Post-Racial America Update

Oklahomans showed President Obama this week precisely what they thought of him when he came to visit the state to talk about federal prison reform.

Supporters of the confederate flag have their own message to send to President Obama.
In Durant this morning, trucks lined up awaiting his arrival, and now supporters are in Bricktown. 
Supporters want to let the President know the Confederate flag, they say, stands for heritage, not hate. The organizer of the event is someone you might not expect to see standing behind this cause. 
Its a red, white and blue that, for many, carries a message of hate… but that’s not the point these folks want to get across. 
“We don’t believe it’s a symbol of racism,” Andrew Duncomb, an organizer who calls himself “the Black Rebel” says. 
“Hell, I’m just out here supporting my flag, not racists, I don’t want no problems with anybody,” a supporter said. 
A message contrary to the thousands gathering weeks earlier in South Carolina to remove the very same flag. 
They’re blaming the racist problems on the flag and not on the real problems of America. Through the race lies the people who carry and harbor the hate inside,” Duncomb says.

Yeah, showing up to greet this president with Confederate flags waving high.  Classy move, Sooners. Next time get hoods, yes?

Also points for finding that one black guy that thinks the flag is okay, so that it somehow obliterates the value of the tens of millions of Americans who are embarrassed and upset at what that flag of actual, literal traitors to our country means.

Good think racism is over, right?

About the Eurozone, it's a shame they don't keep records of who made out like bandits by moving Euros to Greece during the heady days of "Everybody Gets Rich Now!" because it might be fair and wise and reasonable to tap those guys for the assistance funds needed to keep the entire economy going. I don't exactly like sending a big chunk of my tax dollars down to Mississippi, although they have the good sense to keep their vaccination rates up, but I accept it as the price for the smooth functioning of the American Monetary Union that benefits me quite substantially. Remember, kossacks and conservative bonebrains, that is what the government actually does: an insurance company with a military arm, it provides a modest social safety network while smoothing out the fluctuations in the economy and making sure your precious investments hold their value tolerably well.

You know what? They're right. Let them keep it. It's a symbol of heritage.

A heritage of treason in the name of slavery. A heritage of the continued abuse of other human beings. A heritage of a failed cause of evil. A heritage of abject impotence against the superior forces whom they turned against. A heritage of complete, and utter impotence against the fact that life goes on, this country will get better, and we will move on without them no matter if they like it or not.


And they take pride in that. Pitiful. Absolutely pitiful. I'd like to say it's better if we just nuke the motherfuckers into glass, but that would be a mercy they do not deserve.
