Well, it seems that a lot of uninformed people propelled by mass media, are jumping on the bandwagon, that once again is headed nowhere.
Through out history governments have used similar tragedies to ban historical symbols, ideas, references, and even books. This is a fine example of how the masses are given feel good, do nothing, “solutions” to very real problems. America has succumbed to a terminal case of political correctness, aided and abetted by some of the most stupid and gullible people on the planet.
Welcome to your cultural revolution…
Amazon confirmed that it will pull “Confederate flag merchandise” from the website Tuesday afternoon, about an hour after eBay banned sales and auctions of similar stuff.
Sales of the flags were skyrocketing at Amazon at the time of the announcement. At the time of publication, a cheapo polyester Confederate battle flag remains the top seller in the site’s flag category, knocking the ever-popular Swastika into second place.
The sudden revulsion at the flag follows last week’s killing of nine people by white supremacist Dylann Roof, who has been charged with the murders and returned to South Carolina to face trial.
Here’s a novel idea…
Instead of blaming a flag for the Charleston massacre, we should be looking at the role of anti-depressants in the spate of killings by children doped up on selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
and… Ever contemplate that all this hysteria about the Confederate flag, Bruce Jenner, etc… is just a huge distraction. Today they voted in TPP. I guess the huge fight earlier this month about the bill was a big dog and pony show for us peons.
Presidential candidates are bloviating about the flag and not the TPP… unbelievable!!!
