SOUTHERN HERITAGE GROUP ISSUES LAW ENFORCEMENT ADVISORY: DOMESTIC TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS TARGETING COMMUNITIES IN FLORIDA
Flag of Anti-Fa after Vote of Hillsborough County Commission's Vote to Remove Confederate Memorial
Tampa - Save Southern Heritage Florida ("SSH FL") announces today that Advisories have been sent to law enforcement agencies in the Counties targeted by the Southern Poverty Law Center and an identified coalition of Communists, anarchists, Anti-Fa and Black Lives Matter, and other radical left wing groups.
A Dossier (link here) was provided to law enforcement agencies showing hundreds gathering in Tampa at a post Charlottesville, VA "Heather Vigil" that occurred less than 30 hours after the death of a young woman who was attending an un-permitted counter protest. The Dossier shows known terrorists groups, as well as others that are illegal to operate under Florida law.
The Dossier is of particular interest to us as the 'Vigil" morphed into a protest of the Confederate Monument, where members of the various groups convened at the monument and desecrated it, as had been done previously by supporters of moving the memorial. The Anti-Fa flag was flown by 'take it down' supporters after the vote by the Commission that reversed their original vote to maintain the Historic 1911 "Memoria in Aeterna" War Memorial.
"We believe that all the communities identified in the Southern Poverty Law Center's Report "Whose Heritage" are vulnerable to domestic terrorists" said SSH FL spokesman David McCallister. "We have seen intimidation, threats and illegal acts committed to threaten, intimidate and bully elected officials into removing our Southern History in several Florida communities including Hillsborough County, Manatee County and Broward County and we felt the pattern needed to be reported to Law Enforcmement he concluded.
Anti-Fa has recently come under scrutiny in activities not related to Confederate Monuments. Similarly, the Southern Poverty Law Center has been discredited for labeling Christian groups as 'hate groups'.
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. SSH FL 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.
