Who invented the idea of a flag anyway?

The most divisive icon ever devised.

Nothing but death and tragedy have resulted ever since.

Lets rally round our flag, and trash theirs.


Ban flags!!

They're so mean, up there on poles, waving in the wind, minding their own business.

What's the worst thing a flag every did to you? I remember one time my brother was waving one around and it hit me in the face and almost knocked my sunglasses off. Can you believe that?

Unbelievable I say.

Im sure her parents are proud of her. Maybe she will get a participation trophy and prescription from accu-vision for at least trying. Talk about a problem, I feel sorry for her neighbors. Ignorance is f***ing bliss i guess. Blame it on the rain.

Flags are used to incite ideology, I mean Nationalism, I mean war...

Defending the nation isn't the same as defending the flag. The flag can be moved from location to location.

Once supplanted, ideology can be misused.

Now we are defending our national flag in other countries??!!




What about the rainbow flag? Don't tell me that's an exception.

Evidently she hasn't been following the Winter Olympics.


Evidently she hasn't been following # due to the political climates convenient and amazing ability to make rabid fanatics blind.

Natives just didn't get it. Nobody in their tribe goes without food or shelter, ever. Nobody has more than they can use. Everything is divvied up equally, like kills, weapons, shelter. Everyone contributes to make the whole tribe, everyone, as strong as possible.

Key word in your post is "tribe". They may have taken care of everyone within a tribe but they would raid and conquer other tribes. We still live in tribes today. We just call them something else. Oh, and we assign flags to them.

It could be that it was a windless day and that the flag was hanging downwards at 45 degrees or so. Then they would look a bit more similar but still without the stars.


This is absolutely absurd. I really have no idea what to say to someone trying to justify the ignorance and stupidity of this piece of trash attention-whore.

And?
She is no dumber than Americans who claim that Hitler was a left winger and that fascism is a left wing ideology. She is no dumber than Americans who think that universal health care is something Hitler invented.
Sarah Palin was a relevant politician in USA not so long ago for crying out loud!! This just shows how dumbed down some of you Americans are.

No worse than any other country my friend. I've run into a lot of Europeans with really stupid missconceptions about the world around them. We don't have a monopoly on idiots in the US. Actually, we're just catching up.


America being a melting pot, we have idiots from all over the world

There were hundreds of "Nations" within the confines of the Continent , coexisting peacefully before Europeans arrived.

Conflicts were settled by Powow, the mob calls them sit-downs, we found out and called them treaties, breaking every single one.

Any ' ism '. They are all dangerous as lynch mobs.

The only flag waving exception I can think of is signaling. Required for line of sight communication, but thats also military-ism.

I understand what you're saying, but there has and always will be symbols of ownership.

That other disease, ownership.

Used to confound Native Tribes about the white man.

He declared ownership of land. Planted flags, lol.



Not having flags didn't seem to stop them from attacking each other very much.

The firstEuropean settlers were saved from starving by the locals who came to their aid. Boy are they sorry. They should have exterminated them right off.

The absolute irony is this supposedly educated person just assumed a Scandinavian was a racist hillbilly. I guess she never actually talked to her neighbour's. Because me thinks 2 seconds of interaction would have dispelled all her white nationalist fears only to show her that the neighbours belong to one of the only groups of white people on the planet who get a pass from leftists...
Scandinavians.
By collective default programming this "author" should be groveling at these Vikings feet. But her desire to virtue signal overrides all reational thinking. This is what a modern education does to people...

The other thing about modern education is teaching people to have no humility. A simple "oops, my mistake, I'm sorry" would have been refreshing. But I don't think people have that in them these days.
