Unlike the Confederate flag, leftists aren’t calling for a ban of the gay flag linked to WDBJ shooter Vester Lee Flanagan.
Police reportedly confiscated a gay pride flag from Flanagan’s apartment on Wednesday, but in an example of hypocrisy, this hasn’t sparked outrage from liberals who wanted to ban the Confederate flag due to its association with Charleston, S.C. church shooter Dylann Roof.
“Libs got the Confederate flag taken down in South Carolina,” blogger Dave Blount pointed out. “They have imposed a de facto ban throughout the country through their control of major retailers like Walmart, Amazon, eBay, Sears, etc.”
“The show The Dukes of Hazard has been taken off the air because it features the flag on the roof of a car.”
The fact that this hasn’t happened to the rainbow flag, even though Flanagan also wanted a “race war” just like Roof, reveals that the Confederate flag wasn’t banned because it’s “racist” but because there’s an agenda to purge anything that’s not “politically correct.”
But more importantly, the Confederate flag doesn’t fit into what the establishment is pushing, such as cultural marxism and the destruction of the nuclear-family model to encourage individuals to be more supportive – and dependent – on the government.
And the political elite also hate the flag for what it stands for: resistance to central authority.
“He who becomes master of a city accustomed to freedom and does not destroy it, may expect to be destroyed by it, for in rebellion it has always the watch-word of liberty and its ancient privileges as a rallying point, which neither time nor benefits will ever cause it to forget,” noted 16th-century historian Niccolò Machiavelli wrote as a warning to the elite.
