SEC Commissioner Demands that University of Mississippi Take Down Confederate Flag

Published

on

According to a CBS Sports report, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said that the conference will reconsider hosting conference championship events in Mississippi if the state does not change its flag, which features a confederate insignia in its design.

“It is past time for change to be made to the flag of the State of Mississippi,” Sankey stated. “Our students deserve an opportunity to learn and compete in environments that are inclusive and welcome to all. In the event there is no change, there will be consideration of precluding Southeastern Conference championship events from being conducted in the State of Mississippi until the state flag is changed.”

This statement came about when Mississippi state lawmakers have re-ignited discussions about changing the state flag. Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves hasn’t backed this legislative push. Reeves said that all changes to the state flag should be brought about by statewide election. The last time state residents voted on the flag was in 2001, where they decided to keep the confederate emblem in place.

Mississippi State’s president Mark Keenum responded to Sankey’s statement right after it was published. Keenum has advocated for changing the flag, counting on the support of the student association and faculty senate since 2015. He recently wrote a letter to the governor, lieutenant governor and speaker of the Mississippi House to “reaffirm that support.”

“I have great respect for Commissioner Greg Sankey, and I understand why he has taken this position regarding Mississippi’s state flag,” Keenum commented. “Clearly the current national climate is such that this debate may produce unintended consequences for our student athletes here at Mississippi State University and the University of Mississippi. There may be similar unintended consequences for academic pursuits at all our state’s public universities and negative economic impacts on the state’s communities as well.”

Ole Miss put out a statement, highlighting that the school stopped flying the state flag at its campus in 2015. Further, the school expressed its support for the SEC’s decision.

CBS Sports explained the significance of the SEC championship:

The SEC football championship is held annually in Atlanta and the men’s basketball championship is committed to all but one year between now and 2030 in Nashville, Tennessee. In 2022, the SEC men’s basketball tournament is scheduled for Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. The women’s basketball tournament is without a host site for 2023-2025 after stops in Greenville, South Carolina and Nashville the next two years. The state of Mississippi has hosted portions of the baseball championships a combined seven times between Starkville (5) and Oxford (2) before the tournament took up residence in Hoover, Alabama in 1998.

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
