It’s always symbolized racism and symbolized traitors, full stop. Nikki needs to stop.
Nikki Haley says Confederate flag symbolized ‘service, sacrifice and heritage’ until mass shooter Dylann Roof ‘hijacked’ it
Hey Nikki Haley, @nikkihaley #nikkihaley #confederacy #traitors #racists #america
Here’s a quick treason 101 lesson for you, since you seem to have forgotten what the confederacy was all about. FYI, you would not have been elected governor if they had their way, so there’s that.
Should you have further doubt about the true goals of the Confederacy, in the very weeks before the war broke out, the Vice President of the Confederacy, Alexander Stephens, made it clear that the Confederate cause was about maintaining slavery and white supremacy.
He said in his now famous ‘Cornerstone speech’ that the Confederacy’s “cornerstone rests upon the great truth, that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery — subordination to the superior race — is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.”
