Cowards! On the “Southern Heritage” defenders who attack liberals, but won’t go near a Neo-Nazi rally

Posted By on Sun, Aug 2, 2015 at 11:19 AM

Bree Newsome, the activist who pulled the Confederate flag down in South Carolina, has more courage and personal integrity than the hordes of angry, incoherent folk who have been railing against Liberals and “political correctness” ever since the church shooting which took nine innocent lives.

For over a month we have been inundated with letters to the editor, Facebook and Twitter postings, and rants on talk radio and television against the “PC” crowd who are attacking a symbol of southern “pride and heritage.”

And yet, where are these flag-waving patriots when Neo-Nazis, the KKK or others of that stripe proudly wave the Confederate flag at their rallies? Where is the Southern heritage loving version of Bree Newsome, brave enough to dash into their ranks and pull their beloved flag away from those who would trash Southern heritage in this way?

Even though there is much evidence to the contrary, many conservatives like to claim that American Muslims don’t condemn terrorism. Well, as opposed to Muslims who actually have been protesting terrorism, we are all waiting on the lovers of the Confederate flag to hold rallies condemning the KKK and their ilk.

In fact, whenever these hate groups do congregate in public, Confederate flags waving high, it will invariably be liberals who can be found on the same street, protesting, and countering their beliefs.

The “Southern heritage” folks are just way too busy at home, putting up angry posts on Facebook about how liberals are coming after them.

Oh, the humanity . . .

    Personally, I think things started going to Hell when folks were seriously asked, “Which candidate would you rather have a beer with?” Because, to be honest, there just aren’t all that many of my former drinking codkpaniopns I’d like to see in any positions of authority.

  • Patriotism as performance art

    Generally my feeling about standing for the National Anthem is the same as reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or taking part in school prayer (yes, I’m that old) - if you aren’t enthusiastic about what you are doing, well, it just becomes something you do to please others.
