I think they want all symbols of rebellion to be purged from society (other than what they manage themselves in the media). They don't want anyone being inspired by the history of a people who had the balls to revolt against the United States government. And damn near win.
Of course, that's not the whole of it. There's the whole racial tension thing they're deliberately stoking up, but I really do think that erasing this type of symbolism from our culture serves their interest in creating a docile population and is, therefore, a primary reason for this propaganda saturation.
"They", in all of this is, of course (and none other than), "you know who".
