The debate over taking the Confederate Flag down at the State capitol is a red hot issue in South Carolina. Truth In Media reached out to libertarian candidate Steve French for his thoughts and the political ramifications of the issue heading into the 2016 presidential election.

French told Truth In Media that he believes that the Confederate flag should come down but the act should be taken a step further. “I think the Down with Tillman movement needs to go hand-in-hand with this Confederate Flag movement,” French said.

According to the Charleston City Paper, Ben Tillman “was a racist, terrorist, and murderer.”

In 2009, Rep. Todd Rutherford (D-Richland) filed a bill to remove the Tillman statue of the controversial S.C. politician. The bill died in a Republican-controlled subcommittee.

“It’s not about bringing the Confederate Flag down, it’s about moving past this history that we’ve had in this Country and this State. And I say it’s time to move forward, it’s time to put these old things to bed. It’s not just about the flag, its about the whole system,” said French.

Last year in a gubernatorial debate, Gov. Nikki Haley defended the Confederate flag while French called for it to come down.

“Paint your house in the Confederate flag. I could care less. But as far as it being on State grounds for somebody my age, I see nothing that that does except divide us as a generation and a State. All it brings is divisiveness,” said French.
