Less Than Half of Mississippi Republicans Say They Would Support United States Against the Confederacy
I’ve lived in Texas all my life, so racism isn’t anything that shocks me. Why should it? I see it all the time. To see a Confederate flag displayed somewhere, or hear someone use the “n-word,” isn’t anything out of the ordinary. Hell, many of the people here truly believe “the South shall rise again.”
You know, the well known phrase often used by racists referring to the time when slavery was still legal in the South.
Well, a recent poll done by Public Polling Policy found that only 41 percent of Republicans in Mississippi would support the United States if there were another Civil War. Thirty-seven percent said they would support the Confederate States with 21 percent saying they weren’t sure.
That means a full 59 percent of Mississippi Republicans aren’t loyal (or aren’t sure if they’re loyal) to the United States of America.
