Today S.C. Governor Nikki Haley signed a bill to remove the Confederate battle flag off of State Capitol grounds. It was a historic move after both the State Senate and House voted to remove it following the tragic mass murder of nine black churchgoers at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C. including S.C. Senator Clementa Pinckney.

But the decision to remove the flag was a controversial one. Truth In Media reported on those who were for and against the removal of the Confederate Battle flag.

Gov. Haley has been praised for her decision to remove the Confederate Flag, but many supporters of the Confederate flag, who view it as a symbol of heritage and not a symbol of hate, scolded Gov. Haley on her Facebook page.

County Councilman Stewart Jones (R-Laurens County District 4) commented, “Gov. Haley, My ancestors fought and died for their homes. They fought and died for South Carolina and this is how they’re repaid? They’ve been dead for 150 years. No compromise? The confederate battle flag didn’t kill anyone. It’s a scape goat and they’re coming for the foundations of America and you’ve just helped Obama.”

S.C. State Senator Lee Bright (R-District 12) was one of the Republican leaders in the Senate who opposed the removal of the Confederate Flag. The Bright campaign produced the video below in support of the Confederate Flag.

Despite Gov. Haley being a supporter of the Confederate Flag during the campaign trail last year, the tragedy of the Holy City Massacre and political pressure will bring the Confederate Flag down this Friday.
