When Nikki Haley, the RINO Republican governor of South Carolina, caved to demands by politically-correct extremists and their attempts to rewrite the history of the South and the Confederate flag, a promise was made that this would bring “unity” to a divided country.
But alas, as is always the case when dealing with the PC-Left, nothing is over until they say it’s over. Instead of putting the fire out, her actions have helped to fuel the blaze as it spreads across the rest of the South.
Richard Rose, the president of the Atlanta NAACP (or should that be NAAPC?), is calling for all Confederate symbols to be removed from all government-owned property and plans to pursue making those changes during the next legislative session; a demand that includes a call to sand blast a giant carving of three military heroes of the South memorialized at Stone Mountain Park.
Stone Mountain Park features the largest relief sculpture in the world, and features: Jefferson Davis, who was president of the Confederacy, General Robert E. Lee, and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. And even though it is the most recognizable tribute to the Confederacy, Rose’s demand to remove flags and memorials extends to all state property and land.
Lawmakers in Georgia, who will be participants in any legislative sessions held to address Rose’s petition, are calling for the state to eliminate Confederate Memorial Day and Confederate History Month, apparently ignoring the fact that Confederate soldiers are U.S. Veterans under federal law.
In Alabama, following the Charleston, S.C. murder of nine people in a church by a mad man, Gov. Robert Bentley ordered four Confederate banners that flew at the 88-foot-tall Confederate monument at the state Capitol to be removed. And in Mobile, AL., the city council voted unanimously to remove the Confederate flag and other banners from the city’s seal. With these actions providing momentum, the Huntsville, Alabama NAACP pledged to fight for the removal of the battle flag from the uniforms and patrol cars of state troopers.
And this just in…
Al Sharpton is pressuring Chevrolet to end their sponsorship of Kid Rock’s summer concert tour — not because he displays the Confederate flag, but because he told the PC crowd to “kiss my ass” when he refused their demands to separate himself from the flag. And with General Motors essentially a branch of the Obama White House, look for them to cave to their demands sooner rather than later.
When you think about it, that’s the next logical step for the PC-Left. Start by reshaping government via rewriting history, then move to reshaping the free market capitalism by going after the wallets of businesses and individuals.
