Historical Society Loses State Funding After Refusing to Remove Confederate Memorial and Flag
Georgetown, Delaware, a beautiful Confederate monument was erected by
our friends of the Delaware Grays Camp #2068, sons of Confederate
Veterans, honoring Delaware citizens who fought and in some cases, died,
serving the Confederacy. The memorial also displays flags, one of
which is the Confederate battle flag, the flag of the men honored. The
memorial is on private property and the Georgetown Historical Society,
understanding the importance of honoring ALL veterans and ALL of their
history, has refused calls in the past by the left to remove the flag.
State Democratic Senator Trey Paradee has been one of the most vocal
opponents of the monument and flag. Unable to pressure the Historical
Society and museum to do his bidding, he decided to call upon the state
legislature to pull ALL support of the museum in an attempt to blackmail
the Georgetown Historical Society into removing the flag. He got his
way last week, when the legislature voted to terminate the $14,000 that
had been set aside to help fund the museum, which is a wonderful tribute
to the area’s history and heritage.
Paradee’s antics mean that the small, privately held museum will
struggle to make ends meet and keep their doors open. This is how the
left operates. If they can’t get their way by bullying, they resort to
blackmail and extortion.
So far, the good folks of the Georgetown Historical Society have stood
their ground and refused to pander to the ignorance and bigotry of this
man, but they need our help. We need to make up the $14,000 that the
state of Delaware has pulled from them. There is a gofundme link listed
below. If you want to be a part of keeping that battle flag flying and
the monument up, PLEASE take a moment right now to donate. Let’s not
only make up the $14,000 that was taken away…let’s do EVEN MORE!
