The Confederate Flag as a distraction from current issues – a commentary by TexasFred
Make NO mistake Ladies and Gentlemen, I am a dyed in the wool Southern born man with a Rebel’s heart that became a Texan by choice many years ago.
I have NO documented association with the Civil War, none that I can prove, but none the less I am still a PROUD Southerner and Texan. I love the Southern lifestyle, REAL Southern people and everything about the South and Texas; even their choices in the War of Northern Aggression, but we have to get our heads together folks.
We have a hell of a lot more going wrong in this nation than the fight for the Confederate Flag and flying it on Statehouses or at NASCAR events.
The Confederate flag is, in MY opinion, being used to deflect our interest and attention away from other matters, issues that affect our freedoms far more than the flag.
Those that seek to bring about its demise KNOW that the flag is a serious *hot button* issue for Southern folks and they KNOW that many will still, to this day, FIGHT FOR that flag and it being displayed and they know hat far too many have a *single focus* issue where the Confederate flag is concerned. This being turned into a grand event for the Left, for Communists, Marxists and RINOs, it is being turned into a *false flag* event.
No one can stop you from flying your flag; just DO IT!
My friends, let’s get our focus back on the issues that are going to bring about the next revolution; the fight over 1st and 2nd Amendments and all the rest of our God-given rights.
