The Flagger Imagination

First, it was a warning about “vandalism.” Now, it’s a warning about terrorism:

You know what worries me the most about the level of vicious hatred individual Leftist haters express on postings of these types of articles lately?

I worry that sooner or later some lone nut or two, possibly inspired by the anti-Confederate flag rhetoric of these people will – in the name of “tolerance” and “patriotism” of course – commit some heinous act of violence of the type that took place in Aurora, CO or recently in Boston, MA. 

Its all too easy for me to envision someone planting a pressure cooker or worse pulling an AK-47 on a Veteran’s Day Parade that features Confederate re-enactors. 

The Left has recently shown these last couple of years they can no longer reasonably control their crazies, assuming they are even trying.

Yup, really.

Roden's ravings

Ah, so the Flaggers’ “civil rights struggle” might be the target of terrorism. People who question the display of the Confederate battle flag are “the forces of reactionary hatred.”

What will they think of next?

    Today’s Confederate Heritage advocates have always exhibited a certain degree of paranoia. Still, one hopes they never receive the kind of attention that Emmett Till got.

    Neither Boston nor Co were done by “Leftists”, but there was a backpack bomb attempt planted at a MLK parade in Spokane WA a few years back. They caught the bomb before it went off.

    And, BTW, it was planted by racist white supremacist right wing extremists who were part of a NWF secessionist movement.

    Oh, and should we talk about OK City too?

    It appears the “terrorists” are more aligned with their ilk than ours.

    “John Brown wannabees” huh? That’s a new one for me.

    Hey, terrorism fixed that whole “Reconstruction” thing for them. Why not try it again?

    It’s funny, because for those of us on Earth Prime, “the Left” has its crazies pretty well under control (and many of its more extreme but non-crazies too, much to their frustration). But for some folks it’s always the 60s. 19- or 18-, whichever fits their persecution complex best.

      Oh, I just think Grayson Jennings and Carl Roden are paving the way for false flag ( :)) operations. If something happens to the flag pole, they want to control the narrative beforehand. That’s why one should recall the Walker incident. This group likes to provoke confrontation while pretending they’re victims whose civil rights are being compromised (because they don’t want to hear any voices that challenge their own). They can’t prevail in the marketplace of ideas.

    I am just offended by the display of a flag which represents the death of 365,000 Union soldiers and the maiming of another 280,000 by the actions of thise who fought under that banner.

    As a retired US Army officer I say their honor be damned.

    It’s an interesting little note that both neo-Confederates and those on the very far fringe left both hate the U.S. flag.
