Jeb Bush Calls Southerners and the Confederate Flag ‘Racist’

Publius Forum– Jeb Bush has now told the entire south that he doesn’t want their vote by claiming that the Confederate flag and all who support it are racist.


Bush made his comments on Monday at a campaign stop in South Carolina.

He told the media in Charleston that he has felt that the flag and those who support it are racist since he took down the flag in Florida in 2001.

“The symbols were racist,” the Republican presidential candidate said during a campaign stop at a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant.

“If you’re trying to lean forward rather than live in the past, you want to eliminate the barriers that create disagreements, and so I did,” he added.

Notice that Bush used the liberal terminology “lean forward” here? Quite telling on how he thinks.  MORE

    ” Some in the crowd also snatched a man, apparently a shopper at the Zebulon Road store, from a motorized shopping cart and dragged him to the floor, Bibb County sheriff’s officials said Monday.

    The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the store’s main aisle about 1:50 a.m. Sunday, “destroying merchandise displays and items,” a sheriff’s deputy’s report of the incident noted. ”

    If whitey would JUST pay for year-round school and nitetime bassball.

  8. It’s a shame we’re not allowed to ‘say the word’ today.

    Because there was a day when ALL would agree, this is the retarded Bush son.

  9. “If you’re trying to lean forward rather than live in the past…”
    …ya mean…like voting for yet *another* Bush?!?

    These loser candidates (incl. Hillary) are showing such entitlement to the job, it makes my head spin at times.

  10. What’s up with pictures of politicians with their fingers in their noses? And Jeb, I ain’t from the South, I’m a stumpbumper from Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho where we’re still fighting Indians, dontcha know. There is absolutely no effin way I will vote for this retard. NO MORE FRIGGIN RINO’S NAMED BUSH, ROMNEY etc.

  11. Between this newly shown attitude, his investment in Common Core, and pro-amnesty stance. . . . nahhh, I think I’ll take a piss. . . I mean pass on this Bush.
    The quicker he sinks back into the obscurity he came from the better off we’ll all be.

  12. “The symbols were racist …”

    How’s that, JEBBY? A “symbol” is a simulacrum of something real, something that exists, that one must interpret according to one’s prejudices or experience. If you choose to interpret a “symbol” as “racist” then you are the racist, interpreting the symbol as racist – because the symbol is nothing unto itself, which is to say, without interpretation.

    JEB; you are a racist moron, a hater of all things American, a liar, and a moron … oh, did i mention that you are a moron?

    Perhaps you meant “the cymbals were racist …?”

  13. To Jebby everybody but him, his herd, and their best friends forever, the Clintons are either racist, homophobic, uncouth, misogynists, hicks, low brows, statists or rednecks. He is probably getting tired of offering his esteemed services to such an ungrateful and undeserving mob of lesser mortals.

  14. And he gave free advertising to MSNBC with his “lean forward” comment. Another glimpse into his soul.

  15. He, like Trump is only a vanity candidate with zero chance

    2nd thing, why the hell do I have to go through a MacKeeper Ad every time I want to comment here?

  16. If we don’t get it guess who it goes to, the way the goverment is now I think we should get what we can, especially our older elders and our babies and children, take some away from them , they stole our heritage, now take something back unless you want al sharpton and the naacp to get it all. us or them ?

  17. My Views as an American and a Conservative.
    America, 1996. a plague several generations in gestation, and we, as a nation, are now slouching, not towards Bethlehem,
    but towards Gomorrah, the biblical city burned to the ground for the sinfulness of its people.
    Our culture is in decline, Our nation is in such serious moral trouble that its very foundation is crumbling.
    “Thirty years ago, Clinton’s behavior would have been absolutely disqualifying. Since the 1992 election, the public has learned far more about what is known, euphemistically, as the “character issue.” Yet none of this appears to affect Clinton’s popularity; then or today.
    It is difficult not to conclude that something about our moral perceptions and reactions has changed profoundly. If that change is permanent, the implication for our future is bleak.
    The root of our decline, is the rise of modern liberalism, which stresses the dual forces of radical egalitarianism (the equality of outcomes rather than opportunities) and radical individualism (the drastic reduction of limits to personal gratification).
    The roots of modern liberalism are deeply embedded in the past two and a half centuries–and perhaps–arise from the very nature of Western civilization itself.
    From the collapse of popular culture to the general weakening of intellect, from the role of the Supreme Court as an
    agent of modern liberalism to the trouble in religion, from the assault of radical feminism on American institutions and
    freedoms to the “killing for convenience” of abortion and euthanasia,
    To understand our current plight and the direction in which we are moving, we must look to the Sixties, a decade in which the moral integrity of our nation came under full-blown assault. We have never recovered from that attack because the radicals of the Sixties have taken over or heavily modified the cultural institutions they once sought to destroy.
    We can accept our fate and try to insulate ourselves and our loved ones from the devastating effects of a degenerating
    culture, or we can choose to halt the beast, to oppose modern liberalism in every arena. Understanding of our problem and the will to resist may be our only hope.

  18. Stupid is as stupid does he’s a IDIOT JUST ANOTHER bush Southern man don’t need him around anyway

  22. No, they just think the people (ie-the voters) are too stupid to realize what’s happening. And to some degree they are right. They managed to get the lowest common denominators to continue voting for them.

  23. Ronald Reagan supported Amnesty. Oh wait, this is a conservative site. I shouldn’t use facts. Let me try again… we sure do need REAGAN back to fight against all these libTARDS.
