Virginia’s McAuliffe plans to phase out Confederate flag license plate – The Washington Post.
Easily the most depressing thing about the move to remove the Confederate flag is learning all of the places that — 150 years after we defeated these racist traitors — continued to display or sell this racist, traitorous symbol. WTF, Virginia? You had this on your license plates? Even Texas went to the Supreme Court to resist putting the flag on their plates FFS. Wal-Mart? Amazon? Sears? Etsy?? WTF?
We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags and many items containing this image because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism,” eBay said in a statement.
Contemporary? CONTEMPORARY? It’s been a symbol of divisiveness, racism, and TREASON for over 150 years. You had to wait for nine people to be slaughtered in a place of worship AND for popular opinion to tip the economic scales AND THEN you remove the flag?
What’s interesting is that your head explodes at the divisiveness of the Confederate flag, but you seem okay with having the single most racially divisive president in our lifetime.
If by “racially divisive president” you mean “president whose mere existence pisses off racists,” my head does explode.
