MITT ROMNEY: TAKE DOWN THE CONFEDERATE FLAG, ITíS ĎA SYMBOL OF RACIAL HATREDí
Breitbart ^ | 20 JUN 2015 | Awr Hawkins

Posted on 06/20/2015 11:20:07 AM PDT by South40

On June 20 former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney called for South Carolina to remove the Confederate flag from their state Capitol grounds in Columbia.

His call comes in the wake of the heinous attack on Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. It follows a photo of the suspected gunman, Dylann Roof, in which Roof is seen leaning against his car with a Confederate flag license plate visible on the front of his vehicle being widely circulated.

Here were Romney’s exact words: “Take down the Confederate Flag at the SC Capitol. To many, it is a symbol of racial hatred. Remove it now to honor Charleston victims.”

Yet he had many supporters here at FR. Not just in the general election against the Kenyan, but in the primaries.

Yet again these idiots use a tragedy to promote their political agenda and as for Romney, STFU.

The flag had nothing to do with any of this and Romney should know that the Confederate flag never flew on Govt buildings back then, it did not fly on any slave ship that was the stars and stripes. It did not fly out west to kill, rape, rob, the Indians either as that was the stars and stripes so STFU Romney you idiot.

Unbelievably, there are already people saying they’ll vote for Jebster if the RNC shoves him down our throats.

The Romneys came here to serve Joseph Smith about 1842, and no man in Mitt’s direct line has ever served America in the military. Mitt’s family rejected America and moved to Mexico in time, that is where Mitt’s dad was born.

His family has been anti-American for much of it’s history.

Maybe he should do some history lessons about the flag and then the stars and stripes flag flying over slave ships, out west to kill Indians before he opens his big stupid mouth.
