The Indiana Daily Student, the student newspaper for Indiana University Bloomington, recently ran a staff editorial about how the Republican Lt. Governor of South Carolina is a proud supporter of the Confederate flag.
"Republican Lt. Gov. Glenn McConnell has championed the use of Confederate flags, particularly the well-known battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.
McConnell and others have defended the flag variously as a connection to their ancestors and a valuable symbol of a struggle for autonomy. They claim the flag doesn’t represent hate, but heritage.
The Editorial Board thinks otherwise. They are wrong. And their ideas belong nowhere near institutions of education."
Here in Indiana, we don't support anyone, especially a Lt. Governor, who wears/flies the Confederate flag. That's just Hoosier Common Sense.
