The Tiring Flag ControversyS

Dear Mr. Ruscio,

I am writing in regard to the "committee" on your campus that is making demands about the removal of the Confederate flags from the tomb of General Robert E. Lee.  They threaten "civil disobedience" if their demands are not met.  Fine. Let them be "disobedient" and kick them off campus.  Our Southern history and heritage has been under attack for many years and has gotten worse in recent times.  We must not give in to those who believe in and preach rewritten history and besmirch our good ancestors.  Cultural genocide is what it is and we must stand firm and not back down.  To give even a fraction of ground to these people serves only to strengthen their resolve and encourage more attacks against us.  Many of these people have no clue about our real history.  Also, many of them do know our real history, but do not want the truth to be told.  They wish to continue our nation down the path of mythology and lies.  If these reprobates do not approve of the flags on campus, then they are free to attend any other university they choose.  The flags should remain right where they are.
