Seems to me, and what do I know, that the above is a much bigger insult to Americans than the errant flag flying hither and thither.

The fact that two worthless groups of miscreants can amass such wealth and exert so much control over our social fabric is way more disturbing than an isolated flag viewed by a few hundred people with no negative impact on anyone.

But that's just me.

Neither of those things are really worrying.

Sometime flags really are dangerous if they mean things like "our group only, you're not allowed" or "we hate you and will kill you if you enter our territory", but, that isn't what's going on here.
Well then, I have a feeling this particular flag waving/flying was due to neither one of them, should n-e-1 be worried?

You give them too much credit. Their dad is mostly responsible for their wealth. If it wasn't for him they'd be in some trailer park somewhere

I don't think quixotic was giving them any credit but rather pointing the finger right back at ourselves and how petty/empty our culture has become.

Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I'll lay your soul to waste"

"Our country". I'm sorry, are you indigenous? If so what tribe? Yeah those people (Europeans) who come to your country at their own free will and reap the benefits of free African labour. Man, that's rough.

My take: I'd rather see an Armenian flag flying than a Confederate flag.

That was the exact same gripe of a century ago when waves of European immigrants were washing into the US.

That has normally been the case for every first-generation of immigrants to the US, and just as normally, the third generation is always assimilated.
