Do you remember that kid who went on YouTube to profess his love for the Confederate Flag a year or so ago? Well, Byron Thomas has taken his love for all things Dixie Mason to Capital Hill, where he is an intern for Tim Scott, the Republican Senator from South Carolina.
Given that he has just been on the job for fewer than two weeks, you would think the young man would simply get settled in and learn his job. But not Mr. Thomas.
He sent out an emailwhich was later sent to the Huffington Postto fellow interns and staffers asking them to say the Pledge of Allegiance each day. The email is below:
Thomas seems pretty committed to Americathe old one that is. Check out one of his recent tweets: byron thomas
His Facebook status focusing on the same subject is not any better:
It seems like this young mans mind is still in slavery. SMH
Just when the fecal material is floating around signaling the end of the Republic, someone like this brave man flushes the toilet and you realize the fecal floaters are isolated cases, only background noise.
God bless him. A man who truly loves this country. He puts the race baiters on both sides to shame.
Just what is your beef with him again?
To which flag?
My beef with who?
Thought it was your write-up. The author doesn’t like him too much.
Want on or off this ping list? Just FReepmail me.
What the heck is “racist patriotism”?
That right there itself told me we’re supposed to despise this man.
God bless this young man.
like anyone who displays such southern heritage he needs to be rehabilitated or imprisoned for hate crimes
investigated by DOJ for civil rights violations at large
being black is no excuse
this is awful
When people say “Southern Pride”, only liberals ignorantly claim that means a love for slavery.
