Flagging You Down
We identify ourselves by that which hangs on a pole.
Flags. Not strippers.
These simple things that flap ferociously in the atmospheric conditions that are presented by mother earth; we associate ourselves with its identity.
Once again, flags. Not strippers.
I have seen quite a few flags, the one I do not understand is the Confederate flag.
The Confederate flag represents the Confederacy. You know, those mid-19th century democratic folks who receded from the Union in order to protect their way of life. Well, when put like that, it does not sound half bad. It even sounds patriotic until you realize they are protecting the institution of slavery.
So it befuddles me so when I see someone waving a Confederate flag. Are people aware of the contention that flag contains? It is supporting the southern antebellum lifestyle.
No, no, no…Do not get overwrought when I question if you are a racist. You should firmly be aware of the adumbration the flag carries. You may be a supporter of the southern activities of today, and that is fine. You just need to find a flag that recognizes that and not that you are a racist hillbilly.
So because of the Confederate flag wavers, I have placed an order for a swastika flag.
You see how you jumped to the assumption that I was anti-Semitic? By Confederate flag logic, I am just a supporter of Germany. That would not fly with the swastika flag (pun intended) and it should not for the Confederate flag.
I would like to add to this topic that I would love to time travel to the 1860s.
You may not ask me why, but I will tell you anyway.
I would like to go back to 1862 and walk into a Confederate meeting. I would take the stand and announce to them that I was from the future. I would then state that their party, the Democrats, would elect the first “colored” president of the United States. Congratulations.
I am assuming I would have to then pull a John Wilkes Booth and hightail it out of there. Hopefully without breaking my leg, or being shot by a castrated man.
