The "treason in defense of slavery" dirtbags are at it again, right in the home of secessionist treason, South Carolina. The Congressional seat of former Rep. and far-right nutjob Mick Mulvaney, now the OMB Director under neo-fascist incompetent Donald "Rump" Trump, is open and the Rethug candidate clown car there is full heading to a May 2 election. Hanging on to the roof of the car is one Sheri "Eww" Few, who is staking her candidacy on bringing the traitorous and racist Confederate flag back into the public square. For Eww, the flag's a symbol of a "war on history" and it's removal a sign of "political correctness," despite its historical and unequivocal association with racism, slavery and hatred. She identifies herself as an "anti-Establishment" Rethuglican (i.e. a TrumpChump), but her views also accurately reflect the position of white supremacist groups and far-right militia, who have incorporated the racist symbol into their insignia.
It's long past time that the flag of treason in defense of slavery be banished from public display. Let a few rot in museum cases, or thumb-tacked to Eww's bedroom walls and those of other redneck cretins. But get it out of the sight of the rest of us.
