Tennessee denies Metro Council Request

Forrest
The state of Tennessee has denied the request of Nashville’s Metro Council to plant trees and vegetation to block the view of a 25 ft Nathan Bedford Forrest statue on Interstate 65.

John Schroer, informed the council on Monday, saying “TDOT (Tennessee Department of Transportation) does not plant foliage on its right-of-way with the sole intention of blocking items on private property based on what might be offensive to some and not to others. Therefore, the request of Metro Nashville’s Council to have TDOT plant vegetation on I-65 near the Harding Place Exit is respectfully denied.”

Finally, some common sense.

In other news, we know who the haters and criminals really are:

Earlier this month, the Silent Sam memorial, a Civil War monument featuring a stoic Confederate soldier hoisting a rifle, was vandalized on the periphery of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill’s campus. Vandals spray painted the statue with the words, “Murderer,” “KKK” and “Black Lives Matter.”

In June, statues of three Confederate leaders at the University of Texas’ Austin campus were spray painted with “Black Lives Matter.” The statues were of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America, Gen. Robert E. Lee, and Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston.

Confederate Flag Supporters At Theme Park

Stone Mountain Rally

Stone Mountain Rally


Confederate battle flag supporters began gathering early Saturday morning at Stone Mountain Park, east of the Georgia capitol, with battle flags flying proudly.

The rally comes a few days after Gov. Nathan Deal told Atlanta lawmakers he opposes any makeover to Stone Mountain’s carving, which include the faces of three of our honorable Confederate generals, and a few weeks after the battle flag was removed from the South Carolina Statehouse.

Mississippi Burning (Flag)

Bob Comans Flag

Bob Comans Flag


It appears more than a squirrel has gone berserk in the sleepy little town of Pascagoula lately. Bob Coman found his Mississippi state flag burned and laying in his driveway along with the words “Blacks Rule”.

Hate Crime

Hate Crime

Neighbors, friends, and people who didn’t even know Bob have come forward to help, donating a new flag, scrubbing the graffiti off, and letting him know they stand with him.

Police are unsure if this is a hate crime as of yet, and we’d have to agree. Both words were spelled correctly, and the printing was neatly done. We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out.

A neighbor, Kayla Buckner, says she saw a car approach the house, then slow down. She heard one black male say “Nah, eff that” and then start shooting.

Alek said the shooters yelled an expletive about the flag before firing the shots into the home.

Confederate flag in Rockbridge County

20x30 Battle Flag

20×30 Battle Flag


Raymond Agnor’s gigantic 20-by-30-foot Confederate Battle Flag flies proudly from its 80-foot pole on Billboard Hill, just north of Lexington. It is one of three huge flags placed on private property in the Lexington area by the Virginia Flaggers, a pro-Confederacy group.

Raymond, fed up with the antics of the anti-Southren, anti-confederacy liberal democrats and various ne’er-do-wells, decided to take out an ad in The News-Gazette addressing his concerns.

“About the Confederate Flag,” the ad stated. “Because of all the trouble the democrats and black race are causing, I place this ad. No black people or democrats are allowed on my property until further notice.”

Mr. Agnor makes no apologies for flying his flag or for the ad, stating “I don’t want them on my property because I have seen what they did in Baltimore and Ferguson and other places.”

Good for you Mr. Agnor! Stand your ground and don’t back down.

New NC law protects Confederate memorials and other monuments

Gov Pat McCrory

Gov Pat McCrory


Gov. Pat McCrory signed a controversial historical monuments bill that had passed the House earlier in the week.

The bill sets the authority for removing monuments deemed to commemorate “an event, person or military service that is part of North Carolina’s history.” It will take an act of the General Assembly to remove such a monument, instead of the what the Democrats wanted…local authority to do so.

We say this is a step in the right direction in protecting our heritage.

Ohio State Fair bans Confederate Flag Merchandise

Ohio State Fair

Ohio State Fair


General Manager Virgil L. Strickler told vendors in a letter on Thursday. “… beginning with the 2015 Ohio State Fair, the sale or display of Confederate flags and/or Confederate flag merchandise shall be prohibited.”

Although there have been complaints about Confederate merchandise being sold in the past, organizers wanted to be pro-active about hate.

According to vendor contracts, organizers can take down any displays they find offensive, as well as stop any activity they may find controversial.

I would think boycotting these state Fairs around the country until officials get their heads out of their asses might be appropriate.

Kentucky State Fair takes stand against Confederate flag

Kentucky State Fair

Kentucky State Fair


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s state fair board and its parks department have taken stands against the sale of Confederate battle flag merchandise.

The fair board voted Thursday to prohibit the sale or giveaway of items displaying the battle flag. The ban applies to the state fairgrounds and a Louisville convention center the fair board operates.

NAACP leader Raoul Cunningham says the action represents progress against “hate literature.”

Can’t give any flag away? Banned from the property? Hate literature? This country has gone absolutely batty.

Bexar County Texas Removes Confederate Plaques

Confederate memorial plaques removed

Confederate memorial plaques removed


Four plaques displaying Confederate symbols have officially been removed from the Bexar County Courthouse.
On Tuesday, Bexar County commissioners voted unanimously to take down the four plaques at the courthouse for displaying Confederate symbols. They removed them under cover of night, before midnight.

While they knew some where offended by them, Bexar Heritage Programs Director Bette Bueche said they had heard people were “fearful” of them. Seriously? Fearful of commemorative plaques? We wonder how many people they have attacked in the past to make people fear them.

The stupidity in this country has gotten out of control, as well as the apologist attitudes.
