Here’s a dilemma , I think. Say you are a long rooted family from Virginia, or South Carolina. You have ancestors who served bravely and with distinction in the Civil War. You have some reservoir of pride in the statues of Stonewall, of Robert E., or the display of the Stars & Bars. Your family has done well since 1865, you are upstanding respectable ‘Americans’. You hold your head high. The Civil War was a long time ago, but you hold it with some pride because of the quality of your ancestors. And then today. In Charlottesville. Now you have the KKK, the new Nazi’s, the ‘white supremacist’. the ‘white nationalists’, who have appropriated your Stars & Bars, who violently defend the removal of those statues of Forrest, of Lee. And they look awful on TV doing it ----sieg heil chants, stiff armed Nazi salutes, anger and hostility demonstrated. Murder even, what with that speeding car. So what do you do now? You are proud of your family’s service to a cause they thought was right at the time, but now, with Charlottesville, your ancestors and that flag are linked with the people and an ideology that most of America finds repugnant. Far, far more repugnant than that old timey Civil War slave stuff. These are Hitler fans. These are Jew haters. These are Negro haters. These are haters of non-Christians. Not really your cocktail party crowd. What do you do? Do you take down your Stars & Bars? Do you firmly announce, “those people are reprehensible”...and it is a tragedy that they have appropriated/adopted our symbols of 'Southern Pride'? ......................................................... As an aside. Really, as my own personal opinion. This Charlottesville tragedy may be a big....BIG friggin' nail in the White Nationalist's coffin. They will linger, of course, but from a PR standpoint .....they just sh*t in their boot. And then, from a different perspective, do these proto-Nazis go back to work on Monday and pridefully announce they participated in the Friday night rally?
