Thousands In South Carolina Receive Menacing Confederate Flag Robocall Over Independence Day Weekend

The call compared the flag's removal to ISIS.

South Carolina residents began receiving robocalls on Friday comparing the movement to remove the Confederate flag from statehouse grounds to ISIS.

The state’s General Assembly is set to begin debates Monday on removing the flag, which has flown over the statehouse since 1961. Talk of removing it grew heated after a white supremacist gunned down nine African-American churchgoers on June 17, including State Senator Clementa Pinckney.

The message, featuring an eery-sounding and likely digitally-generated voice, was paid for by a group called the Conservative Response Team (CRT). According to their Facebook page, the group dropped 40,000 robocalls. They will continue to do so throughout the July 4th weekend and next week.

Why was it menacing??? Because the liberal media said it was!

This is the first time the Liberal media has ever called Robocalls menacing. What about the thousands of robocalls from democrat candidates running for office? I get them all the time and the media has never called them menacing. That darn media is working overtime to kill the Confederacy and everything about it.
