1ep9bK.AuSt.70COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said Monday that the Confederate flag near the state Capitol should be moved, reversing an earlier position she had held and adding a powerful voice to the growing chorus of calls for the flag’s removal.

“It’s time to move the flag from the Capitol grounds,” Haley, a Republican, said at a news conference on Monday.

She was joined at the news conference by South Carolina’s two U.S. senators and an array of other elected officials. Her announcement, which took place near a statue of John C. Calhoun, was greeted by a round of applause and cheers inside the statehouse.

    NOW THEY ARE GOING AFTER PART OF AMERICAN HISTORY AGAIN.
    ANYONE GOT ENOUGH MONEY TO GET US OUT OF HERE…I WOULD,I’M FED UP WITH ALL THIS CRAP. THERE IS NO “AMERICA” ANYMORE. MY GRANDKIDS WANT TO GO SOMEPLACE FOR THEIR FREEDOM AND LIVE WITHOUT ALL THIS STUFF..THEY SAID, THEY HAVE NONE HERE. THANKS FOR LETTING ME VENT.

    • Waaaaaa!

      If you’ll notice, the Gov isn’t calling for the destruction of the battle flag, or the banning of it. It can still be flown on private property. She’s calling for it to be removed from the front lawn of the state capitol. It will be placed in a museum honoring the state’s past, just as it was in Florida.

      Stop playing the poor poor pitiful white man, oh woe is me, I’m being discriminated against.

      Take your grandkids to the museum and let them see the flag and learn about what it meant and means.

    Gov Haley has finally become a disgrace, not standing up to the radical left with their campaign of “never let a tragedy go to waste.”
    And the mindless mob, as exemplified by Jay Leno’s (and others) person on the street interviews, where he shows that the majority do not know who the vice president is, or who their US senators are, surely are unlikely to know that there were black slave owners, that blacks fought for the south. And that Lincoln did not issue his emancipation proclamation until nearly two years into the war.

    She is surrounded by big hungry wolves making sure she bows down to their racist demands. They want to show the world their power. They want to show the world you don’t mess with the negros in charge of South Carolina because they will rewrite your very history and bend it to advance their racist agenda. Why? There’s lots more money to be swindled, through intimidation, from the stupid white sheeple.

      I love the word “Chorus of calls”. Is that the same Chorus of calls our Police received every day with threats ? Obama will show up for the funeral of a former Standing Senator that just so happens to be black, but not much when it come to the two Police Officers who had been shot in the head by a radical. Jesus was asked by these Clergy men in regards to who they should serve and Jesus asked , ‘ what is the picture on the coin, their reply was Caesar, so his remark was, ” Give unto Caesar what is Caesar and give unto the Lord what is the Lords”. This Senator had also a choice and that was to Lead as a Senator for SC or be a Pastor of an ALL BLACK CHURCH. He wanted both and so did the congregation, of course being a Standing Senator had no bearing on their choice ! . Is that fair? How can he represent just one group, it’s not like he was in charge of the NAACP. I call that a Wolf in Sheep’s clothing. Now this White Boy will be used as a Sacrificial Lamb, as they insist for the Death Penalty. No Death penalty for that escaped cop killer that shot a Police Officer 22 times. Police lives do not matter.
