Confederate Flag Raised to Honor Those Who Fought; NAACP Says It Honors Slavery

AmmoLand Gun News

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)-  A Confederate flag flies at mile marker 134 on Interstate 95 in Virginia, raised by the Virginia Flaggers “to honor the 246,000 Confederate soldiers who fought in separate battles in the Fredericksburg vicinity during the Civil War,” according to Fox News.

They see the flag as a symbol of “pride, not racism.”

However, they are being countered by the NAACP, which says the flag does symbolize “racism, oppression… [and] reminds people of slavery.”

Virginia Flaggers’ Barry Isenhour told The Washington Post that “he doesn’t think of the flag as a symbol of a fight to preserve slavery because” he doesn’t think the Civil War was over slavery to begin with. Rather, Isenhour said the Confederates were fighting against “Northern aggression.

Stafford County spokeswoman Cathy Vollbrecht said there have been numerous “complaints and inquiries” about the flag, but there are no plans to take it down. She said her office determined that “no laws have been violated.”

What do you think? Is this a nod to slavery or tribute to Confederate civil war soldiers?

      Get over it, the war of northern aggression was not about Slavery, it was about UN FAIR tax’s, Northern states above the Masson Dixon line paid the standard 20% tax.

      The states below the Mason Dixon line paid 43%. As I recall this special moment in time was called the “Madison Tax.”

      And just what was the 1776 moment all about again? Something about UNFAIR tax’s?

      Northern states such as New York, Maine and that special bastion of freedom MASSaCHEWSit, Rouge Island all still had slaves held by there states leaders right up until after the war was well over.

      When will the American people wake up, to what has been done to them, this event in TIME was a key turning point.
      As in the Original 13th Amendment, 1812 – freed everyone, the FAKE 13th Amendment enslaved everyone. HELLO…

      NO MAN or BEAST should ever own any Humans for any reason, as it breaks all rule’s of nature.

      You all may wish to look into just whom it was that was the Money backing of the
      “SLAVE TRADE.”
      What you will find is its the same special bankers who are creating all the very problems we face today. { Rothschilds.} Now talk about the WOW factor.

      Do Humans ever learn anything?

      Peace Shalom

        Interesting :grin:

        That “missing” proposal was called the “Titles of Nobility Amendment” (or TONA). It sought to ban any American citizen from receiving any foreign title of nobility or receiving foreign favors, such as a pension, without congressional approval. The penalty was loss of citizenship.

        It was an extension of Article I, Section 9, of the Constitution, which doesn’t allow a public office holder to receive a foreign title or similar honors without the consent of Congress.
