The anti-flag crowd suddenly has nothing to say now that one of their own was so consumed with hate that they apparently stalked, chased, and murdered Anthony Hervey because of his pro-Southern cultural and political beliefs. I hope the Mississippi State Flag stays up as a tribute to his memory.
We’ve been repeatedly told that #BlackLivesMatter. Well, I guess they don’t. I noticed that Anthony Hervey made it a point to say in his speech that he only felt safe surrounded by a bunch of White people with the Confederate Flag. From June 2012 to May 2013, we established here that 100 percent of homicide arrests in Birmingham were black, so Hervey’s beliefs about his safety were not without foundation.
Update: I see now they are clinging to the hope this was an accident. That’s a comforting illusion. Really, what else can they do?
