It should be no surprise in the present political climate that many are calling for the banning of the Confederate Flag and all Confederate monuments. Why? Well, but of course, these all symbolize racism. NASCAR driver Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. is even calling for NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag from all NASCAR events and promotions. The U.S. Navy is seeking a ban as well.
So, let’s think about this. If the Confederate flag represents racism, and the Northern states defeated the Confederacy in the civil war, why are people burning Old Glory? Answer: eliminating the Confederate flag from memory results in the question no longer being begged; eliminating the Confederate flag is an important first step in eliminating the Union flag and what it symbolizes. They are seeking to eliminate the historical antithesis that defines what America is all about: freedom and justice for ALL.
The real beef is with the concept of self-rule despised by Socialism. The people decide what liberty and justice for all means, not the government. Americans, especially young ones always looking for something new (not that Socialism is new) are easily deceived by such notions. Why? They think Socialism will just tweak some negative things existing in our representative republic. Per human history over and over and over again, the useful idiots that partake in the transformation are shocked by the results. The transformation of America would not result in a better America, but the elimination of the American idea altogether. Trust me, liberty and justice for all according to America is much different than liberty and justice for all according to Socialism.
In the quest to eliminate American self-rule, it is critical that American history is eliminated. The Confederate flag is an important reminder that America fought a brutal war to end slavery. The Obamas, as a family, have been very vocal regarding their disdain for the Confederate flag. Malia Obama ripped the Confederate flag from a protestor’s hands in Chicago. Full stop: on the other hand, at a ceremony where the American (Union) flag was a central focus, Michelle Obama was caught whispering to Barak, “All this for a damn flag.”
Question: if liberals successfully transform this country, do you really think there will be no flag? At least the old liberals of the 60s were honest and waved communist flags; we are now pining away in wishing for their return.
Here is the thing about chaos that has been foisted upon the American public recently: it skews the obvious. Um, remember the freedom of speech thing? Now we have the epitome of middle American patriotism like Bubba Wallace calling for the elimination of the Confederate flag? Really, Malia Obama ripping the Confederate flag from the hands of a protestor should say all that needs to be said. With leftists, any speech they disagree with is the proverbial yelling of “fire!” in a movie theater. It is the dangerous act of thinking mankind can be free without destroying the world.
With all of this said, I believe, like many, that the Confederate flag has come to represent American audacity and boldness rather than slavery. Secession from the Union was a bold move border-lining on the berserk. Keep in mind, with many Southerners, slavery wasn’t the issue per se, but the idea that the government was trying to tell them how they could live their lives. Be sure of this: that is closer to why the Confederate flag is prevalent in venues like NASCAR. It’s the idea of courage and the freedom to drive 185 MPH while 3 feet away from another car if I damn-well want to. Bubba needs to sit back and drink a few cold ones while thinking about these things.
I highly recommend a Confederate flag movement. If it survives, it’s a line of defense against what the leftists are really seeking to destroy; Old Glory, and everything it represents.
But meanwhile, we could use some good old fashioned American defiance that the Confederate flag represents rather than the submission to leftist ideas being sought.
