Virginia Flaggers Offer Robert E. Lee Half-Hearted Support

You knew it would be only a matter of time before the Virginia Flaggers would express themselves on the recent kerfuffle about how Washington & Lee University handles issues of Confederate heritage in the wake of a protest by several law students about the presence of Confederate symbols on campus.

And so they have … it’s another fabulous “Call to Action!”

Surely the Flaggers will mount up and go to Lexington and flag the Lee Chapel to make their opinions known, right? After all, the Lee Chapel’s not the VMFA, so Susan Hathaway can make the trip … and speaking of trips, Tripp Lewis can model his new shades in the spring weather.

What’s that, you say? All they want people to do is to send e-mails and letters? THAT’S ALL?

So much for restoring the honor.

This, frankly, is a disgrace. If Susan can travel across the South spreading the word, she can go to Lexington. If Tripp can get arrested in Richmond, he can get arrested in Lexington. If the Flaggers can gather in a trailer park to celebrate the erection of a flag pole that will soon be obscured by spring foliage, they can go to Lexington. But they won’t.

Robert E. Lee deserves better. Really. What a shame.

    Wonder why such a restrained response?

    Oh, this must be the part where I make a comment about the Flagger’s ineptness and the flag that no one sees as it is lost in the greenery. Then associated Flaggers jump in and start snorting about new flags and ancestor worship and all kinds of claims with no historical basis whatsoever. \

    Come on Flaggers, get on board and make those false claims. Support your white supremacist leaders. Complain in capitals about how you really feel!

      Where are you in Missouri again, Jimmy Dick?

      • Jimmy Dick April 29, 2014 / 9:22 pm

        Northeast Missouri. We just had some racists burn a cross in Kirksville in the dark of the night showing their bravery. We’ve had KKK literature tossed out in yards in the tristate area under the cover of darkness. It’s odd how they don’t have the guts to come out in the daylight but then that’s how cockroaches are.

          Seriously, are you in Kirksville?

          Do you know who lives in Kirksville? I’m quite familiar with that place because of it has a very prominent resident.

            The infamous white trash racist scumbag who is pretty much useless. Alex Linder. Just another person who lies to people in order to keep alive a myth of white supremacy. He doesn’t know his history and he is one sick and twisted worthless piece of crap. He is an embarrassment to humanity.

            Here’s an interview with Alex Linder in Kirksville:

            Where do you teach in Kirksville? Truman State?

          • Jimmy Dick April 30, 2014 / 8:48 pm

            Why? Do you want to complain to the college that I make bad comments about racists and their lies about history?

          • Brad Griffin May 1, 2014 / 9:58 am

            I’m in St. Charles right now.

            I’m going to come up there and distribute some literature.

          • Jimmy Dick May 1, 2014 / 11:47 am

            TSU doesn’t tolerate racist literature. The student body doesn’t want people to lie to them. So you will get no reception from them. You might find some among people that hate America and want to destroy it so they can build a new Nazi paradise, but they will never accomplish that goal. So if you want to hang out with Nazis, go right ahead.

          • Brad Griffin May 1, 2014 / 8:34 pm

            All right.

            I’m going to come up there and distribute some League of the South literature while I am in Missouri. If I can find your class, I will hand out some to your students for they can be exposed to our point of view.

          • Jimmy Dick May 2, 2014 / 4:45 am

            Bring bail money. Your point of view is built upon lies and fiction. My students would laugh at you. Unlike you they value education and use it for to look for the truth. You use it to make up more lies to support evil. There will be a reckoning and you will not like the outcome, but that will be your choice.

    I see one of their respondents wants a form letter he can copy and paste as if it were his own. How typical–not bright enough to write his own letter and dishonest enough to take credit for another’s work.

  4. Brad Griffin April 29, 2014 / 5:42 pm

    The League of the South is considering going to Lexington. It depends on how the situation there evolves.

      This is a great idea. A group of black students complain about how the school attracts racists and white supremacists show up to protest against them. The only thing that could make it a better idea is if someone from Stromfront kicks the students’ property and ride off on their motorcycles with the licence plate on display and then brags about it online.

    They need to leave well enough alone. The University is handling this appropriately.
