Yet another jaw-dropping moment in South Carolina

South Carolina State Senator Paul Thurmond -- son of Dixiecrat race-baiter Strom Thurmond -- is calling for the Confederate flag to come down.

From The Post and Courier:

“For the life of me, I will never understand how anyone could fight a civil war based in part on the desire to continue the practice of slavery,” Thurmond said.

“Think about it for just a second. Our ancestors were literally fighting to continue to keep human beings as slaves, and continue the unimaginable acts that occur when someone is held against their will. I am not proud of that heritage.”
