    “… South fighting for their freedom from the federal government, just as in the American Revolution …”

    Ms. Cooper, I would, umm, like to point out that, um … King of Great Britain, um … not, um, they created a federal government to replace … um …

    Never mind.

    I’ve seen several of the big CBFs in other states, unless the wind is blowing you don’t notice them. There is also a barn on I 71 between Cincinnati and Columbus.that has a large a CBF painted of the roof. It’s Been there for years, I have no idea who’s it is or who painted it.

    Maybe it could be one of Clement Vallandigham’s descendants? LOL

    From the news story:

    However, wasn’t Virginia seceding, in part, to protect the institution of slavery?

    “That’s not what they were fighting for. They were fighting to defend Virginia. Virginia called them to service, leave their homes, leave their wives,” said Susan Hathaway.

    Sorry. The Virginia Ordinance of Secession explicitly cites “oppression of the Southern slaveholding States” as part of its justification for secession.

    Far as the CBF and I-95, I think those that are supporting it over estimate the percentage of those they think support it. Those that oppose it I believe as well over estimate the percentage of those that oppose it. I know of a couple of those type flags in Florida along the interstate and a couple in Georgia along the interstate,most don’t notice them, The only reason I know of them is because of a couple internet sites I happened on. I have believe the average rank and file person really isn’t concerned one way or the other.

      My guess is that you are right. The Flaggers are well within their rights to display this flag on private property. Once the flag is up (and I assume it will go up), folks will move to something else.
