Days of Change

The Confederacy is Dead | June 23, 2015

After the shooting in South Carolina, progressives yet again tried to have a conversation on guns where you give up your guns and shut up while they lecture you. That failed almost immediately. The conversation on race started off slows as well, since the last year has been all about racist cops and not racist loners. Luckily, some special snowflakes were negatively triggered by the Confederate flag. This was difficult since pictures of the gunman with the stars and bars didn’t come out for days. Instead, the mere fact that South Carolina has the flag on state house grounds (it had already been moved from the state house itself) was enough to somehow inspire a race attack.

This turns out to be a good strategy for the left. Get out in front of banning a piece of cloth as a symbol. This catches conservatives off guard, who actually still believe in freedom and know it’s silly to think removing a flag ends racism. This way, when the groundswell occurs to have it banned, the Republicans look like wafflers for changing their minds. Better yet, it makes people defiant and more likely to say dumb things about Blacks being worse criminals or having lousy morals.

The resurgence of the Confederate flag a couple of generations ago was an act of defiance by Southern states targeted by Civil Rights legislation that continued until just a few years ago. While it had some place in American culture, (The Dukes of Hazzard comes to mind) the flag is something of an anachronism. Instead of just letting it fade away, however, the left just has to tear it down.

The best part of this story for me is that around 160 years ago, the Republican Party was founded on principles that included the abolition of slavery. Republicans took over much of the country’s government and slavery was outlawed by the Constitution. Progressives and Republicans had control of the government until the 1930’s. The Civil Rights movement was filled with Republicans who fought against Democrats and Dixiecrats. Democrats have a history of slavery and racism longer than the Confederate Flag. Maybe they should be banned.

  2. Maybe [Democrats] should be banned.

    No maybe about it.

    And since the advent of the racist-in-chief and his tyranny-of-the
    -minority adherents, I’ve been thinking that maybe the wrong side won the Civil War.
