As some call for South Carolina to take down the Confederate flag flying near its statehouse after Charleston’s shooting last week, conservatives in the news and on social media are worrying about what liberals might “ban” next. Target No. 1, some said, might be Old Glory.
“Is the American flag next?” Fox’s Kimberly Guilfoyle said on June 23, as Media Matters reported.
“People can also try to suggest that this . . . symbolizes wars, oppression. I was having a thoughtful conversation the other night with [conservative radio commentator] Laura Ingraham and she was saying to me, you know, at one point somebody will say they’re offended by this” flag.
On Wednesday, on her own radio show, Ingraham hinted at such concerns.
“[They’re] moving on from the flag to statues, memorials, perhaps Civil War reenactments, until what else?” Ingraham said, as Breitbart reported. “What else becomes an untouchable or unshowable in our society?”
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was more specific.
