FLASHBACK: Top Democrat Bill Clinton Signed Legislation to Celebrate Robert E. Lee Holiday
The Democrats have a proud history of racism.
Democrats fought against the Union during the Civil War. Democrats founded the KKK as an armed wing of the liberal party. And, Democrats initiated the Jim Crow laws in the South.
So much to be proud of.
The Hillary Campaign knew playing the race card would be problematic during the 2016 election because of the Bill and Hillary’s support of Confederate holidays and Robert E. Lee.
As first family of Arkansas the Clintons set aside a special day each year to honor the Confederate Flag.
The Clintons even established a $100 fine for those violating the law:
Clinton had a Confederate flag-like issue of his own. Arkansas Code Annotated, Section 1-5-107, provides as follows:
(a) The Saturday immediately preceding Easter Sunday of each year is designated as ‘Confederate Flag Day’ in this state.
(b) No person, firm, or corporation shall display an Confederate flag or replica thereof in connection with any advertisement of any commercial enterprise, or in any manner for any purpose except to honor the Confederate States of America. [Emphasis added.]
(c) Any person, firm, or corporation violating the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be fined not less than one hundred dollars ($100) nor more than one thousand dollars ($1,000).
Bill Clinton signed Act 116 that stated “The blue star above the word “ARKANSAS” is to commemorate the Confederate States of America.”
