Right Wing Protesters Bring Confederate Flag to White House, Call on Obama to “Put Down the Koran”
If you want people to believe that the Affordable Care Act is the worst thing since slavery, maybe it’s not a good idea to wave a freaking Confederate flag at your White House protest. The symbolism is beyond appalling: the first black President of the United States protested with the Dixie flag.
Pro tip: If you want to express your love of US Army & its monuments … leave the Confederate flag at home. pic.twitter.com/dyByu9av51
Seriously, what the hell is wrong with these people?
And that’s not all, folks: At Tea Party-Like Rally, Obama Told to ‘Put the Quran Down’.
One speaker went as far as saying the president was a Muslim and separately urged the crowd of hundreds to initiate a peaceful uprising.
“I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up,” said Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group.
Wingnut blogger Glenn Reynolds says the Confederate flag was planted by liberals, presumably to make right wingers look bad. “Usually is,” said Glenn.
@JeffreyGoldberg Prob a plant. Usually is.
