The Sons of Confederate Veterans says it will continue to fight any attacks on the Confederate flag in South Carolina.
The leader of the South Carolina chapter of the organization says it has made no specific plans to respond to the NAACP's new push to remove the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds.
Randy Burbage says another member of the organization was giving his personal opinion Wednesday when he said the group was considering putting up large flagpoles with Confederate flags along South Carolina interstates in response to the NAACP.
Dot Scott, president of the Charleston branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said that's fine. The fight is not over personal property rights, it's over the placement of the Confederate flag in a "sovereign" position on Statehouse grounds.
"What they don't understand is we don't care if they put one up on every house (of their supporters), we don't care if they put it all along the highway and on businesses," Scott said. "We're concerned that it is on Statehouse grounds.
The NAACP announced at its convention this week a renewed boycott and other efforts to bring down the Confederate flag that was moved to a capitol monument after a deal brought it down from the building's dome in 2000.
