Now that the SJWs have succeeded in pressuring spineless Republican politicians to pull down the Confederate Battle Flag in South Carolina, they found a whole new set of targets to be offended about:
“NEW ORLEANS — The fleur de lis is a symbol that is deeply ingrained in Louisiana’s history. Seen in architecture, the state flag and on the helmets of the Saints, it’s everywhere.
But while it is now seen as the mark of our great state, it was once used to mark slaves.
“Code noir, those words are French and mean black code,” said slave historian Dr. Ibrahima Seck. …”
Louisiana’s fleur-de-lis, for starters.
The latest round of targets include the movie Gone With The Wind, the television show The Dukes of Hazzard, Maryland’s state song Maryland, My Maryland, and the Massachusetts state flag. Of course the Washington Redskins, an NFL professional football team, have been a longstanding target of SJW ire, and now it seems the New Orleans Saints will have to go too.
