True Colors: Jeb Bush Now Calling Southerners and the Confederate Flag ‘Racist’

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 racists.

Bush just made his comments today at a campaign stop in South Carolina.

Jeb Bush said Monday that the Confederate flag has become a “racist” symbol and applauded efforts to remove the flag outside the South Carolina State Capitol after a racially motivated church shooting.

In his first campaign stop in South Carolina since the deadly shooting that killed nine at AME Emanuel Church in Charleston, Bush recalled how he “decided to do something politically incorrect” and removed the flags outside the Florida state house when he was governor 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.

Jeb had previously told all conservatives that he doesn’t want their vote in the upcoming primary election. Now he has added the whole of the south to that ban list.

Just who does this liberal think is going to vote for him, anyway?
