Illinois Governor Reaps Backlash After Dumping Band From Fair Over Confederate Flag Images



(Punchable face )


Illinois Governor J.B Pritzker responded to the backlash created after he dumped a country band from the state fair over the group’s confederate flag images.

“The Confederate flag is a symbol of not just slavery, but of treason against the United States,” Pritzker told reporters about the decision to pull Confederate Railroad from the Du Quoin State Fair, per the Chicago Sun-Times in a piece published Wednesday

“That’s what happened under the banner of the Confederate flag many years ago in this country,” he added. “It is today the symbol of racists, of white nationalists, of the alt-right and so I do not think that the state of Illinois should be sponsoring something that is amplifying that symbol.”

When asked about performer Snoop Dogg still being on the line-up at the state fair in Springfield and the rapper’s use of imagery that has also been controversial, Pritzker said it wasn’t the same. On Snoop’s latest album titled, “Make America Crip Again,” there is an image of the rapper standing next to a cartoon body corpse with a toe-tag that reads “Trump.”

“There is an enormous difference between the political satire, the discussion by a single artist, his political views, and the representation of truly millions of people being enslaved, hundreds of thousands of people being killed under the banner of treason, essentially,” Pritzker shared

People have had enough of Big Government telling them what they can and cannot see in a supposedly “Free Country”. If you’re Offended don’t go see them.

This is why the American Revolution happened

Uh, question.

Since when have Democrats and primitives been concerned about treason against the United States?
