What’s with all the Flags?

Have you seen them? It would be hard to miss these days, but the Confederate Battle Flag has made a triumphant return to Marble Hill, though granted they are not on stationary flag poles.

Nope these flags are being flown proudly by young men from Marble Hill on makeshift flagpoles that have been granted the gift of mobility, via the drivers’ pick up trucks.

Mainstream media would no doubt sensationalize this story by  quoting {verbatim} from the SPLC website but you will not read that kind of trivial hype from the Marble Hill Constitution-News. There will be no hunt for a Klansman around every corner, mainly because there aren’t any!

In fact the MH Constitution-News would like to commend these young men for showing their Southern pride and taking a stand for our heritage.

These days it is open season on our history, historical markers, statues and events that celebrate  Southern honor, history and heroes.

Take for instance the City of Lexington, Va, which recently voted to ban the Confederate flag during its annual celebration of Robert E.Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

If the young people of Lexington, Va. had taken the initiative to display the symbols of our heritage in the manner in which the young people of Marble Hill are doing , perhaps it would not have “caved” to the calls of a mere 300 elitist liberals to abolish them.

    To quote Maxine Waters,
    Those “mere 300 elitist liberals” can all straight to hell!!

  2. Some of these same young men taped this flag to my locker and terrorized me in high school. I don’t blame the flag, but it isn’t a coincidence that these idiots would call me nigger. The flag is associated with historical mistreatment of blacks, just like the swastika is associated with the slaying of millions of Jews.

    Leave it to a ridiculous publication out of Marble Hill to commend these idiots. Here’s a pro tip for your editors… you aren’t reporting news objectively. Your opinion is littered all over this piece, destroying your nonexistent journalistic integrity. Well done.

    • Cody,

      Perhaps you should click on the links provided in the article. In addition I would suggest that you read the information found in this link: http://www.pointsouth.com/csanet/confederate_flag.htm
      but something tells me you won’t and something tells you that the only thing you would find suitably objective in this publication would be for me to condemn these young men for being proud of their heritage. Marble Hill is a nice place to live and raise a family, to blatantly condemn the town without knowing says much about your “objectivity”.

  3. Aldermanlacy the blue chevy is my truck and I ran across this a few years ago and just wanted to comment about what you wrote in this made my day when I seen it. And I don’t know that Cody guy but people have turned the rebel flag into racism when its not. And what ticks me off is that people fail to see is that’s blacks were also owned under the American flag back in the slavery days. I don’t look at the rebel flag as that. I’m from the south and going to show my pride…
