Southern Politically <br> Correct Butt Kissers: September 2011


SCV caves-in to demands on Confederate Powder Works??

The next Alexander camp meeting will discuss events surrounding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the Confederate Powder Works Chimney... Think maybe a little flack is bouncing off them?

Story one

Confederate Flag To Be Removed From Powder Works. The Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Augusta Canal came to an agreement (SCV caved in) that a plaque will be installed on or around the chimney, using various flags that were used during the Confederacy. There is no definite timetable for the flag's removal, but the Canal Authority says it will be a couple of days.

To appease the Georgia Historical Society and the local Salvation Army, they demand the historically correct battle flag be removed because of a flimsy “historical accuracy???” excuse and a feigned sudden concern for the chimney after receiving a state tourism award for improvements to the Augusta Canal National Heritage Area.

Story two

Regarding the story “Confederate Powder works flag to be replaced with more historically accurate one” (Sept. 16): The Augusta Canal Authority is mistaken. The Confederate Battle Flag is historically accurate.

In August 1864, all Confederate forces in Augusta, including those under Col. G.W. Rains’ authority, were assigned to the Army of Tennessee under Gen. John B. Hood. The Army of Tennessee battle flag was ordered by Gen. Joseph Johnston and issued to units beginning in January 1864. The rectangular design incorporated 13 white stars on a blue St. Andrew’s cross on a red field. Augusta’s Commanding Gen. A.R. Wright sent 1,300 troops, including companies from the Powderworks, to Macon under the Army of Tennessee battle flag.

UDC Kissing butt???

(The Reidsville UDC [United Daughters of the Confederacy] is thinking and responding at a level that is morally superior to that of its State leaders whether or they will this heritage battle. They are to be highly commended for their intelligence in this current situation, AND beyond that they are to be commended for the integrity and strength of their moral fiber and character that has given them the dignity to stand for that which is right when their State NC UDC failed the test of this heritage challenge.)

Daughter's of the Confederacy (UDC) not interested in replacing the Confederate Statue "Reidsville. NC."

The city determined that statue was owned by the United Daughter's of the Confederacy (UDC). That group told the city it had decided not to return the statue to its former location.

A letter to the city from Aileen Ezell, the President of the North Carolina UDC stated: "While we much prefer the monument to remain in the location it has occupied for the past 100 years, we do not wish to be a factor in any unpleasantness that may occur if the statue is allowed to remain in its present location."... (What about the unpleasantness done to Southron and their heroes!?)

This is typical of most so-called Southern Groups (UDC, SCV, etc) of late.... Kissing butts of the pc crowd!!


The marble statue was knocked off its pedestal and distoryed on West Morehead Street and North Scales Street on May 23 after a van missed a traffic circle and crashed right into it. The driver of the van was black.

The complete monument has now been removed by the city.
