    A Confederate flag banner was flown over the Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee on Wednesday ahead of NASCAR’s All-Star Race. The banner flown over the Wednesday race also included the website “SCV.org,” a website operated by the organization The Sons of Confederate Veterans, USA Today reported. The organization also claimed credit for a banner showing the Confederate Flag that was flown over a race in Talladega, Fla. last month. Bristol Herald Courier reporter Tim Dodson shared footage of the banner Wednesday. NASCAR in June banned displays of the flag at all of its events and properties, saying that it “runs...

    Mississippi’s state House of Representative on Sunday passed a bill to remove the Confederate flag from the state flag, with the Senate expected to pass the measure later today. The lower chamber voted 91-23 to remove the symbol from the flag, which has flown since 1894. It was the nation’s last state flag containing the symbol. The legislation, written by House Speaker Philip Gunn (R), calls for the current flag to be immediately removed, after which a nine-person commission would be appointed to design a new one, Mississippi Today reported. Under the terms of the bill, the commission would recommend...

A day later, editor Alex Delany has apologized for previously making a cake decorated as the Confederate flag. A picture of the cake — which was found on Delany's old Tumblr account "The Pantalones" — began circulating around Twitter on Tuesday morning following a tweet by food writer Tammie Teclemariam. In the original blog post — which was posted on July 24, 2010 — Delany wrote that he had made...

    The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) banned display of the Confederate flag at its military installations Friday, on everything from bumper stickers to coffee mugs. "The Confederate battle flag has all too often been co-opted by violent extremist and racist groups whose divisive beliefs have no place in our Corps," the service branch said in a statement."Our history as a nation, and events like the violence in Charlottesville in 2017, highlight the divisiveness the use of the Confederate battle flag has had on our society." “This presents a threat to our core values, unit cohesion, security and good order and discipline,”...

    film to include Confederate flag controversy John Schneider might just be the world's biggest "Dukes of Hazzard" fan. The actor starred as Bo Duke in the series -- which ran for seven seasons from 1979 to 1985 -- as well the 2000 made-for-TV movie, "The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood." He has since created what he calls a "tribute" to the legacy he admires -- an independent film developed by Schneider's studio titled, "Christmas Cars." In order for the 59-year-old actor to develop a memento that “Dukes of Hazzard” fans could be excited for, the "Smallville" alum, along with his new wife...

    A social media post about a message projected on a Hephzibah High School classroom whiteboard referencing the Confederate flag has resulted in a teacher being placed on administrative leave. The post from a parent of a student shows the projection that includes a Confederate flag and the statement, “a sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister. Think of it like a white trash ‘Save The Date’ card.” It was reportedly used as an example of a story within a story. According to the Richmond County School System, an...

    How the Left Gets the Statue of Liberty Poem Wrong No, it’s not a mandate to wreck America. August 22, 2019 Daniel Greenfield 3 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Being a writer means never knowing what you might be remembered for. Or how badly. That poem that Emma Lazarus became famous for was forgotten, remembered again, and has been misused, quoted out of context and transformed into a battle cry for open borders and a disastrous immigration policy. Its lines about...

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on Friday ordered that the Mississippi flag, which carries a Confederate emblem, be replaced by the American flag at a state park that overlooks the Statue of Liberty. Murphy ordered the removal of Mississippi’s flag from a display of each state’s flag at Liberty State Park, a preserve of more than 1,200 acres in Jersey City that overlooks Ellis Island and Lady Liberty. Murphy is a first-term Democrat and a self-styled progressive who regularly cited the Emma Lazarus poem at the statue’s base that invites immigrants to America. New Jersey, he said, is rooted in...

    A hospital worker from Mississippi went viral this week — and is now jobless — thanks to his outfit choice on Election Day. Clayton Hickey, of Olive Branch, thought it would be a good idea to wear a Confederate flag T-shirt with a noose and the words “Mississippi Justice” emblazoned on the front. His picture was taken at the polls on Tuesday and posted online for all to see. Social media users called Hickey out for the move, with many blasting him as racist. The former cop had been wrongly identified as an election worker at first before local media outlets...

    The media is more focused on whether the shirt was appropriate rather than the violent mob beating. On Friday, numerous Kenwood High School students in Baltimore, Maryland physically attacked a fellow classmate for wearing a shirt with a Confederate flag on it, students say. A video of the apparent brawl, wherein multiple students are seen assaulting a classmate as a teacher unsuccessfully tries to break up the mayhem, has since made the rounds on social media.
