How About “Civil War” Re-enactments With No Battle Flags?

by Al Benson Jr.

This is the weekend for the re-enactment of the tragic Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. 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.

But then Ms. Brown has some interesting connections.  Back in September, 2013 Ms. Brown was scheduled to be the featured speaker at the Coatesville Area NAACP Diamond Anniversary Celebration. I don’t know if she got to speak or not but she was listed to so we can assume she did and we can also assume that, had she not agreed with the NAACP’s cultural Marxist program she wouldn’t have been invited.

Also back in June, 2013, according to http://www.pahouse.com Ms. Brown “…announced the hiring of John Jordan as her chief of staff for her Philadelphia constituent services office…His most recent position was the director of civic engagement for the Pennsylvania NAACP, where he spearheaded the fight against the voter ID law…” Like I said, Brown has some interesting connections and lots of them seem to spell NAACP.

In the process of all this checking, I ran across another article on http://fellowshipoftheminds.com posted on March 17, 2014 by a Dr. Eoywn. The headline for this one was Corrupt Pennsylvania officials caught in sting are all black Democrats. The article started off: “Angela Couloumbis and Craig McCoy report for The Philadelphia Inquirer, March 16, 2014, that a 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…” Another representative got $3,500, but said she could not recall taking any bribe. I suppose the Tooth Fairy brought her the money and left it under her pillow at night. Last I read Ms. Brown was still awaiting trial in July of 2015 because she didn’t have a lawyer. Supposedly Brown had signed an agreement to plead guilty but pulled out before she was to appear in court. That bit of into is from http://www.witf.org

Folks, these are the kind of people that are out there denigrating your culture and heritage because they want to replace it with what they have to offer and what they have to offer (cultural Marxism) is not what we want. The assault on our faith, culture, history and heritage continues this year just as it did last year and we need to begin again to resist it this year and keep on resisting it. Ms. Brown displays the cultural agenda that is supposed to replace our culture and history if we give in to those people. Ask yourself–is this what you want? If not, then you need to stand up and fight back.

  1. I’m sure the cultural Marxists will be able to come up with another negative title for those who dare to disagree with them. They have a long list to choose from and they slather them around with media impunity whenever they feel the occasion demands it.
