CONFEDERATE FLAG “DEPLORABLE” STANCE REJECTED BY FLORIDA VOTERS
Tampa – The election results are in and Floridians from Pensacola to Key West who identify with Florida history and heritage cast their ballots in droves against the Presidential Candiate that disrespected them and their families.
“Floridians remember seeing Hillary Clinton on TV last summer saying ‘the Confederate flag should not fly there…it should not fly anywhere’” said David McCallister, Save Southern Heritage – Florida spokesman. “Floridians are tired of being branded “deplorable” because they are Christian, Southern, or are just patriotic” he added.
Clinton came out strongly applauding the actions of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley by breaking the compromise agreement that placed a Southern Cross on the Confederate Veteran monument on Capital grounds in Columbia, South Carorlina.
South Carolinians spoke loudly in the Republican Primary last year rejecting Republican front runner Jeb Bush for the same stance.
“Floridians are tired of the dis-respect of their Southern heritage, and elected officials should take note that voters in Dixie are not going to stand for this” said David McCallister.
Presidential hopeful John McCain suffered the same fate after his flip-flop on the issue.
“Diversity includes Southerners…but they have been pushed away from the table of brotherhood…and that dog won’t hunt in Dixie” McCallister added.
SAVE SOUTHERN HERITAGE Inc. is a 501 c (4) public welfare corporation that educates & advocates on behalf of Southern Heritage & History. It was started in 2015 in response to the knee-jerk Anti-Southern institutionalized bullying and “Eracism” levied against the people of South Carolina by Governor Nikki Haley, after she broke all previous agreements about how South Carolina’s historical veterans and their symbols should be treated and respected.
The Florida branch was activated in mid-January 2016, in response to three initiatives in the Florida Legislature that are part of a hate campaign led by extremists, who refuse to respect the various cultures that make up the fabric of Florida’s society. Since that time, it has grown in membership and has been active in Heritage battles throughout Florida and developed a “We’ll Remember in November Campaign” launched in January with a Capital Flyover.
