It just dawned on me why those morons think that. It is because the Tea Party folks used that flag and the Tea Party folks are racist therefore that flag must be racist.
I first heard that implied by Juan Williams on The O'Reilly Factor back in 2010. (back when I watched it, haven't watched that self centered blow-hard in years). Juan showed just what an ignorant fool he is. O'Reilly straightened him out."
On Monday's O'Reilly Factor on Fox News, NPR news analyst Juan Williams furthered the left's talking point about the tea party's supposed connection to militias, and even went so far to claim that the Gadsden or "Don't Tread on Me" flags used by the conservative grassroots movement is "the same imagery that was on Timothy McVeigh" [audio available here].
Williams made this preposterous claim during a panel discussion with the Weekly Standard's Mary Katharine Ham 25 minutes into the 8 pm Eastern hour.
