Put together well, a slick presentation.
I don't agree with the over all message you send, but all in all it's better than the others I go to.
You asked a question ----
"In closing I would like to ask one question, and one question only; what do you (Southern Heritage defenders who wield the flag) lose if the flag is relegated to historical sites, museums, and the classroom?"
How about my First Amendment Rights ?
" 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."
I underlined the section that relates to the VA Flaggers (and myself).
You cannot take away our right to protest peacefully, and relegating the CBF to museums would do so.
How about my ability to Honor my ancestors, who fought against an invading army ?
I don't feel relegating the CBF to a museum or historical site is the proper thing to do.
I for one would love to see the CBF shown in more classrooms, not on belt buckles or T-Shirts, but in FAIR comparison to it's true meaning and use, with the Hi-Jacked images the KKK and skin heads use.
I ain't gonna put it away.
