[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I’ve got to give the Left credit for one thing. They are incredibly good at manipulating people and falsifying reality, i.e. lying, in order to rewrite history. For decades, they have attempted to pass off their racist history to Republicans as they wrongfully claim that their Party has always been the Party of equal opportunity and civil rights. That is simply a blatant lie since the Democrat Party is the party of slavery, Jim Crow laws, and the party who vehemently opposed Civil Rights. But, that doesn’t stop them from lying about who they are and what they’ve done. We’re seeing it now once again with their hypocritical stance and criticism of the Confederate flag.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]As the flag is being blamed for the actions of a deranged white racist who made the decision to go into a church and kill nine black Christians, many on the Left are getting on their high horse about the flag in their quest to now banish it completely from society.
This is political opportunism at its finest, another thing the Democrats are good at. In the words of former Obama adviser Rahm “Deadfish” Emanuel, they never let a crisis go to waste.
This comes after years of trying to equate the Confederate flag with the Republican Party. But, there is one campaign button that will cause them some trouble since it demonstrates quite clearly how deeply enmeshed in Democrat history the Confederate flag truly is.
Barack Obama not only had a campaign pin with both his image and that of the Confederate flag, he referenced the flag positively in a speech delivered just three short years ago in 2012.
The Barack Obama quote on the pin says, “Where the confederate flag still flies, we have built a powerful coalition of African Americans and white Americans.”[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]In other words, though the flag is flying in some parts of the country, blacks and whites work together in a strong coalition, seemingly absolving the flag from any semblance of racism. Now, his tune and tone has changed.
Ironically, Obama said these words during a speech delivered at the Constitution Center in 2008 in which he defended his mentor, a man Obama said was like an uncle to him, the radical, racist, America-hating “pastor” Jeremiah Wright.
Let’s see the Democrats try to spin that out of history.
