Virginia Heritage Group announces plans for Battle Flag at Richmond

A grass roots group that came together to protest the removal of the Confederate Battle Flag from the Museum of the Confederacy’s outside display has taken the offensive keeping a vigil outside the establishment for over a year and now they plan to take it a step further. Rawstory.Com reports:

“In a message on the Free North Carolina website, Susan Hathaway explained that the group Virginia Flaggers would begin installing the flag next week.

“The Va Flaggers are THRILLED to announce that we have finalized a lease to acquire property adjacent to Interstate 95, just South of Richmond, and will be erecting a 50’ pole, on which a 10 x15 Confederate Battle Flag will fly 24/7, 365 days of the year,” Hathaway wrote. “The flag will serve to welcome visitors and commuters to Richmond, and remind them of our honorable Confederate history and heritage.”

They say dynamite comes in small packages and the Virginia Flaggers Susan Hathaway is the perfect example. She is a reminder of the defiant nature and fighting spirit that our Southern ladies exhibited during and after the War of Southern Independence.

Below is a video report from WRIC.Com. It is interesting to note the difference in the way that Virginia Flaggers members Susan Hathaway and Karen Cooper conduct themselves and make their argument for the flag in contrast to the arguments made by Virginia NAACP representative… eh hem , King Salim Khalfani.

  1. King Salim Khalfani, clearly his family goes way back. Is he from the Boston Khalfanis or the Charleston?
