1,414 Signatures Goal: 1,338

We want Washington & Lee University to not contribute to more of this country's downfall by political correctness and keep the Confederate battle flags that are housed inside the Lee Chapel tomb right where they are. The flags have been housed inside the chapel's tomb for decades and have not hurt anyone! They are there not to offend anybody, but rather are there as a reminder of General Robert E. Lee's service and sacrifice to the Confederate States of America and should be respected as such. I, and many other people in this country have had ancestors fight for the South in the war between the states and we don't apreciate constatly having to hide symbols that are both a part of our cultural heritage as Southerners, as well as a part of our nation's history all because political correctness dictates it.

    Fact: The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was originally and primarily an arm of the Southern Democratic Party. Its mission was to terrorize freed slaves and "ni**er-loving" (their words) Republicans who sympathized with them, so the KKK used the United States Of America's "Stars and Stripes" flag MORE than compared to the Confederate Battle Flag which is not the official flag of the KKK. The 13 stars on the flag stand for the 13 states. Those 13 stars lay in an ‘X’. That ‘X’ is basically saying, those 13 states do not belong to the Federal government. The southern states withdrew from the union in a movement called “secession”. Flags are flags, they are just a piece of cloth, and the Confederate Battle Flag is not racist, this is a historical true fact. Every Capital Building and residential home of those 13 states should PROUDLY fly or display the Confederate Battle Flag for everyone to see, as the Flag is part of southern history. The KKK, the primarily strong arm of the Southern Democratic Party soiled the image of the Confederate Battle Flag, so can you guess which Political Party in those 13 states was the racist. That said, ASK YOURSELF, DO I WANT A CRIMINAL FOR OUR NEXT PRESIDENT? HERE IS A MUST SEE VIDEO: Hillary Clinton: A Career Criminal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kypl1MYuKDY
