I agree but it's a flag on a state capitol that really shouldn't have been there anyways.
It's not a "start" it's more a "someone made a big deal of it"
The average person i talk with about it says the same, stupid. Why make such a big deal over no big deal. Just because fox and cnn polled a selective
audience, it doesn't reflect the mindset of the average American.
And again: people show their ignorance and instead embrace something simply because (as Martha Stewart says) "It's a good thing.", instead of thinking
critically, and knowing everything there is to know about.
Like the fact the flag was NOT flying OVER the state capital building.
Over and over and yet even when educated differently, I still see this statement over and over here on ATS. Truly Denying Ignorance is gone here. Only
Embracing Emotions counts.
Where the flag WAS flying:
The ironic thing (dramatic irony to be sure), was how many people on here screamed "it should not be flying on top of the state capital building! That
Only to see that when they were corrected on where it was flying, their statements changed to: "Well it should not be flying on government property!"
(except for some on here that just can't seem to understand that it's no longer flying on top of the building for some strange reason).
Then to see that when it's been show that there are many, many different monuments erected on state property, what are we now seeing?
Calls to remove not just a flag, but those monuments, grave sites, etc, etc.
Again: it's a insidious tool. But it works well. You can manipulate people very easily with it. You can rewrite history with it. You can erase history
And: you can control people with it, so that in the end you can ensure that those people will always do as you say.
It's just a flag right? No big deal...right? It's a symbol that we MUST get rid of.....right? It's okay, it can be in a museum......for now. We're not
interfering with anyone's rights...or insisting that everyone must believe the way we do! Honest! We're helping you!
Then down the road: Oh look! Something else happened........we'll have to get rid of something else. It will help! It will be a "good thing". You
agreed to it before! Nothing bad happened, did it? You really should trust us, because we have shown in the past that we certainly do know what is
good for you! That's it. That's the good little lamb. You won't miss this either. You'll see.........
And that, is how the lambs are led to their cages........
No. Just look back in history. Even in just the past 100 years, and show me how this has not been done before.
But you'd better look quickly......before it's rewritten, or removed.
