NAACP: The Betsy Ross Flag is Racist

Everything & Everyone is a Racist

  • Leftists are incapable of rational thought. No matter what the subject the race baiters scream "racism" to whip the mouth-breathing Sheeple into a frenzy.

(Infowars)  -  The flag, which represents the 13 colonies by using stars arranged in a circle, was described by the NAACP Greater Grand Rapids Branch of Michigan as a symbol of the “racist” Patriot movement.
Chapter president Cle J. Jackson attacked the flag after Forest Hills Center High School students brought one to a Sept. 9 football game alongside a Trump flag.
“Celebrating flags co-opted by exclusionary movements, held next to political banners of a presidential candidate who has offended people of color and immigrants, and accompanied by chants of ‘Go home’ by some students at a majority White school to players at a predominantly African-American school are not coincidences by unaware students,” he said. “They are intentional actions of intimidation and rooted in no agenda other than to insult, to injure, and to incite.”
Even if there were racist students present, as he claims, that doesn’t mean the Betsy Ross flag by itself is racist.
If a white supremacist walked down the street carrying a NAACP banner while chanting racial slurs, does that make the NAACP banner racist? Of course not.
Interestingly, during the nationwide purge of the Confederate flag in 2015, radio host Rush Limbaugh warned the US flag would be next.
“The American flag has flown over a slave nation much longer than the Confederate flag did, folks. The American flag has flown over all kinds of atrocities,” he said, calling the purge an “all-out assault on what the left thinks is a last remaining enclave of solid Republican voters, and that is the South.”
He had a good point, but the issue goes even deeper than partisan politics.
The real reason why the Betsy Ross flag is under attack just like the rebel flag is because there’s an establishment agenda to purge anything that represents resistance to central authority.
The claim that both flags are “racist” is just a convenient excuse pushed by the establishment to convince people to purge the flags.
And the purge isn’t just targeting “solid Republican voters” like Limbaugh claims but populism and nationalism in general.
As long as people cherish historic symbols of freedom, they will never bow down to oppressive authority.

The First Rhode Island Regiment
The Continentals, including George Washington's troops, had such a mixture of black and white soldiers that a French staff officer referred to them as "speckled." American combat troops were not integrated as they were in the 1770s and 1780s until the Korean War 170 years later.
Free blacks and slaves often enlisted from New England. The First Rhode Island, a majority black unit, was well known. In the South, there was a congressionally approved plan—never realized—to arm, and eventually to free, three thousand slaves for service as a military unit for South Carolina and Georgia.
