Quote of the Week: June 29-July 5, 2014

This comes from a member of our favorite Confederate heritage group:

The National Park Service has long been the spokesman for the Communist administration of the United States Government. That is one reason that no reputable reenactment unit will have anything to do with events help by the NPS. The mistake was made by allowing the occupation government to own any of our sacred battlefields. Every last one of them should have been deeded to the Commonwealth of Virginia if the battlefield was located on Virginia soil.

Sure.

    At some point, this hatred and their lies will end badly.

    “Every last one of them should have been deeded to the Commonwealth of Virginia if the battlefield was located on Virginia soil.”

    Given the way the Flaggers carp incessantly about how the Commonwealth of Virginia and its various administrative components handle Confederate heritage issues — the VMFA, the sesquicentennial “Custermobile,” Confederate Heritage Day, and so on — this has got to be the most un-self-aware thing I’ve read this week. Someone needs to get this person a script, pronto.

    What planet do these guys and gals live on? We should have kept troops in the South as long as we did in Germany. Too bad Grant did not seek that third term as some wanted. Hayes sold out!

    Wow. That is simply awesome–like Neil DeGrasse Tyson-Cosmos-level awesome–in its pathology. It’s like a nebula of delusion. Are not these people becoming a parody of themselves?

    Let’s do a little reality check here. Virginia had more than a half-century to preserve most of the battlefields now preserved by the NPS. It most cases, it did little or nothing to preserve many of them.

    Let us remember that the sacred ground of The Crater at Petersburg was being used as a golf course by Virginians.

    Travel to Fredericksburg and look at the four major battlefields preserved by the NPS. Now look at the battlefield areas outside the NPS boundaries under Virginia’s jurisdiction to see how the state would have treated the land.

      But you forgot that the Virginia Flaggers hoisted a flag somewhere in the area. I’ve had reports that the second flag is as hard to see from the interstate as the first, and of course it’s the flag flown in support of segregation and white supremacy, not the flag of the Army of Northern Virginia … and it’s in territory often controlled by Yankees. We now call it the Burnside Flag, to distinguish it from the Butler Flag flying low to the ground in Chester.

    The NPS is preserving these battlefields and that’s a good thing. Why can’t these flaggers be happy about that?

      That is because the NPS is no longer giving the incorrect interpretation of the Civil War to people.

        Exactly! They have a lot of psychic investment in the Lost Cause mythology, which unfortunately a lot of my Yankee friends still believe. But, I’m correcting the record one Yankee at a time.
