The Lost Cause: New article claims Confederate Heritage groups turned down Baltimore Mayor's offer for statues because of cost...

(Image courtesy of The Week)




Citing a Wall Street Journal article, a shocking new article by The Week claims that unnamed Confederate Heritage groups have turned down an offer by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to purchase the monuments the city plans to remove due to the cost. Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't these the same groups who are supposedly so concerned about these monuments? Why would they turn down an offer to purchase them, that is, unless saving the monuments isn't really their goal? Pathetic. All talk folks. All talk. 





Restoring the honor!

  1. Why should this surprise anyone? They never put their money where their mouth is ... on anything else. Remember hos Ms. Susan "Restored the Honor" disappeared from the sidewalks of the VMFA when she found herself working for someone who contracts with "the enemy"? No guts there, either.

    Confederate heritage is all about empty gestures and cheap stunts like erecting flags in place of advancing a cause. The advocates don't have the heart to do what needs to be done.

    1. This is not your Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather's Confederacy, that's for sure.

    2. Simpson, you just want her to lose her livelihood. Destruction and misfortune is what you wish for people you dislike and disapprove of.

      Quote, ...Susan ... disappeared from the sidewalks of the VMFA when she found herself working for someone who contracts with "the enemy"?

      Tell us about that. Tell us about the circumstances ... tell us how "she found..." tell us what her employer did... I mean, since you're implying you know so much about it.

      Jacob, there is not a military/shooting war going on. This is a culture war. I've explained that to you. You don't know what they're accomplishing, so you say they're not accomplishing anything... LOL!

    3. What you are saying is that Susan Hathaway works for a company that works with people she opposes, but she's a principled person. Right. Not exactly the spirit of selfless sacrifice demanded by those who honor Confederates. Perhaps you should check when she got the job.

      You say you're Susie's buddy. You ask her. After all, I have friends in Virginia, too.

      Are you saying that Hathaway's so incompetent that she can't get another job? Or that she's so disloyal to the cause she espouses that she takes the money of a company working with the supposedly evil VMFA?

      The woman's a coward. Apparently you think she's also unemployable.

    4. No, I'm not saying ANY of that -- you are. YOU ARE. I'm saying you hate her for no good reason -- and have hated her and showed it for YEARS -- and you want to see misfortune come to her.

      And she hasn't done a thing to you.

      Is it even POSSIBLE for you to post about us without lying? To my knowledge, no heritage people have ever demanded "selfless sacrifice" by those who honor Confederates. If you think such a demand has been made, link to it.

      She's not a coward, but you are a hater, and a hurter. Nearly everything you've written about her is untrue and designed to hurt... like your fraudulent reviews of my books posted at Amazon -- those were intended to hurt me and my books. Because you apparently get off on trying to hurt people you don't like....

    5. Aw, is that the best you can do?

      You really need to get new material. Tired plot lines led to your demise as a writer.

      Delete
    6. And that's why you need new material. Your lies and less-than-creative rants are getting old. Pathetic, in fact. You would think a writer could be more creative.

      Then again, we are talking about you.

  2. Unidentified "Confederate Groups" huh? What a shame Ms. Mayor can't identify them for us... And tell us what the asking price is....

    Need a lot more information than these snippets contain...

    3. Maybe they...the unidentified groups...asked not to be identified so their inability to afford these statues would not translate into anger by groups like the Virginia Flaggers who are known to turn on their own??

    4. Maybe this and maybe that. Do you KNOW this? Then your "maybe-ing" is just your usual hate/putdowns.

    5. You are right, I don't no. But all I did is propose a possible explanation. The part that makes it a possible explanation is the word "Maybe"...damn

  3. How can you put a price on heritage? I'm sure the proceeds from Tripp's defense fund can be "diverted." Maybe the proceeds from your writings (or is that a negative number?)?

    1. There is price on heritage, but there can be a price for a material object, and if Ms. Mayor is gouging, that might explain the lack of buyers. If she wants to get rid of them anyway, why doesn't she just donate them?

    2. Looks to me as if Confederate heritage isn't priceless after all.

    4. Y'all are making a lot of assumptions based on a very-short-on-info story... true to your hate-filled hearts.

      Delete
    5. Talk about making assumptions ... "hate-filled hearts."

      It really must be sad to be you, Chastain, and believe that so many people hate you. Frankly, you aren't worth the energy it takes to hate someone. But it's clear you are projecting again.

      Wonder why you can't channel all that into returning to your blog.

      Delete
    6. One thing is for sure, there is a lot of money to be made in this Confederate Heritage business. It's a good thing that the accounting is so transparent...

      Delete
    7. Simpson for years YOU have been attacking. I have been defending. Your attacks are based in hate.

      I don't believe that "so many" people hate me, or the VaFlaggers. It's really quite a small number ... You, Jacob, Corey, Dimmy, Kevin Levin, Andy Hall and a handful of regulars in your peanut gallery...

      And for some people, hate doesn't take a lot of energy at all. In some cases -- perhaps yours -- hate is energizing....

      Why are you so obsessed with my blog?

      Delete
    8. Hate? No, I pity you, KKKonnie. You need psychiatric care for your mental condition and you are not getting it. So you continue to make a fool out of yourself on multiple blogs and people laugh at you.

      I will not be showing your blog to my students anymore. It really is not ethical to make fun of the mentally handicapped like you.

    9. Chastain tells us all about hate and love. It's quite a sight. She thinks people hate her because she needs a sense of importance that can't come from within, and she tells us that she loves it when people get angry because she has nothing in her own life to love.

      The woman has serious self-esteem issues.

      Chastain poses a problem for the human condition. On one hand, it's clear that she has serious problems, and it seems cruel to mock such a pathetic individual. On the other hand, she's so ridiculous that she makes an easy target, and she seems to like the abuse, which suggests something darker about her personal psyche.

      I still wonder about a Kardashian-style reality show featuring Hathaway, Chastain, and Cooper. I think it would sell. Grayson Jennings can be Bruce Jenner. Barry? Let me think. Tripp? Lord Dipstick.

      Delete
    10. Simpson, I think you and your flogger colleagues hate us because you exhibit it on your blogs. Your amateur psychology/psychiatry is pathetic...don't quit your day job. Everything about your post above reveals your malice.

      Except the Kardashian comment. That shows your shallowness. Big fan, are you? I've never seen a Kardashian reality show and know next to nothing about them. But you seem quite familiar....

      Delete
    11. Actually, I think the Kardashians are the model for the Flaggers. Someone's actually pitched to me a comedy based on their antics.

      That you think people hate you is your problem. Apparenly you need to feel that way. Sad.

      Delete
  4. Very simple. The Virginia Flaggers' FB page has nearly 41,000 likes. Ten dollars from each of those people gives you $410,000. That's a lot of cash with which to move the monuments to another location on private land and thus demonstrate a meaningful commitment to Confederate heritage. Heck, just move Lee and Jackson ... Taney wasn't a Confederate, after all.

    Let's see the Flaggers put their $ where their mouth is. It would be quite the PR coup.

    1. Might want to have an independent accountant to have a looksie at those finances. Do you know how many red dresses you can buy with that kinda cash? I am quite sure Virginia Flaggers, LLC has plenty of coin in reserve for golden opportunities just like this.

    6. Just because they haven't told you doesn't mean they don't have them :)

      But we have noticed that Tripp's taking a lower profile.

  5. "That's a lot of cash with which to move the monuments"

    It was the city of Baltimore's idea to remove them - "Confederate groups" aren't responsible. And it was "Confederate groups" that donated the statues in the first place. They should get them free of charge...if they are removed.

    1. They should just put them in a landfill since the Heritage crowd doesn't care about them. Cloth replica flags are clearly more important.

    3. Not wanting to pay the mayor's extortion fee doesn't necessarily mean not caring about the monuments. And we don't know WHAT's going on that isn't reported here. You are developing Simpson's three-year-old's mentality, "If I don't know about it, it doesn't exist" (or hasn't happened, etc.) I love watching y'all make three-year-old fools of yourselves...

    4. Send them to the island of misfit Confederate monuments.

    5. The mayor's "extortion fee"? Sounds like you know the amount, eh? Or are you lying again?

      Why not go to Baltimore and raise a few flags? And why not Pensacola? Why did you chicken out there, Chastain?

      Delete
    6. Chickened out? Telling us how your mind works again, I see, Simpson. Once again, your three-year-old mentality surfaces -- you think if you don't know about it, it doesn't exist/hasn't happened. I enjoy watching you be wrong. Keep it up.

    7. We await Chastain telling us how she saved Confederate heritage in Pensacola.
