Some of the supporters of the Virginia Flaggers have tried to distance themselves from Matthew Heimbach. In a characteristic outburst, Connie Chastain, blasting both Andy Hall and me, declared:
Their photos and videos are all over the Internet, on their blog, Facebook and Youtube, yet you can’t find Heimbach anywhere in there since that one march?
You’re slippin’, Andy. Either that, OR HE HASN’T BEEN WITH THEM AGAIN. WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU? THEY HAVE MARCHED AND DEMONSTRATED AND PROTESTED DOZENS AND DOZENS OF TIMES WITHOUT HIM, and only ONE with him? SO WHAT THE FLOCK DOES THAT TELL YOU, ANDY?
So, according to Connie Chastain, Matthew Heimbach’s had nothing to do with the Flaggers since February 2012, right?
Wrong. Just go to the Confederate Flaggers Facebook page, search for Mr. Heimbach’s name, and you’ll find he’s a member of the group who posted there just a few months ago.
After all, Connie, you told me to look at Facebook. Thanks.
And, speaking of people who like Mr. Heimbach, remember “Bill Rebel,” who made an appearance in yesterday’s comments section? Seems there’s a reason he didn’t condemn Heimbach:
It’s because they are Facebook friends.
So, folks, let’s understand that when the Flaggers say they have nothing to do with Matthew Heimbach … they aren’t telling the truth. He’s just the kind of fellow they like.
You know, the least these folks could do is be honest. To lie about this while making it so easy to discover that they are lying doesn’t say much for them. Such lack of intelligence really undermines claims of white supremacy, don’t you think?
