Recently there has been a great deal of interest in one man, Matthew Heimbach. (Here, Here & Here) It appears that Matt Heimbach has been a very busy man in the White/Confederate/Southern Nationalist movement for several years now. He is most famous for starting a White Student Union at Towson University in Maryland. Don’t bother looking for the WSU on the campus website, the university had sense to force its disbandment. However, that has not stopped the work of Matt Heimbach. He has recently shown up in the ranks of the Virginia Flaggers which were founded by Susan F. Hathaway about a year and a half ago. My guess is that Matt Heimbach did not find the flaggers radical enough for his version of white history.
I do not believe the Virginia Flaggers are a racist group. Despite that claim, I don’t think the flaggers are either aware of who is joining their ranks or care who is joining their ranks. With the small numbers that they muster on a daily and weekly basis, the more the merrier. And the fact that some white supremacist joins up with them on a march is not hard to believe and neither is their not knowing it at that time.
What is hurting their reputation is that despite knowing that these folks have joined in on a march and have joined their Facebook site, they have not denounced who these folks are or distanced themselves from these less than savory characters. Their continual silence seems to show approval for their new found friends actions and thoughts.
So let this be a lesson to you David Tatum, no need to make up pictures like this…
