1. Is that like one of those III percenters symbols, without the III?

I often think they can't be that stupid.... I am often wrong.

5. My neighbors were flying a funky flag with stars

That are in the shape of a star.hope they fly the Betsy Ross. It would make the case to prove the odd grabfest that has been going on in my neighborhood is based on racism and an attempt by white supremacists to create an insular society.

8. I'm gonna guess that it's there

not because it's just a nice historical flag,

nor because a handful of skinheads used it, as one of many flags, and we define others by the worst among them,

but because "we" decided that since a few skinheads used it that must be its One True Eternal Meaning and as a result everybody who has ever used it, however they may have deluded themselves at the time, is automatically both a racist and inferior to us

and because he really likes tweaking "our" noses.

Can someone explain to me why the Betsy Ross Flag, the first flag of our country, is now racist?

These morons get so upset about the 13 stars on the Betsy Ross flag but complete ignore the 13 bars on the flag which represent the exact same thing.

Pretty much everything is a dog whistle in liberals' addled brains.  Which I wholeheartedly enjoy.  And the best part is that 99% of the country doesn't obsess over such minutia.

So . . . Does that mean that the gay hairdressers who live 200 yards away from me are secret conservatives?  They fly a Betsy Ross flag, and started when the current bovine excrement over the flag came to the current level.
"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty." - Thomas Jefferson

"All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don't sit looking at it - walk!" -Ayn Rand
 
"Those that trust God with their safety must yet use proper means for their safety, otherwise they tempt Him, and do not trust Him.  God will provide, but so must we also." - Matthew Henry, Commentary on 2 Chronicles 32, from Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible

"These anti-gun fools are more dangerous to liberty than street criminals or foreign spies."--Theodore Haas, Dachau Survivor

Of course it's a symbol of hate - it's a symbol of America, and given that American values are the precise opposite of DUmmy values any American symbol represents the precise opposite of DUmmy-land...therefore they hate it.
