This is total insanity. One cannot wear even a costume from our past? And he apologizes for it! Are costume parties out now? And what about doing an historical film?
If a confederate soldier is bad, what does that make a democrat? Seriously, democrats are the party of slavery. They are not just wearing the cloths, they are living the principal.
He must resign immediately! Anything less applies only to a Democrat.
This virtue signaling horseshitz is getting way out of hand. Groups Renact civil war battles, Custers last stand and all manner of historical events. People need to pull their heads out of their arse or get a plexiglas belly button so they can see.
Any man, or woman for that matter, who does this mea culpa nonsense to placate the PC crowd is a disgraceful, cowardly person, IMHO.
CW battle site re-enactments are about to become verboten. Sayonara Gettysburg.
Have they outlawed Civil War reenactments yet?
Somebody is doing the Confederacy...
Governor, You are a dumbass. They will not stop until they have your head.
It was an OLD SOUTH party, but I guess that in and of itself would be bad enough, without the uniform.
As a side issue, I have read some concern that Civil War re-enactment will see a decline because of this kind of backlash against the CSA uniform. Some Confederate re-enactors are reluctant to continue to appear in the uniform because of irrational reactions such as this. And it’s pretty hard to re-enact a battle with only the troops from one side.
As a history buff who sees this as a great effort to bring history to life for people, I think this is a tragedy.
It wouldn’t do any good to say that there were slave states in the Union, or that the war was about preserving the Union, not slavery.
The only thing that pisses me off more than our brave new Orwelian world is a man who is ashamed of his heritage.
... so he’s gonna run for Lamar’s seat?
These stupid ass people make me sick!! Hello???? Tennessee was a SOUTHERN STATE and all this didn’t start becoming a real problem until 2016. How many monuments have been moved? How many Republicans have been shamed (even though they ask for it because they won’t stand up for themselves)?? How much more are we supposed to take of this insanity??? Start giving it back to the bytchers and tell them to get over it.......it happened......at least they’re not as bad as the DEMONRATS from the past (and still bad today). Just a few short years ago the Demons had an ex KKK member that said the N word on national TV and where was the outrage??? I’ve had it!!!
So...he was posing as a Democrat?
Believe this is just the tip of the iceberg.
When a pol wants to get a little ‘attention’ all he has to do is ‘confess’ to some idiotic thing.
I once whistled Dixie so I guess that will ruin my chance at the presidency.
First stop for the Virginia Guv ‘apology tour’ was supposed to be Virginia Commonwealth University - a predominately BLACK school.
THEY told him to stay away, so he elbowed his way into a group called ???(something) 24, 24 former VCU students (from the 60s) who got arrested at a sit in.
Also the Lt Gov’s ‘accuser’ is insisting Virginia start an investigation into her charges and she is pulling the ‘feminine card’ pulling out the ‘we ALL deserve to be heard’.
The the other stooge proudly proclaimed that Virginia was going to join the suit against PDJT and the wall.. My local fish wrap (weekly) has an online version and the letters to the response of the article is 100% AGAINST him. (the AG).(as of Wednesday AM the 5 they printed are all against him..they even printed my ‘insults’...
Maybe there is some hope....
This is disgusting. Tell them to go to hell if they don’t approve.
35 years ago at my university the KA’s entire identity was Confederate flags, Robert E. Lee, beer, beer and beer.
Damn - I once wore a military uniform.
When the democrats take over I’ll be condemned for wearing one.
KA was definitely the preeminent “Southern” fraternity on my campus, and well known for having the most popular football players.
SAE was well known for young men from wealthy families.
TKE was kind of the “nice guy” Frat - several of my good friends were TKE, even though the unspoken Frat Rule was that your best friends should come from inside your Frat, not outside.
Apparently someone at USA Today has been combing through yearbooks (900 so far) and finding these things.
