Alan West Buckdances …Again

Alan West is a traitor and disgrace to the US Army. They essentially threw his ass out for his criminal behavior.

So wrapping himself in the flag and uniform is like Benedict Arnold wearing the uniform of the Continental Army.

This Lawn Jockey is a real piece of work.

 

Lexington, Va. Bans Confederates From Flying Flags Using Public Property

The “Flag battle” erupts again. This one seems a rather sensible approach, which is that you can’t use public facilities, such as light poles to fly the confederate flag. Otherwise, people can carry the flag, hang it from private buildings, or display it any way they like…

Sensible in that the government shouldn’t be providing a resting place to celebrate the confederate flag, any more than it should for the Nazi Flag, or the Rising Sun.

Of course, being sensible doesn’t mean it won’t cause a firestorm – especially here in the lower Shenandoah Valley where two of the icons of the confederate cause in Virginia are buried, and pro-confederate history and sentiments run deep.

Crypts...Good Places for Dead confederates and Their Cause.

Virginia city limits Confederate flag flying in burial place of Robert Lee, Stonewall Jackson

A rural Virginia city where Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson are buried voted to limit the flying of the Confederate flag on poles on several downtown streets.

The 4-1 vote Thursday night by the Lexington City Council allows only the Virginia, U.S. and city flags to be displayed. Personal displays of the flag are not affected.

About 100 people led by the Sons of Confederate Veterans rallied before the vote. They then showed up in force to speak to city council to dissuade them from enacting the ordinance.

Some residents complained that the flag is a symbol of the South’s history of slavery and shouldn’t be endorsed by the city.

After the vote, the Sons said they would legally challenge the flag ban in the city of 7,000.
