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.


Image
RuneLFox

Yeah. And what are they going to teach the black students in class? It's an appeal to racists, plain and simple.


Image
Sharkbait41

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.

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.


Image
FlattestPancake

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.

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.

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.

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.


Image

Sadly not.


Image
Afrin_Drip

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...


Image

I can think of about 40% of that state that probably doesn't like the way their heritage had their experience with the Confederacy.


Image
LazerAttack4242

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.


Image
StIsadoreofSeville

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.


Image
SaneCannabisLaws

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.


Image

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"


Image

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.


Image

Isn't April the month that the Confederacy surrendered to the Union? Nice choice there.

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.


Image

They should secede from the US and live their Confederate dreams.


Image

It’s that month when they celebrate the Yankees defeating Atlanta to win the world series in 1999.

“Heritage to do what?”


Image

I mean, isn’t every month confederate heritage month In Mississippi?

Introducing "April Tools!"


Image

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.


Image

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


Image
jday1959

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.

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.

Oh great, so now we have Black History month AND anti-black History month. It’s important to have balance.


Image

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.
