Virginia Flaggers: HB587/Charlottesville Lee Statue Update

From: Virginia Flagger <info@vaflaggers.com> Date: Fri, Apr 22, 2016 Subject: Va Flaggers: HB587/Charlottesville Lee Statue Update   Legislative update: Wednesday, April 20th: After the House of Delegates easily voted to override Gov. McAuliffe’s Veto of HB587, a bill that would have clarified our monuments and memorials law, Senate Democrats, straight down party lines, goose-stepped with the NAACP and McAuliffe and refused to override the veto. This means that while the law still stands and our monuments are still protected, we will now likely have to spend time and resources in court to get the bill clarified. This also means that the NAACP and others will be scrambling to try and get monuments torn down before the court issues the clarification, just like we are seeing in Charlottesville. Senate Democrats would rather ALL Veterans’ monuments be at risk, than clarify the original intent of a bill that includes protecting Confederate war memorials. What a sad, sad day in the Commonwealth… and a reminder of how important it is to put the right people in office.   The night before the veto override session, the Governor hosted a reception for Democrats in the Governor’s Mansion, actually celebrating his vetoes of bills. He even took the opportunity to put up a billboard at the reception to highlight his actions. Look closely at the billboard and you will note that the veto of the monuments and memorial clarification bill was placed under the category of a victory AGAINST “discrimination”… ​                     We agree with the placement, but for an altogether different reason than the Governor… there is little doubt his veto of the monuments and memorials clarification bill discriminates against veterans!   Charlottesville:   The Save LEE Park/RE Lee Statue Rally and City Council meeting…

Across the South, Confederate statues take their final stand by Jennifer Brett

NEW ORLEANS – For more than 130 years, a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee has towered over the Crescent City from atop a 60-foot marble column. His days there appear to be numbered. The statue, unveiled in 1884 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991, is one of several historic statues with a Confederate connection that the city council has voted to remove. A lawsuit filed in federal court here by the Monumental Task Committee, Louisiana Landmarks Society, Foundation for Historical Louisiana, and Beauregard Camp, No. 130, a chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, has put those plans on hold for the moment. A hearing is scheduled for Jan. 14. The action mirrors discussions and efforts throughout the South, including Atlanta, aimed at dispensing with Confederate imagery. In July 2015, the month after the mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal in Charleston that killed nine black worshipers, the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP called for the Confederate engraving to be sandblasted off the side of Stone Mountain. “It is time for Georgia and other Southern states to end the glorification of slavery and white supremacy paid for and maintained with the taxes of all its citizens,” the chapter said in a statement at the time. “NAACP Atlanta chapter is calling for the immediate removal of all Confederate Memorial Monuments maintained by the state of Georgia using taxpayer money.” That proposal didn’t gain much traction. More recently, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed called for local Civil Rights leaders to work out plans to erect a monument honoring Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. atop Stone Mountain. Elsewhere, efforts to scrub the South of its Confederate heritage include a proposal to remove “Silent Sam,” a bronze statue on the campus of the University of North Carolina at…

Kutztown University lifting unconstitutional ban on Confederate flag

Kutztown University has just announced that it’s lifting its ban on Confederate flags (and Nazi flags), a ban that extended even into students’ own dorm rooms:   Kutztown University recently announced a proposed change to its housing decoration policy restricting the display of symbols that promote messages inconsistent with the values of the university. Upon learning of the change, university legal counsel asked us to refrain from implementing the policy in order to permit a review for constitutionality. As a result of this review, references to any specific content, such as symbols, will be removed from the policy. The university will educate our students and other members of our community, so they will understand the historical and modern context for these symbols, and we will continue to advocate for an environment wherein all those associated with our university can feel valued and safe.   I still don’t like universities’ use of “safe” to mean “safe from offensive speech.” But at least the First Amendment violation is apparently going away.   UPDATE: Note that if the university is planning on keeping the other part of the policy — “[a]ll decorations in common areas in the residence hall and apartments must take into consideration that obscene, distasteful displays which are demeaning to an individual’s or group’s race, ethnic, religious background, and/or gender or ability, will not be permitted and will be removed immediately” — that too would violate the First Amendment, as the earlier post explained.   UPDATE: A commenter suggested that a university could ban Confederate flags, because of the Supreme Court’s recent decision allowing Texas not to print Confederate flag plates as part of its specialty license plate program. But that’s not right: Viewpoint-based restrictions on people’s speech are unconstitutional, even when the government is specifying which signs people may…

Robert E. Lee’s Name to Remain on Texas School

Robert E. Lee’s Name Will Remain on NEISD High School Posted Tuesday, December 8th 2015 @ 12pm The name of Confederate General Robert E. Lee will remain on a North East ISD High School, News Radio 1200 WOAI’s Morgan Montalvo reports. The board voted 5-2 not to change the name of Robert E. Lee High School following several hours of emotional debate from members of the public, and members of the board. “How do we really care about growing out minority students in school, when minority students have to make a choice about going to a school named Robert E. Lee?” said Chris Herring, who organized the effort to change the name of the school. Letti Bresnahan, the President of the NEISD Board of Education, who voted against the name change, said the Administration instead will launch an effort to weed out any evidence of racism or racial indignities in the district’s facilities. “There might be some symbols and some icons that maybe should be removed, symbols that have been adopted by groups that represent racial hatred and racial divide, and we don’t want that in our schools,” she said. Herring says if they really want to wipe out ‘racial hatred’ they don’t have to look any further than the name on the school building itself. “Robert E. Lee is a symbol, Robert E. Lee is a sign, Robert E. Lee represents the Confederacy,” he said. Last night’s vote closes the issue of renaming the high school. The issue of how the USA recognizes and honors figures who are associated with the Confederacy burst into the public eye earlier this year when a Confederate flag waving white supremecist shot and killed nine people in a historic African American church in South Carolina. While Confederate President Jefferson Davis and other Confederate figures have had their…

VA Flaggers: Mechanicsville Christmas Parade

Over the years, we have enjoyed participating in the Mechanicsville Christmas Parade.  It is always very Confederate friendly, and we receive a warm welcome and support from organizers and spectators.  We had to wonder, with the PC anti-Confederate backlash set in motion since Governor Haley stripped the Confederate Flag from the Confederate Monument in Columbia almost 5 months ago, if things might be different this year.  Turns out it was VERY different, but not in the way we might have guessed.. From the moment we stepped off and offered the first child a stick flag, we were literally swarmed with kids (and adults!) wanting flags.  Before we had gotten halfway through the parade route we had given out over 1,000 flags, and exhausted our supply. ​General Jackson was a huge hit with the kids! Over 50 strong, our group was the first in a series of Confederate units that were grouped together in the parade. The Edmund Ruffin Fire-Eaters Color Guard led our unit, and almost as soon as the flags came into sight, we could hear the crowd start to roar! The scene was repeated over and over again as we were met with rousing cheers and enthusiastic support throughout the entire parade, much more so than in previous years. ​We were greeted with shouts of “God bless y’all”  “Keep it flying” and many, many expressions of thanks. For our Flaggers, it was a welcome and much needed break from dealing with the hate, bigotry, and abuse they often face on the front lines.  The overwhelmingly positive response and show of love and support was a great boost and almost every participant commented on the incredible experience. ​We were absolutely stunned…and thrilled…at the outpouring of support and encouragement. Pay no attention to the haters, folks…Dixie is alive and well…and…

BUSTED! SPLC’s Fabricated Hate Crimes Brought to Light

BUSTED! SPLC’s Dothan Police Drug Planting Claim Is A Hoax DECEMBER 3, 2015 “Leaked documents reveal Dothan, Ala., police planted drugs on young black men for years.” Southern Poverty Law Center [SPLC] December 2nd, 2015 Left-wing websites have been buzzing about a claim that over twelve Dothan, AL police officers framed innocent black men. The officers allegedly planted drugs on innocent black victims for years.  Most cited the SPLC as their source. The SPLC pushed the allegation on their website and on their twitter account. Now the SPLC has been forced to admit that their accusations are totally without merit. The websites of the Montgomery Advertiser, Dothan Eagle, Washington Post, and Slate.com have all blasted the SPLC for spreading a hoax! A humiliated SPLC spokesman confessed to reporters that they have not seen the alleged documents and that “we have no information to substantiate … claims.” SPLC employees immediately scrubbed a bunch of odious tweets that pushed the false claims. However, currently the SPLC website still contains a statement saying that the fake story is true. The SPLC is a fake civil rights organization that has raked in hundreds of millions of dollars by claiming that a few thousand KKK members and Neo-Nazis pose a large immediate threat to all of society. Recently the national spokesman for the Anti-Defamation League slammed the SPLC. He said that the SPLC’s claims about Neo-Nazis are “wildly inflated.” Last October a Florida judge ordered the SPLC to pay $130k to the Polk County Sheriff’s Department for filing a frivolous lawsuit. The Judge slammed the SPLC writing that the group used ““untrue, heightened, and emotional language . . . to conceal their lack of a case.” On October 19th, 2015 the SPLC falsly claimed that white racists were trying to burn down black churches in St….

UNLV president says school needs to keep Rebel name

UNLV president says school needs to keep Rebel name; no ties to Confederacy Published November 30, 2015 Associated Press Facebook45 Twitter0 Email Print Feb. 1, 2014: In this file photo, UNLV mascot Hey Reb warms up the crowd before an NCAA college basketball game in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/Isaac Brekken) CARSON CITY, Nev. –  UNLV President Len Jessup said the school needs to keep “Rebels” as its nickname in spite of calls for its removal, citing newly released historical research that concluded the moniker is not a reference to the Confederacy. Jessup issued a statement Monday saying the name embodies UNLV’s entrepreneurial spirit, and noting overwhelming support for the nickname and the “Hey Reb!” mascot. “It was coined as our young institution was fighting to establish its own identity, and it has come to represent the very independence and spirit that embodies both UNLV and Southern Nevada,” Jessup wrote in a message to the UNLV community. “It is clear that ‘Rebels’ is central to our shared identity and represents the broadest definition of the term.” Some have called for the name and mascot to be changed, saying the mustachioed, cowboy hat-wearing character appears to be a Confederate soldier. The university embarked on a formal research effort this summer after Democratic Sen. Harry Reid said regents should re-examine the Rebel nickname — comments made in the aftermath of an allegedly racially motivated mass shooting at a church in Charleston, South Carolina. The mascot also became a flashpoint during an on-campus demonstration organized in mid-November to show solidarity with protesters at the University of Missouri. UNLV Chief Diversity Officer Rainier Spencer finalized a 60-page research paper on the topic earlier this month, concluding the Rebel name emerged from southern Nevada students’ frustrations in the 1950s that the Legislature wasn’t investing as much in…

Petition On Denton Statue

Regarding "Petition seeks to remove Denton Confederate statue" From: BlckRbl@aol.com To: ddenmon@wfaa.com http://www.txcn.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/localnews/tv/stories/wfaa080428_mo_statuedebate.aced19a6.html Good Day to you! Once again," political correctness" rears its ugly head in beautiful Denton, Texas. As an African American I find the selective inclusion of "acceptable" aspects of black history to the exclusion of others to be highly racist and willfully ignorant. I also find this whole concept of "white guilt" to be equally ignorant as well. I was born of two Virginia slave families from King and Queen County and Southampton County as well. I am well versed in the trials and tribulations of slavery and what my family had to endure. I am also well versed in the fact that, like our white brothers and sisters, we two were divided in our loyalties of the time. I am descended from several combat veterans, and I find the very idea of anyone dishonoring the history and legacy of Black Confederates to be racist and dishonest. I have been a historian all my life, having grown up in the Valley Forge, Pennsylvania area and reenacting as a Black Confederate for about 7 years now. My unit, the 37th Texas Cavalry has spent a great amount of time conducting grave marker dedications and battling hate groups seeking to hijack CSA heritage for their own personal use. Twice we have given memorial services in Darlington, SC, in honor of Private Henry "Dad" Brown, installing a flag of the 21st South Carolina Volunteer regimental flag. Assisting us in placing Henry Brown’s Confederate grave marker were then-Republican SC Senator Glenn McConnell and Democratic South Carolina Senator Kay Patterson. Imagine that; a white republican and a Black Democrat coming together as brothers to honor a Black Confederate. The flavor of that Day can best be summed in the words of Senator…

City Council’s Email Address

City Council’s email address   From: wildbill4dixie@yahoo.com   Chuck   In looking for people to "cc" before sending this email, I happened upon an email address which is for the Auburn city council, and which does not appear to be listed on the SHNV blog. You might want to pass it along to your readers. – coagbemail@auburnalabama.org   Bill V. ———- To: bishopdowdellministries@yahoo.com CC: bham@auburnalabama.org, coagbemail@auburnalabama.org   Re: http://www.oanow.com/oan/news/local/article/dowdells_actions_garner_disapproval/69850/   Mr. Dowdell,   Combine a pound of arrogance and a gallon of ignorance, stir in a firm commitment to the belief that the world revolves around you and that your sh** doesn’t stink, and the result is behavior of the type that you, “Councilman” (or is it “bishop”?) demonstrated when you goose-stepped into a cemetery to rip up flags planted at soldiers’ gravesites, ostensibly because you were “offended” by them.   Congratulations. The stench of your actions has reached all the way to Commack N.Y. You must be very proud of yourself as, by your actions, I think you have managed to outdo every other self-centered, race-baiting thug that has come down the pike in the last hundred years. Ripping up flags from gravesites because you’re offended? Didn’t your mommy and daddy ever teach you about self-control?   I am heartily suggesting to your colleagues, cc’d on this email, that you be tossed off the Auburn city council. Your actions demonstrate clearly that you have no regard for the citizens of Auburn. Believe it or not, some people actually feel differently about the flag in question. Some actually like it! And their rights, their opinions, their feelings, are as important as anyone else’s, including, and I know this is oh-so-hard for you to comprehend – YOURS! You do not have a right to dictate to anyone. Your title is “Councilman”,…

USA Federalism

American federalism: What Changed between 1787 and 2004? Commentary by Steve Scroggins With Thanksgiving coming this week, I was looking for some relevant links to place on the GHC website, such as George Washington’s first Thanksgiving Proclamation. I found a website containing "the Papers of George Washington." The introduction gave background on the first Thanksgiving Proclamation. What struck me as noteworthy in the introduction was the deference with which President Washington treated the governors of the several States. This respect is not surprising for those of us who are familiar with early American government from the end of the Revolution (1783) to the Articles of Confederation to the drafting and ratification of the U.S. Constitution. For everyone steeped in the propaganda and folk lore of the American Empire, and relatively unfamiliar with true American history, this would come as somewhat of a shock. Can you imagine the President of the United States asking State governors for anything? It was universally understood by the Framers—-and the State governments that ratified the Constitution—-that the States were the supreme governments and that the federal government was the subserviant, limited agent of the States, authorized to carry out only the specific and enumerated powers delegated in the Constitution. If the President wanted to Proclaim something (especially something not specifically authorized in the Constitution), he had to ask the Governors or legislatures of the States for their approval and assistance. Naturally, it was a Southern member of Congress who took exception to Washington’s request. Everyone had great respect for Washington (a Southerner), but I suspect that this Southern Representative was just being a stickler for the roles of government and was wary of any precedents or power-grabs by the federal executive. The reasoning for the Congressman’s concern about the Proclamation, as I interpreted it, was…

Birds Of A Feather?

John Grisham and Morris Dees: Birds of a Feather? Al Benson Jr. 19 August 2009 A couple years ago someone gave me a copy of one of John Grisham’s books which I really enjoyed. After reading it I picked up several more, some at used book stores. They were well written and Grisham could spin an interesting yarn that held your attention, especially about lawyers, since he had once been one. Although I didn’t totally agree with all of his viewpoints, nonetheless I felt that in many instances he attempted to understand the Southern mindset, and he lived here, not up in New York or out in Hollyweird. He also wrote about some places I have been to, the Mississippi Delta country, Memphis, Northeast Arkansas, and a few other spots. As you read his books you could picture some of the places he wrote about, and it was, in a sense, almost an armchair vacation to read some of his stuff. I realized that, being a best–selling author, he’d have to have somewhat caved in to the current gods of political correctness, but it seemed he had done so without making a big deal of it. All of that being said, very recently, I took my entire stock of John Grisham books and turned them in at our local used book store. Henceforth, no Grisham books will line my bookshelves. I have to admit, I hadn’t thought very much about John Grisham’s political views beyond the fact that they probably weren’t quite the same as mine. Someone had told me he was a Christian and I thought, somewhere along the line, I had read that he had taught Sunday School. But, then, so did Jimmy Carter and that was no recommendation for him. Whatever he did or didn’t do, I…
