A GIFT FOR SOUTHERN HEARTS
Press release—January 15, 2008
Three Mobile County Sons of Confederate Veterans Camps, the Lee-Moses-Dixon Vindicator Camp of Saraland, Alabama, the D. H. Maury Camp of Grand Bay, Alabama, and the Jefferson Davis Vindicator Camp or Semmes, Alabama are honored to announce the christening of a new flagpole dedicated on the 201st birthday of General Robert E. Lee to every southerner who served his country, especially those in 1861-1865 and those serving today.
On I-10, just west of Mobile, Alabama, an eighty foot flagpole built to withstand hurricanes sits. Below it stand two light poles carrying 2,000 watt halogen lights. If the pole did fall, it would land on a family cemetery containing the graves of two Confederate soldiers. This site has a traffic count estimated at over 2 million, 160 thousand people a month. It will be visible for over a mile in both directions.
Currently atop this pole sits a 3 inch by 5 inch flag similar to one carried by the greatest army that ever walked the North American continent. It was the army of a Christian Nation. We will replace it with a 12 foot by 18 foot Confederate Flag. Once again, it is dedicated to every Southerner who ever fought for his country, especially those fighting now and those who bled in 1861-1865. If you’d like to make a donation, it will go towards our ultimate goal of flying a 20 by 30 flag similar to the SCV’s Montgomery flag. We are also searching for locations for future poles on major thoroughfares.
This project is a monument to truth. A truth that as President Jefferson Davis said; "if crushed to the earth will rise again." We salute you President Davis, in the 200th anniversary of your birth! It is a monument to the courage and honor of the Southern soldier. The pole is a reminder that in a free country, the speech, heritage and culture of all deserves equal protection. Southerners who believe in the bible, constitutional government, freedom of speech, and second amendment rights are under attack like no other group in our nation today. the pole will stand as testimony to the fact that millions of Southern Americans remain proud of their ancestors, who as R.E. Lee said, fought invaders to keep the constitution and the country that was inherited by them from their fathers.
This project is a reminder to cultural bigots who deserve no individual recognition here, that their ongoing intolerance shown by efforts to diminish, disparage, and otherwise erase our heritage will only fuel a fire in Southern Hearts. This fire will result in more of these projects, some of which are already in the works.
And finally, this project is given to the Southern people as a challenge. We challenge every one of you to never forget the truths of history, and never compromise our identity to the cultural bigots who preach tolerance for the rights of all and claim to celebrate diversity while simultaneously using a philosophy called political correctness to deny rights to others.
We will officially dedicate the flag on General Robert E. Lee’s 201th birthday, Saturday, January 19, 2008, at 1 P.M..
God Bless the Heart of Dixie!
