Hamilton BBQ Restaurant Proudly Displaying Confederate Flag Vandalized

Dionne Wilson, National Post, March 6, 2013

The owners of Hillbilly Heaven are expecting its best Wednesday turnout despite the soon-to-be opened second-location of the restaurant being vandalized.

The southern-style BBQ joint made headlines earlier this week for proudly displaying a confederate flag in its window.

Cameron Bailey, one of the owners of the restaurant, said he had his best Tuesday in three years and is not at all worried about the vandalism.

“This is the tip of the iceberg. There’s going to be a lot more of this, but whatever,” Bailey said.

The restaurant’s infamous confederate flag had blotches of black paint splattered on it, and the side of the restaurant had “Antifa zone” sprayed onto the black wall. While Bailey insists the flag is not a representation of superiority. The words “Antifa” is a reference to anti-fascism and seems to be a response to the flag.

The destruction of the flag is what Bailey finds most absurd about the vandalism. He said he will not replace the flag because he wants the people of Hamilton, his customers, to see what happens when “certain people” don’t get their way.

Bailey said he will definitely be pressing charges if the police are able to find the person or group responsible for the attack. He turned over surveillance footage to Hamilton police who are currently investigating.

The grand opening of his second location will take place on Monday, March 11. Bailey plans to hire more staff to accommodate the anticipated crowds.

“I expected a nice quiet opening, but I may hire off duty cops just in case,” says Bailey.

    Sounds like an infringement on a people and a culture. When can we expect the ACLU to show up to start investigations?

    • bigone4u

      Gave you a thumbs up because I get your point, but the A in ACLU stands for American. The vandalism took place in Canada. Maybe a CCLU?

      • Unperson

        The equivalent is the Canadian Civil Liberties Ass’n.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Civil_Liberties_Association

        Like the ACLU in the US, citizens of an AmRen turn of mind can’t count on the CCLA for much. Based on their current Board of Directors — which includes the former leader of Canada’s socialist party, the crusading lawyer who claims to have ended the death penalty in Canada, and two movie directors (a female immigrant from India; and the guy who did the ’80s remake of “The Fly”) — probably 98% or 99% of the cases they take are left-wing causes. Only a token 1% or 2% are right-wing causes — and even then I suspect they do so only so they have something to defend themselves with when accused of not being the fair, objective, “non-partisan organization” they claim to be.

        In short, the vandalism of a Confederate flag at a place called Hillbilly Heaven is the sort of case the CCLA should take on, but in all likelihood will not.

    This must be an example of some of that “liberal tolerance” I’ve heard so much about. As always with liberals everything is a one way street. Who is the real fascist here, the man displaying a flag or the liberal vandals that disapprove of free speech by defacing a flag? If these so called “Anti-fascists” ever met real fascists they would run away with their tails between their legs (if they even made it that far).

    • Jedi Mind Tricks

      Have you ever spoken to liberals in private? All they seem to talk about is hurting, killing, and controlling people. They all seem like brainwashed cult members.

      • So CAL Snowman

        That’s all they are my friend, indoctrinated cult members. Liberalism is nothing more than a suicide/death cult.

        • The Worlds Scapegoat

          Liberals hate themselves because they are failures. They hate others more because they are, or can be, successful.

      • bigone4u

        I sometimes post comments on a certain website run by a certain Arianna woman. The comments over there are mostly by “progressives.” They are absolutely insane, angry and completely detached from reality. BTW, my comments that involve facts such as a lower black IQ do not get posted.

        • Katherine McChesney

          HuffPost???

          • bigone4u

            yes, wasn’t sure moderator would let me name it

          • Luis

            Ever notice how much Arianna Huffington sounds like Eva Gabor’s character “Lisa Douglas” of the old “Green Acres” TV show?
            “Ahliva, you vant hot cakes”?

          • I don’t see why naming the Huffington Post is beyond the pale. It’s worthy of a few laugh tracks, sometimes.

    • guest

      Liberals are only tolerant to those who share their insane views. They preach about love, freedom, tolerance and equality, but they are the most hateful, intolerant, controlling, miserable, hypocritical, dishonest, and prejudiced people one will ever meet.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      “If these so called “Anti-fascists” ever met real fascists they would run
      away with their tails between their legs (if they even made it that
      far).”

      The Antifa group is a fascists organization: They are fascists anti-fascists. Antifa originated in the Soviet Union during the bolshevik revolution. Anyone who was opposed to the communist takeover was considered fascist and attacked – usually killed. Back then Antifa was almost entirely made up of jewish supremacists (zionists). Today Antifa’s makeup isn’t much difference; they do recruit some minority social dregs.

  • It’s aboot time.

    Yee haw, eh?

    • NYB

      Canadians refer to it as the ‘rebel flag’, and it is revered as a subversive expression of independent-mindedness.

      In Canada it is most often displayed on vehicles.

  • Jedi Mind Tricks

    Best way to solve this is to offer free service to the Hells Angels in return for making sure this don’t happen again.

    • Tim

      I bartended for twenty five years and you never ever ever want to cede control of your security and geography to an outside group. In about a band night, they`ll be a bigger problem than the one they came to solve…. Is that a fair statement?

      • Jedi Mind Tricks

        Not from the ones I’ve met, worse case scenario they stomp(or try to) everyone in the bar. I’ve met a few from an Illinois Nomad chapter, and they were pretty respectful dudes.

        • Tim

          If they respect the office of bartender and I respect the Hell`s Angels nation, then I, we and they have no problems…I`d say your perceptions were spot on.

        • Al Gator

          One percenters have NO political affiliations whatsoever. They really don’t give a rat’s petuttie about anything other than bux in their pockets. Like the Mafia, it’s all about profit. If you are stupid enough to get in bed with them, don’t be surprised when you wake up in the morning handcuffed to the bed.

          If you don’t know what a one percenter, club member, patch holder, etc. is, you should find out and AVOID them like the plague.

          Just ask the Rolling Stones.

          Oh, Hey Tim, VERY FAIR statement. An intelligent person should heed your warning.

          • Jedi Mind Tricks

            Believe it or not, all 1%er groups, and old school Mafia types have a code of honor and ethics, don’t believe me? Find a member of one and ask.

          • SmithandSmith

            Not all 1%’s are bad people. I know many 1%’s and while some are naturally bad, just as many are not.

            By the way, you want to talk about bad bikers, check out the chicks. They’ll stick a knife in your ear quicker than the men will.

          • Tim

            In my case it was a group of Green Berets heading off to train contras in El Salvador or whatever. On one big night their squad leader rushed up and said, “It`s out of control! Call the police!” And I said, @#$%&*!! We ARE the police!!” I was made an honorary Green Beret shortly after.

    • sbuffalonative

      The Rolling Stones tried that at Altamont. Along with the Mansons, it was the end of the Peace movement. It’s a bad idea to use the Hells Angels for secruity:

      http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=208_1226021428

      • Jedi Mind Tricks

        So you mean the Hells Angels helped put a stop to the hippie movement? That’s just another reason to like them. Never been a Stones fan personally.

      • Look at the the famous film clip again in slow-motion. They might well have prevented Mick Jagger from being shot that night.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      The Hell’s Angels are mentally ill losers. I have had to deal with a few of them at work. One of them told me that they randomly beat people up for no reason, so that nobody will mess with them. The fact that nobody messes with them is proof that randomly beating people up stops people from messing with them.

      • Jedi Mind Tricks

        Really? That’s hilarious.

      • Katherine McChesney

        One ex-biker turned minister told me that Hells Angels lived in the black community of Philadelphia to curb the tide of black violence. He said crime goes down among blacks wherever HA live.

  • Daisy

    I’m in love…there’s nothing cooler than a canadian flying the confederate flag…and he’s not even my type.

  • Matt

    As a white Canadian, I have a lot in common with white Americans (excepting liberals), definitely more so than the vast majority of non-whites on either side of the 50th parallel. Right now, we’re two separate countries, but who knows what the future may hold? Only in Canada and the United States are whites the majority population in North America (at least for now). If whites are ever forced to form their own country, I’m pretty sure that both white Canadians and Americans will join forces to set up shop. And that may help explain why people are starting to fly the Confederate flag in Canada.

    • Simonetta

      There is a theory among climate scientists that the release of methane from melted tundra will accelerate the warming to the point where the areas of earth below the 30th parallel will have daily temperatures of 140 degrees F (@ 50 degrees C) in about 100 years. In that case, Canada, Siberia, and Scandinavia will be the few places on earth where people will still live. So it is possible that there will be a great migration of Americans north in the future.

      • bigone4u

        If the blacks are too lazy to move when the earth heats up, then let them roast. The far north of Canada could be a new white homeland.

        • Non Humans

          I doubt that they will be too lazy to move, as hard as that is to believe. They will (try) move with us to maintain their womb-to-tomb entitlement culture. The real question is, will the libtards have drove the awakened majorities (whites) to such a hellish point by then that the nonhumans will be disallowed to follow us? I like to hope that they will be violently resisted…. and the libtards with them. I hope that in that future that libtardism is tried as treason.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Is this Al Gore propaganda?

    • Northerner

      I don’t think so. It’s a “southern style BBQ” and they probably just wanted the flag as a prop. Hamilton itself is 85% white, so chances are this vandalism wasn’t done by someone in a minority group.

      • TeutonicKnight67

        Most likely a libtarded, brain-washed college student.

    • TeutonicKnight67

      It may just come to that very soon brother…and I would welcome the creation of such a place whole-heartedly!

  • Bill

    How times change. Seems to me the Brits in Canada were quite accommodating to the CSA during Lincoln’s War on the Constitution. Now they vandalize a place flying the CSA flag.

  • The__Bobster

    Bailey said he will definitely be pressing charges if the police are able to find the person or group responsible for the attack. He turned over surveillance footage to Hamilton police who are currently investigating.

    If the Cannuckistan powers that be are like ours, they won’t try very hard to find the YT-hating punks.

  • IKantunderstand

    Our first amendment rights are under attack. Our second amendment rights are under attack. At what point, are we going to recognize the fact that we, as Whites, are under attack? The attack on the Bill of Rights is nothing more than an attack on Whites. The colored hordes allowed into this country don’t care about the Bill of Rights, in fact, most are diametrically opposed. Fight back! We must fight back. While we still can.

    STOP THE HATE

    • Bruce Whitmer

      Then go away

  • MAJ

    “The restaurant’s infamous confederate flag…”
    Infamous? Nice – what an objective piece of journalism.

    • Non Humans

      Since when has any journalism been “Objective”? Everyone has an agenda or bias, whether they admit it or not. That’s why any serious research has peer reviews.
      .
      Journalists and the media are about as far from objective as the sun is wide and massive. I would be surprised if any of them even understood the meaning of the term.

      • Journalism is the world’s second oldest profession. It started when someone first witnessed an act of the world’s oldest profession being negotiated and implicitly consummated. Then he went back to the village and told everyone what he saw. It was only his side of the story, ergo journalism has always been biased.

  • Unperson

    In college in the mid-80s I was handed or somehow came into possession of a Communist Party tabloid where the cover story was one of their black Party comrades climbing onto the roof of some Southern govt building and ripping down the Confederate flag. Maybe I’d been sheltered but this was my first exposure to the idea that this flag was the subject of such hatred. Thirty years ago, this radical anti-Southern mentality was the preserve of fringe lunatics like the CPUSA; now such radicalism is so pervasive that it’s not even safe to fly that flag in Canada.
    Further proof that, with each passing decade, the political norm gets dragged further and further toward the Left.

  • cecilhenry

    Liberalism is based on envy.

    Follow where that leads and you will have a big insight into who they are and what motivates them.

  • PesachPatriot

    The irony of this story is that the grandsons of the men who fought and died under that flag(which I have liked since watching the dukes of hazzard as a youngster) fought and died in europe to end fascism….there is no good reason to go attacking a flag on private property….it is kind of humorous to see canadian leftists this upset about it while most southern blacks in america don’t care and walk by the same flag without batting an eyelid….if the southern states represented by that flag are such awful, horrid, hateful places why does the majority of america’s black population still live there 150 years after slavery ended? I am a big fan of this particular quote from Gen. Robert E. Lee “It is good that war is so terrible, or else we should grow too fond of it”

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      The irony is, that flag really has nothing whatsoever to do with Canadian history, so there’s no reason for Canadians to get huffy over it.

      (the Nazi flag would be a different story, as Canadians warred against Nazi Germany. But as far as I know, we never really warred against the Confederate States of Amerca. The Union, yes. Confederates, I don’t think so.)

      • PesachPatriot

        The idiots who attacked the flag probably thought the barbecue restaurant was some hotbed of klan activity or something….its the only confederate flag most non-southerners know of….as a history fan i like a lot of the other rebel flags like the bonnie blue, the first national(the one with the circular stars) and the third national….people like antifa are always looking for something to be offended by and since there is nothing even close to real fascism in canada attacking a flag is the most exciting thing they could do to impress hippy girls on their college campus.

        In america young and some older northern whites tend to get more upset about the rebel flag than southern blacks because they consider secession treasonous. I was very interested in the late unpleasantness when I was younger( I thought the uniforms, guns, cannons, beards and sideburns were cool) and was the drummer boy for a Union re-enactment unit…since I went to school in the north we learned all about the famous blue guys first(lincoln, mclellan, sherman, grant) then one day the teacher told the class “tomorrow we will be learning about general lee and the important southern leaders” That night I asked my dad why a chinese guy was leading an army of southern white guys because the only lee’s in NY tend to be oriental….Hope that all is well for you in canuckistan.

  • SmithandSmith

    This makes no sense whatsoever.

    Bailey says he will not replace the Flag because he wants the Canadians to see what happens when people don’t get their way? Huh? Shouldn’t he be replacing the Flag if he wants to show what happens when people don’t get their way?

    Seems to me that by not replacing the Flag, all you’re doing is strengthening your opponents due to your submission.

    • Luca

      I’d replace it and mount a CCTV camera below it.

      • SmithandSmith

        I’d just hang a new Flag every time they vandalized her too but I’d hide the camera so they would feel safe doing it. I like to think the Police would do something once they had the picture of the vandals but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that since Canada only makes Canadians abide by their retarded “hate” laws.

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      Yes it does. If he replaced the flag with a clean, undamaged one, it just makes things look like nothing ever happened.

      Leave the flag as it is, then you can show what happens when “certain people” don’t get their way.

      Being able to show as well as tell is always the best way to present.

      • SmithandSmith

        Oh, okay, I see. He’s going to keep up the vandalized Flag. That, I’m okay with. Thank You for clarifying that for me. I was really confused about that.

  • bigone4u

    In New Orleans, Nicholls High School (don’t know who Nicholls was–Confederate hero?) called their students and teams The Rebels and flew the Confederate flag. When the blacks moved in and took over the name and flag were dropped. That was back in the early 70s. This sort of cleansing has been going on a long time in the public arena. Given that the desecration of the flag took place in Canada, expect the Canadians to rule it a hate symbol, punishable in criminal law. UPDATE: Nicholls was a Confederate General; school was renamed for abolitionist FREDERICK DOUGLASS in the 90s. How disgusting. White graduates of that high school back in the day are of retirement age now. No class reunions for them.

  • Epiminondas

    Liberalism is a disease.

  • HamletsGhost

    I hope he doesn’t clean those paint blotches off the flag. It actually improves the flag’s appearance, in my opinion. The Rebel flag is a fightin’ flag, and a few bullet holes in it shows not only what the flag is for, but what it’s fighting against.

  • Winston_Jack

    In the part of Canada where I live, on the (left) West Coast I have seen some Confederate flags displayed on vehicles and on the front grill of a few large long-haul rigs. However I don’t know of any businesses or otherwise which display it, and if they did it probably would draw the ire of the local self-righteous leftists. But then again I think up here that’s part of the allure amongst implicit (and explicit) White folks–it’s sort of a legal In-Your-Face to the local liberal trash.

    I myself have a nice grey woolen Confederate army cap or kepi amongst my hat collection, which I like to wear around town in the warmer coming up months. Due to a combination of multiculturalism and dumbed-down education, the vast majority of people simply don’t recognize it for anything other than just another cap. However, the reaction from the few (White) folks who did recognize it, from bus drivers to skater-punks, was ALWAYS positive!

    • Daisy

      Is Vancouver taken over by liberals? I’ve thought of moving there but am afraid of a culture that believes there is such a crime as hatespeech and is liberal.

      • FourFooted_Messiah

        You mean Chancouver?

        It’s an unofficial colony of China now, with a few pockets of East Indians and such, from what I understand.

      • Winston_Jack

        What FourFooted said is unfortunately true. In the district of Richmond, where the Chinese are concentrated, the (mainly) Chinese city council voted unanimously against a petition which would have called for ENGLISH to be displayed on publicly displayed signs along with Chinese. Add to that the fact that this is largely the San Francisco of the north and you end up with a very toxic brew. No amount of eco-nature-utopia-peace crap will stop this multi-CULT from imploding once the money and coercion can no longer keep a lid on things!

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      I fly the Red Ensign in my window. You know, the old Canadian flag that depicts Canada’s true cultural history, not that meaningless Maple Leaf immigrant rag we got in 1965.

      It can’t be vandalized, I’m up too high.

      • Winston_Jack

        Good on you! I’ve got one myself and fly it every Canada Day.
        I wouldn’t worry too much about vandalism either–I bet less people here simply have no clue, or think it’s the flag of one of the provinces.

  • Ella

    The South used to celebrate Jefferson Davis day (historic purposes) before the 80’s and now USA has MLK day to question. School children probably do not even know Davis’s legacy as history is re-written. Media treats Whites like we’re already dead and “gone.”

    Classic Soviet Canuckistan as Taki’s Mag writer Kathy Shaidle calls it.

    You can be sure the Anti-Fa graffiti artists are middle to upper-class kids from a posh suburb. Learning race relations from them is like learning climatology from a geneticist. Wait a second, Canuckistan has one of those too (see Suzuki, David)
