Kevin Levin at Civil War Memory is miffed by the latest example of the wrong sort of people identifying with the Confederate flag.
In October, nine students in Michigan were suspended for wearing the Confederate flag. In November, a White girl in New Jersey was suspended for wearing a Confederate flag sweatshirt. Now even an African-American student in South Carolina has gotten in trouble for displaying the Confederate flag in his dorm room.
Who can blame them? Who would want to identify with BRA’s flag? Who would want to identify with BRA’s national anthem after hearing it performed by Beyonce and Christina Aguilera at the Superbowl?
Should Northerners identify with the Confederate flag? Why not? As Kevin Levin explains, the Confederate flag was “carried by the military arm of a government pledged to defend slavery and white supremacy.”
In the 1950s, the Confederate flag was used as “a symbol of Massive Resistance” to the Civil Rights Movement. Daryl Lamont Jenkins of One People’s Project felt compelled to rip apart a Confederate flag at Gettysburg. That makes it even more attractive as the ideal symbol of White Identity and opposition to Black Run Amerika.
Jewish liberal historians hate the Confederate flag because it is “divisive.” The NAACP is offended by the sight of the Confederate flag. Feminists hate the Confederate flag because it is a symbol of the patriarchy. That is why the Confederate flag should be displayed on every possible occasion.
Note: When Barack Hussein Obama was traveling through Virginia in BRA’s Freedom Ride, he was given a nice Southern welcome. This is an excellent demonstration of how to properly display the Confederate flag as a symbol of “Massive Resistance” to BRA.
