April is Confederate History Month. If you listen real close, you can hear the hissing from libtards throughout the country. Many look upon the antebellum South as a bunch of slave owners whipping and raping their Uncle and Aunt Toms. The truth is only a small segment of the population owned slaves, including some freedmen and Indians.To demonstrate the intolerance of the social stigmatizers, we look to Raleigh, North Carolina. This is the sesquicentennial of the War of Northern Aggression. A confederate flag was to hang in the capital until April 2015, when federal troops began their occupation. Now you’d think the statist would celebrate the symbolism of a federal takeover of a sovereign state. You’d be wrong.
North Carolina NAACP president the Rev. William Barber was shocked Friday when he was shown a photo of the flag by the AP.“He is right that it has a historical context,” Barber said. “But what is that history? The history of racism. The history of lynchings. The history of death. The history of slavery. If you say that shouldn’t be offensive, then either you don’t know the history or you are denying the history.”
Barber couldn’t immediately be reached Friday night, after the decision to take down the flag.
Mr. Barber should rethink his stance on the symbolism of the confederate flag hanging in the state capital. He like many other progressives can celebrate the death of federalism, while looking down their noses at southern whites at the same time.
