Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell Just Wants To Celebrate the Confederacy
New wingnut governor of Virginia Bob McDonnell simply wants to celebrate the rich tradition and noble spirit of the SLAVE OWNERS who fought for years against their own country, the United State of America, so they could continue to usehuman beingsas free labor, because that was the entire Southern Economy, plus you got to rape the slaves at night, and then kill them if they "caused trouble." Why are liberal socialists making a big deal out of this? Is there anything in the Constitution about blacks being people? EXACTLY.
McDonnell said Tuesday that the move was designed to promote tourism in the state, which next year will mark the 150th anniversary of the start of the war. McDonnell said he did not include a reference to slavery because "there were any number of aspects to that conflict between the states. Obviously, it involved slavery. It involved other issues. But I focused on the ones I thought were most significant for Virginia."
Tourism! Of course. The KKK loves to take a road trip, as long as that doesn't involve leaving the Commonwealth. [ Washington Post ]
