Quote of the Week: August 30 – September 5, 2015

Susan Hathaway declared last Monday (August 31):

As the blood descendant of Confederate soldiers, we are the only ones with the right to say where and when OUR flags will fly…and I will fly whatever flag I want…wherever I want.

Discuss.🙂

    Her straw man is nicely stuffed. But still a straw man.

    Um, you already get to do that, Susan. Not sure what the problem is in that regard.

    As a “blood descendent” of said soldiers, I say “nope”.

    She may want to discuss things with Goad, he seems to take a different view of the flag and he has 12 Confederate ancestors.

      She would have to actually show up at the VMFA for that, so don’t count on it.

        Very true, but she did show up in Washington DC to be seen standing in solidarity with John C. Hall…Racist CPA from Dublin Ga.

    As the blood descendant of Confederate soldiers, I say you are full of it. You get to control displays on YOUR property. No where else.

    Once again, a desperate cry for psychological help. Let us look at the membership of the heritage groups and compare that with the number of people not in the heritage groups. I think it is pretty safe to say the heritage group folks are outnumbered by millions of people descended from Confederates. They are not flying the battle rag and as we have seen, they think it belongs in the museum. Down it comes and off to the museum it goes.

    I would wager that Susan has a definition of Confederate ancestor that will miraculously limit the number of people who would qualify as descendants.

    She can fly the rag any time she wants people to see a ignorant racist advertising their ignorance and racism.

    “As the blood descendant of Confederate soldiers,” shouldn’t she fly a white flag?

      Maybe she can take her robe and hood and make a nice flag .

    That should be part of their talking points guide for outreach to Virginia’s growing Asian and Latino populations.

    Enough men in blue fought to make damn sure that damn rag NEVER flew in Washington during the war other than as a war trophy!
