The Daily Beast's Eleanor Clift: Confederate Hauntings of the Republican Party

Eleanor Clift's column at The Daily Beast is linked below.

Eleanor Clift: Michael Ashmore's Confederate Flag, and what it says about today's GOP

"On Sunday, conservatives in town for the Values Voter Summit stormed the closed World War II memorial, tearing down the barricades and carrying them to the White House, where a protester gleefully posed for the cameras holding a confederate flag. Larry Klayman, a fringe player during the anti-Clinton mania of the ‘90s, told the crowd they were being 'ruled by a president who bows down to Allah.' He urged President Obama 'to put the Quran down' and come out of the White House with his hands down, or up. Klayman wasn’t quite sure which one."
