What’s going on with the leadership of the United Daughters of the Confederacy? Has this most respected and one of the earliest of Confederate Heritage organizations lost its direction? Are the once bold leaders in honoring our Confederate hero’s now succumbing to political correctness? I pray not…
The following is the response to Hk Edgerton’s call for help in Florida, by UDC president of the Florida Division.
"This is just a reminder that "Flagging" is political and goes against UDC bylaws. We are a non-political, Patriotic society and conduct, such as "Flagging", gives us all a bad name. UDC should not be represented in such a fashion and our Florida members are asked not to participate as "Flaggers."
President, Florida Division
Since when has walking down the street carrying the banner of our ancestors become a political proposition? This is not the time to cower under pressure of political correctness. In light of whats happened in Lexington Va. and Reidsville NC, this is the time to unit and double down in our efforts to demand the respect and recognition our heritage and our ancestors deserve…Where are those hard core Confederate women of the past?
LADIES, WE NEED YOU MORE THAN EVER!
