Confederate flag fight conceals Democrat history of hate

July 10, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the House of Representatives to get back to work on the appropriations bills:

“If the appropriations process is going to be held up over an amendment defunding the placement of Democrat-created Confederate flags at Confederate grave sites at national cemeteries, and we’re not going to get any work done until this business is settled, then it should all be tied to a single vote including renaming the Richard Russell Senate Office Building, who was a pro-segregationist, removing every hammer and sickle symbol — a symbol which tens of millions have died under — from every gravestone in Chicago’s Haymarket National Cemetery, renaming the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, named after the President who resegregated the entire government including the military and hosted a showing of ‘The Birth of a Nation’ at the White House and praised it, renaming all federal courthouses and corrections facilities in West Virginia named after the late Senator Robert Byrd, a former leader of the KKK and Democrats in the Senate, and renaming the Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove on the Potomac, due to LBJ’s fondness for using the N-word.

“It is ridiculous for Congress to relinquish the power of the purse that the appropriations process enables, due to this symbolic idiocy of the left, so let’s just get rid of all of it. If purging the cruel, racist history of the Democrat Party is their goal, let’s just help Democrats expunge their shame for all time — and get back to the urgent business of Congress.”
