Here’s a screenshot of the Facebook page of Wayne Boals of Helena-West Helena, with a bigger picture of his identifying image below. Boals is chairman of the Phillips County Election Commission. His Facebook page  says, “I’m a conservative Republican from the Confederate south.”

Phillips County. It is 59 percent black. It is part of the United States of America, not the Confederacy, I’m reasonably sure.

Some snowflakes in the Helena area have taken offense at Confederate imagery on the page of the man who oversees elections in the county. I’ve asked Boals about that. He drew the image from the pages of Secure America Now, a conservative political group that’s not fond of immigration, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and similar.
