Marketwatch: For Juneteenth, America Needs a New Flag

I’m old enough to remember when neo-Confederates were saying twenty years ago that the attack on the Confederate battle flag was a slippery slope because Old Glory flew over slavery far longer and even through the War Between the States. Isn’t the American flag also “racist”?

Marketwatch:

“The Confederate battle flag, which was crafted as a symbol of opposition to the abolishment of slavery, is just recently tired. We don’t see it much anymore. However, on the 6th, when the stormers rained on the nation’s most precious hut, waving Old Glory — the memo was received: the American flag is its replacement. 

President Biden, Madame Harris and members of Congress: the American flag has been hijacked as code for a specific belief. God bless those believers, they can have it. Like the Confederate, it is tattered, dated, divisive, and incorrect. It no longer represents democracy and freedom. It no longer represents ALL of us. It’s not fair to be forced to honor it. It’s time for a new flag. …

On to the stripes. The Smithsonian documents that the “white” stripes represent purity and innocence. America is great. It is beautiful. Pure, it ain’t. It is broken and in pieces. …

Sixty-two years later, in 2021, we have changed and it’s time for a reset, a transformation. One that represents all states and all of us.”

Conservatives laughed off that argument.

We were assured that it would never get that crazy. The same people like Rich Lowry at National Review also said that the campaign against Confederate symbols and monuments that was being waged because of “racism” and “white supremacy” WOULD NOT slip into a broader attack on the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, the “American Idea,” Abraham Lincoln, Union monuments and Old Glory.

Note: Yesterday, Joe Biden signed the “Juneteenth National Independence Day Act” which created a new federal holiday to celebrate Independence Day. Conservatives voted for it!

    • NOW is it time for Secession? NOW? What about…. now?

      Not with a bang, but with a whimper….

  1. I have never seen anything like this. Jammed through in one week. Signs up on shit-tard businesses celebrating “freedom”, all the banks closed. Incredible. I guess this is our new 4th of July. The old one was fake and gay anyway. Probably more so if you are a Southerner. There really isn’t anything left worth celebrating in the occupied USA anyway so kick back, pop a beer and hope for some amusing chimp-outs on Monday.

  2. I don’t like Old Gory either. The 50 Stars of David should be replaced with a big swazi tilted at an angle.

  3. A good design for replacing the US flag would have the stars of the canton replaced with a blue on a star of David on a white field containing a green dollar sign in the center of it. The field would have the stripes removed and replaced with the rainbow flag. This flag could unify “conservatives” and “liberals” and end the bickering by giving them something they love more than the old republic. Libtards get the gay agenda while contards get Israel. What will bring about “unity” is something they both like- sign of the dollar.

    Post modern Judeo-Plutocratic America isn’t worthy of the US flag or the CS flag.

  4. I will observe June 19th as Rosenberg Execution Day (“RED” for short) and celebrate each year by slow roasting a large slab of meat on the bbq. Celebrating RED will also present many teachable moments, among which is that of being wary of letting come in a pitiable stranger in need. For it turns out that he or she might later do you, your family and your grandchildren harm.

    As an aside, I hate the name Juneteenth. What an ignorant expression. It’s akin to when Maxine Waters used to refer to Donald Trump as “Fo-dee-fibe”.

    • Does it really matter at the end of the day? Women are more rational and focused on details of the goal. A Flag means nothing in 2021 America.
