What’s the World Coming To?

22 Jun

Mitt Romney said something I actually agree with! Take down that Confederate flag, confound it.

The Confederate Sates of America was a separate country, which declared war of the United States – and were defeated. They had their own President, their own army, their own currency. And their vice-president, Alexander Stevens, made it quite clear that their philosophy was based on the idea that “the Negro is the moral, physical, and mental inferior of the white man, and slavery is his natural condition”.

If this is the “Southern Heritage” of which they are so proud, how about I hang a swastika from my house?

    The leader of a white supremacist group cited by Charleston church murder suspect Dylann Roof made $65,000 in donations to Republicans, including several to Republican presidential candidates, The Guardian newspaper reported Sunday night. The paper reported that one of the candidates, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, will return the $8,500 he received from Earl Holt, leader of the Council of Conservative Citizens. An online manifesto purportedly written by Roof, the suspect in last week’s murder of nine blacks at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, said he learned about “brutal black on white murders” from the Council of Conservative Citizens website.

    Holt also donated to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, and to several current and former GOP members of Congress, including Iowa Rep. Steve King, Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake and former Minnesota Rep. and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, according to the Guardian. Full article

    Heard today that the (R) governor of SC is moving to have it taken down.

    Hell is, if not freezing, cooling off a bit.
