"COLUMBIA, S.C. — A South Carolina group dedicated to “defense of the proudly Confederate South” rallied at the State House here on
Saturday, showcasing a mixture of Confederate flags and signs supporting Donald Trump as the Republican presidential primary unfolded across the state.
The South Carolina Conservative Action Council said the event was held in observance of the anniversary of the burning of Columbia after Union soldiers invaded the city in February 1865. Along with marking the burning of Columbia, the rally promoted the group’s recent endorsement of Trump’s presidential campaign. Trump eventually won the South Carolina primary handily, creating an even bigger problem for the Republican establishment.
Several neo-Confederate and white supremacist groups have expressed support for Trump. His campaign did not respond to multiple requests for a comment from Yahoo News asking whether it accepts the SCCAC’s endorsement and why such groups are drawn to Trump."
Hey, it must have helped, because trump easily beat his
two one Cuban American and one Canadian opponent in the South Carolina primary Saturday night. (Maybe this is why Cruz was trying to paint trump as being anti-confederate.) In the words of my Philly homeboys, McFadden & Whitehead, there ain't no stoppin him now. Jeb dropping out (Americans have seen enough Bushes for one lifetime) gives Rubio a glimmer of hope, but in my humble opinion it will not be enough. Yes, Marco will get some cash now, but money alone can't win you elections anymore.
Just ask Jeb.
Finally, did you hear the horrific story of that Uber driver who killed six people at random in Michigan this weekend? Scary stuff. It makes you want to delete your Uber app and just start taking the good old yellow cabs again.
And there are reports that he was picking up fares in the middle of his killing spree.
They are saying that the guy is an "average Joe" with no prior criminal record, and that they still don't have a motive.
Six innocent people minding their own business only to have their lives cut short by this monster.
The motive might be that he is just an evil dude who hates people.
