The bigger question is:
Are we a Constitutional Republic, or a Democracy?
This won’t stop folks, it just won’t.
As soon as South Carolina caved under public pressure to remove the Confederate flag from government buildings etc., the next phase went into full effect.
The confederate flag is proclaimed as a symbol of racism and oppression. Those same activists view the U.S.A stars and stripes the same way.
What is to become of monuments and memorials to Southern generals and history. Surely, all of that is just as offensive to the same crowd of activists. Mississippi State university? Ol Miss? “The Rebel” sports groups?
Ponce De Leon, Christopher Columbus, General Lee…. where do you stop? When will you reach a point that no-one is offended? The Alamo? Washington Park? Gettysburg? Penns Landing?
It won’t stop folks. These same people will tear it all down, and will eventually be telling the people in Massachusetts that Plymouth Rock is a symbol of white oppression and racism.
Some folks may laugh and dismiss the controversy, but predicting where this is headed is really a no brainer.
