Correct. This thread is about the American version of brownshirts censoring anything that they might find "offensive"...

and that may well be appropriate to the thread. So you think this woman was a brown shirt?

Could be but merely doing the flag bit? Bit of a stretch.

Which brings us to the real reason the "offensive" nature of the flag has been skewed and allowed to be misunderstood for all these years.

St. Andrew's Cross ...

"So perhaps there is nothing sinister going on in the mantra that the Confederate flag is an “X,” but given that the mere reference to “an X” is an incomplete history of flags featuring the St. Andrew’s Cross, and given the larger cultural climate of hatred of all things Christian, I smell a rat.
<snip>
The Left certainly hates the Confederate flag because it is “the flag of a stateless nation” that, despite its military surrender, has never surrendered its spirit."

However, even the little dude states it wrong, when he calls that flag, the Confederate flag. It flew on a battle field here, same as in Scotland ...

I've always seen the larger picture where the government(s) will manipulate the people. However, people do tend to make that too easy for them to do.

The woman is the victim of the brown-shirts as she is being censored in her right to free speech. In her own home, no less.

When people can publicly burn the U.S. flag and walk no charges filed, what then gives the government the right to tell her she can not display that flag in her home?

I've explained why many times in this thread.

There is no "explanation" or justification for denying people natural human rights. This woman, and any kind of flag, is not an initiation of force upon anyone. If people are "offended", they need to either grow up, or die. The world and the rest of humanity do not exist to please their tender sensibilities...

These 5 states still use Confederate symbols in their flags | MSNBC
In 1956, Georgia adopted a flag that prominently incorporated the battle emblem. It came down in 2001 in favor of a compromise flag that made the Confederate imagery much smaller.

The current flag was adopted in 2003. It is the first national flag of the Confederacy, known as the Stars and Bars, with the state’s symbolic arch added inside a circle of stars. Georgia voters endorsed it by a 3-to-1 margin in a 2004 referendum.



Although it is not funny what is happening to that officer, and just goes to show, give 'em an inch, they'll take it all the way ...

She is a cop. If she is not a cop she can display that flag as much as she wants.

She is a brown shirt in her home. Which is the standard brown shirt custom. No one came to her home and forced her.

But if she wants to be a cop she has to demonstrate she does not have racist tendencies. A reasonable observers would think the flag says she has racist tendencies.
