The Confederate Battle flag has only recently become an issue because Democrats see it as a way to gain some political advantage over Republicans. It’s because Nikki Haley the governor of South Carolina is a Republican. Somehow the flag is her problem and the GOP’s problem.
The Democrats ruled the south for more than a century after the Civil War, and Democrats did not object to the Confederate Battle flag and monuments. Georgia’s flag was changed in 2003 during the term of a Republican governor.
