The Heritage War Never Ends Here in the South – But Not in the Way You Think
… by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor … and the Virginia Flaggers
Historical symbols of the South continue to be removed by the scourge of political correctness. Buildings donated to various entities with promises to preserve them, those promises have been broken when they were wanted for expansion.
The newer scam is where they redecorate, and when done items like the Confederate memorial flags are gone. They have done this in Virgina, even from the Confederate Memorial Chapel.
That’s right. Despite Confederate Veterans are officially American veterans by Act of Congress, this still goes on as twisted form of monument vandalism and grave desecration. I have all the Congressional Acts history in this April, 2001, article…Confederate Soldiers are American Veterans by Act of Congress.
What kills the PC crowd even more is to see ‘multi-color’ protestors outside, doing what we call ‘flagging’. They have been imprinted with the KKK, lynching, and racism. Everything else about the South, none of that matters. This is all just part of the dumbing down of America, and it has gone way beyond the schools.
The main line veterans org have done little or nothing to support Confederate veterans despite all the military bases named after them and hordes of America’s war heroes having come from the South. The people, and these groups, have not yet figured out that they have shown themselves to be counterfeits really. And of course they would never admit it.
When I talk to them about why they do it, do nothing really, they will admit they are intimidated by getting trashed by the Civil Rights bullies.
Mind you these are military people admitting that the threat of their being called names is enough to have them leave American veterans being smeared in public, in front of young people, teaching them that his is politically correct behavior. It is a pitiful situation.
Va Flaggers Report/Call To Action
On Thursday, July 25th, 5 Flaggers would gather on the Boulevard in what would turn out to be a VERY eventful afternoon/evening. The weather was gorgeous in the Capital of the Confederacy, and Scalawags and Carpet Baggers got an eye and earful of Confederate Flags.
Our Flaggers were cursed at and taunted…not by the usual suspects…but by a Scalawag member of one of our own Heritage Organizations!
Next we had the rare opportunity to flag Alex Nyerges, the Director of the VMFA and the man ultimately responsible for removing the Battle Flags from the Confederate Memorial Chapel, up close and IN PERSON.
We called out to Nyerges, who at first responded pleasantly, and then beat a hasty retreat when asked “why won’t you just put the flags back on the Chapel!?!?!”
Finally, we had the opportunity to send a message to Museum officials via one of the museum guards, who engaged our Flaggers in a discussion about the violations and illegal acts that have occurred.
Along the way, we were able to talk to folks about the VMFA and their discriminatory acts, and in defense of our honorable Confederate ancestors… forwarding the colors…and CHANGING HEARTS AND MINDS! The gentleman pictured above stopped to ask what we were up to. When he heard our story, he asked to take a photo with us.
RETURN THE FLAGS! RESTORE THE HONOR!
[Note: This event has passed by these folks will be flagging till Hell freezes over. You can call if you are in the area of contact the museum director. Remember to be polite. The other side makes nasty phone calls and event threats, and attribute them to Confederates, and age old trick.]
JOIN US Saturday, July 27th, on the Boulevard as we forward the colors and take a stand for our ancestors and the flags under which they fought and died.
If you cannot be physically present, please take a moment out of your day to call or write the Director of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) and let him know how you feel about the forced removal of Confederate Battle Flags from the Confederate War Memorial Chapel.
Contact Alex Nyerges: [email protected] or by phone (804) 340-1504 or FAX (804) 340-1502
Since October 1, 2011, the Va Flaggers have been steadfast in our purpose, which is to RESTORE THE CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAGS to the Confederate Memorial Chapel on the grounds of the Old Soldiers Home in Richmond Va, which were forcibly removed by officials of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, a State Agency.
We are resolved and will stand firm in this fight, in the same manner as our honorable ancestors.
We WILL NOT be moved. We WILL NOT retreat. We WILL NOT be pressured to change our methods, demands, or mission to suit the wishes of others who refuse to join the fight.
The flags WILL fly on the Chapel again, and the honor and valor of the Confederate Soldier WILL NOT be forgotten in Richmond, VA.
