Make no mistake, the Left is Totalitarian. It was Rahm Emanuel, current Chicago mayor and former senior adviser to President Obama, who said:
You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.
Make no mistake… this “crisis” is not about the Confederate flag… it is about further marginalizing Republicans in the eyes of minorities.
Here is the electoral map from Obama vs. Romney:
Does anybody seriously think that if the Democrats controlled the South they would anger Southerners by going after the Confederate flag?
Of course not… there would be too many votes at stake.
But since the Democrats have lost the South what are they really risking?
Politics is all about controlling your risk… if you vote for something how many votes will you lose or gain? If you abstain will you pick up supporters or lose them?
By pushing so hard to make the Confederate flag (which Democratic politicians have put on their campaign buttons for generations) an issue they can poke and prod blacks and Hispanics by saying the Republican party is filled with extremists and racists.
Republican South Carolina governor Nikki Haley went ahead and banned the Confederate flag from flying over the state capitol but retailers like Amazon.com are pulling it from the website (unless you live in place like Germany where it’s still available).
This is just the first step in the Left’s social attack and we’ll have more to say about this tomorrow…
