NPS Removes Battle Flag From Battlefield

Mark Alexander · Jun. 26, 2015

The hive mind appears to be taking over. While it should be left to the people of South Carolina to decide if the Confederate flag should be removed from their state capitol grounds, the rush to jerk it from all store shelves or any public view is astounding. From the “General Lee” of Dukes of Hazzard fame, to Apple pulling Civil War games from the App Store, to the National Cathedral removing stained glass over the mere presence of the Confederate flag, this cultural cleansing is absurd. Now, the nation’s first National Military Park, Chickamauga, a park established in 1890 for reconciliation between veterans of the Confederate and Union forces after the War Between the States, has removed Confederate battle flags from its gift shops. Gettysburg has done so as well. They were ordered to do so by National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis, who said in a memo to all parks, “We strive to tell the complete story of America. All sales items in parks are evaluated based on educational value and their connection to the park. Any stand-alone depictions of Confederate flags have no place in park stores.” Huh? Obviously Jarvis, an avowed Leftist, is propagating Obama’s race-bait narrative and is a adept as his boss at speaking out of both sides of his mouth.

Meanwhile, Obama no doubt will be promoting his race bait later today when delivering the eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who, again, supported the flying of the Confederate flag at the SC capitol. If black lives really matter, then why does Obama not deliver eulogies for the other 20 blacks murdered every day on average, most by other blacks? Simple: It doesn’t fit the race-bait narrative.

Finally, of course, the American flag flew over those 13 rebellious states before the Confederate battle flag was ever flown. Better get that American flag down next. It has been said that ignorance is bliss, but the fact is, ignorance is miserable.
