MW Chimes in On The Confederate Flag Controversy

polc14

I can understand why the Confederate flag riles some people. And rightly so. But, that said, I personally feel that this has become a media and political politically correct football.

A flag! Really! A flag that’s been around for years is making everyone ballistic! Really!

Now being a Northerner all of my life, I can’t really say that the flag ever registered with me as being a symbol of racism. I would assume that most Northerners, when seeing the Confederate flag thought of the war between the North and the South.

The North had their flag and the South theirs.

But……ITS A FLAG!!!!!!!!polc17

So, now after that horrible shooting in South Carolina the flag has become a politically correct issue.

Now don’t get me wrong here. I understand the feelings of African-Americans when it comes to that flag. Just as I understand the feelings of the young men who fought for that flag. So, it’s a double-edged sword as far as I see it.

So which stand is correct? Ban the flag because it is associated with slavery? Or keep the flag because it is part of America’s history?

Again, I think this has more to do with politicians seizing an opportunity to further their cause more than it has to do with the flag itself. The media on the other hand jumped on the anti-flag bandwagon as well, for the ratings of course.

But is this flag the real reason that kid walked into a church and took innocent lives? Suppose he had been photographed holding one of those violent video games. Would there be a call to ban those?

Worse….suppose he was holding a banana…OMG!!! Ban bananas!!!!! We all know what one thinks of when it comes to bananas…….pol15

Suppose, for the sake of argument, he was holding a British flag. Would we be banning British flags in WalMart because perhaps he sympathized with the British who killed how many colonists?

Suppose he was holding a photo of the president. Would we all be blaming Obama for this monster?

Kind of off beat comparisons, but, you get my point.

I think this has more to do with political correctiveness than anything else.

Here’s some examples in the name of being politically correct.polc1

We should all be required to have compassion for our favorite cartoon characters by their afflictions rather than being insensitive and laughing at them.polc2

And if you’re gonna have a race, for Gawd’s sake include EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!polc4

Might as well purge our libraries lest we offend anyone.polc6

And would you feel less offended if you were going to be eaten by a “homovore?”polc8

Hey, while we’re at it, you know all the movies, TV shows, photographs and other stuff with people smoking…OMFG!!!pol7

And it’s about time someone FINALLY corrected THIS……………polc9Oh yeah……the CORRECT way a Thanksgiving play should be presented.

polc11

Of course there ARE some safe non verbal ways of expressing yourself……polc12

And these words of wisdom……………polc3

And MY thinking……………………..polc5

So, by now I think you’ve grasped my logic. Unless, you’re one of those politically correct people who think that the entire world should think as you do.

Here’s a clue for ya…………………………WE DON’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We, believe it or not, have what you most likely do not. A BRAIN! Which allows us to sort out the bullshit from the logic.

If you had your way, THIS is what all those cartoons I posted would look like….

polc13

And when America finally gets to this point…………………..polc10

We’ll all be back to the Planet of the Apes.

Oops……was I politically incorrect with the apes reference?

Ah…….f**k it………………DILLIGARA!

Which means………….rats ass

    I believe America has become too thin skinned. Our politicians pick up on needless subjects to run with. The Confederate flag doesn’t hurt anyone. If you don’t like what it once represented, don’t buy one. On the other hand if you have one don’t flaunt it in “your face”. The Confederate flag today represents “rebels”. It is memorabilia, it’s part of history. We can’t erase it from the pages of history, even when we rewrite the history books. I haven’t owned a slave, I don’t hate blacks, yellows or any other color person. I believe every one is equal. I have black friends and even gay friends, both male and female. When I talk to them I don’t see their differences, they are people. Why can’t we get over it? The media and the politicians don’t help they just make it bigger.

      Very well put Tom. If we banned everything that offends someone it WILL be like that last cartoon I posted from the Planet of the Apes. You’re correct……the media, politicians and wannabes seized this as an opportunity. The question is……what’s next?

    I’m not sure that shooting has single-handedly caused the re-evaluation of the flag so much as pushed an issue that’s been at the tipping point for a long time.

    I’m not offended by it (although most of the people who fly it are odious), but it’s not about whether it offends me.

    Asfar as I’m concerned… We didn’t blame the Beatles when Charles Manson claimed that “Helter Skelter” inspired his murders.

      Good point Katy. We have become a society of politically correct idiots. As i stated, good thing that kid wasn’t holding something else in that photo of him with the Confederate flag. Geez, suppose he was holding an American flag, or a British flag. Food for thought.

    Reblogged this on MisfitWisdom and commented:

    Thought I’d repost this blog from June 24th in light of South Carolina’s vote to take down the Confederate Flag today. I agree that it should be taken down from the state house grounds, but I have other issues with regard to the blame the flag gets for one demented individuals actions. If the flag was to blame, where are the “politically correct” people when it comes to the GUN?
