Mississippi’s Republican-controlled legislature is taking a knee.
Pathetic. And the Mississippi State House of Representatives is comprised of 45 Democrats, 2 Independents AND 74 REPUBLICANS.

The Republican Governor, Tate Reeves, said he can’t wait to sign it:
The legislature has been deadlocked for days as it considers a new state flag. The argument over the 1894 flag has become as divisive as the flag itself and it’s time to end it.
If they send me a bill this weekend, I will sign it. pic.twitter.com/bf3vyzuObt

The Mississippi Senate voted 37-14 to remove the current state flag on Sunday.

Country music singer Faith Hill last week demanded the flag be changed because she said it’s “a direct symbol of terror for our black brothers and sisters.”

Neocon Ben Shapiro lamented the GOP isn’t getting the credit they deserve for taking a knee:
Weird that this article from NBC News neglects to name the party responsible for passage of this measure. GOP dominates the Mississippi House 74-45 and the Senate 36-16, and the governor is a Republican. Yet the GOP never appears in this article. Odd. https://t.co/i5RvM0sPcR

The GOP is worthless and dominated by controlled opposition.
