Mississippi House Overwhelmingly Votes to Redesign Flag, GOP Governor Would Sign Bill

There’s a difference between listening to constituents and caving to the radical liberal mob. Politicians have yet to strike that balance, willing to bend over backwards for lefties.

A day after country star Faith Hill called for Mississippi to change its flag (which features the Confederate flag), it appears it just may wind up happening.

Who are we kidding? It is going to happen.

From Politico:

JACKSON, Miss. — Spectators at the Mississippi Capitol broke into applause Saturday as lawmakers took a big step toward erasing the Confederate battle emblem from the state flag, a symbol that has come under intensifying criticism in recent weeks amid nationwide protests against racial injustice.

The House and Senate voted by more than the required two-thirds majority to suspend legislative deadlines and file a bill to change the flag. That would allow debate on a bill as soon as Sunday.

Saturday’s vote was the big test, though, because of the margin. Only a simple majority is needed to pass a bill.

Republican Gov. Tate Reeves said Saturday for the first time that he would sign a bill to change the flag if the Republican-controlled Legislature sends him one. He had previously said that he would not veto one — a more passive stance.
