Well I watched “Is Mississippi Still Burning”
Joseph Goebbels would be happy with the production were he around to see it!
The producer had four shots of the Mississippi State flag that includes the Battle flag in its design.And a couple of shots of a Confederate monument. Both were mentioned in the segment.
But what wasn’t mentioned was neither had a damn thing to do with the crime! The man (PUNK), who is accused of the murder, and by all accounts it is a hate crime and should be dealt with as such, had no Confederate connections.
It was mentioned that he hung out at a gas station, I guess by the same logic used to tie in the Confederate part of the story you could have tied in the Company that owned the gas station.Was it Shell, or Texaco?
And what brand of beer did he drink? It would have made just as much sense to tie in the gas company or the beer brand as it did The “Confederate Connection” which is NONE!
It was just another inflammatory piece of Yankee journalism, designed to vilify Southern Heritage!
I hope the guilty person gets the death penalty!
And you can be sure my flag won’t be at half staff when they throw the switch!
