Rick Perry stabs us in the back
As loyal reader Thomas writes, "Just a couple of years ago Mr. Perry publicly gave lip service to secession – typical politician."
And now this:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has come out against the marketing of a Confederate license plate in his state, an issue that could come up again in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
As the Austin American Statesman’s Jason Embry reports, the plate has been proposed by the Sons of Confederate Veterans, an ancestral history group that has been involved in litigation to display the Confederate flag in state buildings and on monuments around the country.
As the article says, this is indeed "an issue that could come up again." Oh, yes. We’ll see to that.
In the meantime, it’s clear that in Imperial America, every culture must be respected — except for one.
