To the Editor:
In regards to your column last week, let me make some points.
You wrote: “If someone gets pissed off because a flag used by a country — the Confederacy — that wanted to keep people in slavery on public property offends them, then take it down and celebrate your heritage elsewhere. In this country no one can take away your heritage, and losing this battle is not the start down a slippery slope that will lead to that happening.”
You do know the cemetery in Mexico City that contains the graves of American soldiers who fought in the wars against Mexico pisses off the Mexicans. More so because of the U.S. flag that flies over the graves of American Veterans. We should just tear down our flag and dig up the graves so Mexicans can sleep easier at night, right?
You do know the huge Muslim population in France is pissed off at the U.S. flag that flies over the American soldiers in Normandy. They are really pissed off cause they are just Americans — the infidels, and that U.S. flag really pisses them off.
Reckon we just allow the Muslims to tear down the flag and pave over the graves so they can chant to Allah a little less loudly, right?
I understand progressive means to spit on American veterans, and yes, Confederate soldiers are American veterans. How cool was it to harass Vietnam Veterans, to spit on them and call them baby killers? Well, the Confederate veterans have taken their place in our society’s mentality.
This whole sad affair was the doing of lawyer Bob Clark. He was just so offended. He had to repeatedly return to the little granite marker for Confederate veterans to get his daily dose of “pissed off.” He even managed to get 19 others in all of North Carolina to sign his petition of hate and discrimination. He too is a progressive! Keeping that fix of “pissed off” replaced his regular life routine for almost two years. Addicted to being a hater of American veterans. I bet Mr. McLeod was signer No. 2 on his petition!
If you and lawyer Bob would just stop with the hate and social engineering, life would return to normal real quick.
I will pray for your soul.
