I'm trying to get a handle on this story and all that I am observing is erratic behavior on your blog - there are no straight answers to anything. Are you not the spokesperson? Why would a small Virginia group put up a symbol that serves to inflame so many individuals? Common sense would dictate that one does not do this, unless their goal is to create unrest.No other country has flags flying from civil wars that have taken place because it is a symbol of treason and loss.
Connie, I certainly don't mean to be presumptuous, but perhaps a thread dedicated to comparing the racist statements of Abraham Lincoln and Matthew Heimbach? Or should we just post them here. Either way, Heimbach will come across far less racist than Lincoln.
Honey, if you want to reinforce what you already believe, and aren't interested in both sides of the issue, stick with flogger blogs, okay? If your leftist beliefs are deeply ingrained, it is likely you wouldn't understand it if somebody took the time to explain it to you.
Unity, that flag only served to inflame those who are truly intolerant, hateful and bigoted. If any unrest happens it will be because of people who refuse to see the truth in favor of accepting blindly the same view of that flag as white supremacists, Leftists and other dregs of society.
Austin, be presumptous. If you'd like to do a guest post like that, post it as a comment and I'll make it into a blog post.
I will take you up on the invitation.
The Voices of White Supremacy. Who Said It."I am opposed to negro citizenship in any and every form.I believe this Government was made on the white basis. I believe it was made by white men for the benefit of white men and their posterity for ever, and I am in favor of confining citizenship to white men, men of European birth and descent, instead of conferring it upon negroes, Indians, and other inferior races."A. Abraham LincolnB. Jefferson DavisC. Stephen DouglasD. Alexander StephehsE. Matthew Heimbach"Do you desire to strike out of our State Constitution that clause which keeps slaves and free negroes out of the State, and allow the free negroes to flow in, and cover your prairies with blacksettlements? Do you desire to turn this beautiful State into a free negro colony..."A. Abraham LincolnB. Jefferson DavisC. Stephen DouglasD. Alexander StephehsE. Matthew Heimbach"... I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, [applause]-that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race..."A. Abraham LincolnB. Jefferson DavisC. Stephen DouglasD. Alexander StephehsE. Matthew Heimbach"...We profess to have no taste for running and catching niggers, at least I profess no taste for that job at all.."A. Abraham LincolnB. Jefferson DavisC. Stephen DouglasD. Alexander StephehsE. Matthew Heimbach"... he goes on and eliminates, or draws out, from my speech this tendency of mine to set the States at war with one another, to make all the institutions uniform, and set the niggers and white people to marrying together.A. Abraham LincolnB. Jefferson DavisC. Stephen DouglasD. Alexander StephehsE. Matthew Heimbach"...the nigger will never disturb the country again..."A. Abraham LincolnB. Ulysess S. GrantC. Jefferson DavisD. Robert E. LeeE. Matthew Heimbach"...we do not like negroes, we do not disguise our dislike.."A. Ohio Senator John ShermanB. Georgia Governor Joeseph BrownC. Abraham LincolnD. Jefferson DavisE. Matthew Heimbach"if Black students have a student Union on Campus, aren't White students also entitled to a Student Union on campus..."A. Abraham LincolnB. Jefferson DavisC. Alexander StephensD. Andrew JohnsonE. Matthew Heimbach"...There is no danger that the people of Kentucky will shoulder their muskets, and, with a young nigger stuck on every bayonet, march into Illinois and force them upon us..."A. Abraham LincolnB. Jefferson DavisC. Alexander StephensD. Andrew JohnsonE. Matthew Heimbach"...if I ever came across someone who was being robbed or raped, I would want to do my best to protect the innocent..."A. Abraham LincolnB. Jefferson DavisC. Alexander StephensD.

Why do Leftists waste time hating on the Confederate flag when I've seen loads more hate on the 20th century American flag, if not hating the latter more, actually? You know, how the media loves to show on the Today show of libtards burning American flags?
