PASS the PROTECTION BILL!
Another War Memorial Vandalized in Florida!!!!!!!!
Our Protection Bill has stalled…meanwhile another veteran memorial has fallen victim to desecration!
UNTIL THE PROTECTION BILL IS PASSED…WE ARE HOLDING THIS REPUBLICAN LEGISLATURE RESPONSIBLE for not protecting these veterans memorials!!!!
Please call the following representatives and demand that HOUSE BILL 97 be heard and passed out of the Criminal Justice Sub Committee.
Who to call:
These two legislators who are on the Committee and are from Lee County, should know about what happened with their local memorial and that there is a bill pending that might have prevented it!
Criminal Justice Sub-Committee Members:
Dane Eagle – (R )
850-717-5077 (Tallahassee) 239-772-1291 (Lee County)
Heather Fitzenhagen – (R)
850-717-5078 (Tallahassee) 239-533-2440 (Lee County)
What to say (Please be polite but firm):
I’m calling about House Bill 97.
I was outraged by what happened to the Lee County Memorial this week.
This is the third monument that has been vandalized/attacked this year.
I hold the Republican Legislature responsible for not passing House Bill 97 that would protect our veterans memorials in Florida.
The Representative serves on the Criminal Justice Sub Committee and the committee but the Committee has not put the bill on the agenda yet.
We need the Committee to HEAR and PASS the bill…NOW!
This is a disgrace to our veterans!
When to call:
Please call today and then later this week. When you call the second time, ask ‘has it been schedule yet?”
This week the Lee County Memorial, the bust of the County’s Namesake, General Lee, was attacked. See more details HERE.
This is the 3rd veterans memorial that has been attacked this year!
(Freeport Veterans Park Walk of Honor and the Sarasota V-J Day Monument were also vandalized)
James Grant has still not hearing the Soldiers & Heroes Monuments & Memorial Protection Bill. And his ‘too busy’ excuse isn’t holding water!
This week…his committee ISN’T EVEN MEETING!!
Meanwhile, a 3rd veterans memorial has been vandalized THIS YEAR in Florida. This time the Robert E. Lee Memorial in Fort Myers. Lee, of course, is the namesake for Lee County. THEY will be coming after the County Name NEXT!
-Together We Can Save Southern Heritage – FL
SAVE SOUTHERN HERITAGE Inc. is a not for profit 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 Anti-American 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 battles over American History and throughout Florida including the “We’ll Remember in November Campaign” that resulted in #heritagehater candidates to lose elections in Florida and others to win.
