The Rev. Bryan Dabney
It appears that the Mississippi Legislature is faced with a “full court press” involving an assortment of sports magnates, big business types, celebrities, well as a "who's who " list of past and current Republican officeholders all in a quest to change our state flag.
And all of this is being done under the rubrics of “tolerance, inclusion and peace.” It’s a “fool’s errand” for the simple reason that any design they come up with will likely not pass muster with the Leftist malcontents. They may have something in mind, or they may not because BLM is a Marxist organization bent on revolution. The Alinsky rules are quite clear— no compromises with opponents only complete submission.
The sad thing is that those who would compromise away of our history are only interested in placating the monster before us. Their excuses for such behavior are various. They likely want to avoid any potentially barbarous actions— such as looting and vandalism. They would like to have football this fall without the loss of players or coaches. Oh, and business deals, let's not forget them either— the ol' quid pro quo of “get rid of the flag and we'll bring commerce your way.” There is nothing sacred and no principle which will not be sacrificed to these beasts among us and all for profit or preference.
Needless to say this will end badly if the Legislature gives in— and I don't mean regarding just the issue of changing the flag. There will be endless harangues by Leftists who will press the “powers that be” to give up even more, which they will. And on that account, we will all learn again the hard lesson of September, 1939: that appeasement does not work as it only encourages the appeased to push for more concessions.
God help us.
