Thurston Moore, Scalawag

Via Grayson Jennings

Research by the Va Flaggers has determined that the Anti-Confederate behavior by the VMFA, is not limited to the removal of the Battle Flags from the Chapel. In a March 31 meeting of the Executive Committee of the Board Trustees, the following motion was made...and carried UNANIMOUSLY...

Motion: proposed by Mr. Moore and seconded by Mrs. Goode that the Museum is opposed to flying the Confederate Battle Flag or any of its derivatives on the Museum property. Motion carried unanimously.

This is particularly egregious when you consider that the "Museum Property" they speak of is actually part of the Confederate Memorial Park, as specified in an agreement between the State of Virginia and the United Confederate Veterans.

Complete meeting minutes can be found here:

"Mr. Moore" is Thurston Moore, President of the Board of Trustees of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. He can be reached by email at: Send him an email and ask him why he made this motion and why the VMFA continues to dishonor our veterans.
