A Confederate Flag was raised 50 feet over I-95 in Virgina. The flag raisers said the flag represents principle, the Constitution and heritage. Here is a video of the flag raising. Shame on the black girl supporting the Confederate flag in the video.
The other day Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz joined veterans and Tea Party members in a protest about the government shutdown. They stole the National Park Service’s protective barriers, and threw them at the White House gates. Front and center near the White House gates was a man holding a Confederate flag. When some black veterans objected to the flag they were pushed and shouted down. Members in the crowd suggested they were planted Kenyans “like President Obama.”
Let’s be honest and admit the Confederate flag is treasonous and represents the principle of racism. I’ve heard the Confederate Flag best described as the “American swastika.” If it doesn’t represent racism how would you explain these photos?
I wrote this poem about the Confederate flag a few years back.
A History Lesson
Jesse Helms and Strom Thurman
proved the good do indeed die young.
The Stars and Bars
fly over ole Dixie
to let the black man
know to keep his place.
The flag proves southern whites
haven’t learned from history…
only rewritten it.
There is indeed
a rightful place
for the Confederate flag,
in a fucking museum.
As you can see in this story we have Confederate flag waving Tea Party racists right here in Ohio.
Arthur Pope: “Lies of Our Fathers”
“Since when has leadership been a criterion for sanity? Or vice versa. Hitler was a gifted leader, even Nixon. Exhibit leadership qualities as an adolescent, they pack you off to law school for an anus transplant. If it takes, you go into government.”
