Thank God For the Confederate Flag
Wait, it's not what you think! I didn't suddenly mutate into a Born Again Klanbagger. But you won't believe the irony here.
The Koch Brothers' Harem (formerly known as Congress) voted yesterday on a funding bill that would have basically crippled the Environmental Protection Agency and large portions of the Endangered Species Act. And as it turned out, our air, water and wildlife were saved by the Confederate Flag.
House Republicans pulled the controversial spending bill at the last minute because too many lawmakers wanted to preserve the Confederate flag in National Parks and cemeteries.
Friends of the Earth’s Lukas Ross said:
“Apparently the only thing that matters more to House Republican leadership than sacrificing American’s air and water is defending the legacy of slavery. We can only hope that this bill stays dead and buried.”
