More Trouble for the Virginia Flaggers … Tripp Lewis Runs Afoul of the SCV

Oops … he did it again.

Tripp Lewis of the Virginia Flaggers seems to have run afoul of the Virginia Division of the SCV. It’s only a matter of time before all the details are aired for all to see and consider.

It’s once more a busy time for the Virginia Flaggers. After all, it is election day in Virginia, and several Flaggers have made their choice known.

Apparently the I-95 project isn't apolitical. It's not just about heritage and honoring soldiers.
Apparently the I-95 project isn’t apolitical. It’s not just about heritage and honoring soldiers.

Finally, there’s been more coverage in Richmond about the recent theft at the I-95 flagpole site. It is especially gratifying to learn that Grayson Jennings says that he would do nothing to knock over a crane used to exhibit the United States flag, even if he has trouble saying the words “United States.”

“You wouldn’t see any of us going down to downtown Richmond trying to knock the crane over with that American flag.”

My understanding is that the CBF being flown at I-95 was left untouched, so I’m not sure what Mr. Jennings’ point might be. But that’s what happens when Susan Hathaway’s no longer your spokesperson: the message gets muddled.

UPDATE: As several people have now noted (pride of place goes to Corey Meyer), the Confederate flag in the video is not the same flag that went up on September 28. I wonder what happened to the original flag.

Kevin Levin wonders why no one stopped what should have been a noisy robbery.

    Good God, Brooks! Do you have any idea what the charges might be? The Virginia chapter is Brag Bowling’s stomping ground. I’d love to know what qualifies as going too far for them.

      I am not privy to the charges. Here’s a video of his induction in September 2012, so it didn’t take long for him to find himself at cross -purposes with the organization.

    ” … that American flag.”

    Shows where he’s coming from, and it’s not his considering himself to be a citizen of the United States.

    Looking at the flag in the video, it does not appear to be the same flag that was raised over a month ago…it does not have the white border the original one does. Wonder why that is…or maybe I am just seeing things.

      I think you’re right, Corey. Wonder if anything happened to the original flag.

    So…what did Trippy do…?

      • Thelibertylamp November 5, 2013 / 4:00 pm

        I will be waiting with baited breath and a fresh bowl of popcorn ….this might get good!

      I think it stems from his arrest at the VMFA. IMHO

    They’re falling apart. Susan Hathaway is not a spokesperson for anything, Cooper is a lost individual looking for an identity, anywhere, Chastain is the cow that just keeps jumping overt the moon, Jennings is an old bitter buzzard of a dying breed – and Tripp, well, he’s a case study for a psychiatric panel. I do wonder what the charges are. We will know in due time.

      My highlight this week is that John C. Hall Jr. claims he wants to inform ABOR (the Arizona Board of Regents) that I commented on his bragging about pretending to be blind in order to sneak his dog into a hotel. By the way, such a threat is perfectly acceptable in the mind of Connie Chastain, so I guess it’s now okay to reveal why Susan Hathaway’s scared (Connie’s already performed the favor of doing that, so all anyone needs to do is to cite her as the source).

      Of course, Hall violated federal law, and his FB posting admits as much. So let’s see where this goes.

      Hathaway’s dilemma helps explain the Flaggers’ silence about the restoration of the Robinson House on the grounds of the VMFA. We’ll see what flags fly there.

    I do believe that now Tripp is using the name Donnie Brisko while posting on pages and attacking. The sentence structure and wording is in the same frame that Lewis uses.

    One of Tripp Lewis’s best friends. Who’s Friends with Matthew Heimbach? Flaggers Grayson Jennings and Tripp Lewis”

    Given that the Virginia Flaggers are still friends with Heimbach, we’d like to know how much they appreciate the support of someone who professes to be inspired by Corneliu Codreanu and the Iron Guard– the same fascists who were so consumed with anti-semitic violence that the German wehrmacht had to step in and hold them back.

    The irony is that Matthew Heimbach (see photo ) is fairly recent to the Neo-Nazi scene but a well known white supremacist; from what you can see from the photo, he’s a member/supporter of the Virginia flaggers.…/me-003…

      Heimbach’s involvement with the Flaggers is less interesting to me than his Distinguished Service Medal from the national SCV. That’s supposedly only awarded to members who’ve held positions of substantial responsibility for an extended period, but at the time Heimbach had only been a member for a year, and hadn’t done anything particularly noteworthy as part of the organization as as far as I can tell. What he DID do during the year leading up to his award was run around scrawling “white pride” graffiti at Towson, and publicly calling for the hanging of Nelson Mandela, all of which was public knowledge and covered by the media. Billy Bearden has insisted that the Distinguished Service Medal is only awarded after thorough and careful review by the SCV, and personally approved by Michael Givens, so it’s hard to believe they didn’t know of those activities.

      • Brooks D. Simpson November 29, 2013 / 5:27 pm

        In short, Billy Bearden has testified that Michael Givens knows who Matthew Heimbach is … and that, ladies and gentlemen, is your SCV today.
