Today, a group protesting the hasty and ultra-PC decision of South Carolina's governor to remove the Confederate battle flag from its place in front of the statehouse will unfurl the banner once again. Walt can't make it to Columbia but will be there in spirit!
The South Carolina Secessionist Party will fly the Confederate flag on a temporary pole for several hours, to mark the third anniversary of the removal of the honoured symbol of states' rights. The SCSP says it will go on doing so every July 10th, so that a year will not pass without the Glorious War of the Secession being memorialized.
The flag to be raised, shown in the picture at right, is not the Stars and Bars, as many people mistakenly think. It is a version of the battle flag of the Confederate armies, carried proudly by legion of young men who died for the cause. If you believe in the values these men died for, don't be afraid to display the flag on your cars or at your homes. The times they are a-changin', and (Walt hopes) the end of political correctness is in sight.
