That racist flag

What did I learn this week, in August 2015, in case anyone is interested? I learned the POW_MIA flag was racist Well, now I know because someone tells us so.

So according to a columnist in Newsweek, the POW-MIA flag is racist and should be pulled down, ASAP. Mediaite

Newsweek reprinted a column by journalist Rick Perlstein on Tuesday arguing that the POW/MIA flag had racist origins.

“You know that racist flag?” he writes in “The Forgotten Story of America’s Other Racist Flag.” “The one that supposedly honors history but actually spreads a pernicious myth? And is useful only to venal right-wing politicians who wish to exploit hatred by calling it heritage? It’s past time to pull it down.”

There just is no limits to what the left will do, to obviously offend people. Apparently there is much forgotten in his mind. I’m learning a lot of shiit. But a cautionary note, he has more in store from his new book being hawked by many on the Left.

And the Federalist has a piece on it.

    So die hard commie Perlstein is showing his ass again eh? That commie to the bone marrow loves to spout the Alinsky party isn’t progressive enough. He despises conservative values (has written a few books slamming us). If it has anything to do with conservative viewpoints or values, it’s racist or horrible for this country. He’s a loud mouth joke that just isn’t funny.

      Dave, you seem to be neutral on him. LOL Right he must be celebrated on the left scope of history which likes to control it. Another liberal coffee table weight.

      Dave, he wasn’t really on my radar before. He makes a hell of an impression though. As it turns out his explanation is no better than what he said. And hold your breath, along with your lilly white ass, because he now apologizes for using the word racist. [That word was over the top and uncalled for, and I’m deeply sorry it hurt people–especally people who’ve selflessly served their coutnry.] But then he digs his heels in. So yeah, I guess that even sounds sort of like Jeb too.

        A long time, conservative friend who loves to read told me about him a while back. Perlstein hated Goldwater and Nixon. He also blogged for a commie think tank for a while. That’s how I’d heard of him previously.

        He’s another commie that has reaped the great benefits of our nation, profited from them and then turns around and promotes they’re not fair and/or right. His racist comment article now has droves of commies shooting off their mouth that flag is racist.

        He can stick his apology, because he opened up another bullsh*t Pandora box for the commies to promote. And I believe his apology is the biggest lie he’s ever spouted. He said what he meant and meant what he said.
