SC Lawmaker sends Confederate Christmas card to colleagues

by AP  |  published on December 4, 2015

A South Carolina lawmaker has sent out a Christmas card featuring a photo of the Confederate flag that refers to “memories of a happier time” and suggests those who voted to remove the flag from in front of the Statehouse ask God for forgiveness for their “betrayal.”

Rep. Chris Corley said Thursday that he sent the cards to his Republican colleagues as a joke. He says he sent a card with a photo of his children to others.

The card displays a photo of the flag when it still flew in front of the Statehouse. Lawmakers voted in July to remove the banner in response to the fatal shooting of nine black parishioners in a Charleston church.

    I never owned anything with a Confederate Flag on it in my 63 years on earth, until the leftist loons got their cowardly panties in a twist over it. Now, I buy anything and everything that has it and will continue to do so until America regains it’s Wisdom once again, instead of being on a Leftist Loon Tune Train to destruction thru Political Correctness Insanity! Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    This being “politically correct” is what is causing all sorts of problems. For instance, a neighbor of the husband and wife terrorists in California (who killed 14 people and wounded 21 others) saw some suspicious activity with them but said, she was afraid to mention it because she did not want to be labeled a “racist”. Being labeled a “racist” is the worst thing that can happen in our present society. This must stop.

    I will never understand trying to change history because we may not like it’s content. It is still history and will always be the history. Feels like a major wasted effort to try to change it.
