You’re hurting America

Just a quick review:

1. The Gay Pride flag is a symbol of love and acceptance. It’s a rallying symbol for an oppressed minority that’s been abused and marginalized throughout history.

2. The Confederate Flag is a symbol from an antiquated rebellion that didn’t want to give up their slaves; a failed regime that’s been relegated to the dustbin of history. The argument some still use is that the Confederacy was merely going to war for “states’ rights” but the reality is they meant “the states’ rights to own black people.”

So naturally the readers at Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller think the Confederate flag is fucking awesome. Of course they do.

Rebel Yell

Gibson County High School senior Texanna Edwards was — like many of her classmates — looking forward to her prom this past Saturday.

But Edwards didn’t get to attend because of her attire — a knee-length red dress decorated with bright blue stripes and white stars inside the stripes. The school’s colors are red, white and blue, but the dress resembles the controversial Confederate battle flag.

…Edwards said she told several people about her idea and many liked it.

Don’t fret none, everybody. Her racist friends didn’t have a problem with it, either. What a relief.
