What I've learned the past few hours looking into the tempest in a teapot created by the heritage-hatin' bloggosphere.
1. Contrary to an anonymous post at yet another hate-blog, the Virginia Flaggers have not been "rocked" by the news about Sulser.
2. Sulser never was a VaFlagger and never claimed to be. He has never been a "prominent face" or a "regular fixture" at Flagger events. There are hundreds, probably thousands, of photos taken at Virginia Flagger events and posted online that show neither hide nor hair of Jason Sulser.
3. The second anonymous blogger posted this grammatically convoluted false accusation: Despite pronouncements that they are not a hate group, it is Sulser, along with his friend League of the South’s Dennis Durham, who organizes the rallies in the state of Virginia that the Flaggers attend.
Who's pronouncements? The Flaggers themselves have no need to make such pronouncements about themselves; one need but look at their activities to see they are no hate group. Sulser and Dennis Durham did have a group called S.O.U.T.H. They did organize rallies in Fredericksburg. For the most part, Flaggers stayed away. Most events Flaggers attended were their own, or those of groups like the Heritage Preservation Assocation, the Tomato Festival and other such venues.
The anonymous blogger who made this accusation needs to list all the Virginia rallies Sulser and Durham organized, and identify the ones the VaFlaggers attended. But I won't hold my breath while waiting.
