."
NARR: And now stand a chance of seeing an organization dedicated to the memory of their long dead kin....make some unpleaseant history of its own.))
