Why does Huck support the confederate flag in SC?
"Governor Huckabee understands that all the average guy with a Confederate flag on his pickup truck is saying is he's proud to be a Southerner," the ad states. "Mike Huckabee understands we value our heritage and why."
The flag, long seen as a symbol of racism by some and as an emblem of Southern pride by others, once flew atop the Capitol in South Carolina. A 2000 compromise removed it from the dome, though it remains on the Statehouse grounds and flies next to a Confederate soldier memorial.
Campaigning in South Carolina on Thursday, Huckabee said the government should stay out of disputes over the Confederate flag.
"You don't like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag," Huckabee told supporters in Myrtle Beach, S.C. "In fact, if somebody came to and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell 'em what to do with the pole, that's what we'd do."
Similar story at CNN. Does he support a Nazi flag flown by German Americans who are proud of their heritage? Whatever good each culture produced, it's impossible to ignore the atrocities committed under those flags too. I wish Huckabee would repent of such idiotic pandering.
