So some dork "activist" climbed up a flag-pole and removed a Confederate flag. Naturally, that dork Michael Moore is all over that. Of course, the flag was up again within a couple of hours.
Tamika Lewis, a member of the citizens group that planned the flag removal, said she had hoped her organization’s action would prompt state leaders to keep the flag down. Lewis said her group consists of North and South Carolina residents.
“We did not expect that it would be raised again,” Lewis said, noting that state leaders “should just leave it down. They were having this hard decision whether or not to take it down. A lot of them are concerned about their political value and their political careers and all worried about losing their constituencies and their voters if they vote for the removal of this flag.
“So we ... took it upon ourselves to do the hard part and take it down. All they had to do was keep it down.”
What these folks don't realize, apparently, is that when it came to slaves, yeah, early America had a bunch...but this country was pikers. Most slaving was done by Spain and Portugal, and they sent millions of them to - wait for it - Brazil and the Caribbean.
From the trade’s beginning in the 16th century to its conclusion in the 19th, slave merchants brought the vast majority of enslaved Africans to two places: the Caribbean and Brazil. Of the more than 10 million enslaved Africans to eventually reach the Western Hemisphere, just 388,747—less than 4 percent of the total—came to North America.
Now, even one enslaved person is a terrible thing, and it's still going on to this day in the eastern hemisphere. But most of these clowns hear the word, "slave" - and immediately think of America (and in particular, the American South). But it wasn't really until the 1700s that the Brits started moving slaves to America, and that stopped shortly after the Revolution. After 1865, slaves were freed, thanks to Republicans.
That is, until LBJ enslaved blacks again by instituting the process of destroying their families.
The Confederate flag isn't the problem. The problem is Democrat policies, and it's been the problem all along.
