The Heritage Deception: World's Largest Confederate Flag

Folks, no matter how much they tell a lie, it's still not going to become the truth. I don't care what they heard from the Nazis.

Don't you just hate it folks when someone else tries to steal all of your thunder?

Pretty darn shameful! This type of behavior certainly does not honor the Confederate soldier.





Restoring the honor!

  1. Nobody cares what you're trying to stir up, Jacob. The flag-raising today was a huge success.

    1. Success in that it happened, I guess. Failure in that, Susan has been unable to force the return of flags. Can you imagine how your ancestors must feel about this? They are rolling over, literally, in their graves, knowing that this is what the Confederacy has become. Y'all literally gave up on the goal and did something else instead. Folks, no matter how much they lie, roadside battle flags was not the goal, returning the flags was. If they raise one million of these, that does not reach the goal, which was to return the flags from where they were removed. The new flags are symbolic of them admitting that they are failures.

    2. Nope, you're wrong. The flaggings of the VMFA continue as always. The roadside battle flags serve several purposes, including demonstrating that flag displayed in public don't cause the world to come to an end. Danville hasn't gone belly-up, and the VMFA wouldn't go belly up if the two small flags were returned to the chapel.

    3. I think describing the flags as "retaliation" is a major messaging blunder. Y'all have shown your hand, it's not about Heritage at all, it's about getting even.

    4. In South Carolina, yes, retaliation, for the current war on heritage begun by Nikki Haley.

    5. Yeah. About South Carolina. For some reason the SCSP isn't coming up in any of the non-profit databases, but we know that they are a 501c4, because they said so. A lot of weird fundraising things going on here. I'm sure the IRS and State can sort it all out, and I'm sure they will in time, they always do.

    6. Having a tough time finding a listing for the Flaggers too, can anyone help?

    7. Good news folks, the SCSP is all sorted on the non-profit front.

      Still searching on the Flaggers, no luck so far. They may only be an LLC. The non-profit status makes you exempt from taxes. Hmmmm...

  2. Once again a flag is raised and a lie is told. Good thing I put the South Carolina Declaration of the Causes of Secession on the screen yesterday and asked the class why South Carolina's delegates to their secession convention chose to secede from the United States. Amazing how they all read it and said that the delegates stated that slavery was the cause of secession.

    Raise more flags please. Those cause people to ask questions which are answered with primary sources. Why did South Carolina secede? Slavery. The truth gets told, but not by the flaggers!

    1. Dimmy, who has argued that slavery wasn't a factor in secession? Not me. But note, the battle flag was not the flag of secession. It didn't exist when South Carolina seceded. If they were raising Bonnie Blues everywhere, you might have a point. But they aren't, so you don't.

    2. Why raise a flag of treason? What is the point of raising a CBF in 2016? The purpose of the Confederacy was to protect slavery. Why celebrate that? There is no point in raising a CBF today unless you want to celebrate the protection of slavery.

      If you try to say you are honoring the Confederate soldiers, then you are also honoring the cause they fought for which was the protection of slavery.

      How did secession protect slavery?

    4. The people raising the flags don't agree with you.

    5. Connie, I bet you wish you were dealing only with my blog....but now you have this one to deal with and its 10x's more troublesome for you and your Virginia Flaggers.

    6. The people raising those flags don't know history. They believe in a lie and refuse to accept facts.

      BR, that's a dumb question.

    7. BR, what was the last book on the war you read?

    8. "BR, that's a dumb question."

      What slavery issues are mentioned in the secession documents?

      How would secession resolve those issues?

  3. Read the documents. Slavery dominates them. You just asked another stupid question.

    1. "States Rights" is Confederate white supremacist code for the freedom to own humans as property.

    2. "Read the documents. Slavery dominates them."

      Slavery what? What are the issues?

      *Slave insurrection
      *Runaway slaves
      *Slavery in the territories

      How would secession resolve those issues?

      Delete
    3. States Rights were and still are a joke. They are what the minority party says until they gain political power on a national level and then try to make their policies national policies by overriding the other party's policies. The deposed party begins to use the term states rights and the cycle perpetuates itself.

    4. BR, Ask the men who decided secession would solve those issues. They are the ones who said they wanted to secede over slavery. They listed those very concerns in the documents and said that they could only solve the issues by secession.

      Obviously secession did not solve those problems. In fact, secession accomplished nothing for the slave owners because they still could not travel with slaves into free states, make slavery legal in the western territories, or send slave catchers into the free states without the catchers being interfered with.

      Yet, the slave owners wanted to secede because of slavery.
