3-year undercover sting operation by the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office captured five state officials on tape accepting money…” The article listed the five officials, one of which was “State Rep. Vanessa Brown who took $4,000 in exchange for voting against a bill requiring voters to show identification at the polls. Brown did vote against the bill…”
Re-enactors come from all across the country to take part in one army or the other. However, one Pennsylvania politician does not welcome the Confederate Battle Flag. Undoubtedly there are others but this lady is creating somewhat of a hostile environment by her commentary on the flag. Southern hospitality is something that apparently does not abide in her.
The lady is Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown, a Democrat from Philadelphia and she has quite a history.
According to a recent article on http://abc27.com Brown “…recently protested a Confederate flag in a display at the state Capitol…and Gov. Tom Wolf ordered it removed. Brown says its a symbol of hatred and murder which wasn’t mentioned in the Capitol display and likely won’t be on the battlefield reenactment.” She’s right–it probably won’t be mentioned–for the simple reason that it is not true. Whether Ms. Brown realizes that or not I don’t claim to know. Brown said “If they’re not going to tell the story properly, then they should not be displayed and they should not be reenacted unless they are going to tell the truth.”
Ms. Brown is a cultural Marxist, whether she even realizes it or not (though I think she does) and what her statement means in that context is that if the story is not told in a way that is compatible with the cultural Marxist agenda then it should not be told at all or the history should simply be rewritten to fit the cultural Marxist agenda because that’s what most of these “memory hole” Marxists are really all about. Brown just makes the statement that the flag is a symbol of murder and hate. Where’s her proof for such a statement? Black soldiers fought under that flag. Were they murderers too? Ms. Brown is either woefully ignorant of the real history or she fervently hopes those who listen to her inflammatory statement are.
