At the BJ’s warehouse in Jacksonville Florida Bobby Tillet has been banned from parking in the employee parking lot for displaying a Confederate Flag in the back of his truck. He now has to walk 10 minutes to work. He says “It’s about heritage; it’s about pride,” Tillett said. “I don’t look at it much different than the American flag. There’s been a lot of blood spilled over that flag, too, and I love that flag, and I’ll fly it ’till the day I die.”
I say more power to you Mr. Tillet. Keep her flying we were on the right side of that war and this is still Dixie! Not to mention this violates the first Amendment which states clearly.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.“
So now there is a boycott on BJ’s which I whole heartedly support. I am asking for you to call or email BJ’s wholesale and tell them what you think of this attack on free speech. Just ask yourself what they would do if an employee had a Peurto Rican or Mexican flag on there truck.
