It is the most recognizable Confederate symbol now and many make the mistake of thinking it was the national flag. It has now been hijacked by quite a few racist groups. Even the Hitler humpers fly it now. It rankles me to see it flown alongside Nazi rags. They fly Old Glory that way to. It's disgusting and something I'm willing to get to fighting about.


Yea, these leftist moon bats will be going after every flag ever flown in the US before it's over. They will want Old Glory replaced and will want to make it a federal crime to fly anything but what they approve of. The rainbow rag is a likely candidate for what they will want to see as our national flag. They have already tried to make inroads towards that.
Yep.

Agreed. It's sad and unfortunate, but it's reality.

We'll agree to disagree on this bit.

The rainbow flag and the Mexican flag are apparently acceptable to our friends on the left.

First they came for the Confederate flag, then they came for the Betsy Ross flag, now they come for the Gadsden flag, next they will come for the standard American flag. They can only get away with it if we let them get away with it.

Not just accepted. PREFERRED. They are Globalists that want Open Borders and the destruction of American Sovereignty.

With this craziness going on in this country, I won't be surprised American flag would be next.

They will just claim that, "American flag has no place in government building, but you can still feel free to fly it in your own house."

With Trump will that not make sense? Does the American Flag represent the idea of "Go back where you came from"? Why are we so OK with Trump turning the flag into something it has never represented?

Trump hasn't turned the flag into anything

I'm surprised that we haven't seen groups like ANTIFA flying the old former Soviet hammer and sickle. It represents what they are all about. When Obama got elected there were some "students" waving that flag around at a demonstration at the White House. I find that scary that any American citizen finds inspiration in that flag.


I mean...really? A flag that symbolized the reigns of guys like Stalin and Lenin? To me that's no better than the Nazi flag. The brutal oppression and genocide that happened under that flag was just as bad, probably worse actually, than what happened in Nazi Germany. Stalin was an absolute butcher, rivaled only by Mao in the sheer number of people he exterminated.


And here are these leftist types proudly waving it and calling the Gadsden racist? These hypocritical contradictions just amaze me at times.

I make an argument, you reply with name calling. It makes me understand the attraction to Trump.
