UPDATE: STILL NO PLANS TO FLY A CONFEDERATE FLAG ON THE GROUNDS OF THE NEW MUSEUM OF THE CONFEDERACY IN APPOMATTOX
In an apparent attempt at appeasement, and after a week of overwhelming emails, phone calls, and cancelled memberships, the Museum of the Confederacy is now presenting a proposal to place “images of flags on signs on the front of the building”. Most of us know that museum banners are not permanent, change with exhibits, and most certainly, ARE NOT FLAGS.
They have also begun attacking the Va Flaggers, with petty and misleading statements such as “I’m sorry to disappoint you, but the bigger backlash has been from members who are astounded and disappointed that the Flaggers seem to have picked the wrong targets: the Museum of the Confederacy and the United Daughters of the Confederacy. I guess it is a tribute to the fact that the Flaggers have almost 6 months of experience, compared to the combined 240 years of experience of the MOC and the UDC.” (when questioned about the outcry that has been raised).
In all of the pages and pages of copied and pasted responses that have been forwarded to us, they have NEVER answered the direct question: WHY WILL THERE BE NO CONFEDERATE FLAG FLYING ON THE GROUNDS OF THE MUSEUM OF THE CONFEDERACY IN APPOMATTOX?
PLEASE continue to contact the museum. Ask them why there will be no Confederate flag…on a pole…flapping in the breeze…flying on the grounds?!?!? Then keep asking… until you get an answer! Call (804) 649-1861, or leave an email at www.vaflaggers.com.
Are you MAD enough yet?
Stand…fight…and NEVER back down!
