Although our constitution protects a great many rights granted to us by our Creator, the right not to be offended is not one of them. So, when a few Tennessee residents heard President Barack Obama was coming to town, they decided they would go out and greet him – and he probably didn’t like it.
The entire ordeal took place in Madison, where Obama was set to speak at Stratton Elementary School regarding his healthcare law. However, on his way back to the airport, a few people lined the streets to give him a proper dose of Southern hospitality.
All who showed up were adequately armed with and bearing the Confederate flag, waving him a good ol’ fashioned goodbye.
As you very well know, Obama – in league with a few other progressive minded folk – have called for the banning of the Confederate flag. Unfortunately, their ignorance is their downfall, as they not only believe the flag to stand for something it does not, but they don’t actually have the right to tell Americans what to do.
“For many, black and white, that flag was a reminder of systemic oppression and racial subjugation,” Obama said during the eulogy of those that died in the South Carolina mass killing. “We see that now,” he added.
However, demonstrator Rick Martin most recently argued, “Our flag doesn’t mean race, it’s a heritage thing.”
That being said, that’s why you’ll end up seeing Americans with Confederate flags going out of their way to annoy Obama on the matter. What do you think – if you lived in the area, would you have stood shoulder to shoulder with those Americans? I know I would have.
