Illinois demorat governor cancels band from fair lineup over Confederate flag

From MyFoxChicago: Country rock band Confederate Railroad has been barred from performing at an Illinois state fair because of its use of the Confederate flag, setting off a firestorm by southern Illinois fans who believe they’re under Chicago liberals’ thumb of political correctness.

The band was scheduled to appear Aug. 27 at the DuQuoin State Fair, but Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration canceled the appearance last week.

“This administration’s guiding principle is that the state of Illinois will not use state resources to promote symbols of racism,” Pritzker spokeswoman Emily Bittner said. “Symbols of hate cannot and will not represent the values of the Land of Lincoln.”

The logo for the Grammy-nominated band, known for acoustic ballads such as “Jesus and Mama” as well as its raucous anthem, “Trashy Women,” features a steam engine from which waves dual Confederate Navy Jacks, whose stars and bars are the most widely recognized symbol of the Confederacy.

The banner has been attacked in recent years as a racist emblem of slavery and segregation. Supporters say it represents history and southern heritage.

The flare-up in DuQuoin, 87 miles southeast of St. Louis, rekindles a centuries-old rift in Illinois, whose southern tip reaches far into the confines of the old Confederacy and is home to a more traditional and conservative culture than that represented by Chicago Democrat Pritzker. Routinely, the region spawns legislation to make Chicago a separate state.

Joe McKinney, who has contacted Confederate Railroad about performing at his family’s banquet facility in DeSoto because of the group’s popularity, said the band has never used the flag to fan racial strife. “It’s just their logo. It’s just their southern pride,” McKinney said. But McKinney’s attempt to land the band goes beyond symbolism.

“In the southern part of this state, we suffer from a lot of decisions made from Chicago …,” McKinney said. “In addition to trying to bring the people what they want, we’re also trying to prove a point to northern Illinois: You don’t own everything.”

Confederate Railroad frontman Danny Shirley said in a statement Tuesday that the news “was very disappointing as we have played this fair before and enjoyed it.” He thanked supportive fans but dissuaded them from asking Restless Heart and Shenandoah, who are still scheduled for Aug. 27, to be no-shows.

Shenandoah released a statement saying it would appear, but added, “This ‘political correctness’ has to stop. It’s tearing our country apart.”

Rep. Terri Bryant, a Republican from Murphysboro, said a Facebook campaign to boycott the fair is ill-advised. A private festival for 70 years before the state purchased it in 1985, the DuQuoin fair is struggling to recover. So is the larger state fair in Springfield earlier in August, from a two-year budget stalemate and a boycott would hinder nonprofits who have substantial fundraisers there, Bryant said.

Bryant met with top Pritzker aides Monday in Chicago about the issue. Among other things, she pointed out that Snoop Dogg, who’s appearing at the state fair in Springfield, is promoting his latest album, “Make America Crip Again,” whose cover features the rapper standing over a corpse toe-tagged with Republican President Donald Trump’s name.

Bryant said she doesn’t support the Confederate flag, but is trying to limit government censorship.
“If you’re going to censor Confederate Railroad because it’s offensive to people, then censor the other entertainer with the depiction of a dead president that many people here love.”

To "support" women, Hillary reads from a book at the Grammy Awards…and it wasn't Juanita's book

broaddrick tweet
The Grammy Awards last night was, as expected, a full-on display of Trump Derangement Syndrome. See Twitchy’s report here.
Hillary even made an appearance to read an excerpt from the fictional work of Michael Wolff (via HuffPo):
“In a sketch during the award show, host James Corden gathered music greats Cher, John Legend, DJ Khaled, Cardi B and Snoop Dogg to audition to narrate Michael Wolff’s best-selling account of President Donald Trump’s White House, Fire & Fury: Inside the Trump White House, in an effort to get nominated for the Best Spoken Word Album category. But there was one not-so-musically inclined reader in the mix too: Hillary Clinton”
See the video at the HuffPo link above as I’m not inclined to put it on this post.
At the award show, many of the attendees wore white roses as a “gesture” of the Time’s Up campaign to support women. From ABC News:
“When music’s biggest stars walked the red carpet Sunday night as they headed into the Grammy Awards, many were spotted either wearing a white rose or holding a single white rose in their hands.
The gesture is in honor of Time’s Up, which aims to spark conversation around “equality and safety in the workplace,” music executive Karen Rait said ahead of the ceremony.
Kelly Clarkson, who held her white rose, said on “E! Live from the Red Carpet” that after looking into what the white rose represented she decided to join the movement. “It represents hope and peace and sympathy and resistance,” she said. “Those are lovely things for every human to encompass.”
Funny how their support of equality didn’t translate into reality as only one woman won a main award at the show last night.
So I wonder why the host of this year’s Grammy Awards show, or any others in the past years, didn’t have any celebrities read from Juanita Broaddrick’s book “You’d Better Put Some Ice On That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton?”
Doesn’t every survivor of sexual assault deserve to be heard, believed, and supported?
And why did the proggies celebrate Hillary reading this when it was reported, just days before, that she fired a male aide accused of sexually harassing a female? I think we all know the answer to that question.
Hillary Clinton and her Hollyweird sycophants can stuff their moral virtue signaling where the sun doesn’t shine. Their sympathy and concern for the safety of women only revolves around their own ideological views, not the REAL victims of sexual assault.
Hypocrites.

Rapper Snoop Dogg assassinates President Trump in music video

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 19:51:08 +0000

eowyn2

In the video for his latest “song,” Lavender, rapper Snoop Dogg (networth: $110 million) mock executes a clown-like President Trump with a toy gun.

Then, on top of threatening the life of a sitting President — and inciting others to do the same — Snoop Dogg layers on the contorted faux justification. He told Billboard that his “song” gives a voice to “people who don’t have a voice”:

“The ban that this motherfucker [Trump] tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherfuckers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherfuckers that’s not black on the streets making money off of it — but if you got color or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of color position themselves to get millions and billions off of it. It’s a lot of clown shit going on . . . . When I be putting shit out, I don’t ever expect or look for a reaction. I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing . . . I’m trying to fill in a void. I feel like . . . nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this fucking clown as president, and the shit that we dealing with out here . . . . “
