For This Politician, A Confederate Flag Is The Perfect Christmas Card

This is the true #WaronChristmas. What better way to wish your fellow colleagues happy holidays and a merry Christmas than through a deep-rooted symbol of slavery?

Chris Corley confederate flag christmas card

Representative Chris Corley of South Carolina (are we surprised?) sent out this classy and profoundly respectful card, which includes a Confederate flag on the front, to all of his colleagues and friends. The inclusion is not a coincidence—according to The Post and Courier, Corley is retaliating against the attempts to ban the Confederate flag following the Charleston church attack.

Corley defended the card, stating, “I sent out a Christmas card. If you felt the card pointed out a hypocrisy that you had in terms of not listening to the people you represent and just voting the way you wanted to vote because you were caught up in the moment, then that’s more on your guilty conscious than it is newsworthy.”

“May your Christmas be filled with memories of a happier time when South Carolina’s leaders possessed morals, convictions and the principles to stand for what is right,” says the card on the back. “May you have a blessed Christmas, and may you take this joyous time as an opportunity to ask for forgiveness of all your sins such as betrayal.”

May Corley take this joyous time as an opportunity to ask for forgiveness of all his sins such as being a garbage human being.
