Kyle Rogers of the Council of Conservative Citizens is now a Virginia Flagger Fan!

oops-ha-ha

The Virginia Flaggers are a Confederate Heritage group, sometimes referred to as “Neo-Confederates”, who are based in Sandston, Virginia. The group was started in 2011,  their current leader is a woman named Susan Frise Hathaway who is constantly repeating their innocuous motto “Return the Flags – Restore the Honor.” Benign as the group may seem, it appears there is more to the group than meets the eye.

The Virginia Flaggers have had past associations with white supremacists during their activities as well known WN activist Matthew Heimbach was often seen in connection with the group. VA Flagger member Tripp Lewis had described Heimbach as a “good guy” even after Heimbach’s nefarious activities became more obvious.

In the early stages of the VA flagger group, Ms. Hathaway was also interviewed and promoted on a podcast with the white supremacist southern nationalist group League of the South.

It could be argued that their past associations to Heimbach and the League of the South are trivial and spotty at best, but now another white nationalist has stepped up to publicly praise and promote the VA Flaggers and their activities.

The Council of Conservative Citizens is listed as a White Nationalist hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and is a reincarnation of the White Citizens Councils. CofCC’s website and blog is administered by Kyle Rogers, a fairly well seasoned white nationalist activist who has been on the scene for a number of years now. Kyle very rarely makes a public appearance but when he does it certainly makes an impression (lol!)

Kyle, out of the blue, has decided that now the C of CC has a keen interest in the VA Flagger as he is now promoting their up coming “Lee-Jackson Day” event in January on the C of CC website called TopConservativeNews.com

This promotional article is also plugged  on hate forum Stormfront by a user named “UlsterScot12,” believed to be the alias of Kyle Rogers.

Another posting was discovered on the White News Now forum under the category “Council of Conservative Citizens”.

Why would Kyle and the C of CC all of a sudden take an interest in a group that claims they are not racists or white nationalists– like the agenda of the C of CC and Kyle himself?

One plausible reason is centered around Kyle’s side business, which is an internet flag shop called “Patriot Flags.” There, Kyle takes freedom of speech down to the level of selling a variety of flags, many with a white nationalist or Nazi based theme. And if you take a second look at the C of CC Flagger article …

In the world of capitalism it would make sense that Kyle smells cash in the blood of these confederate flag worshippers. He has a strong connection to League of the South and makes a profit by being the providing source for their big black X flags, glee club polo shirts and most likely the printed signs for their meager protests.

Are the VA Flaggers perhaps a potential business prospect? Or maybe the business relationship has already been on going? Either way– flaggers need flags, Kyle sells flags and he sells the kinds of flags they are looking for and they already have mutual friends in the League of the South.

 

The Actual Event:

Screen shot 2014-12-22 at 12.44.19 PM

The event in question that the Virginia Flaggers are planning is on Friday, January 16, 2015 and Saturday, January 17, 2015, in Lexington, Virginia for the Lee-Jackson Holiday.

According to their Facebook Event page :

For the third year, the Va Flaggers will gather in Lexington for the Lee-Jackson holiday. Friday, January 16th is the Virginia State Holiday for Lee-Jackson Day, and Saturday, January 17th is officially recognized as Lee-Jackson Day in Lexington. The Virginia Flaggers will flag the town of Lexington for action taken by City Council to ban ALL flags from city light pole flag stands, rather than allow the flags of Lee and Jackson to fly for the week leading up to the State holiday, AND Washington and Lee University for actions taken by President Ruscio to desecrate the LEE Chapel by removing battle flags from the Lee Mausoleum in response to the demands of 6 agitators/students.
Join us, as we “take it to the streets” to let the folks in Lexington and Washington & Lee University know that there are still many of us who honor Lee and Jackson and will not go away quietly.
We will flag all day Friday, participate in memorial services and the parade on Saturday, and flag Saturday afternoon/evening. We welcome all those interested in standing with us to attend Friday, Saturday, or both days.
Meet at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery Friday at 10:00 a.m, Saturday at 9:00 a.m. for instructions and information.
Lodging information here… http://leejacksonday.webs.com/lodgingsponsors.htm

Yeah, well LOL, so much flag drama and so little time. The most humorous part of the picture is this Va Flagger call for a TOTAL BOYCOTT of Lexington, Va and ask that participants take great effort and not spend ANY MONEY inside the city limits. The recommend lodging is outside of the town, and the Stonewall Brigade has negotiated discounted pricing. This boycott has apparently been ongoing since 2011.

Has this boycott had any effect on the businesses of Lexington?

28a40cc53d12269d4689588b397f314b3313cc5224c1b8d0bda8f29cdfa3b44f

There has been considerable doubt expressed as to the effectiveness of the boycott. According to data contained in a post at the Civil War blog Dead Confederates, the boycott has thus far been wholly ineffective and has made no measurable difference on the economy of the city of Lexington. An informal poll conducted by telephone to no less than 20 local businesses in Lexington, between Friday, December 19, 2014, and Sunday, December 21, 2014, also show that the boycott has had no negative effect on the economy of the city of Lexington. One hotel manager in Lexington said that he “Had no idea what we were talking about”, while the manager of a well known chain restaurant in town commented that they, “Didn’t know there was a boycott”. We did not receive a single positive response from any of the merchants in Lexington, Virginia indicating that they had lost revenue due to the effects of the boycott, with most commenting that they had never even heard of the boycott prior to our inquiry.

Who is going to this event?

Well we have spotted at least four known League of the South members Dennis Durham, Shane Long, Josh Newcomb and Jamie Farren who have pledged to attend the event.

Note: We must stress that we have no grounds to assume that the Flaggers are directly responsible for the Council of Conservative Citizens’ promotion of this event or the League of the South members joining in on the event, so we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt– but it’s certainly suspicious that a group that has had nothing to do with the Flaggers is now bending over backwards to promote them.

It is unclear if the Virginia Flaggers will distance themselves from the Council of Conservative Citizens and the League of the South by simply denouncing the groups promoting them with the possible prospect of business profits or the League of the South who see this as a venue to recruit and hand out their steel magnolia fanzine.

Time will tell…

Revenge of the Nerds-We Totally Got that Sticker. EPIC WIN!

Screen shot 2014-11-24 at 11.56.41 AM

 

The league of the South has a very interesting way of advertising for their white supremacist Michael Hill(billy) club, and it is property defacement.

LOSer Shane Long brags about defacing a Virginia marker in Manassas.

We felt this was disrespectful (not to mention totally illegal!) thus we decided to clean their mess up.

And there is even a video!! (There is a 12 second lag in the beginning, sorry bout that!)

Brad Griffin is a little upset about the video!

The LOSer mess is all cleaned up now and even though Brad Griffin (Hunter Wallace) seems to think this makes us “NERDS” … we embrace the label

League of the South Now Says White Trash Need Not Apply

10275957_258680807651125_2778568532570185099_n

The LOSers have now become an exclusive yuppie-only clique in the cosplay secessionist scene, and they don’t want anyone who won’t submit to what they see as their proper image.
R.G Miller, a seafood restaurant manager and LOSer organizer laid down the law for last Saturday’s rally in Arkansas and Michael Hill approves!

MikeHillApproves

Apparently, this didn’t go over very well with some of the local White Nationalist crowd who were planning on joining them, as our buddy Spelunker reports.

We sat back, munched on popcorn and laughed at the epic carnage of a failed rally, set on a deserted street in the middle of nowhere, and watched the old guard like Billy Roper get dissed and cold shouldered because he just didn’t fit in with the wannabe popular kids.

Billy and his crew didn’t have the right look for the casting of the LOSer set.

LOSersCoupling

The LOSers, who are obviously more concerned about image more than their make believe fantasy of seceding from the federal government, have turned their LOSer rallies into a farcical beauty pageant.

Esther Miller, R.G.’s wife, even wore a prom queen sash for the occasion.

RGMiller copyPromQueen

It is obvious that superficial appearances are the number one concern for them as Marshall Rawson was there, hence being illiterate is no problem at all for the pretty “secede me” posers.

DUH
Christian marriage = yes, grammar and sentence structure = no!

Gone with the Flag

1374158_276787932446499_426056991_n

How sad and pathetic…

( for more images, please visit the blogs Blood of my Kindred and Dead Confederates. <— Dead Confederate blog is  kind of “douche baggy” but the photos are they got are good, they are not blog roll worthy )

Those of you who are new to our blog will be interested to know that we’ve been keeping track of a group from Virginia calling themselves “The Virginia Flaggers.” Their premise is simple, if not typically pompous for the romantic fantasy of the old south: “honor history” by restoring the confederate flag to prominence in the capital of the old confederacy by flying it in public. Thus far, their actions consist of a handful of participants waving confederate flags in front of libraries, museums and public buildings, and their greatest successes consist of being a nuisance to drivers and pedestrians.

Their latest scheme to annoy as many drivers as possible is to erect a fifty-foot tall flagpole “somewhere” along the I-95 approach to southern Richmond. That “somewhere” has finally been revealed to be 2501 Old Bermuda Hundred Road, owned by James D and Barbara B Eaton(registration is required, but free). James D and Barbara B Eaton run Eaton Landscaping and Lawn Care, and they are in all probability nothing more than patsies set up by the flaggers. Let’s take the time to point out just how incredibly silly it is to hide the location of a FIFTY FOOT TALL FLAG POLE, because once the flag goes up, everyone’s going to know exactly where it is, and property records are freely available to the public. The worn-out “heritage not hate” argument has already been thoroughly dissolved by us and others. We’ve documented their embrace of openly racist hate groups and individuals and the blog Civil War Crossroads has demolished their weak academic posturing; you can find out more at the links provided.

Today is the day that the flag was to be unfurled. We were seriously contemplating whether this would even happen at all, given the recent internal strife that saw their head drop everything and put as much distance between her and the group as possible. We’ve speculated that the flag wouldn’t be going up at all, and as proof that we shouldn’t be playing the lottery, it went up.

We were taking bets on what the final disposition of this saga would be:

mean people on the internet made us feel bad so we chickened out at the last minute

communist liberals made reams of undocumented, unverifiable death threats against us that we never bothered to report to the police, so we’re attempting to save face by defending it with video cameras and tazers

Lurching and squeaking like a broken toy, the flaggers managed to unfurl a historically inaccurate, fifteen-by-fifteen sheet of made-in-china nylon along the southern approach to Richmond along I-95. It’s mostly hidden behind a line of trees, visible only from directly across the highway.

Considering the amount of difficulty encountered by simply attempting to erect a flagpole, this will probably be the beginning of the end of the Virginia Flaggers. We suspect it won’t be long before some other idiotic ideologue tries to emulate their confederate forebears and chase after a lost cause.

Is the Virginia Confederate Flag Situation on Interstate 95 a Hoax?

IMG_0023

A Neo-Confederate fetish group called the Virginia Flaggers have been generating reams of cringe-worthy drama over the past few weeks, claiming that their entire world will crumble into the sea if they can’t raise a sheet of nylon imprinted with the confederate naval jack along the interstate leading to Richmond, Virginia.

This group is a small gaggle of loons; some are from Virginia, many are not. None of them seem to care about how offensive this action is to the most of the population nor the fact that there are white supremacists like Matthew Heimbach among them.

We could start pointing fingers and naming names of some of the more moronic individuals in the group, like some mentally unbalanced trash novelist out of Pensacola FL, but demented histrionics– however embarassingly funny– are not article worthy.

The rumor is that their media-hound “leader” Susan Hathaway has stepped away from the group, and it is spinning out of control in the untrained hands of those who lack the social skills or emotional stability to know how to maintain the tattered remnants of the group’s positive media image.

It’s fifteen days until the unfurling of the gigantic sheet of Chinese nylon, and we’re scratching our heads. You see, it takes twenty eight days for concrete to fully set and cure, and to properly erect a tall flagpole and not hilariously topple over in a slight breeze, it should probably be up by now. At the very least, some manner of construction should be under way. But there isn’t anything of the sort happening anywhere inside the Bermuda Hundred Campaign area along interstate 95– no new flagpoles, no clearing of land, no tree-clearing operations to improve sight-lines… nothing!

So, if we eliminate the possibility that this goofy bag of nuts are putting up a structurally unsound flagpole, the only other scenario is that the whole saga is one massive hoax.

For what purpose? Well, there’s the matter of the three thousand plus dollars that was raised for “security fencing, lighting and a camera.” It’s as easy as a few mouse clicks to claim a bunch of mean people on the internet forced you to abandon your plans and that pile of cash suddenly just fades into the shadows. There’s also the old Richard Viguirie direct mail tactic to consider– yes, all of those well-wishers are now components of a dollar-a-name list that can be readily sold to any political campaign with the money.

But let’s dig into this a little further. The brilliant civil war historian Dr. Brooks Simpson has suggested two possibilities for the locations of the flag. Both are within the Bermuda Hundred Campaign area and both properties abut interstate 95.

Site #1:

The back yard is easy to see from the highway, but the house itself is down a long, private driveway. The owners of this property are in the remodeling and contracting business, which makes sense from a logistical standpoint– they might be people who had some business dealings with Susan Hathway, for example. Of course, Susan Hathaway dropped everything and ran as far from the flaggers as is possible, so this might have put a crimp in that plan– if there ever was one. But to publicly associate with a widely reviled hate group –a toothless joke of a hate group, even– is commercial suicide. Couple that with no visible work being done at the site and this scores low for probability.

Site #2:

Again, the back yard is nestled right against the highway, with a thin line of trees acting as a barrier between the property and the road. The houses here are close to their streets, so it’s very easy to see if any work is going on. Once again, no work is happening. There aren’t any traces of any heavy equipment, no recent tree work nor poured cement. Probability is low here too.

Both locations are demographically multi-ethnic working class, and it seems the height of folly (and bad southrin‘ manners!) to personally insult every single neighbor on your block for the sake of an offensive sheet of nylon.

So we have to wonder if the flag is going up at all– or if it’s not going up as advertised. Time will tell where the real location is, and with it the thundering deluge of inquisitive reporters who want to know exactly what possesses people to want to be forever tarnished with the symbol of slavery.

Terrorist Youth Network is Now Promoting Lynching.

Matthew Heimbach marches with the Neo-confederate VA Flaggers.

Matthew Heimbach marches with the Neo-confederate VA Flaggers.

Hate groups are never short of paranoia. They are constantly projecting their own violent tendencies in the form of self victimization.

The brilliant history blog Crossroads and author Brooks D Simpson have being doing an excellent job of reporting the day-to-day lunacy and latest in media whoredom of the “The Virginia Flaggers”.

Just in case you may not have heard of them, these Neo-Confederate dress up cosplay losers want to erect a big-ass pole and Confederate flag outside of Richmond VA. Having watched way too much Gone with the Wind as children, they want to return to the idyllic past where black people were property.

Onward we go to how much idiocy is being excreted from this situation; the flaggers now believe their big pole and made-in-China nylon rag is going to incite the big bad boogeymen of “the left” into vandalizing/harming/terrorizing them for their hoop skirt fantasies. As Brooks D Simpson reported on the rhetoric of these morons:

First, it was a warning about “vandalism.” Now, it’s a warning about terrorism:

You know what worries me the most about the level of vicious hatred individual Leftist haters express on postings of these types of articles lately?

I worry that sooner or later some lone nut or two, possibly inspired by the anti-Confederate flag rhetoric of these people will – in the name of “tolerance” and “patriotism” of course – commit some heinous act of violence of the type that took place in Aurora, CO or recently in Boston, MA. 

Its all too easy for me to envision someone planting a pressure cooker or worse pulling an AK-47 on a Veteran’s Day Parade that features Confederate re-enactors. 

The Left has recently shown these last couple of years they can no longer reasonably control their crazies, assuming they are even trying.

The irony is that Matthew Heimbach (see photo above, the guy up front in the black jacket) is fairly recent to the Neo-Nazi scene but a well known white supremacist; from what you can see from the photo, he’s a member/supporter of the Virginia flaggers.

We just recently featured a story about Heimbach’s fellow “White Student Union” school club member John Stortstrom  who was involved in creating explosives as a contractor with the military.

In that story, we also mentioned the new parent group of the white student union: “The Traditionalist Youth Network,” a group born out of the old Youth For Western Civilization college club sponsored by Morton Blackwell’s Leadership Institute.

The Traditionalist Youth Network is a apparently being run by Heimbach and the Indiana white power gadfly Matt Parrott and is most likely backed by The American Freedom Party .

Ya’ll still following this?

It looks like ugly just got uglier because now The Traditionalist Youth Network is now promoting the violence of lynching.

Translation: Communists= Blacks Zionists=Jews Modernists=Gays

Translation:
Communists= Blacks
Zionists=Jews
Modernists=Gays

On their page they go into great detail how the young violent hate monger can create violent and threatening signs that promote racial terrorism on the people. And we thought all that was already over.

Some quotes from the article (which we made sure to take screen shots of)

lynch-2

If you followed these directions correctly, it means that you’ve got a kick-ass sign which is capable of lynching Communism worse than a farmer beating a rented mule.

 Now that you know how to make an awesome sign, get out there and be a strong Church Militant, and don’t forget to post some pictures on our Facebook wall…

Who are the REAL terrorists NOW?
