Democratic Lawmaker introduces bill to rename Southern States

Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, introduced H.R. 2020, the Erasing Confederate History Act of 2020, legislation that provides a comprehensive plan to rename the 11 states that made up the original Confederacy.

South Carolina was the first to secede, on December 20, 1860, followed by Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas. On February 8, 1861, representatives of those states announced the formation of the Confederate States of America, with its capital at Montgomery, Alabama. After the Civil War began in April, four slave states of the Upper South—Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina—also seceded and joined the Confederacy.

“It’s an insult to African-Americans who are descendants of slaves living in the formerly Rebel states to live under the same state name that enslaved their forefathers.”

Republicans in the House, the political party of the Great Emancipator Abraham Lincoln, said it should be up to these States to decide their own name as well as their state flag.

    1. I do agree. No matter how will be the result of the election , Democrats will never agree and in case they win, it will be just by elections fraud. That of course after some month will be proven. With no compromise I do not see any other way. God bless second amendment.

  1. What a COMPLETE, TOTAL waste of time, and money. Doesn’t this woman have anything constructive she can do? Look at the mess California is in, but she is worried about the names of Southern States. Guess what, those names and their State Flags are FINE. Go back to California and clean up your mess.

    1. Yeah, shock therapy! And turn the dial up to 11 (then hit the switch and go to lunch). Nothing “upstairs” left to worry about frying anyway.

  2. Ms. Waters…this is a huge over-reach on your part. You have a big enough mess you need to attend to in California…I would suggest you would best serve the people who elected you right at home. As far as the Southern States are concerned, you should MYOB !

  3. This container of scrambled mud doesn’t even know which state she lives in, what state she was born in, or what district she works for, she doesn’t know what time it is, what month, year or day it is, but she can sure as hell count the cash she has stolen from taxpayers !!!

  4. Apparently this bimbo has nothing better to do then piss people off. STFU Maxine – we don’t care who you say or do – you belong in the asylum you stupid witch !


  6. If there is anyone who is not happy living in this country then they should move to another country where they could be happier!

  7. The first thing the French revolutionaries did after breaking in the guillotine was to abolish the traditional regions of the country and replace them with anonymous and homogeneous departments without any specific cohesion or identity. The Soviets also replaced historic Russian districts with essentially random administrative units that could more easily be controlled, and the East Germans did the same thing with their Lander or states. This is nothing less than the first part of a plan to divide the country into “Hunger Games”-type districts. The list of things that we will have to rebel against if the Obammunists try them is just getting longer and longer. Mad Maxine must really think that she and Burn Loot Murder can win the civil war that this will bring on.

  8. For heaven’s sake!!! That’s the craziest idea Maxie has ever come up with in my opinion. She needs to retire, sit down, shut up, and stop trying to force another civil war. People like her continually try to agitate instead of trying to heal. If there are African-Americans who don’t like the state they’re living in, they are free to move! If you don’t like the former Confederate States, stay out of them. Simple as that!

  9. Shoulda figured her ugly mug would be behind such an idiotic move. She should pay more attention to the hell hole that is her home district. . . .

  10. First the old bat needs to rename the Democrat party since it started it all and then justify everything else after that.

  11. “insult to African-Americans who are descendants of slaves living in the formerly Rebel states to live under the same state name that enslaved their forefathers” — Amend the bill to make them move to the other 39 states.

  12. All these years and now everything is an “insult” to Black Americans,,interesting. The media has always been far left and all the “insult” was never addressed or done anything about . Looks like they are using the election of Donald J. Trump as their scapegoat to see if they can get more votes in November.

  13. Why don’t we rename California Mexico and give the state back to Mexico. That way we get rid of Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi. They won’t need sanctuary cities, Border patrol, ICE etc. The southern border will no longer policed. Everybody from south of the old California border can come and go as they please, get their free healthcare, free college education, food stamps and a guaranteed income. California law enforcement will be allowed to go to the United States and enforce laws there. Mexico/California will be policed by the Mexican Federalies and probably some Drug Cartel thugs.

  14. Hey, Waters, Kamala Harris’s ancestors were slave owners. Why are you supporting her?? In fact, so were Obama’s!!!

  15. While they’re at it they should rename the political party of slavery, the KKK, Jim Cow laws, decades of obstructing civil rights legislation, etc. You know: the Democrat party… the one “Mad Max” herself belongs to? (BTW – this is historical fact, NOT satire)

  16. Maxine, bless you soul, but honey don’t you have bigger problems back home to occupy your attention. Ignorance is contagious like the virus ,please seek some professional help. Thank for your suggestion but I’m believing ALL of us are happy with the name of our State, If a few are unhappy their are 39 other choices for then to settle. I would like to suggest changing Calif’s name to State of Gorp. Could you help with that or would you prefer “Trail Mix” as actually its content seem to really describe your State’ condition.

  17. Someone please send this to Maxine Waters. If you are so offended by the southern states names, then start with the name Democrat. It was the Democrat governors of the southern states that started the confederacy. It was Democrats that started the KKK. It was the Democrats that refused to pass the equal rights amendment. It wasn’t till there was a veto proof republican congress that Johnson was forced to sign it into law. Maxine, you should be offended to be a member of the party of slavery and the KKK. How can you possibly support a party that has it’s past in slavery. It was a Republican that freed the slaves from the Democrats. Or maybe you just like being a slave for the Democrats. I remember reading that some black people liked being slaves. You must be like them.

  18. There is just no living with these “people.” We need our own country with out them. Maybe the southern and fly-over states should succeed and form it’s own conservative republic without the coastal & NE states.

  19. This is a moronic endeavor. First of all, Waters has no accomplishments snd so this is her kooky way of looking necessary and important. Secondly, she has no regard for how tax dollars are spent. Not one dollar should be devoted to this insanity. Kamala Harris has slave owners in her family. So why is Waters fine with that?

  20. Where ever they are, I suspect Abe and the Union fallen are wondering if their sacrifices were worth it.
