This post is not that lesson.
I know this is a topic many people are talking and writing about. Wow, wasn’t that quick…….. we stopped discussing the fact that a white complete moron, jackass, oh yes a thug, there I said it, walked into a mostly black church in Charleston, S.C. and killed nine of our fellow countrymen (to include women). Instead the focus has now moved to the Flag of the Confederacy. That flag didn’t pull the trigger on those people. The punk never walked into that church waving a Confederate flag. He certainly did not run out waving one either. Yes, there are photos out there of him holding a Confederate flag once, so to some the Confederate flag becomes a symbol of hate. There are jerks like this that will twist what something once stood for into something evil, normally by some jackass like this that never understood the purpose of the Confederate flag to begin with. It was the symbol that united the Confederate States together, just as the Stars and Stripes did for the North and our nation today.
There was a separation of the States, the South vs. the North brought on by political and social differences. I know it goes much deeper than that, but I am not getting into that here, besides I am not a history major, and how much has been inaccurately written. That is another story. How many states even today have talked of secession because they don’t like the way our government operates and where we are headed, from political and social differences.
The governor of South Carolina is calling for the Confederate flag to be taken down from the State buildings, offices etc. She said, “The Confederate flag was a part of the state’s history, the past, but it is not the future.” She is half right………history, history that should continue to be taught, and taught accurately, and that flag is a part of that history. It will take a session of the South Carolina Legislature to remove the flag.
Wal-Mart has announced it will take all Confederate merchandise from its shelves. Really? The almighty Wal-Mart? We’re going to make a political statement Wal-Mart? The patriotic Wal-Mart? The same Wal-Mart that sells mostly products from China and other nations. They have done as much to contribute to the destruction of American manufacturing as any company in the U.S.
How many men and women have died under the Stars and Stripes? How many wars, unpopular and highly protested where fought under those same Stars and Stripes and thousands were killed, both American and foreign? Are we going to take down the Stars and Stripes next? Will Jade Helm go door to door and remove your Confederate flag and the flag that still represents that of the United States of America? The problem isn’t a flag, it is attitude, social attitude that is destroying this country and the government and media continue to toss gas on the fire.
This continues to be the way our government deals with issues, by focusing on another agenda, not dealing with the real problem; such as improving racial division. Instead you have the race baiters further dividing us, the same ones we saw last summer in Ferguson, Obama, Sharpton……..you know the rest of the team. So, far South Carolina has kept Sharpton fairly quiet; or maybe I just haven’t caught his crap yet.
