Coming from the same man who used an executive order to disingenuously remove the Tom Watson statue in November 2013 (he claimed it was due to repairs at the State Capitol, only to later approve an MLK statue as a replacement), we are not in the least bit surprised that Nathan Deal caved yet again to the Left:
“Georgia’s governor has quietly removed Confederate Memorial Day and Robert E. Lee’s Birthday from the state calendar, replacing them with the innocuous-sounding designation “state holiday.”
The change, first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, was contained in a memo dated August 5 sent by Governor Nathan Deal to state government staff. …
According to Brian Robinson, deputy chief of staff for communications for Georgia’s governor, the holidays are meant to honor the Confederacy and Robert E. Lee. “That is why they are in state law, and we are not denying that or pretending that’s not the case,” he says. However, he adds, “those names are not spelled out in state law.… It just says, ‘These shall be state holidays.'” It, is, therefore, within Deal’s power to rename the holidays on the state’s calendars for planning purposes, Robinson says.
According to Jon Richards, front page editor at Peach Pundit, a Georgia politics website, Deal’s decision to rename the holidays—but to do so quietly—makes good political sense”
This is why Donald Trump is leading in the polls in Georgia … it is because conservative voters have given the Republican Party absolute power in Georgia, not only in the state legislature, but down to running the last White Democrat in the Deep South out of Congress in 2014, only to get cuckservative leaders like Nathan Deal who lie to get elected and trash Southern heritage once they are safely in office.
Wow I wish a third party would be started already.
Georgia has always been the front line for this for some reason. The State flag changed and it’s just gotten worse. I have Dallas and Houston, but the State is big enough that most people can write off those foreign colonies.
Here’s hoping TN, MS, AL, and AK don’t lose their flags any time soon.
Georgia is always the frontline for this for some reason. Atlanta has too much influence. It started with the State flag and it was downhill from there.
Here’s hoping that TN, AL, MS, FL, and AK don’t lose theirs any time soon. Virginia may be the most debased southern State, but its flag is still the best.
I’ll tell you what, I’ve never seen more Confederate flags than I’ve seen in the past few weeks. Mind you I’m in the Mid-Atlantic area, so Confederate flags are usually much less common than they are in Virginia or Georgia.
Yesterday I saw a man driving through Chester, Pennsylvania with a Confederate flag plate. Anyone who knows Chester knows that it’s like driving through Philly ghettos. It is heavily black and the area where I saw this truck was is the most black section of Chester with the run down row homes. He is not the first person in this area I’ve seen with a Confederate flag plate. a week ago I saw another truck outside a barbershop with a Confederate plate.
And just today on I-95 heading through Wilmington, DE I saw a truck with a big Confederate flag flying from the back.
I wish the Republican Party would collapse in favor of a new party. Who needs a second Democratic Party which promises the same PC crap as the Democrats except for more wars, especially for Israel?
In somewhat related news, John Kasich seems to have come out for “Black Lives Matter.”
The Republican Party has been infiltrated for years. They’re Zionists.
