[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Imagine a Democrat presidential candidate who doesn’t hate America and the freedoms guaranteed to us by the U.S. Constitution. Is that even possible anymore? Has the entire Democrat Party been “fundamentally transformed” by Obama and his minions into a bunch of anti-American Marxists?[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Well, ladies and gentlemen, to quote professional race hustler Jesse Jackson, “keep hope alive.”
Probable 2016 Democrat presidential candidate, former Virginia Senator Jim Webb, issued a balanced, sincere and educated statement regarding the latest target of of the progressive outrage industry, the Confederate Flag.
Writing on his Facebook page on Wednesday, Webb said that the aftermath of the Charleston shootings is “an emotional time and we all need to think through with a care that recognizes the need for change but also respects the complicated history of the Civil War.”

Rather than use the newly invented controversy as a wedge issue, delivering hate-filled racist and divisive rhetoric like Obama and Hillary Clinton on the matter, Webb, a former combat Marine, struck a far more unifying and level-headed note in his statement, something you might expect from a real President of the United States rather than a race-hustling divider (emphasis added):
“The Confederate Battle Flag has wrongly been used for racist and other purposes in recent decades. It should not be used in any way as a political symbol that divides us.
But we should also remember that honorable Americans fought on both sides in the Civil War, including slave holders in the Union Army from states such as Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland and Delaware, and that many non-slave holders fought for the South.”
Webb reminds us of the history that, “It was in recognition of the character of soldiers on both sides that the federal government authorized the construction of the Confederate Memorial 100 years ago, on the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.”[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]A unifying and thoughtful closing finished Webb’s statement:
“This is a time for us to come together, and to recognize once more that our complex multicultural society is founded on the principle of mutual respect.”
Webb is expected to announce his presidential plans very soon, but no official date has been issued.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
