More From the Heritage of Hate

Word comes from Atlanta that several Confederate flags popped up at Ebenezer Baptist Church and the Martin Luther King Historic Site, where the civil rights leader was buried.

And so the exchanges continue, with damage being done to Confederate monuments and reports of a series of incidents (several of them videotaped) of people going after Confederate flags, stealing them, defacing monuments, and so on. All of this is counterproductive, foolish, and wrong … not just some of this, as someone from Pensacola insists on her hate blog.

As she declares: “I haven’t seen where Simpson condemned or disapproved of threats to people and damage to property connected with the war on Confederate heritage.” I guess she overlooked the posts about “Anonymous CSA,” where someone made threats due to the current controversy. But in the screecher’s world, #onlyConfederateheritagematters.

Nor is she a careful reader … but enough with such tripe.

Someone please explain to me how what happened at Atlanta reflects paying homage to the service of Confederate soldiers. You would think that if the Sons of Confederate Veterans deplores the incorrect use of the Confederate flag, the new chief of heritage operations would be on this in a flash.

I suspect we’ll hear someone declare this is a “false flag operation.” We’ll see.

    As I always say, they are their own worst enemy and they are too damned stupid to realize it. They shame the Confederacy and the South.

      Sounds just like the Confederacy itself; the C.S. was its own worst enemy. They started the war to keep their slaves, but their thick prejudiced bigotry prevented them from using them as soldiers (even as Union troops were closing in on Richmond in 1865) when doing so it would have won them the war, and as a result, they lost the war and their slaves were freed.

    A juvenile act to be sure, designed to inflame passion among the black community of Atlanta. I hope that the people of Atlanta react in the spirit of Dr. King and protest this act in a peaceful manner.
    As far as respect for the Confederate Flag goes these two guys showed little. Laying the flag on the ground, where any right-minded person could walk upon it and use it as a doormat, would be considered desecretation in most quarters.
