Ah yes, the proud heritage of being traitors to the nation over your assumed right to own people.
I suggest using a white flag to celebrate. It's relevant and historically accurate.
Yeah. And what are they going to teach the black students in class? It's an appeal to racists, plain and simple.
The only Confederate related celebration in April should be their day of surrender.
You never been to Germany during Nazi heritage month??? Quite the party.
Don't forget the racism and slavery.
Just burn a Stars & Bars every day in April.
Gotta counteract that racist black history month ya know?
Ah yes, just like Germany's month celebrating nazi heritage
Right? Like, can you imagine?
"A tribute to the fine soldiers who died for their country"
I don’t think it’s a coincidence as Hitler’s birthday was April 20th.
The woman at the center of Emmett Till’s death is still alive. Let that sink in whenever some idiot tries to claim racism doesn’t exist in this country anymore.
The fact that she admited she made the acquisitions up is infuriating to me
Nirvana was around for longer than the Confederacy. And is infinitely more suited for a month set aside to celebrate them.
And the Confederacy doesn't even have any bangers like On a Plain or Drain You. Once again proving that Nirvana is better than the Confederacy.
They do realize that they lost right?
They won reconstruction.
"ThE SOuTH wIlL RIsE agAIn!"
And that there are better ways to commemorate and acknowledge history.
How very Mississippi of them.
Celebrate by picking up a six pack of extra plush, double ply Confederate flags wherever fine toilet papers are sold.
A month long aprils fools joke, weird.
Now you're doing this shit to piss people off.
Can run over protestors if there is no protest.
Where will we put Bin Laden's statue for 9/11 day?
Brought to you be the state that didn't ratify the 13th Amendment until 2013.
Celebrate by burning a Confederate flag
They can all wave white flags in celebration.
Loser appreciation month
Imagine Germany passing "Nazi Heritage Month."
Racist fascists are gonna racist fascist in the name of Jesus. Ain't no stopping these hypocrites. They're only patriots in the eyes of the Confederacy. Everywhere else, they're ignorant, hate filled, Jesus humping GQP terrorists.
Oh I'm sure African-American residents of Mississippi are just lining up to celebrate Confederate Heritage Month.
Sometimes all you can do is just shake your head be ashamed to be a part of the same species as some people.
I had to convince myself that this was not from the onion.
It’s antithetical to the concept of the United States of America to celebrate an ideology where we are not united.. they are traitors to the end I guess...
I can think of about 40% of that state that probably doesn't like the way their heritage had their experience with the Confederacy.
It's also the month with April Fool's, 4/20, and Hitler's birthday. And the awareness month for Child Abuse Prevention, and Sexual Assault awareness, so maybe this is appropriate.
Maybe we can also have a British Heritage celebration. Make it on July 4 so it’s easy to remember. Makes just as much sense as this.
No can't use July 4th that's visit Moscow day for Republicans.
Some may be tempted to say, “tone.deaf.”; but I respectfully submit it’s more indicative of a separate.reality..
Official flag of Confederate Heritage
I'm from Mississippi. Believe me when I say, every day is a day in the confederate heritage month.
I’m also from Mississippi. Believe me when I say, this is pretty bullshit. Up in the northwest corner at least. Never even heard about this declaration until just now, and no one else around here has either. Then again, Tate’s proven himself to be on an entirely different level of brain dead compared to every other current politician.
So, essentially "Loser Month"
General disbelief aside, the part of the article that confuses me most is the section that reports that the last 5 governors have each signed this ‘holiday’ into effect periodically over 30 years.
Isn't April the month that the Confederacy surrendered to the Union? Nice choice there.
To be a fly on the wall in those classrooms.
Mississippi for ya'll. M.i. s.s.(so stupid).i. s.s.(so stupid).i. p.p. *(pretty positive) i. (am)
My god I hope this all blows up in their face. If anyone was going to get complacent in 2022 and 2024 let these acts of racism, supression fuel the need to get out and vote.
They should secede from the US and live their Confederate dreams.
It’s that month when they celebrate the Yankees defeating Atlanta to win the world series in 1999.
“Heritage to do what?”
I mean, isn’t every month confederate heritage month In Mississippi?
Introducing "April Tools!"
these morons jerk off to the confederate flag so much that they should just do the rest of us a favor, secede again and see how far that gets them.
At the very least, let the northwest corner stay? We want nothing to do with Potato Reeves and his bullshit
"And he ended his speech with 'Democrats are the real racists'"./s
Why is a Republican Governor helping Democrats celebrate their heritage? GQP types constantly claim that Slave holding Confederates were in the Democratic Party after all. Rhetorical question. RepubliQans are racist and ignorant AF.
What the actual ever fucking fuck is this shit?
As someone who lives in the south: Fuck the south
At least MS changed their flag?
People in Mississippi shouldn’t breed.
Man, the 49th Confederate Heritage Month is going to be wild, as it'd officially have been around longer than the thing it celebrates.
I can appreciate the urgency for the history lessons.
This IS his last term, right?
Cause fools, right?
Y’all lost tho
Oh great, so now we have Black History month AND anti-black History month. It’s important to have balance.
Two of my ancestors were confederate officers from Mississippi. I find that interesting but see no need to glorify what they did or pretend they were on the right side of history.
Losers celebrating losers.
