I first reported on this story back in May when a local chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans in Florida decided to erect the largest Confederate flag at the junction of Interstates 4 and 72 outside of Tampa. Well, it looks like a flag measuring 30-by-50 foot was not large enough, so this past Sunday Marion Lamber and the rest of the boys unveiled a new flag measuring 30-by-60-foot. But wait, here's the best part. Apparently, these geniuses have decided to cut up the old flag and sell it in pieces on Ebay to help pay for commemorative plaques which will be situated at the base of the flag pole. Isn't this the same organization that claims to revere the flag as the symbol of courage of their Confederate ancestors? What better way to show your respect than to cut it up into little pieces for profit. I guess this is exactly what their ancestors fought and died for. Oh…and I almost forgot to mention that the old flag was made in China.
What a bunch of hypocrites. Don't hold your breadth for the national office to voice any concern.
