I’m sure you never expected to read that statement. But it’s true. It’s been true several times.
Back when the Flaggers announced their plan to erect their really big flag along I-95, what did I say?
Show that Confederate pride as only you can. And please surround the flagpole with video cameras that will show us “threats” to the flag suitable for You Tube posting.
I believe they are doing just that.
Now we have a report on what the flag will look like.
I recall saying that at least flying what some call “the soldiers’ flag” — the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia — would at least strengthen the argument that this was about heritage, because it’s the Confederate navy jack that is most often associated with opposition to civil rights for African Americans in the 1950s and 1960s.
Looks like they followed my advice again. Maybe I should declare victory. 🙂
