Haley Betrays South, Blames Confederate Flag for Massacre

Congrats, moonbats. Your aggressive exploitation of the Charleston tragedy is paying off — but only because Republicans reflexively cave. Implicitly buying into the insane liberal spin that the Confederate flag somehow caused Dylann Roof to be a psychopath, Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC) is echoing calls from the ultra-left likes of Michael Moore and Caroline Heldman for its removal from the state capitol:

“The time has come,” Haley said. “That flag, while an integral part of the past, does not represent the future of our great state.”

The Republican governor, who avoided calls to remove the flag in the first few days following Wednesday’s shooting death of nine black members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, said taking the flag down would unite the state.

As always, finding common ground means capitulation to the left.

South Carolina’s two U.S. senators, Republicans Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham, joined Haley’s call to take down the flag. Graham, a GOP presidential candidate, was joined by a number of other 2016 Republican candidates after Haley’s announcement, as well as the Republican National Committee.

Anyone surprised?

Soon the Confederate flag will be banned, effectively if not actually by law. Following the advice of their sage Saul Alinsky, leftists picked the target, froze it, personalized it, and polarized it. Their target was the South.

Although liberals claim that the Confederate flag symbolizes politically incorrect racial views, to most who fly the flag, it represents the distinct culture of the South, which is hated by liberal elitists for resisting their ideology and is therefore deliberately conflated with slavery, as if there were people living today who think slavery should be restored.

It is an awesome power to be able to redefine the opposition’s treasured symbols to the point of rendering them politically obscene — all the more so when there is no official resistance due to the gutlessness of the GOP.

Next, Muslim activists will demand that the cross be removed from public sight because it is a hurtful symbol of the allegedly oppressive Crusades. The same script will be followed. Liberals will sputter and spew, conservatives will cringe and cave, the cross will disappear.

Erase its symbols, erase the South.

  3. No ‘Stars and Bars’? Next up, redesign many state flags that remotely resemble the old battle flag. Rewrite history books, seize former plantation property, raze all remaining plantations, rename southern states, ban the designation ‘South’ and replace with ‘coastal’, no more ‘d’ word (Dixie), remove all presidents before Lincoln from the currency etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum. Shall I go on?

    Say this for the guy: It takes some Jedi-level trolling to make yourself part of another country’s national debate about racism after a mass murder when you don’t even count as a celebrity there anymore.

    I like that he calls for actual jail time, not a fine or parole or some other more ceremonial penalty. If we’re going to carve out First Amendment exceptions for thoughtcrimes, might as well be bold about it.

    Very soon the flags and symbols of any white country are going to be similarly targeted. It’s already happened actually. In Britain people have been told it is ethnic intimidation to have the Union Jack in the window of their own home. The English flag (St. George) has been similarly attacked. Historical links to a period of slavery have nothing to do with this. Being white is crime enough. Listen white people, you will never compromise or appease your way out of the Left’s crosshairs.

    So if the Confederate flag has to come down, then so should the Union flag. I don’t know why anyone continues to venerate the Stars & Stripes so much anyway, particularly people who are opposed to this war being waged against Western Civilization by the Marxist Left. The USA flag is the very banner under which the West is being destroyed! Whatever that flag might have once meant, that’s so far back in history that those sentiments would be better represented with a whole new symbol. The Stars & Stripes today is a symbol for the degenerate cesspool of American “culture” — and the Yankee imperialism foisted upon a resentful planet. It’s the same Yankee imperialism forced on the South. We in Dixie were simply the testbed for what the entire world is now subjected to. Look at how rapidly the USA became an imperial force after the Civil War.

    The Civil War was brutal all around, but the North was especially brutal to the South. I think there’s a place for Confederate flags to restore some self-respect to the South. Not to advocate slavery, but to represent state sovereignty. The war wasn’t only about slavery – it was also about the right to secession. It was right to end slavery in the states, but was the Civil War the only way? The North got to write the history books and frame the narrative. You would expect the nuanced liberal to grasp this, but they are basically idiots.

    “I still want to be the candidate for guys
    with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks. We can’t beat George Bush
    unless we appeal to a broad cross-section of Democrats.” – Howard Dean

    I know all that.
    The other side of the coin was the preservation of slavery… pure evil.
    After over 150 years it is time this flag along with the slavery issue is relegated to history
    Fly it if you must…just not on gov grounds.

    I’m a New England Yankee. I hate pretty much everything about the South. The music, the food, the accent, the culture, cowboys.

    That having been said, I have profound respect for those who took up arms against impossible odds to protect their homes and their way of life. What is more American than that? I just ordered a Confederate Battle Flag pin.

    You know your history. The Republican party was the original Liberal party. The Democrats made a hard left and ever since, the country has no true Conservative party.

    Bah! Southern slaves lived far longer than they would have in the jungles of Africa. Their infant mortality rate was far lower as well.

    Indeed, the Civil War was about states rights. 99.999% of the men who fought the war didn’t own slaves.

    ‘What else should be banned?’ Dan Pfeiffer won’t ‘celebrate Walmart’ until they ‘stop selling’ these
    As Twitchy reported, Walmart has vowed to pull Confederate flag merchandise from its shelves. But for former senior Obama adviser and current CNN contributor Dan Pfeiffer, they’re not going far enough:

    Dan Pfeiffer@danpfeiffer
    I will celebrate Walmart when they stop selling the guns sold two aisles over from the Confederate Flags

    The concept might be nuanced and complicated beyond only the subject of slavery. Might have a component of the 1% wanting to control the cotton market with a major slice of States rights thrown in with the slavery issue. So jackhammer slavery and the defenders of it like the KKK, right? Well start with the Democrat voters that man it to this very day.

    George Wallace (D) for example, do the list of pretty much every mover and shaker in the movement to keep the black man down and you will see a bunch of Ds behind their names. Congrats you racist supporter you.

    The GOP could attempt some political jujitsu to reclaim the “high ground” by forcefully and clearly educating on this generations-old Democratic rallying banner and Dixiecrat source of pride — the Stars and Bars. Be sure to often and loudly associate it with the True Racist Party and progenitors of its domestic terror arm, the KKK. Keep rubbing their perpetually-out-of-joint, raised-in-the-air noses in it while swatting their collective behinds with the rolled-up Constitution and Emancipation Proclamation, repeating, “Bad dog! Bad, bad dog!”

    I’m not advocating its removal from view by easily-traumatized and offended eyes everywhere. Just make it a point — whenever challenged by Libs — to immediately and forcefully note (“I’m glad you brought that up…”) the generational association of this flag with the Democrat party and never be put on the defensive about it. Make them “own it” and all of the flashback-to-slavery imagery and emotions that it can generate, since they’ve surely purchased it by their actions (and the blood of free and slave people) through the years.
