The Virginia Flaggers/League of the South are getting rocked with this development, as well they should. One of their biggest organizers got caught with a lot of child pornography. And we mean a lot.
RAPPAHANNOCK COUNTY, VIRGINIA – A neo-Confederate activist who has been a prominent face in the Virginia Flaggers as well as an associate of the White Supremacist and secessionist League of the South, and who was recently escorted out of a Donald Trump rally after unfurling a Confederate flag, has been arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.
Jason Charles Sulser, 39, of Stafford, VA, was arrested June 23 and charged with 45 counts of possession, reproduction, distribution, solicitation, and facilitation of child pornography. According to Virginia statutes, each charge carries with it a five to twenty year sentence He is currently incarcerated at the Rappahannock County Jail in lieu of bail. The amount of bail, if any, and future court dates are unavailable at the time of this posting.
Sulser has been a regular fixture at rallies and events put on by the Virginia Flaggers, a neo-Confederate group who’s Facebook page says is “A group dedicated to the promotion of and education in flagging as a way to protect and defend all Confederate heritage, and to the support of all who are willing to join in.” Despite pronouncements that they are not a hate group, it is Sulser, along with his friend League of the South’s Dennis Durham, who organizes the rallies in the state of Virginia that the Flaggers attend. Sulser is also the administrator for the Central VA Confederate Flag Rallies Facebook page, and in September a rally he and Durham organized in Washington, DC saw the gathered neo-Confederates chased out of town by a crowd that gathered to oppose them.
In December, Sulser, after unfurling a Confederate flag at a Trump rally in Manassas, VA, was escorted from the venue by police, the only reason given was his flag was blocking the view for others attending the event for the eventual presumptive Republican nominee for President. While not charged with any crime in that case, Sulser has been arrested for other offenses in the past as well, including domestic violence.
Details of Sulser’s arrest regarding how police were alerted to Sulser possessing child pornography are not known at the time of his posting. The One People’s Project-associated blogs Restoring the Honor and Overthrowdotcom have covered the Virginia Flaggers and League of the South extensively over the past year.
