A new group arises to fly the Confederate flag at the SC State House this summer

COLUMBIA, SC -- An event to raise the Confederate flag on the grounds of the S.C. State House will go forward this month after all.

The group Flags Across the South will raise the rebel banner beside the Confederate soldiers’ monument on Saturday, July 13, the group’s chairman says.

Flags Across the South has reserved the north side of the State House grounds throughout the day. Chairman Braxton Spivey of Charleston says the group plans to raise the flag on a temporary flagpole around 9 a.m. and leave the banner flying near the intersection of Gervais and Main streets until the permit expires at 5 p.m.

Spivey said he wanted to raise the flag on July 10, the four-year anniversary of when the Confederate flag was removed from the State House grounds in the aftermath of a racially-motivated shooting in a Charleston church that killed nine people.

2. Would we be fine with Germany hauling out Nazi flags for special occasions?
