The South Will Rise Again

Some people just don’t get it, apparently. South Carolina’s state House just passed a resolution by a 50-35 margin requesting the Dixie Chicks perform a free concert for SC troops and their families. Best quote:

“I think it’s an olive branch to the Dixie Chicks,” [Republican Rep. Catherine] Ceips [who introduced the resolution] said.

“But only after they apologize first for exercising their free speech, is that correct?” asked House Minority Leader James Smith, a Democrat.

You tell ‘em, James!

All my childhood my grandfather told me to stand up for what you believe in. My belief is that if there is a North and South there will always be a war. If the confederate flag is stained with slavery then the United States flag is, too. God bless the South and the people that defended her and that will.
