Des Moines, IOWA – SAVE SOUTHERN HERITAGE, Inc. (SSH) will deliver a special message to the contenders in Thursday’s GOP Presidential Debate in Des Moines, Iowa in response to GOP complicity, apathy and cowardice in the destruction of Southern Heritage and Confederate symbols in South Carolina, Florida*, New Orleans, Austin**, Texas and across the South.
A plane trailing a 25’ X 40’ Confederate flag with the message: GOP LOSES W/O DIXIE ! SSHe.US will fly the afternoon of January 28th over the GOP Presidential Debate site and downtown Des Moines prior to the evening debate.
The order to Nikki Haley removing the Confederate Memorial flag from in front of the South Carolina Statehouse came from the very highest levels of the Republican National Committee. The strong-arming of SC GOP legislators to support Haley’s betrayal of the average South Carolina citizen was directed and coordinated by this same GOP elite.
“Let us fire this shot across the GOP bow, Haley is political poison!” said SSH Spokesman P. Charles Lunsford. “Add her to your Presidential nominee’s team at the cost of losing the Southern vote and the election,” warned Lunsford.
“The traditional Southern conservative voter base has loyally supported the GOP since Richard Nixon. Now that our symbols, heritage & culture are under intense attack by cultural Marxists, and in many cases abetted by GOP Quislings, the Grand OL Party is nowhere to be seen in helping the Southern People fight off this onslaught!” said Black Confederate activist and life-long Republican, H.K. Edgerton. “Our vote may no longer be taken for granted by the GOP,” Edgerton added.
SSH specially notes Presidential contender Jeb Bush’s callous disrespect for Florida’s historic veterans with his clandestine action as governor of removing the historical flags at the Florida Capitol in 2001. “Bush is the modern architect of the GOP’s Anti-Southern appeasement strategy. Do you wonder why so many Southerners will not support Jeb Bush for President?” quipped SSH Florida spokesman David McCallister. “Taking down the flags didn’t help Florida then, and these measures won’t help Florida now…and fair minded Floridians know it” McCallister added.
SAVE SOUTHERN HERITAGE Inc. is a 501 c(4) public welfare corporation that educates & advocates on behalf of Southern Heritage & History. It was started in 2015 in response to the knee-jerk Anti-Southern institutionalized bullying and “eracism” levied against the people of South Carolina by Governor Nikki Haley, after she broke all previous agreements about how South Carolina’s historical veterans and their symbols should be treated and respected.
SSH is organizing across the South.
* Today the Republican controlled Florida Senate Rules Committee voted to approve CS/SB 310 that would remove the statue of General Edmund Kirby Smith from Statuary Hall in the US Capitol.
** University of Texas President Greg Fenves removed statues of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and US President Woodrow Wilson from the South Mall of the UT campus.
Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in the hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity. History is not the relation of campaigns and battles and generals or other individuals, but that which shows the principles for which the South contended and which justified her struggle for those principles.Robert E.
