Historic Beaufort church exchanges Confederate flags on grounds & Memphis Mayor Wants to Dig Up General Forrest

Via comment by Cav Med on The Moneychanger

 In the wake of the June 17, 2015, Emanuel AME Church shootings in Charleston, state and other institutions are distancing themselves from the familiar "Confederate flag" often used as a symbol of the Confederacy (bottom image), although technically that actually was the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia. The top image shows the first national flag of the Confederacy. Because of its similarity to the Union flag, it was updated twice, each instance incorporating the Northern Virginia flag in the upper left corner in place of the circle of stars.

The Parish Church of St. Helena will replace Confederate battle flags decorating soldiers' graves with a different Confederate flag in response to last week's massacre in Charleston, the church's pastor said in a parish newsletter.

The Rev. Jeffrey Miller wrote in a newsletter Wednesday that the battle flags in the historic Beaufort church's graveyard will be replaced by the first national Confederate flags. Battle flags have adorned the graves of Confederate soldiers buried in the churchyard to honor the Civil War veterans, but after the events in Charleston, that flag's purpose could be misunderstood, Miller said.

"As most of you know, it is this very flag that decorates the graves of Confederate soldiers in our historic churchyard, and I fear that our motivation for allowing its presence -- namely to honor the memory of the Confederate dead -- is going to be grossly misunderstood in the current climate," Miller wrote in the newsletter.

Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton wants to dig up the bodies of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife and remove them from a city park in the latest and perhaps most despicable example of the anti-Southern cleansing spreading across the nation.
“Which African-American wants to have a picnic in the shadow of Nathan Bedford Forrest?” Wharton said in a Thursday press briefing.

In addition to desecrating the graves, Wharton wants to tear down a massive statue honoring the Confederate general who was involved in organizing the Ku Klux Klan. The bodies of Forrest and his wife would be relocated to a cemetery.

“These relics, these messages of this despicable period of this great nation, it’s time for those to be moved,” the mayor said.

Memphis city officials have been waging a fierce and unrelenting war on southern heritage.  In 2013, the city council changed the name of Forrest Park to Health Sciences Park. They also changed the names of Jefferson Davis Park and Confederate Park.

So now they want to disinter the dead? What in God’s name is wrong with the mayor? What kind of sick, twisted person wants to dig up dead people?

  1. Ya' know... this just be the thing that gets the party started. PC, is the death of this nation, just what the marxists want. Fundamental transformation, "We're going to have to change our history, change our traditions"... I really didn't think he could pull it off.

    1. We're going to have to change our history, change our traditions

      Speak for yourselves, Marxists. :)

  2. What ? ...... That being the case I would gladly donate a quiet spot on my own property , assemble some people I know and re-bury them with honor and dignity .

    1. That's what the Lee family should have done when W&L removed the flags: Take all the Lees that are there to Beauvoir
