Recently in an article, I quoted from the book Embattled Banner by Don Hinkle where he described the tactics of those who hate Confederate symbols, particularly the NAACP. He stated on page 163 of his book that: “Such strategy has been used by anti-flaggers throughout the South ever since the battle flag debate surfaced. In short, their strategy is this: Go in and agitate; get rid of what you can and then pull back; wait for things to calm down, then return to wipe out the rest.”
With things quiet right now on the anti-Confederate flag front, I wonder if that’s what we are seeing at this point. That dubious photo of Dylann Roof holding the Confederate battle flag surfaced almost immediately after the tragic shooting of those black folks in Charleston and it was like the first round of an orchestrated wrestling match. Every scurvy politician, North or South, started screaming that the Battle flags all had to come down, the monuments had to disappear, the streets and parks all had to be renamed (preferably for socialists)–the whole nine yards! Well, these folks got some of what they wanted. The Political Class, always known to have the courage of a flea, especially in an election year, did exactly what the Cultural Marxists’ script called for them to do–they waffled, caved in, and tried to appear to take the moral high ground by calling for Confederate flags to come down.
They did exactly the same thing the Communists did. In this case the “moral high ground” was a swamp.
