In a startling announcement that was sure to anger many in Nashville and around the country, the executive committee for The T-Bagger convention in Nashville have requested the City Council in that city to establish "Whites Only" sections of the city and place signs accordingly.
"We are requesting that signs be placed at water fountains, movie theatres, lunch counters, and the front seats of busses," said T J McCorkle of Louisburg, NC and Chairman of the committee. "We would prefer that the city send all of the Negroes to Memphis for those few days, if not, at least confine them to their own part of town. We are, in part, doing this out of respect for our sister Sarah who is speaking to us and only us. We are NOT racists. We are God fearing American patriots expressing our first amendment rights."
A reporter asked Mr. McCorkle if these actions wouldn't offend fair minded people in Nashville and around the country. McCorkle replied, "We will also be expressing our second amendments rights and will be armed to the teeth. Got the picture"?? McCorkle was joined at the podium by other members of the committee and closed the press conference with the singing of "This Land Is Your Land."
In other news, it is reported that the Nashville department stores were postponing their January "White Sheet Sales" to February.
