Rebel Robocalls: There’s Video, Too

SOUTHERN PARTISANS MOUNTING MULTI-MEDIA CAMPAIGN IN DEFENSE OF THEIR BANNER

|| By FITSNEWS || Last week this website reported exclusively on a series of “robo-calls” targeting S.C. governor Nikki Haley and members of the S.C. General Assembly regarding the proposed removal of the Confederate flag from the grounds of the S.C. State House.

(To read that report, click here).

Well it turns out there’s video accompanying the phone message … as evidenced by the clip below (which targeted S.C. Speaker of the House Jay Lucas).

Take a look …

The Confederate flag has become an issue again in the aftermath of last month’s horrific, racially motivated “Holy City Massacre” – the mass murder of nine black churchgoers at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C.  The Mother Emanuel victims – including S.C. Senator Clementa Pinckney, the church’s pastor – were gunned down during a Bible study by Dylann Storm Roof, a 21-year-old white supremacist who used the Confederate flag as his calling card.

We’ve written extensively in the aftermath of the shooting in support of removing the flag – and doing so expeditiously.  We’ve also provided some extensive historical context related to this debate (here and here).

According to sources on both sides of the debate, legislative sentiment has shifted in recent days in favor of keeping the flag up – although we’re told there are likely still enough votes in both chambers to remove the controversial banner from the State House grounds.

The problem?

A planned amendment to replace the Confederate flag with another secessionist banner – the Bonnie Blue flag – is threatening to queer the whole deal.

FITS referenced the “Bonnie Blue” amendment in this report, but we’ll have a fuller treatment of this proposed “replacement banner” (and the controversy it’s generating) soon.

In related news, don’t miss our exclusive reporting (here and here) on ill-fated efforts by powerful S.C. Senator Hugh Leatherman to buy off Confederate flag supporters … with your tax dollars!

Got up at 4:30 a.m. in preparations. Cooked, visited with family, went swimming and set off fire works. By 10:00 p.m. couldn’t keep my eyes open long enough to watch one of my fav. tv shows. It was a fun day.

Hope you had a Happy Independence Day too!

But why don’t White Lives Matter?

I think this website, despite all of its claims, is siding solidily with the left, as it mostly does. It looks like a lot of closet liberals are being outed. While the Democrat Party is demonstrating how close-minded and hateful it is.

And I think a lot of those going overboard for the worst in our culture, may be sorry they showed their hand, when all the dust settles.
From a political angle, the GOP will clean up on this.

So not being openly racist is siding with the left? The GOP will clean up its act, maybe. Looks like Trump is being thrown under the bus for his remarks. Don’t think other republicans aren’t taking notice and correcting their behavior accordingly. You racist conservatives will have to start a new party outside of the Tea Party.

Your claims of racism are based in myths and paranoia, because you know what a fuck-up you are. You put the flag up, the GOP took it down. It’s your act that is being cleaned up, it seems, by Republicans. And you’re too stupid to figure it out.

No, I know history. That crap won’t pass with me. And it doesn’t pass with the majority of citizens. Hence, the flag coming down for good and joining the nazi flag in the white-trash bin. Sorry, poor little racist bitch. You lose….again. LMFAO

Nice job. Sounds like the same voice for sure. Watch a few other Mountaintop Media ads and they share a similar editing style. Lots of splits screen with swaps.

Just the good ol’ boys
Never meanin’ no harm
Beats all you’ve never saw, been in trouble with the law
Since the day they was born

Straightenin’ the curve
Flate’nin’ the hills
Someday the mountain might get ’em
But the law never will

Makin’ their way
The only way they know how
That’s just a little bit more
Than the law will allow

Just the good ol’ boys
Wouldn’t change if they could
Fightin’ the system like a
Two modern day Robin Hood

…threatening to queer the whole deal.

While the Social Justice Warrior Project appreciates your support of “Gay Marriage” and removing the Rebel flag…usage of phrases like “queer up” might just get you put on a Wormeresque “double secret probation”.

Who loves the flag turmoil most?

The hatemongers and the gunfondlers — for main examples, the Council of Conservative Citizens and the NRA. They don’t want the discussion to be their racist hate propaganda and the free arming of every sociopath.

Jen July 5, 2015 at 6:29 pm

And the NAACP. After all, they have raised millions off that flag . And the Democratic party as this helps them run a “black man,” which brings out the black vote, for President while actually running Hillary Clinton.

Oh yea, the left loves it.

True. It clearly shows the totally racist character of the GOP’s southern strategy. It is indeed useful for that.

I’d like the flag to come down,but it shouldn’t be a priority.Nine people died,and before they were buried,those who could, turned a tragedy into an asset,and a resurrected flag debate.What? The closest point to a gruesome mass murder is to a flag ? This further cheapens their lives.Shameless.
