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.
