One Confederate flag, one idiot...
And off the smug progressives go, with the smears against all.
Occupy Wall Street protesters below, with the Communist flag....please proceed to smear all the protesters...
There's no such thing as a communist flag. That's a flag of the former USSR, which no longer exists.
There IS, however, such a thing as Confederate (Battle) Flag that, when used in the context of nullification, secession or racial animus, is meant to provoke a visceral reaction.
But thanks for comparing the tee partee to communists. That's very helpful.
The confederacy doesn't exist either. Are you feeling ok today?
That's true to a point.
But a whole lot of people in this country have an emotional attachment to the precepts of the CSA - again both good and bad.
And when the flag is brandished with talk of revolution and secession, that symbolism is alive and well.
