HERITAGE DEFENSE COMMITTEE
|NCAA Boycott of South Carolina sporting events.
The NCAA currently has a policy that no “predetermined” postseason events (bowl games, tournaments, etc.) are to be played in South Carolina. This is in response to the continued presence of the Confederate battle flag on the Statehouse grounds.The newly forming Heritage Defense Committee is currently formulating a defense/offense plan for hopeful implementation in November.
NASCAR continues to publicly denounce it’s southern roots and pander to the anti Confederate Flag elements.The Heritage Defense Committee is also currently formulating a defense/offense plan for implementation which will be apparent at a number of future races.
Directors of the Midland Independent School District are considering the possibility of dropping Confederate references at two schools named for Robert E. Lee in response to a parent’s complaint. The board directed school officials to consider changing Robert E.

Lee High School.This matter is currently under investigation by the Heritage Defense Committee.
