"Take 'Em Downers" flying the "Anti-Fa" Flag celebrating the County Commission's July 19th Vote

Tampa - A studyof the proponents for taking down the Confederate Veterans Memorial in Tampa revels that "Anti-Facists" and radical leftists were involved in the effort. Extensive research was conducted on the individuals who signed up to speak for tearing down the War Memorial at the July 19, 2017 meeting of the Hillsborough County Board of County Commission, which was summarized in a detailed 113 page report entitled "AStudy: Speakers for Removing Confederate War Memorial at July 19, 2017 Hillsborough County BOCC Meeting".

"We really were not surprised by what we found" said David McCallister, spokesman for Save Southern Heritage - FL who conducted the Study. "Its a really hard core group of social justice warriors and left-wing democratic party activists, mixed in with Socialist-Marxists and Anti-Fa... certainly not mainstream America" McCallister added. The Study reveals that the proponents of taking down the memorial included included individuals with criminal histories and those affiliated with "Anti-Facists" ("Anti-Fa") as well as Anti-Trump activists such as Women's Mark Organizers, Immigration protesters such as No Borders, and Dream Defenders, and CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic relations). "The Anti-Fa flag was displayed by the group in front of County Center after the reversal vote by the Commission on the 19th" McCallister noted. Law Enforcement agencies are beginning to consider Anti-Fa a domestic terrorism organization due to their anti-free speech views and violent tactics. They have been involved in confrontation with citizens and law enforcement in California, Gainesville, Oregon and New Orleans. Research sources for the Study included social media sites, voter registration rolls, speaker sign in cards, property appraiser records, and other internet research sites. HK Edgerton, Past President of the NAACP (Asheville, NC branch) and SSH FL member said "the black man in America is being used as the 'weapon of choice' against our Southern family by those that want to divide us". "Based on what the research shows, it doesn't surprise us that pro-monument Commissioners were targeted for violence like this. What we're dealing with here are some really bad hombres" added McCallister. "If the Commission lets their decision stand, those who allowed it will be remembered with siding with the radical left against their constituents" McCallister concluded.

SAVE SOUTHERN HERITAGE Inc. is a 501 c(4) public welfare corporation that educates & advocates on behalf of Southern Heritage & History. It was started in 2015 in response to the knee-jerk Anti-Southern institutionalized bullying and Erase-ism levied against the people of South Carolina by Governor Nikki Haley, after she broke all previous agreements about how South Carolina's historical veterans and their symbols should be treated and respected. The Florida branch was activated in mid-January 2016, in response to three initiatives in the Florida Legislature that are part of a hate campaign led by Anti-American extremists, who refuse to respect the various cultures that make up the fabric of Florida's society. Since that time, it has grown in membership and has been active in Heritage battles throughout Florida including the We'll Remember in November Campaign that resulted in #heritagehater candidates to loose elections in Florida.
