The Virginia Flagger’s Grayson Jennings announced that he would began what he called “Monument Watch” on the historic Monument Avenue. This comes off two recent cases of vandalism on the Jefferson Davis statue at the intersection of Davis and Monument. Jennings made this announcement in the most asinine way possible. To the best of my knowledge, there are no Virginia Flaggers that live on Monument or the adjacent neighborhoods, The Fan and the Museum District. The entire thing ignores what the neighborhood wants. I do not know what the neighborhood wants, but at no point did the public get informed about who was coming to their neighborhood. This post is an attempt to tell the public about this groups activities.
Jenning says in an interview, “What happened to diversity and inclusiveness? It just doesn’t include southern White people for some reason.” Jennings has immediately made this about race.
Jennings posts pictures of the monuments he has watched over the past few nights. None of these statues include Author Ashe.
Jennings is also open about being a secessionist. He proudly displays a sticker on his back window of his truck that reads, “SECEDE.” He also encourages people to resist the laws of the United States yet wants to run a neighborhood watch.
Jennings is “kicked back” with CC Lesters. At the time of this photo, Lesters is caught up in the middle of a case involving his ex-girlfriend kidnapping her daughter.
Another case involves a former Virginia Flagger affiliated film maker claiming that he subdued two would-be vandals. However, it was later proved to be a faked story.
Another Virginia Flagger, Tripp Lewis, was arrested while protesting at the VMFA.
