I just read a report in the Hillsdale Mi newspaper, that Bob Evans has fired an employee for having the flag in the window of his truck. I will no longer be dining at Bob Evans. I hope you can spread the word on this PC injustice.
Also, I read your blog daily. We live in Ohio but I was born in NC.
How embarrassing as he graduated from my military school Greenbrier although I would also list a classmate who disciplined two VMI cadets for playing a few notes of Dixie after the end of the yearly remembrance of the Battle of New Market. Don't know which one would win the prize. :)
"I said it wasn’t coming down, no way,” he continued. “Then they showed me my way out.”
After the Confederate flag received extensive media attention this year as the banner of a racist mass murderer in South Carolina, many of the flag’s faithful stewards remain adamant that it is a symbol of remembrance, not xenophobia and hate.
Now, Wesley Rogers of Hillsdale claims that that assertion cost him his job at the Bob Evans plant in Hillsdale.
“I had the Confederate flag hanging from my truck [in the parking lot],” Rogers said, “and I was asked to remove it” by management on Tuesday.
The termination was apparently preceded by the original complaint on Friday, when Rogers’s supervisors brought the issue to him after receiving an “anonymous complaint” via telephone, according to Rogers.
Reaching no resolution that day, Rogers and his supervisors met again on Tuesday, and they presented the same ultimatum.
