Why Isn’t The Media Talking About the Murder of THIS Black Man Who Supported the Confederate Flag?

Earlier this week we reported on the death of a black man who was a longtime supporter of the Confederate flag. Since our story, though, the Old Media establishment has pretty much ignored the murder of this man and the editor of the website of former Congressman Allen West wonders why.

On Monday we talked of the “accident” that took Anthony Hervey’s life. But the media sure hasn’t.

Anthony Hervey, of Oxford, Mississippi was well-known in the north of the state for his support of the Confederate flag, and in fact wrote a book in 2006 titled, “Why I Wave the Confederate Flag, Written by a Black Man.”

However, 49-year-old Hervey was killed in a car crash on Sunday, July 19 in what appears to be a “road dispute.” His passenger in the car, Arlene Barnum, of Stuart, Oklahoma survived.

Have you heard anything about this in the news? Of course not. It doesn’t fit the narrative.

…Was this a “hate crime?” We may never know. But you can be darn tootin, if Mr. Hervey had been against the flag, and it was a car full of white guys who ran him off the road, we’d already have a Department of Justice investigation into this and it would be ALL over the network news.

Instead, the grieving family of Anthony Hervey is left with a GoFundMe account to support his widow.

God bless you, Mr. Hervey. You will be missed. But not by the racist Old Media establishment, apparently.
