Dear Governor Haley,

What you and the South Carolina Legislature have done in the removing of the Confederate Battle Flag is absolutely deplorable.  This is reminiscent of Hitler and his regime during their Nazi reign in Germany when they attempted to remove an entire group of people, their symbols, and history from the face of the earth.  This is cultural genocide, or rather, cultural terrorism.  The fact that anyone finds the Confederate Battle Flag offensive is proof of their historical ignorance and their being a victim of 150 years of Marxist rewritten history.  There is no documented proof whatsoever that any Confederate flag ever represented slavery or racism, but there is ample proof of this concerning the U.S. flag.  Bit by bit, the Marxist left has chipped away at our Southern monuments and symbols, and it currently resembles the feeding frenzy of sharks in bloody water due to their continued attacks, all across the South, of our historical symbols. To have Southern "leadership" jump on the cultural genocide bandwagon is very distressing, and a disrespectful slap in the face to all our brave dead Confederates who gave their lives defending their homes and families from an illegal invasion, an invasion designed to continue the extortion of excessive tariffs from the South, NOT to free slaves. Are you truly that ignorant of our history, or are you just pandering to the Marxists and historically ignorant in wanting their votes for the next election?  It is a sad time indeed when an entire group of people, and their history, is being attacked and removed from sight.  When are we to expect the concentration camps for those of us who will die before removing our Confederate flags?  When will it be "illegal" to even display our flags on our trucks or in our own yards?  That is what you have opened up to door to.  These Marxists will not be satisfied with this victory, just like they were not satisfied with the removal of the flag from the SC Capitol Building to the grounds, even though they said they would not bother it again. There is no appeasing such blood thirsty people. They will push and push until all Confederate monuments, street names, school names, cemeteries, books, and flags are completely resigned to the trash heap. You have not only participated, and been the ring leader, in a movement which is a violation of the rights of Southern people, but failed in your position as a leader to attempt to educate the anti-Confederates to the true accounts of our history. Like my brave ancestors, I will die before I give up.
