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.
Expect there to be more permanent revolution until there’s some effective pushback.
Hunter, I know that there have been parallels drawn between ISIS and Southern Cultural genocide. But do you also see any parallels between current events and Mao’s cultural revolution? The reason why I bring this up is because they are both leftist movements.
This negro shit is getting out of hand, The fleur de lys is the basis of the flag of the Canadian province of Quebec…and the flag that many Quebecois hope will be the standard of a new independent French speaking republic in North America,,high time to tell these chimps to F..ck off! I’m so sick of kowtowing to these primitive primates!!
What issue have liberals ever lost on since WWII?
Certainly the mayor of New Orleans will want to get on this quickly like he did with Confederate statues. I think he would want to use the same lame “nuisance” charge.
The New Orleans Saints with their “who dat nation” must rid their helmets of the slave brand. God speed!
Cultural Genocide: prelude to physical genocide.
The business with the Massachusetts flag won’t go anywhere. Yankees won’t put up with the kinds of things they regularly impose on Southerners by force of law. They’ll whine and cry and make appeals to “patriotism” and “Americanism®”. The duplicitous hypocrites. The Texas flag is probably next.
I’m so pleased to see that some are getting this godawful joke. I’ve some associates who still don’t believe it possible. I then remind:
-Robespierre and The Reign Of Terror
-Chairman Mao Tse-Dung and his Cultural Revolution
And you wonder where Orwell got the ideas? Mmm? Boss is right, it’s a first step towards sending us to the ovens…..
The next step might be to ban the words “black” and “noir” and replace them by the Swahili “nyeusi”. The basic plan might be to totally eliminate all European peoples and all European languages and cultures. Liberalism, Marxism-Leninism, and Maoism are variants of the same ideology.
“Chinese replaced Tibetan as the official language. Despite official pronouncements, there has been no practical change in this policy. Without an adequate command of Chinese, Tibetans find it difficult to get work in the state sector. Secondary school children are taught all classes in Chinese. Although English is a requirement for most university courses, Tibetan school children cannot learn English unless they forfeit study of their own language. Many children are sent away to China for education. In 1992 there were 10,000 such children in China, cut off from their own cultural heritage. Since 1994, the Chinese have strengthened their drive to re-educate young Tibetans about their cultural past at all levels of Tibetan education. They use a distorted history programme which omits reference to an independent Tibet. … Religious practice was forcibly suppressed until 1979, and up to 6,000 monasteries and shrines have been destroyed.”
War baby, war.
I refuse to believe that a symbol so important to French high culture in and of itself was every used to brand slaves. I don’t care if there was a French revolution, nothing makes the transition from a king’s crown to a nigger-slave’s ass at the hands of a Frenchman.
Yes, there’s no end to it now the genie is out of the bottle – logic dictates first symbols of whiteness and then whiteness itself.
“But do you also see any parallels between current events and Mao’s cultural revolution?”
Yes, very like it. These things have an internal logic and once the ball is rolling that logic drives them to crazy places.
Look, it’s about removing symbols of your tribe. That is the covert strong goal.
The official justification is that the symbol is ‘immoral’. But that is just a tool to achieve the covert goal.
