“The Agenda” and the Confederate Flag

By Al Benson Jr.
There was an Internet article on http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com the headline of which read “Confederate Flag’s Re-emergence: Racism or Regional Pride?” To those of you who follow this sort of thing, you already know where this article is going. It’s one among scores that seem to appear every week across the country. Someone, somewhere waves a Confederate flag and the “news” (what a laugh) media is there to shout “KKK Invasion!” It would be ludicrous if it were not so sad. A public-school-“educated” populace is so completely befuddled that many of them actually take this stuff seriously.
According to this article Confederate flags seem to have made a re-emergence in the Philadelphia area—a region those of Yankee/Marxist mentality thought they had sewed up. Turns out they might be in error.
The article notes: “It’s been spotted on license plates in Atlantic City and Collingdale, draped across a truck in a Kohl’s parking lot and flying on poles outside homes in Montgomery and Chester counties.” Someone saw one handing “inside an apartment near Capitolo Playground in South Philly.” Hanging inside an apartment where people going by might be able to see it and become “offended.” There’s a hanging offense if ever there was one! And I’m sure there are lots of folks around that are just waiting to be offended so they can get their “fifteen minutes of fame” with the local “news” media. You’d be surprised how many people there are that get “offended” when they see a Confederate flag somewhere they can complain about. It’s the high point of their lives! And it’s even being displayed at “…country-rock tailgate parties outside the Susquehanna Bank Center.”  Why that’s almost too much! Has it ever occurred to anyone that all these folks, especially in South Philly, can’t be Southerners?
