Flag Waving Flip-Flop

by Greg Saunders

Has anyone bothered to point out that the righteous rage on the right over the flying of the Mexican flag by some attendees at the pro-immigration protests is coming from the same people who defended the confederate flag as a source of “southern pride” (as opposed to the rallying symbol for slave-owners and their defenders)? They were for taking pride in regional/ethnic differences before they were against it. Seems like a racist double-standard to me, but pretty consistent if you stop taking conservatives at their word.

Excellent point!

But couldn't you reverse it?

If you found the Confederate flag offensive, shouldn't you likewise be bothered by people from other countries flying their flag in protest in our streets?
