Fox & Friends talked with Marion Lambert who plans to fly the worlds largest Confederate flag in Florida. Lambert said, “Southerners have been marginalized ever since a 1991 NAACP resolution declaring the Confederate flag an odious blight upon the universe.”

President of Hillsborough County NAACP Chris Stokes objects to use of the Confederate flag in his community. Stokes told Fox & Friends that the Confederate flag is a symbol of hatred.

Stokes said, “Mr. Lambert doesn’t recognize that so he took it upon himself to erect this huge flag to, as he says, to build recognition and pride for something that represents hatred hatred.”
