Follow Up: Exposing The VSU “Protest Group” Marching On Flag… *UPDATE* Identified Group was armed – University Alert – Police Now Seeking Suspect Eric Sheppard Jr. – Video Added: “Armed and Dangerous”…

update-1UPDATE:  Since we exposed the individual(s) and group, VSU has now issued an alert.  Apparently the group was armed during the event, and the primary agitator is to be considered “armed and dangerous”:

Eric Sheppard

update-1UPDATE #2:  Media now beginning to report on Eric Sheppard Jr and here’s a local news report showing him in a confrontation with police while lying about his threats and being armed.

Original Article – Last weekend we brought to light a group of “Campus Protestors” at Valdosta State University who were marching on the U.S.A. flag.

Valdosta State University

Michelle ManhartThe MSM picked up the aspect to the story where Air Force veteran Michelle Manhart confronted the group, picked up the flag and subsequently found herself in a confrontation with the groups advocates and the police. (backstory)

However, despite the media interest, and with numerous media outlets seeking a larger understanding as to the cause of the incident, no-one from the protesting group would speak to the media:

[…] The demonstrators declined to identify their group to The Valdosta Daily Times or speak with a reporter about their cause, but they did engage VSU students in heated debate. (link)

Why would the group refuse to identify themselves?  What is the purpose of the group?  Who, and what exactly, are VSU administrators allowing to take place on their campus?

The protestors obviously want to avoid sunlight, so we dig a little deeper and share what exactly their purpose was.

Here’s pictures of the “campus activists” as shared via their social media:

VSU campus

And this is the group leader: Eric Sheppard Jr.

vsu campus 2

The group self identifies as a Black Supremacy movement seeking the elimination of all white influences upon their lives.  This is the same group who supports the conspiracy theory behind the death of Kendrick Johnson; and these are the same social justice advocates who are the foot soldiers for the professionally black Grievance Industry.

To better understand their position LISTEN HERE (FB Video).   A more vulgar version of their screed (they didn’t know they were being recorded) is AVAILABLE HERE.

When civil rights attorneys Benjamin Crump, Daryl Parks, Natalie Jackson,  and media financing entities like Russell Simmons et al, dispatch their calls to the social justice warriors to activate their protests – the group represented at this VSU protest are the people who respond.

Generally in the same ideological vein as the New Black Panther Party:

Black Panther Tweets

….these are the same people behind the “F**k The Police” movement, and the “Black Lives Matter” movement.  They are also aligned with the “Black Brunch” groups who you might have seen disrupting lunches to advance their race-driven causes.

Whenever an opportunity presents itself they immediately respond to advocate for their overall grievances.  Ferguson to New York, to Madison, to Charlottesville, to North Charleston, to Baltimore and to Valdosta State University… the construct of their social justice cause continually looking for an opportunity for an audience; and a complicit media more than willing to sell their narrative.

Perhaps now, with a larger context, the recent sunlight in Memphis Tennessee makes a little more sense:

memphis 6 t

memphis 8 t

memphis 7 t

memphis 5 t

…all connected to the same ideological world view.

    Funny how the term “Black Supremacy Group” didn’t make it into the articles.
    But it doesn’t mean some of the media didn’t know. Willful blindness.

      I am going to tag in to these earliest comment to give you all some of the latest in local flavor. The protesters claimed to be aligned with the Black Panther Party and really identify with their early views of death to the oppressors aka “whitey”.
      Someone earlier asked if there was a leadership problem at VSU and I shared that the fairly new President had just turned in his resignation. Turns out Pres. McKinney showed up plastered (drunk) to a big VSU function and so he was forced to resign. So I guess the U is somewhat rudderless.
      One last piece of info which is interesting is that Kendrick Johnson’s 22 year old sister, Kenyetta, was shot in a car yesterday at @ 2AM. Just saying.
      Lastly, the mayor of Valdosta is stepping into the breech and there will be a big rally supporting the flag and apple pie on Friday. I’ll share more as I know more.

      • Dr. Mckinney did not show up plastered drunk…get your facts straight…it was a member of his administration that was intoxicated after an event and she resigned. I am a 1982 Valdosta State Graduate. Dr. Mckinney has been under siege due to the commie faculty that was furious that one of their own got canned. They hounded Dr. McKinney and he resigned this month. I should know…I had written Dr. Mckinney about the commie professor and that professor started attacking me as an alumni….Dr. Mckinney shut the professor down for the attacks…..btw I am sure the commie faculty approved of what the black panthers were doing…I hope they are happy now…

    WOW! What a great job exposing those agitators. It’s nice to know the college had no interest in their activity. It must be because someone in admin knew who they were and approved.

Perhaps they should all get a 1st class ticket on Air Zimbabwe to Mugabeland and see what happens when you forcibly remove all white influences from a diverse society.

Some thought he committed suicide but I , along with others in the family, are convinced he went to get that pistol to shoot my aunt, he slipped, and accidentally shot himself.
        Happily, my aunt remarried and spent the last 20 years of her life with a man who cherished her.

      All Black people? The ones at my church each Sunday seem to do just fine in line checking their kids into our preschool ministry. And all the Black men seem ot have their pants on te right way.

      All of the Black people in my workplace, with their various advanced degrees, have their pants up, and seem to be able to wait in the various lines we have here.

      Those that commute with me by bus, carpool, or vanpool have all seemed to have their pants up, and have been able to tolerate the line to get on the bus. Quite cordial, in fact.

      In my opinion, this type of talk transgresses the CTH policy, and will eventually salt the soil of the CTH tree.

            ““BlackMilitaryTakeover” my @$$, they can’t even stand in a line or pull their pants up.”

            To appreciate my follow-up, you have to appreciate this:
            1. You do not know these specific individuals, or their specific local group; you have no empirical evidence about their ability to stand in line, or keep their pants up on their hips.

            My response was in the conditional, not the affirmative: “Who is ‘they?’ All Black people?”

            In the final assessment, I believe that an educated,reasonable Conservative would have to conclude that your comment was not about the capacity of these four or five individuals to execute a Black Military take-over of the United States of America; it seems to be about Blacks, generally.

            Suspecting that, I ASKED if that were the case. I did not say; I asked.

            You could have either clarified your point, or you could have diverted the issue by attacking me.

            You chose to attack me, rather than clarify your point.

            –My comments about getting sent into moderation Hell:
            I called out frank racism in comments on CTH a couple months ago, where it was blatant and I copied and pasted CTH rules verbatim, and since that time, all of my comments have been “awaiting moderation” until about a week ago; CTH NEVER sent me a private note about this, and have had no in-comment-stream note about why.

            Hence, my suspicion/accusastion: CTH claims to not tolerate frank racism, but is weak in comment-enforcement of this.

Context is everything.

        As I’ve said before and I think overall the tone of comments and postings here shows this is the opinion of the management and vast majority here–there are great people of every color, ethnicity, and gender/sexual orientation. There are also animals masquerading as people of every color, ethnicity, and gender/sexual orientation. It’s about the individual and how they behave, not what colors we are.

        When we all get to the point where we’ll call out someone who looks like us for bad behavior quicker than someone who looks different, we’ll be well on the way to a better world. Defending and being defensive about criticism of bad people who happen to be colored similar to us just perpetuates the problem–it’s racism and one of the factors that causes it, rolled together.

I don’t assume I know what anyone is thinking at all times. One, I had to ask my direct reports if they were working on Martin Luther King Jr day. Our company is closed but our dept is open. Any one who works gets free lunch and a floating holiday. One person told me I had no right to ask. It was racist. I told them I was told to ask but thank you for sharing their concern, I’ll let management know. The second, I had a person I have worked with for 25 years tell me I had white privilege growing up. I don’t like to speak about my childhood but I decided to share. I’ll share here too. My Dad was USMC for 10 years, then a CO and a cop. We still were on food stamps for a number of years and money was always tight – I have multiple siblings. I asked if that was white privilege. That quieted that person for a moment but this person said that I got into college and all my jobs because of my skin color. It took me 6 years to get my BS working all kinds of jobs. Both my parents worked by that time and so did I, I didn’t qualify for very much of anything. I told that person they were wrong but I was now uncomfortable with the conversation and walked away. I thought we were friends but I avoid that person now. Both of these people have 1 or more high degrees. One person I know went to an ivy league school on a full scholarship only available to minorities.

      I agree with you, though. Money talks.There again, we may just be pushed (further) out, than we have been already.

      aside to LastDemocrat- Les never said- or implied, “all”. The Black people most of us know in real life would be in as much danger from these thugs as any other White/ Hispanic/ Asian because they “act White”. Look at the man who was attacked for walking the White lady to her car.

      Les, lots of white people need to DISENROLL (how I love that word!) their kids until the college(s) clean up this mess. The “disenrolled” would probably benefit from a JOB where they learn the value of MONEY and the RISK one takes running a business in the world of GOVERNMENT invasion. Meanwhile, maybe the college can divest itself from some of the brainless courses that leave graduates unprepared for working a $15/hour job, not to mention contributing to the growth of our economy.

      Why-oh-why-oh-why-oh, are adults with an iota of brainpower allowing this? Maybe stella’s video on use of marijuana should be reconsidered, now considering some of the decisions that allow such behavior by both parent and child, the community and our illustrious leadership in academia. Deprivation of brain cells?

    BTW, is it agreed that it’s not fair to use the kiddie posts above in the ‘MARIJUANA! Is It Actually Good For You?’ thread?

    So why have my two posts disappeared without any message or indication? And the earlier thread scrubbed of my initial post although it displayed the first day? WTF?

    I tried to post an interesting link to what appears to be “the leader” based on the photograph.
    One last try, munged a bit in case there’s some filter that’s tripping on the link:

    Look at

    The guy’s name appears to be Eric Sheppard, Jr.

    A group stomping on the American flag in public in an act of protest (by any standard a provocative, attention getting/seeking act) suddenly does not want to speak about whatever it is that they were protesting about?

    Makes one wonder of these idiots even know that “protesting” is supposed to have a purpose.


    • georgiafl says:

      I think they were RECRUITING as much as protesting, but they were mainly ‘showing their hineys’ as my Mama used to say.

      No respect for any form of hatred for the United States of America – or disrespect for our flag – despite the corruption in DC and this administration in particular.


      • georgiafl says:

        I would feel the same way about any supremacist, hate group and any such disrespect for the flag if they were red, white, black, brown or yellow skinned.

        I have decided to be color blind and expect the same behavior standards of any group, race, creed, etc.

    Did they really use the C word, P words and H word? I’m so offended! Time to call in the White Grievance groups to protest and demand action!!! *

    White ppl are smart enough to not give a rats azz what you call them. I believe thay stems from a strong self confidence and maturity. Which these in your face groups lack.

    If not for Michelle Manhart, this racist thug’s backpack probably would have never been searched. I think the president should now apologize to Michelle Manhart and reinstate her rights to attend campus functions.

    Also I am not surprised Kendrick Johnson agitators were the ones doing the protest. And on the Kendrick Johnson front his sister was shot, in her car, in her back, by a passenger in her car a few days ago at 2am in the morning. They are saying it is accidental. If so it makes you wonder why they had a handgun out at 2am in the morning outside a convenience store.

    It’s odd the college administration had “No” knowledge of this group. I thought campuses were safe, guess that’s a joke.
    The administrations silence shouts volumns about who they approve to be on campus.

      Eric Sheppard attended McEachern High School, he’s one of GA’s own. I always think these folks are imported from some liberal outpost like Chicago, but I guess not.

      They call him “EJ Sheppard” if anyone is looking for his social media. Get it all before they scrub it.

      From the few pages I viewed, not everybody supports his crazy militant stand, there are a few standing. Not a lot, but a few. Maybe there is hope.


  32. georgiafl says:

    It’s time for Valdosta State to require permits for any demonstration or exhibit on campus.


    • georgiafl says:

      Hopefully, VSU will revise its code of conduct to prohibit disrespect for the US Flag and any hate/supremacist/violence promoting groups such as these people on campus.

    They trespassed one who had every right to be there. But not those who could be trespassed. This should be fought in court.

  35. I Knew it! That marxist BLT(black liberation theology) aka: step and fetch negros for the marxists like bill ayers to push their agenda! Notice the beard with no mustache just like a radical muslim! Sure wish these misguided souls would listen to ex-panther eldridge cleaver interview with charlie rose. Would save themselves a lot of headache! He became a republican towards the end of his life! Here is a example of him talking about the black bourgeoisie IE:obama’s ” That is why the number one task that we have in the black community is a coup d’état against our present leadership to strip them from that machinery that controls the community so that new ideas and new people can percolate up and then we can have a new agenda. But because of the way that it’s controlled right now, the number one task of the black politician who’s got these position should be to politically educate the black community but they didn’t do that because they knew that if the black community was politically educated the first thing they would do would be to get rid of them.

    So consequently the black community is devoid of any kind of democratic process. We’re under the dictatorship of the black bourgeoisie as it has never been before. And so they have federal money now to fund their political machine and keep any new people from moving, any new ideas from moving, and they’re not any more concerned with the poorer black people than the rich white politicians are concerned with poor white people.”

  38. Hank Rearden says:

    What is this “trespassing” process by which Michelle Manhart is supposedly “banned” from the campus? It’s a state university, not private property, right? I can’t see how anyone can be banned from state property without due process of law, requiring at minimum a hearing. Who has the power to simply declare her banned???


  39. Berger says:

    Wow that’s ridiculous. And Obama wants to end open carry and concealed carry of firearms. You may end up having to defend yourself from people like this in the near future.

    Police officers had confronted Sheppard and his friend earlier today (see video) and questioned him about his threats on the steps of the library. He denied the threats and that he had a weapon. They found the backpack later.


    • Les says:

      What about the other people with him? They have weapons. Are they on campus?

      Now we know why thugs don’t use their real names. And I mean all thugs this time, every single one in every single state in the Union.


      • Les says:

        Look at him laughing in that officer’s face. He knew he had a backpack with a pistol at that moment. He lied like it was nothing.

        Did you see the #EJisInnocent hashtag?

    Forget the Rhodes Scholar jokes, this guy doesn’t even register bare bones minimum intellect. What kind of an idiot leaves his back pack and his gun lying around at his own protest?


    • Les says:

      I’m thinking he left it this morning when students called police because he threatened to shoot people. In the video above (watch it if you haven’t yet) he isn’t holding the backpack. They most likely found it by the library after he talked to the police.

      He lied without blinking.

    If my memory serves me correctly when Georgia began the State Lottery they keenly wrote the legislative authorization to put the proceeds into the state educational system and mandated that current education expenditures must be maintained. Actually, the smartest education lotto benefit in the nation.

    As a result every single graduating senior gets a full scholarship to any in state four year college.

    On the competition end of the construct there’s a highly competitive High School Junior/Senior Summer program for a VSU Governors Honor Program.

    The actions of VSU are not just concerns for Valdosta State University students and parents. You can bet there’s a considerable amount of heat from the outside too. Politically and from the citizenry waking up to the failures of VSU administration.


    • mscynlynn says:

      The HOPE Scholarship has a 3.5 GPA requirement in core classes for graduating seniors. A student must maintain a high GPA in college to keep it.


      • Les says:

        The HOPE Scholarship program was in danger of going broke because high schools have been inflating grades for certain students. Those students then used HOPE funds to go to college/university and never finish because of the inflated grades. The GPA requirement is still 3.0 I think, but they added a requirement that you must maintain a 3.0 in college or lose the funding.

        I’m glad to see they made it possible for home-schooled students to receive HOPE. That was needed.


        • Mscynlynn says:

          Yeah, 3.0. My kiddo had the GPA when he graduated high school to receive it but decided to go to a school in MO on a golf scholarship. He transferred before his junior year to Armstrong but he didn’t qualify for the HOPE. I wasn’t sure of the reason since his grades were qualifying but there are other qualifying factors too.

    SInce the president of Valdosta is leaving, I am considering the value of notifying the University System of Ga, of which Valdosta is a member. Non-threatening, but asking them to get in front of potential problems.

    In other words, get ahead of the situation. Ideas?


  44. lilbirdee'12 says:

    If memory serves me right (I’ll try to check on this)… EX-Senator Cecil Staton (Rino) will be the new Vice Chancellor at VSU. He is anti-gun. He played a big part in college students not being allowed to carry when bill was introduced in Georgia. He had several embarrassing incidents while representing the state.

    ADD: Oh, and talk on the fb is that Flag Day is Thursday. The bikers are planning to show up on Friday, which is the original day that had been planned for counter-protests.
