Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 08, 2020

As coronavirus spiked across the state, the Mississippi Sons of Confederate Veterans posted a copy of an April 3 state proclamation naming this month as "Confederate Heritage Month." Gov. Tate Reeves apparently signed the proclamation two days after he did an about-face and issued a statewide shelter-at-home order due to rising COVID-19 infections in Mississippi. #"God bless the Confederate Soldier. He shall never be forgotten. Deo Vindice!" the Mississippi SCV's April 3 Facebook post read about the proclamation. "Deo Vindice," Latin for "Under God as our Vindicator," appeared on the official seal of the Confederacy and was the Confederacy's motto.

"Why would anyone celebrate a bunch of traitorous losers?"

Because they believe black people need to be reminded of their proper place in Mississippi society. The funny thing about that is black folks have no illusions about what they mean to white people in Mississippi, or anywhere else in that country for that matter. Reminders are rarely necessary for the overwhelming majority of them.
