What Country Did I Wake Up In?

I've been displaying the American flag, along with the Pledge of Allegiance on this blog, since at least July 2012. I do so proudly, and have no intent on ceasing. Imagine my surprise when the left in this country this week deemed the display of the flag to be a racist act. (Actually, I am not surprised at all.)

The left in California are spurred on by a 9th Circuit court ruling that the American flag is a "symbol of racial animus." I wondered if they still have it displayed in the courtrooms there. It seems the leftists are upset that patriotic Americans would protest the Court's declaration. The flag-haters choose to ignore the fact that the activist court's proclamation was based on a fear of violence by foreign students at the school, not the American citizens displaying the flag. Yet it was the rights of Americans the court decided to restrict.

Twitchy has preserved the liberal sputtering here. I'd advise your blood pressure medicine before clicking that link.

  1. By that logic, all flags are racist. Heck, why even organize within the nation-state at all? It will only lead to violence.

    Oh wait, people ARE violent, and we need to build certain institutions to contain that instinct. And we could look to our Church as an example, but that's also intolerant.

    We'll just have to wait until the state saves us.

  2. David, always enjoy reading your "musings".
    Can you send me an email when you get a moment? I need to ask your opinion on some beer.
    Thanks!
