“HONORABLE PEOPLE PURSUING A JUST AND CIVIL SOCIETY DO NOT SEEK TO DISHONOR AND MARGINALIZE THE HERITAGE AND SYMBOLS OF OTHERS”

“The right to define the meaning of the Confederate Battle Flag or any flag belongs to those who by their history and shed blood own its heritage.  Radical and lawless groups often display the United States flag, but this does not change its true meaning to fair-minded people.  Nor should fair-minded people rightly associate the Confederate Battle Flag with evil because the very same groups expropriate and display it.  No media or self-appointed social designers have the right to define the meaning of the Confederate flags.  The base impropriety of redefining and slandering someone else’s heritage and symbols is incredibly arrogant and stirs up needless strife.  Honorable people pursuing a just and civil society do not seek to dishonor and marginalize the heritage and symbols of others.  The Confederate Battle Flag ought to be the honored heritage of every Southerner and every American.  No cowardice or indifference should allow it to be trampled under the heels of uninformed busybodies and political correctness police.”
