Our State Flag Foundation and Delta Flaggers are apparently too skeered to speak with the media in the wake of latest flag failure...

In the wake of the latest Heritage failure, involving a University of Mississippi student who was recently arrested for allegedly failing to comply with police officers commands, as well as alcohol related charges, two Heritage groups have been unresponsive to media requests for comment, apparently too skeered to answer questions. Via the Clarion-Ledger:





"Ole Miss is among seven public universities in the state that have removed the flag from their campus. Some of them, including the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi State University, also ban sticks, but the backlash has not been the same. The majority of attention is directed toward the Oxford campus.
“Ole Miss You TAKE our money, You FLY our flag! —Taxpayers of Mississippi” proclaims a billboard on Mississippi 6. The Our State Flag Foundation purchased the sign and also hands out “Ole Miss, state funds, state flags” stickers on game-day."

The report goes on to add:






"The foundation turned down The Clarion-Ledger’s interview request. Another group, The Greenwood-based Delta Flaggers, which also would not agree to an interview, said on Facebook that volunteers passed out 600 stick flags in The Grove last Saturday. And the Oxford Eagle reported a member of the group was responsible for bringing the 20-by-30-foot state flag during the Alabama game.
When The Clarion-Ledger asked McDaniel about why there seems to be more pressure on Ole Miss, he pointed to the university’s “traditions.”
“Every university in the country has some unique tradition.  ... and I think they should stick to those unique traditions. I think difference and diversity make us special, that’s what makes it (Ole Miss) special.
The claims are familiar to Vitter, who citing his open-door policy, said he's had several meetings with individuals upset about the changes.
Vitter, a New Orleans native, said he grew up viewing “Dixie” as a symbol of “Southern pride.”
He understands leaving it behind may be painful for some, but the song itself he realizes now is painful, too.
“We can not harken back to the old origins,” Vitter said. “We no longer accept the Confederacy or Confederate flag.”"

We will discuss speculation as to why so much effort is being concentrated on the University of Mississippi, while other universities in the state of Mississippi seem to be neglected by the efforts of Heritage fanatics in a future post.







Restoring the honor!

  1. I don't blame them. I wouldn't do it either. Most especially the Clarion-Ledger. The media has proven itself hostile to Confederate heritage. It isn't cowardly to refuse to walk into a den of vipers.

    Also, I think the claims of the "painfulness" of flags and songs is made up. And being forced to leave the flag behind isn't painful, it is infuriating. Vitter evidently thinks so, which leads one to the conclusion that he wants to protect one group from "pain" and inflict "pain" on another group.

    1. Spoken like a true white supremacist.

    2. Sez you. That's just my observation and experience. Most of the people I've actually encountered (online and in person here in Pensacola) who reference the "painfulness" of the flag are either white liberals or black activists. And they basically don't use that word. Most people simply don't relate to it like that. The greatest reaction to the flag, per a Pew Poll, is indifference, not pain. It's not white supremacist to relate what I have experienced and observed.

    3. I'd love to see some video of Connie Chastain chatting with a black activist. Wouldn't you?

    4. And you don't like either one of those groups since they use facts instead of subscribing to the Lost Cause lies.

      Remember, there are more liberals than conservatives and that number gets bigger every day.

    5. Why, Simpson, way to miss the point! Does that come naturally, or do you have to cultivate it? I heard them speak at city council and county commission meetings, though I would appreciate chatting with them in person. Maybe I can when I hit the sidewalks again -- start date can only be estimated at this point, but I hope it will be some time in the second quarter of 2017. That's very iffy, though, as a lot of unrelated items, elective and unavoidable, have to be addressed and resolved first. Know what they are? You're always claiming to know all about me. Why don't you list them, tell everyone what they are....

    6. I think I hit a sore spot with Chastain. LOL!

      So "an encounter" has been reduced to "I heard them speak." Funny!

      Delete
    7. Why, yes. "Encounter -- to come upon or meet with, especially unexpectedly"

      Note the "or". So encounter means to "come upon" and I came upon -- encountered -- the folks I'm talking about at city council and county commission meetings. Oh, learned professor, did you not know this is one definition of "encounter"?

      You never hit sore spots with me.

    8. In short, Chastain simply can't go face-to-face with a black activist. She's skeered.

      Your struggles continue, Chastain. It's most amusing.

    9. Oh, learned professor, what do you not understand about ".... though I would appreciate chatting with them in person..."? Haven't gone face to face with white liberals about it, either, though I'd like the opportunity to. When are you going to Richmond to spew your hatred face to face at Susan Hathaway?

    10. I actually looked for her one time at the VMFA. She wasn't there. Maybe you can tell me why.

      In fact, I've been to Virginia several times in the past several years. The appearances have been publicized. Guess who hasn't shown up?

  2. The voice of injustice and intolerance strikes again.

    1. Nothing unjust or intolerant in what I said, Simpson. What are you doing here? Getting boring at your hate blog? Come visit the Lie Detector ... http://polygraff.blogspot.com/

      Try not to be disappointed ... it features Kevin Levin a lot right now. But you will get your turn.

    2. Not bored at all ...

      ... not bored at all.

      Guess you concluded that you wanted to double the number of your incompetent blogs. Backsass must have failed.

    3. When you start to actually learn facts, then your blog will be visitable. Until then, it's just another waste of electrons on the Internet.

      Every time you say secession is constitutional, you lie. So why should anyone believe anything you say?

      Delete
    4. You keep saying "facts." I do not think that word means what you think it means.

      Delete
    5. We know you ignore facts which you don't like, KKKonnie. It is a well proven fact.

      Delete
    6. You overuse the word "facts" Dimmy. You don't use facts.

      Delete
    7. Let me know when you can prove that. Your opinion doesn't count for anything.

      Delete
    8. Ah, but mine does since the facts I use are the ones historians use. Historians use these facts because they exist via primary sources whereas yours do not exist except in your mind. That is a pretty big difference. I can point to a lot of secondary sources written by historians about the facts that exist via primary sources. You on the other hand cannot. For me, I work with history as it occurred. For you, you make it up to meet your beliefs and ideology.

      That's why I get paid to teach history and you don't.

    9. She must have lost the flowchart...

    10. She ignores it because it calls for facts which she doesn't have. So she just makes up claims out of thin air trying to seem like she knows something which of course she doesn't.

  3. That Confederate heritage can't do better for defenders than Connie Chastain tell us a lot about the movement.

  4. LOL!!! But when it comes to anti-Confederate hate, bullying, cyberstalking, harassing, etc,. you are indeed tops!

  5. Alas, when it comes to heritage-hatin' anti-racist jackassery, quite a few attackers give Simpson a run for his money. They all have the same general goal, but they approach it in different ways, and employ different skills. Language trickery seems common to them all, though...
