Its Got to Go: Shepard Smith Calls for Mississippi to Remove Confederate Emblem From State Flag
Mediaite ^ | 7:58 pm, May 5th, 2017 | Joe DePaolo

Earlier, we posted about a speech delivered by Shepard Smith at his alma mater, the University of Mississippi, in which he discussed his experience coming out.

During that same address, Smith also talked about the Confederate flag — and called upon the state of Mississippi to remove the Confederate flag pattern from its own state flag.

“It’s got to go,” Smith said. “Put it in the museum. Don’t get rid of it. Certainly put it in a museum, used it as a teaching device, have it as part of your curriculum… Get it out of the stadium. Get it out of my Grove. Get it out of my state. I’m embarrassed by this.”

There was a citizen’s referendum when I lived there. His side lost badly.

Shepard Smith could come up my driveway, knock on the door that’s open and as me for some H2O.

I’d give him his thirst and then proceed to detail how he owes me a lifetime of cash, welfare, amnesty, free chit while inflicting reality on his non-existent skull.

That’s what I’ve been saying about Ms. Smith . . . “It’s got to go!”

Aren’t there any little boys willing to admit he sexually harassed them?

History gets re-written by the winners.

In a few more decades, many war memorials for things like WWII and Korea, and Vietnam, will be erased as well.

So will the memories of those who fought in those wars. They will be called “racists” and “imperialists.”

I wouldn’t mind a new law that strips a journalist/news reporter of all perks, privileges and protections afforded that industry the moment they cross over to activism of any kind or sort.

I remember the trips we would take trips to FL when I was a kid. I-95 wasn't fully completed yet so we traveled on US 301 through most of the Carolinas and Georgia. Other than Civil War related historic sites and cemeteries where Confederate soldiers are buried, as well as the old tourist traps along the way, you wouldn't see the Confederate flag much. IMO it's more prevelant now because the snowflakes are unable or unwilling to let sleeping dogs lie. In other words:

I was a Mississippian at the same time, and remember it well. The MSM predicted the old flag would be soundly rejected, but the referendum to replace it went down to defeat. In fact, about one-third of African-American voters voted to keep the existing flag.

In his remarks, Shep said something to the effect of “the confederate flag must be removed from his state.” If that’s true, he ought to talk to Andrew Cuomo, since Shep and his boy toy spend most of their time in Manhattan. He only goes back to Oxford for Ole Miss football games.

BTW, Shep left the University of Mississippi a couple of credits shy of his degree in journalism. There was an informal move about 10 years ago to waive the remaining requirements and award his bachelor’s. The proposal was soundly rejected by the journalism faculty. Of course, that was before Shep became such a flaming lib on camera. Maybe that’s been part of the ploy; prove that he’s enough of a “good liberal” to finally get his sheepskin from Ole Miss.

How about the emblem goes in trade for all homosexual TV talking heads retiring? Or Comey resigns? Something worthwhile...
