The Betsy Ross flag somehow, overnight, became a symbol of hate.
I just don’t get it. HOW? WHY?
It’s like the Left just arbitrarily DECIDES things are wrong now. I DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND WHERE THIS CAME FROM.
It’s gotten so bad, an MCNBC panelist openly compared the flag to a swastika or a burning cross.
WHAT IN THE FRESH HELL JUST HAPPENED?!
According to Daily Wire:
MSNBC regular Michael Eric Dyson rushed to Colin Kaepernick’s defense on the network Wednesday, calling the “Betsy Ross” flag — the original American flag for the 13 colonies — a symbol of racist oppression akin to a Nazi swastika or a burning cross.
Speaking on the subject with MSNBC host Hallie Jackson, Dyson claimed that the flag is a well-known symbol of white supremacy, even though few Americans — and more than a few historians — hadn’t heard about the flag’s problematic history before this week, when former NFL second-string quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, complained about the flag appearing on a pair of limited-edition Nike sneakers.
“Symbols matter too. Why don’t we wear a swastika for July Fourth?… It makes a difference,” Dyson said. “The cross burning on somebody’s lawn. Why don’t we have a Nike, you know, celebration of the cross?”
WHAT IS HE EVEN SPEWING?!
HOW DO THOSE SYMBOLS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE BETSY ROSS FLAG?!
WHAT HAVE WE COME TO?!
PS: The Betsy Ross flag was JUST FINE a few years ago:
