Mississippi governor signs bill to rid their state flag of the confederate emblem

by J.C McCallum

Well it’s over for the confederate emblem on the Mississippi flag. The governor has signed the bill tonight:

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves on Tuesday signed a bill that takes a historic step to retire the last US state flag to feature the Confederate battle flag.

“This is not a political moment to me, but a solemn occasion to lead our Mississippi family to come together to be reconciled and to move on,” Reeves, a Republican, said before he signed the legislation.

The signing caps a swift referendum on the flag from the Mississippi state Legislature, which passed the bill on Sunday following weeks of racial justice protests across the country. The flag, first adopted in 1894, has red, white and blue stripes with the Confederate battle emblem in one corner.

A commission will now develop a new flag design without the Confederate emblem that includes the phrase “In God, We Trust.” Mississippi voters will vote on the new design in November.

Wait what? LOL! You can bet that all of the crazy anti-God liberals will line up to sue over that too!! They’ll just never be happy, they choose misery always…
