Could not be more disappointed in the decision of MS State to remove our state flag from campus.
I see our Governor was quoted in the article. However, we need people in leadership who will make the firm calls to these state agencies reminding them that they work for the people of MS and that the flag will remain or there’ll be strong repercussions.
Caving to political correctness will never result in long term positive gains.
Two MS Universities Remove State Flag | Mississippi PEP
By MississippI PEP Staff | August 31st, 2016 at 1:12 pm
Mississippi State University and the Mississippi University for Women confirmed Tuesday that they removed the flag from outdoor flagpoles over the summer. The universities’ actions came after state lawmakers failed to act on changing the flag this year.
“The university community supports a flag that unites everyone in the state behind it,” said Jim Borsig, president of the Mississippi University for Women.
Delta State University is the only public Mississippi university still flying the flag. A statement from that school Tuesday opened the door to removing it if the university cabinet votes to do so.
Gov. Phil Bryant told reporters Tuesday that he disagrees with the universities’ decision to remove the flag. He cited a state law calling for Mississippi’s flag to “receive all of the respect and ceremonious etiquette given the American flag” if displayed. The law doesn’t require public agencies to fly the flag. K-12 schools are required to, but some ignore it.
“Whether you like the flag or not, the state law calls for it to be treated with equal respect,” Bryant said.

We’re facing attacks on our flags over and over. And believe me – taking our flags away from public places and erasing the heroes’ names from our history is jus…t the beginning. Just like attacks on our Second Amendment, the war on flags is nothing but a step to tyranny. We’ll never give away our flags, our guns and our faith. God bless our America and every sacred symbol of our country.

BIG HELL YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Houston takes action on schools named for Confederate leaders.
The governing board of the biggest school district in Texas has voted to rename seven schools pr…eviously named for Confederate leaders.
The Houston school district board voted Thursday to strip the schools of the names of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee, Albert Sidney Johnston and Stonewall Jackson; Confederate President Jefferson Davis; Confederate Postmaster General John H. Reagan; Sabine Pass commander Dick Dowling and Southern dialect author and Confederate veteran Sidney Lanier.
What_a_f***g_disgrace! The governing board? More like a bunch of ignorant liberals! People who have no respect towards American history shouldn’t be deciding on schools names.
When it embarked on the renaming process, the district said it wanted names to represent its modern values and diversity, in accordance with its non-discrimination policies. Okay, guess forgetting our history and spitting on it is now equal to “modern values and diversity”. Smh
South will rise again. We won’t tolerate treason and we’ll do the very best we can to fight liberal plague or to simple secede from the failed state America has turned into.
Kimberly Hopkins-Hesse Hubby and I pulled over on I-65 North of Montgomery, Alabama we were coming back from Florida because I-75 N & S is traffic wise freaking CRAZY!!!! Anyway it was because when I saw this flag I had to photograph it! It was clearly marked that it was flying over a Confederate Veteran’s Cemetery! I DO NOT THINK IT IS RACIST AT ALL! The Veterans that have their lives that lay in that Hallowed Ground HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE THEIR FLAG FLYING OVER THEM FOR IN HISTORY THE SIDE THEY DID FIGHT!!! HELLLLOOOO, like it or not the Civil War IS PART OF AMERICAN HISTORY! More Men and Women died in the Civil War then all other Wars before or since! I’m saying Revolutionary War, War of 1812, WWI, WWII, KOREA, VIETNAM, DESERT STORM, and the WAR IN IRAQ & AFGHANISTAN NOW!!! So these Confederate Veterans have the Right to have their Historical Flag above them in Flight! So let the Stars & Bars FLY FREE!! Seems only RIGHT TO ME! After all IT IS PART OF OUR HISTORY! Sad Yes, True! But IT HAPPENED I SAY UNTO YOU!!! Maybe it is just me, but those Veterans have the RIGHT TO HAVE THE STARS & BARS FLYING FREE!!! Kimberly Hopkins-Hesse. 👍🏻

H.K. Edgerton, Human Rights Defender
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
~First Amendment of the United States Constitution
One cannot have a website on Black Confederate Soldiers without recognizing the contributions of Mr. H. K. Edgerton. Setting aside any division between H. K. Edgerton and the NAACP, the best definition to describe Mr. Edgerton is Human Rights Defender. H. K. Edgerton has walked across this nation defending the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution through Confederate marches, rallies, Civil War re-enactments, state and local political gatherings as well as educational events.
As an example, when you donate to PEN American Center and English PEN, you support the freedom to write across this world. Journalists are imprisoned in other countries for standing on the opposite side of particular governments. Our 21st Century United States officials and soldiers fight daily for the release of journalists from foreign prisons.
However, we in America are building virtual prisons and walls. We ostracize others who disagree with our opinions. We set them aside and treat them like the medieval town jester. However, if we as a society would only pause, we can gain better understanding of each other’s opinions while protecting the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution.
During the War Between the States, the United States Flag and the national Confederate States of America Flag looked too similar for soldiers across the battlefield. Confederate soldiers were unintentionally emerging from the horizons into Union territory; as a result, Confederate soldiers were being killed because they could not distinguish the two flags from a distance. For our students—in American football, we call this a touchback. Therefore, the Confederate Battle Flag was created and adopted for visual clarity.
The moment one understands the origin of the Confederate Battle Flag, Mr. H. K. Edgerton arises as a Human Rights Defender. We in America have virtually imprisoned those who truly want to preserve the chronicles of Confederate States Army history. The number of people marching on Main Street displaying the Confederate Battle Flag is no longer in proportion with the number of people who display the Confederate Battle Flag at their homes. Some United States schools prohibit students from wearing Confederate Battle Flag emblems. Some citizens cannot fly the Confederate Battle Flag on their own property due to neighborhood homeowner association covenants. Here is the hypocrisy. Anti-Confederate groups denounce the Confederate Battle Flag but accept the national Confederate States of America Flag which displays gloriously across America. Is America losing her splendor?
Again, to H. K. Edgerton, who defends daily the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution, and to our United States Arm Forces, I am truly grateful

I AM WITH THE SOUTH…
“I am with the South in life or in death, in victory or in defeat . . . I believe the North is about to wage a brutal and unholy war on a people who have done them no wrong, in violation of the Constitution and the fundamental principles of government. They no longer acknowledge that all government derives its validity from the consent of the governed. They are about to inv…ade our peaceful homes, destroy our property, and inaugurate a servile insurrection, murder our men and dishonor our women. We propose no invasion of the North, no attack on them, and only ask to be left alone.” Major General Patrick Cleburne C.S.A.
Seems some things never change… Again all we want is to be left alone…

Well Lookie what we have here.
Circa 1990 it reads Garland TX
way before stupid people took over the country…I like the fact that a black man is playing the… part of a Confederate officer.. Well done.. What always amazes me is how little liberals and Northerners know about the old traditional Southern culture.. There was more understanding and cooperation between the races than the average Yankee will ever know.. The blacks were and are critical to Southern heritage.. Why else would black men fight for the Confederacy?? To maintain slavery??? I think not…
GETTYSBURG, Pa. — A local Veterans Confederate group is set to host the first Confederate Flag Day in Gettysburg.
The event, set to take place March 5, was appr…oved by the National Park Service Tuesday.
This comes less than a year after the bookstore at Gettysburg National Military Park stopped selling Confederate flag items.
“It’s not about hatred, you have all those folks out there that try to say that,” veteran Buddy Clark said.
