Sen. Rose Weighs in on Confederate Railroad Concert Controversy

Rock band Confederate Railroad had quite an eventful week earlier this month after having their DuQuoin State Fair concert canceled by Governor JB Pritzker and then finding a gig through a local Harley Davidson dealer.


State Senator Chapin Rose weighed in on the issue and says this could ruin the DuQuoin State Fair through the distraction it is going to cause.



Senator Rose does not like the direction things are heading when the government is getting involved in speech and religious debates.



Pritzker called the band's logo, which features the stars and bars of the Confederate flag, symbols of racism, white nationalists, and the alt-right.
