Under the guise of compassion and sensitivity those that have aiming to bring down the confederate flag in South Carolina has practiced the tried and technique of the left, standing on the bodies of dead people to promote an agenda. Those poor souls that were cut down in the Emanuel AME Church were not yet settled in heaven before president Obama is on television not calling for prayer and reflection but calling for gun control. They will take advantage of any and every opportunity to advance their agenda. It is a methodology that was shared by Rahm Emanuel while he the president’s chief staff.
We saw it at Sandy Hook. We saw it in Columbine, and the Gabby Gifford shooting. All times when the worst evil was on display the left switched to their agenda. And we are seeing it now with the gut-wrenching mass murder in South Carolina. Forces that have been fighting the Confederate Flag in South Carolina for years saw an opening when the shooter’s face book page showed him holding a confederate flag. And immediately, is was no longer about evil and horror and compassion for the families that lost loved ones. The full attention of the past few days have been squarely about confederate flags.
The truth is that the confederate flag is everything everyone says it is. It is part of the heritage of a segment of the American public. It is also a symbol of fear, hate, and bigotry for a segment of the American public. We must not get drawn into the thought that by eliminating these symbols we can eliminate the negative attributes that reside in people. These are the times that calmer and more thoughtful heads must lead these national discussions.
