The Green Bay, Wisconsin, escort company called for the removal of a Confederate flag that hung at the Green Bay Public Library in Green Bay for nearly 30 years.
The company called on a local community group, the Southside Association of Escorts, to “take the flag down and start a dialogue.”
The association released a statement saying it supports the removal “to honor the brave heroes who fought and died to keep the Union and the Confederacy together.”
The Southside also has an organization dedicated to “rescuing” Confederate flags.
The Southside said the Confederate flag has been used in a number of incidents and incidents of violence, and called on the city of Green Bay to “remove the flag as quickly as possible” because the city “has a history of being politically correct.”
“The South has a long history of allowing its political correctness to get in the way of protecting the innocent,” said the Southsides statement.
Green Bay’s police chief said he is “not going to stand by” the flag.
