A win for sanity, freedom, and property rights.
Victory in Prince Edward County! Just getting out of court. More details to follow, but the judge ruled in our favor, DENYING Prince Edward County’s appeal of the decision of their own Board of Zoning Appeals, and stating that we did everything in good faith and are not responsible for the County issuing us a building permit “in error”.
This is a huge win for us, for the citizens of Prince Edward County, for our Confederate veterans, and for ALL landowners in the Commonwealth and beyond. All glory to God. All honor to our Confederate ancestors.
Baron Bodissey celebrates.
It’s a moment worth celebrating, but the fight is probably not over yet. The Virginia Flaggers took in money from donations (I was one of the donors) to fight their case, but Prince Edward County is using taxpayers’ money to wage their battles, which means their lawyers can continue with their appeals at higher levels, presumably all the way to the Virginia Supreme Court. The Virginia Flaggers will then have to ask the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the United Daughters of the Confederacy to dig deeper into their pockets to pay the additional legal expenses.
I don’t understand how the supervisors can justify all this to their constituents. Outside of Farmville itself — where the Longwood University community is a reliable source of wokeness — there can’t be a whole lot of support for fighting to remove the Battle Flag. Even black people are largely indifferent to the issue.
If blacks are indeed “largely indifferent to the issue,” which statistics seem to indicate they are, well, good on them for that. At this late date, the battle is NOT over the flag per se, nor blacks neither. What it’s about now is rewriting history, to suit the Left’s present-day agenda. No more, no less.
Which means that the fight will NEVER be over, as long as one shitlib still draws breath. And on the historical-accuracy note, nice to see Bodissey refer to it, correctly, as the Confederate Battle Flag, which it is, instead of just the “Confederate Flag,” which it never was. A feel-good story all the way around.
