Several Houstonians are calling for customers to boycott a store inside The Shops at Houston Center because the store owner sells confederate flag merchandise.
Dorothea Harris is the owner of Designs by Dorli. She said she has been selling confederate-themed items for years. Recently, she has received backlash from some customers.
Ashton Woods with the Houston chapter of Black Lives Matter said he does not support the sale of confederate flag merchandise.
“A lot of people would like to say that Houston is a welcoming and diverse city, but Houston is a fractured, segregated city,” Woods said, “And we’re working on coming together, I think that’s something that should happen, but when a display like that is seen, we should see the good with the ugly.”
Segregated? No, no American city is segregated. And what racial divisions there are created by people like Woods and the BLM groups. If you want to see and hear hate, listen to the rhetoric of BLM. This is the type of divisive and false rhetoric the Left uses to divide people and further their agenda. What is that agenda?
Let me say, I have studied the War Between the States for many years, and had many ancestors who fought in the war. I am proud of their sacrifice, and gallantry, and I always will be. I have never, and will never stop defending both their honor, and history as it happened. The story of the war is about as complex as you could imagine, and those that seek to make the entire war entirely about slavery are deeply ignorant. Those that would try to remove slavery as any cause would also be mistaken. Likewise, those that would allow the Left to erase all vestiges of the Confederacy, and the rest of American history are fools. The cultural Stalinism that has been waged against all things Southern, is also being waged against all things American.
Every “sin” the Left can accuse the Confederacy of they can accuse America of. I said years ago that when the Left was done demonizing Lee, Jackson, Davis, and Confederate soldiers they would do the same to Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, etc. Make no mistake that the cultural Stalinism we are fighting today is not about sensitivity, or racial harmony, or coming together. Rather, it is about destroying American history, heritage and culture. It is simply another front in the Left’s insidious and evil campaign to destroy America. Consider the assaults on our right to be a sovereign nation, our right to set our immigration standards, the right to self-defense, on individualism, parental rights, religious liberties, property rights, freedom of association and freedom of speech. Simply put, the Left is seeking to destroy every last vestige of American greatness.
