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.
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?
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.
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….
We’ll all be back to the Planet of the Apes.
Oops……was I politically incorrect with the apes reference?
