Betsy Ross flag flew at Obama's 2nd inauguration, now suddenly racist

This won't come as a shock to most of us. These things are rarely about actual racism or oppression. They're usually just about perpetually offended, out-of-touch progressives maintaining that coveted victim status. This is what happens when you turn victimhood into a currency. This crap jumped the shark a long time ago.

It's time for leftists to admit the whole stink about the Nike shoe by Kaepernick was baseless nonsense. Either that, or Obama is a racist. Pick one. Then get a life. PC progressives lost all credibility long ago.

What a #ing joke.

Flags were not offensive at that time....
You cant judge obama against the current social atmosphere. That would be unfair.

Much like its totally unfair to judge our founding fathers against todays social atmosphere.

Oh wait....never mind...

I would argue that the Colin Kaepernick Left sees EVERY American flag as racist.

If anything, singling out Betsy Ross as a racist...is a slap-in-the-face to ALL influential women throughout US history.

Racist is like hero. Its just a watered down word that holds no true meaning anymore. I mean how can a half white dude hatin on white people not be racist? But Obama did like Led Zeppelin. Did you see the Kennedy honors. Yeah....he got some white dude in there.

And why do Asian peeps get by with out being in this convo? You know they are racist too. And lithuanians......those peeps hate on everyone....damn you lithuanian americans!!!!

What I find odd is that all things from that era need to be destroyed, not talked about... shameful symbols of slavery, according to the Progressive left.

Yet they will proudly run for office as a Democrat, identify as a Democrat, support the Democratic party.

The Democratic party... an ACTUAL symbol of the era... the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crowe laws, the KKK.

Why hasn't any of these Woke SJW's called to ban the Democratic party?

Kinda odd, that...

Excellent point.

Why HASN'T the Party of Slavery and the KKK changed it's name from 'Democrat'?


PS...You've got a fascinating thread idea here, Lumenari.

Yup. I saw exactly that argument being made on the web this morning. Some white supremacists have begun using it, therefore it is now tainted for all time. Forever and ever.

They were successful with the confederate flag, now they're going after Betsy Ross's flag.

Only a matter of time before it's considered a hate crime to fly the Stars and Stripes.

I thought it already was, according to the left.

Did you watch the second Democratic debate?

No red, white, blue color scheme and not a single American flag.

It didn't become racist to appreciate her flag until the Retard said it was and the media lapped it up. They're selling shirts now that say "VICTORY" just below the Betsy Ross flag. Thanks, Retard, the total sales will probably be more than what Nike would have sold.




And here's the official shoe of the left wing party.

Because democrats are fighting to prove who hates America and her values the most. If it keeps up, the civil war they're begging for will be inevitable. It just won't turn out like they think it will.

If there was a Civil War the left would surrender in less than a week. Guaranteed.

Some people are evidently still in the "fundamental-transformation-of-America" mode. (Gawd! I hated that slogan with a passion.)

Fight it. Don't let it happen. Hold fast.

Our beautiful country, its underlying principles, and its history should unite us all. Those that are trying to rip it up, stomp on it, and spit on its artifacts, are trying to rob us of the things that remind us of how far we have come. It's like erasing all your childhood memories and experiences and burning all the old photographs, even the school pictures that make you cringe when you look at them now.

Damn right they would. All I need is one opportunity to be able to confront people like this and not have to go to jail for it. And I'll raise your guarantee with one of my own, and that's that there are millions out there like us who would take every advantage of such an opportunity.

Dude--Boston...greatest band...ever. First two albums are 1-2 on my desert island never-see-another-human-list. I believe they could solve humanities ills and allow aliens to meet us. God jams to Boston....and Jesus Just sayin.
