On this day Jan 14th: 'Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!

On this day January 14th:
1601-Church authorities burned hate filled Jewish books in Rome.
1742-Aryan Genius Sir Edmund Halley, the English Astronomer Royal who gave his name to a comet that now bears his name, died in Greenwich, London, aged 86.
1897-Hasso von Manteuffel, German General and politician was born in Potsdam. He was one of only 27 holders of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds.
1913-First Balkan War: The Greek army defeated the Turks at Bizani.
1930-National Socialist hero Horst Wessel, leader of SA Storm Troop 5 was shot in the face by a communist. (He died February 23)
1963-Segregationist George Wallace was inaugurated as the governer of Alabama, promising his followers 'Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!'
1989-1000 muslims ritually burned copies of Salman Rushdies' "Satanic Verses" in Bradford England.

Today I have stood, where once Jefferson Davis stood, and took an oath to my people. It is very appropriate then that from this Cradle of the Confederacy, this very Heart of the Great Anglo-Saxon Southland, that today we sound the drum for freedom as have our generations of forebears before us done, time and time again through history. Let us rise to the call of freedom-loving blood that is in us and send our answer to the tyranny that clanks its chains upon the South. In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny . . . and I say . . . segregation today . . . segregation tomorrow . . . segregation forever.
