Kissimmee - Members and friends of Save Southern Heritage Florida wish to extend our heart felt sympathy and sadness over the tragic shooting this weekend of three of the City of Kissimmee's brave police officers, two of whom were mortally injured in the line of duty. "Our heart goes out the the families and friends of the slain Kissimmee Police officers and our thoughts and prayers are with them" said Doug Guetzloe, Save Southern Heritage - FL spokesmen. "And we pray for a speedy recovery of the injured" he added. "I have a special appreciation for this tragedy, as my great-grandfather, Special Agent John V. Waters, was the first Federal law enforcement officer shot and killed in the line of duty in Florida" Guetzloe said. (Pictured here)

This tragic shooting came in the same week as protesters around the country created anarchy and violence as part of "Resistance Summer" featuring the a drama playing out before our eyes to erase Florida history in Orlando and elsewhere around Florida and the nation. Save Southern Heritage - FL can't help but notice that those calling for deaths of our law enforcement officers (Black Lives Matter) are the same people calling for the removal of Southern heritage. Black Lives Matter protesters have chanted "Pigs in a Blanket - Fry them like Bacon" at rallies, and also have led the initiative for removal of Tampa's Confederate Monument. A recent study of those involved in the 'take down' project and social media posts revealed BLM activists are leaders in the Erase-ist movement of taking down "Beautiful Sculptures" in Florida. "We condemn Black Lives Matter and their anti-law enforcement, anti-history agenda" Gutezloe said.

"Law Enforcement Officers and Confederate Monuments have something in common...Black Lives Matter wants them both taken down" Guetzloe 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.

Save Southern Heritage does not condone racism and as such we do not support any group or person that does. We respect the rights and privileges of all as bestowed on them by their creator and expect those in our association to respect and treat others as they themselves would wish to be treated. 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.
