The lefties are trying to change history!

In recent years, the Confederate flag was taken down often now it seems they want to erase the name itself!

Country music group Confederate Railroad is one of the bands that suffered humiliation.

The popular, longtime band was set to play the Du Quoin State Fair in Illinois on August 28 — but they were removed from the line-up because of the name of their band, WSIL-TV reported.

Now they are removed from another state fair line-up.

The band was scheduled to grace the stage at the Ulster County Fair in New Paltz, N.Y., on Aug. 1, however, a spokesperson for the fair said the band’s performance in the Hudson Valley has been canceled.

“The Ulster County Fair must be an event that everyone can enjoy while representing the values of all members of our community,” rep for Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan said in a statement to the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday. “Any showcasing of a symbol of division and racism runs counter to that principle and will be vigorously opposed by my administration.”

Confederate Railroad frontman Danny Shirley responded to Ryan’s decision in a phone conversation with the SF Chronicle on Thursday, doubling down on the band’s choice to stand by their logo.

“I love the part of the country I’m from, and I will never apologize for that.”— Danny Shirley, Confederate Railroad front-man

Shirley added a bit about the history behind their name, explaining that it was inspired by a steam locomotive called the General — which was commandeered in Georgia during the Civil War by the Union during a raid.

The steam engine is currently on display in Kennesaw, Georgia, where Shirley lived when he landed his record deal, according to the SF Chronicle.
