Let’s be very clear about a very obvious fact. Interrogating Republicans about their position on the “Confederate flag,” actually the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia, is like asking Jonas Salk his position on polio.
The Republican party was founded as an anti-slavery party, and its first president fought a war against troops carrying that flag to save the Union and to end slavery in the United States. Notwithstanding that fact, the democrat operatives who masquerade as “journalists” have hounded every Republican presidential candidate about this ridiculous non-issue, brought to the fore courtesy of this week’s Freak of the Week, an intellectually-stunted, drug-addled dolt, alleged murderer Dylann Roof. They have insisted on hectoring these GOP hopefuls like interrogators at some Stalinist show trial, demanding that they recite the politically correct dogma that this heinous flag must be immediately ripped down, burned, and its ashes buried inside a lead-incased receptacle. lest it ever be heard from again.
Any Republican candidate with the brains of an ant should recognize these incessant questions about this 19th century banner as a big, fat, fastball right over the plate, and smack it out of the park by pointing out, what is well-known to people with a basic understanding of American history; specifically, that it is the democrat party that is the party of slavery, succession, segregation, and socialism, which is modern day slavery. Sadly, this knowledgeable cohort appears to be a shrinking group, something that no doubt pleases the lame stream media and the education establishment
What is Hillary Clinton’s position on the Confederate flag? We heard her droning on earlier this week about the irredeemable racism of our country, stating in that nails-on-a-blackboard voice that “it shouldn’t fly anywhere.” That was at a speech in Florissant, Missouri, NOT in response to a question from a truth-seeking reporter. I guess they didn’t need to ask because they know that as a good liberal democrat, Hillary HATES the evil flag, and always has. They might point to the fact in 2007 she called for it be removed from the South Carolina statehouse grounds. But wait, aren’t they forgetting something? While Bill was governor of Arkansas, he and Hillary presided over the Confederate Flag Day every year. Perhaps she has forgotten about that. She did hit her head right before she was supposed to testify about Benghazi, another event about which she has no doubt forgotten a thing or two. But shouldn’t reporters be at least be a tad curious?
