Burn The Confederate Flag Day

The General is spear-heading this effort: "Burn The Confederate Flag Day" (link here) on September 12th (9/12). As a former South Carolina resident for 16 years, I recall myriad times that "to fly or not to fly" the rebel flag of treason/sedition was debated by Gubernatorial candidates, senate candidates, city & county candidates.

Burn the Confederate Flag Day is a protest against the right's exploitation of racial prejudice for political gain. We urge you to burn the Confederate flag, a long-time symbol of racial hatred, on Sept 12, the date when the racially-divisive Tea Party holds its annual hate fest.

Ways to get involved:
  • Host a flag-burning party on Sept. 12.
    • Tell us where and when you're holding it, and we'll publish a list of events.
    • Send us photos of the event. We'll post them here.
    • Upload a video of the event onto YouTube. We'll embed it or link to it.
  • Let them know we're watching. Dress up like a clown and take a partially burned flag to a local tea party event (Don't burn a flag at the event unless local laws allow it.)
  • Spread the word via Facebook (here's our Facebook group), Twitter, and other social media.
  • Submit your own ideas, here in the comments. The General will use them to update his list.
  • Place a banner on your blog, website, or social media profile. Here are a couple of examples you can use.
