WATCH: Senate Candidate Burns Confederate Flag

A U.S. Senate candidate in Louisiana has once again captured national attention over his provocative campaign ads.

Democratic candidate Gary Chambers, who went viral last month for smoking a blunt in a campaign ad, burned a Confederate flag in his latest video.

In the video titled “Scars and Bars,” Chambers wears a camouflage jacket and cites the famous line from the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

He pins a Confederate flag on a clothesline and ignites it with a lighter.

While he watches the flag burn, Chambers argues that “remnants of the Confederacy remain” in the South, mentioning gerrymandered districts and restrictive voting laws as its “byproducts.”

“The attacks against Black people, our right to vote and participate in this democracy, are methodical,” he says.

“Our system isn’t broken. It’s designed to do exactly what it’s doing, which is producing measurable inequity.”

“It’s time to burn what remains of the Confederacy down,” he says.

“I do believe the South will rise again, but this time it will be on our terms.”

Chambers, 36, looks to unseat Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) in the upcoming midterm election.

    What an A__

    I’m a 69 year old white man who was born and raised in the South. Seeing this made me smile. Racists and Neo-Nazis have forever ruined the image of the Confederate flag for me. It now belongs on the ash heap of history. My hat is off to this good man!

    I think he is on the right track. I would suggest burning a Dale Earnhart #3 flag to be sure.

  4. More and more stupidity

  5. Recce1 says:

    If he’s for “equity” I guess he wants everyone equally poor, except for the elite politicians. I also guess he’s in favor of the Democrat voting rights bill that’d guarantee permanent Democrat control of government and allow no-citizens, including illegals, to vote.

    And on whose terms does he want the South to rise again? Is it the BLM activists who’ve explicitly said for black supremacy?

    1. Talk about a paranoid post. All BLM is protesting is the clearly abuse of the brutality of how the “police” interact with African Americans. If you have a problem with that, you are part of the problem.

    Have to agree with China on one thing. They said blacks are backwards ans stupid. I knew this ages ago.

  7. Ed D. says:

    Just one more race baiting, piece of crap! Take your equality nonsense and sit on it. In this day and age you have more rights and privilege’s than most White people do.

    I say this, not as a Democrat or a Republican, as I am neither and have no use for any political party. I offer my opinion as an American.
    IMHO, the Confederate battle flag is a symbol of a traitorous group of people who are directly responsible for the deaths of over 600,000 American citizens (deaths on both sides) who have never received justice. Everyone of the men who prosecuted the Civil War, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Nathan Bedford Forrest, et al, violated their oath of allegiance to the United States of America by voluntarily electing to participate in an armed insurrection to overthrow the government of the United States of America. The reasons why are not important, their actions, however, are and all of the people mentioned above are nothing more than traitors to this country and should have been tried for treason, convicted and hung publicly for their treasonous actions. They should have never had monuments erected in their name glorifying their exploits which, IMO, were and still are reprehensible. Their names and all symbols and vestiges of their very existence should have been vilified and reviled in history, not glorified. Abraham Lincoln, for all his great achievements, got this one wrong and the SCOTUS acted as a tool to achieve the historical results. Which, BTW, only served to prolong reconstruction and breathed life into segregation and continued tyranny for over some 100 odd years.
    So, IMO, the burning of the Confederate flag and any other monuments glorifying the acts of a relatively few relatively few treasonous individuals is justified.

    My dad told me a long time ago, that we will need a modern Ab Lincoln to save us from the blacks! He may be right.

      WAY over half of the TV commercials are black, probably half of the shows are black. The media is constantly talking about stories that are the blacks being mistreated. The media spent about twenty seconds on the black guy that tried to kill the Jewish guy that is running for office. He was out on a very low bail considering the crime, paid by blm money. Can you imagine if that had been a white person and white supremacists had bail him out?.. First he probably would not have been let out on bail, second , the MSM would not stop talking about it for the next six months. While there is some racism from whites, there is also a lot of racism from blacks. I worked in public health for 35 years. I went into the black ares of town much of my life. I have been called names, I have had things thrown at me and my vehicle, e,tc. I don’t think it is right for noncitizens to vote, I definitely do not think it is right for people crossing the border illegally have the right to vote. I think a lot of people are trying their best to ruin this country. I have lived in four different countries and traveled to a great many more. The is no country like the United States of America. Period. People need to wake up and stop the fools that want to ruin it.

    Article 4: Section 4 of the US CONSTITUTION proves that the authentic USA is not now nor has it ever been a “democracy”. The founders held great animus for “democracies”. Democracies always descend into violence and mob rule given that the mob seeks power to redistribute wealth. This is driven by the twisted claims of equality. Everyone wants equal rights. Not everyone wants equal
    responsibilities. Rights must include responsibilities. Any right without a corresponding and commensurate responsibility is NOT A RIGHT. It is a wrong.

    Now if I would burn a BLM flag I would be arrested for a hate crime, so why isn’t this clown arrested for a hate crime?
