Illinois State Fair cancels concert by Confederate Railroad

It never ends does it. Not until enough people make a big enough stink over this crap

The culture jihadists are targeting our faith, our families and our heritage. They want to finish the fundamental transformation of our Republic that was started by President Obama.

The latest conflict involves the state of Illinois and Confederate Railroad, a popular country and southern rock band.

It seems that Confederate Railroad has been booted from an upcoming appearance at the DuQuoin State Fair Grandstand, according to television station WSIL.

The Pinckneyville Press reports that the band’s August 27th performance was canceled over “racial sensitivity concerns.”

In other words, somebody was triggered by the band’s name. And to be even more specific, they were triggered by the word “Confederate.”

“While every artist has a right to expression, we believe this decision is in the best interest of serving all of the people in our state,” State Fair manager Josh Gross told the newspaper.

More vomit inducing, CYA excuses for sheer gutlessness. Who wants to bet far more people are offended over this decision than letting the band play? The issue is fear, fear of the Leftist Outrage Machine. Frankly we need more business owners, CEO’s and others who will do the right thing. Take this story for example

“Guy wears MAGA hat at my favorite restaurant. I say ‘hey are you from dc?’ He says ‘no.’ I say ‘we don’t tolerate racism in this city,’” TJ Helmstetter wrote on Twitter. ” His girlfriend then physically jabs fingers into my chest and starts threatening me. Management tells me to leave, not woman who assaulted me.”

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Sweet mercy, America. Now, that’s funny.

It sounds like this intolerant jerk tried to pull a “Maxine Waters” and was shown the front door. Dude picked the wrong barbecue joint.

Go read it all. Basically, it would seem, a leftist agitator tried to bully someone and was A. stood up to, and B tossed for disturbing everyone else with his tantrum

  1. I hope that all of our wonderful country fans will refuse to go to the fair.They are a wonderful band.It is just a name.

  2. Our history is what it is. Like it or not. It is what started America and unfortunately allowing all this BS is what is going to end America. I am sorry if you are offended or have your feelings hurt – GROW UP!!! Life isn’t fair – if you don’t like it – – – LEAVE!! you have no problem taking all the benefits that America offers but GOD forbid we hurt your feelings. I am so over all this crap. When does America start to take care of their own???

  3. I’m not even a big country fan, I’m a blues kinda guy. I’m from Illinois, born and raised here. I am totally embarrassed by this . Leave all the statues up and any other item that honors their/our war heroes. This is total bullshit. This is America remember “ liberty and justice for all” not just the leftist nuts.

  4. Isn’t anyone allowed to disagree with all this crap? How are things better since the statues are gone? How has that made life better?? Obama set race relations back 100 years and now this country is being held hostage by his sheep.

  5. One of Confederate Railroads songs is “Proud to be a Rebel” ………….American made by my Ma and Pa, Southern born by the grace of God, proud to be a Rebel till they put me in the ground.
