“The Confederate Memorial Flag did not cause the Charleston Massacre and has no relevance to this act of hatred.
Most folks attacking the Flag are not even SC citizens. They came here to promote hatred, racism, and divisiveness rather than peace and unity as we do.
No acts of vandalism have been perpetrated on any African-American monuments in SC. The Confederate Monument was defaced. We will not stoop to such a cowardly act.
SC had both Black and White Confederate Soldiers. SCV and the Flag honors all of them with no distinction.
We vote, so do our families, friends, and neighbors.
Call your representatives. House lobby phone 803-734-2402 Senate lobby floor 803-212-6700. A secretary will answer. Tell her to get a message to your rep. She will write message and give it to a page who will deliver to the floor. Message should say I trust you will do what is right to protect SC heritage and history (use your own words). We must flood them with our remarks. We need to blow these phone lines up.
We must do this. I know I can depend on you to do your part to save our ancestor’s flag
