No pro-Confederate opinions allowed at White House

The official demonization of the South continues:
"In view of the president’s moving statement regarding Holocaust Remembrance Day, does he believe it is right for the Washington Post’s columnist, Robert McCartney, to compare the Confederate States of American to Nazi Germany?"
That was one of two questions prepared by Les Kinsolving, WND’s correspondent at the White House, to ask at today’s daily press briefing with Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
The second question was, "Is the president aware of Frederick Douglass’ statement of "many colored men in the Confederate Army … real soldiers, having musket on their shoulders and bullets in their pockets."?
But Kinsolving was allowed to ask neither question, as Gibbs declined to recognize him. That was while he was recognizing Urban Radio for five questions and NBC, the New York Times and Fox News for four each.
Looks like the Obama administration doesn’t want to upset its base with the facts.
