DAILYKENN.com -- Cultural purging is moving forward (or backward) in Mississippi where the "House of Representatives and Senate voted Saturday to move forward with a bill that would remove the Confederate emblem from the state's flag," according to businessinsider.com.

It appears the lawmakers are caving in to economic pressures as corporations avoid doing business in the state because the icon of Southern heritage has been deemed "racist" by the far-left extremists.

Until recent years, the Confederate battle flag has been viewed as a benign cultural symbol. The ability of the media to rebrand the flag as something it is not is a classic example of the 'War-of-the-Worlds' syndrome.

From businessinsider.com Mississippi's House of Representatives and Senate voted Saturday to move forward with a bill that would remove the Confederate emblem from the state's flag — and the governor indicated he supports the effort. A nationwide reckoning over racism in recent weeks has sparked a flurry of efforts to remove Confederate iconography across the country, from statues of generals to versions of the battle flag. Mississippi's flag, which includes the Confederate symbol in its top left-hand corner, has been a prominent target for anti-racism activists. Mississippi's House voted 85-34 on Saturday afternoon to suspend the chamber's rules and allow lawmakers to consider a bill on a potential new state flag, according to Reuters. Several hours later, the Senate voted 36-14 in favor of allowing lawmakers to change the flag, The Clarion-Ledger reported. Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves vowed in a statement on Saturday to sign a bill creating a new state flag if lawmakers agree on one.
