I’ve been writing a new editorial over the past two days, which I decided to publish at a later date, because of what I bore witness to this morning.
Today . . . July 10, 2015, at around 10am, I watched with great sadness, as yet another part of the American Dream was torn-asunder, as DIXIE and respect for Americans who fought for States Rights about 150-years ago, was trampled by special interests in the name of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.
What South Carolinian Governor Nikki Haley did was unconscionable, by using the symbol of the Confederate Battle Flag to apologize to the world for a senseless murder of nine Black Americans while at prayer.
HAD THE INSANE MURDERER photographed himself with the STARS AND STRIPES, opposed to the STARS AND BARS, before he went on his murder spree . . . would Haley have permanently removed the US Flag?
IN HER COMMENTS . . . Haley said that this was the right thing to do, because the Flag was divisive, and reminded America of a time when the South practiced Slavery. It was also made clear that the Confederate Battle Flag was an impediment to attracting business to the State of South Carolina.
1 – No one stayed away from investing in South Carolina because of the Stars and Bars.
2 – The Battle Flag of the Confederacy did not fly in support of Slavery.
3 – And when Anne and I travel throughout the USA this coming winter, we will NOT be traveling through South Carolina, unless it is simply to drive straight through.
4 – As we set-up for the winter in Austin Texas, Anne and I will proudly fly the Confederate Battle Flag alongside the Stars and Stripes, the Canadian Maple Leaf and the Star of David.
What happened in South Carolina today, was one of the most divisive things I Have seen in America since Obama declared the phony WARS supposedly waged by Conservatives on women, the elderly, the young, and the poor . . . when in all reality, HE DECLARED WAR on White Cops and successful self-made business people . . . AND ON AMERICAN VALUES.
PEOPLE ARE BEING SOMEWHAT QUIET . . . but under the surface, they are seething. No one wants to have his or her face rubbed in it, especially 150-Years after the fact, and most specifically when the FLAG OF THE SOUTH IS BEING SCAPEGOATED because it’s become the popular thing to do.
When Governor Haley said that she is treating the Battle Flag of the Confederacy in a most respectful way – SHE IS FULL OF CRAP, and is as insulting as possible to the people of the South, while pretending to show them respect.
There was no reason for Haley or anyone else to pander to the LEFT and disgrace yet another part of the history of America and a significant part of the American population. BUT, SHE DID IT ANYWAY, as she applauded in front of the cameras when the Battle Flag Of The Confederacy was lowered from the State Flag Pole for the last time.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION . . . that magnificent Painted Quarter Horse standing over my shoulder on the Home Page of Galganov.com is J.E.B Stuart, named after the last great US Calvary Officer. We affectionately call him JEBBY.
