Why telling it like it is should be a newsworthy event.

Why telling it like it is should be a newsworthy event.

I’ll be honest, the whole kerfuffle regarding the “Confederate Flag” hasn’t drawn very much interest for me because of the following reasons:

One, it’s not directly Michigan-related.

Two, it doesn’t affect me personally or anyone that I know (and I know quite a few people who fall into the category the race-hustlers are trying to round up on their side).

Three, I’m actually amused at the time spent distracting focusing attention away from real issues like disintegrating family structures, a education system whose outcome is criminal, cities which have devolved into war zones, the job situation (just to name a few), which are the direct result of actions taken by democrats (See: Cloward-Piven).

But someone sent me this video, and it…well check it out for yourself regarding one Kid Rock, a do-nothing group of “community organizers” (isn’t that a redundant description), their respective list of accomplishments…and the Confederate Battle Flag.

Yes, the content is “safe for work”.

    "which are the direct result of actions taken by democrats"

    Bull.

    That Curry-sh!tting governor broad of South Carolina, is just as bad as the Democrats you point your finger at.

      That's a fair assertion, one which I should've made just a little more clearer.

      My post WAS NOT a defense of Nikki Haley nor the spineless members of the S.C. Legislature (by any means). Even listening to the floor arguments on C-Span radio made my brain hurt earlier this week due to the bad over-acting and eagerness to back down from a challenge. Especially a weak one made by protestors calling for the removal of a flag first put in (formerly current) place in S.C. by a democrat of all people!

      The unfamiliarity democrats have with their own history (and not just with a flag) is really sad.

      The NAN-Detroit protest this week was more of an attack on a group of rabble rousers (led by ex-con Sam Riddle), who fancy themselves as "community organizers", who couldn't organize a thought, much less address the pressing problems facing a major city under their watch like Detroit.

      Adding to their problems:

      Kid Rock has been using that flag on tour since about '02 or '03 beginning with his Southern Rock tour. Why was there nothing from NAN before this week if this is really such a problem?

      Good luck finding any Confederate Flags in the Kid Rock exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum as there aren't any. I know that because I've been there.

      There may have been a flag in another part of the museum on the second floor, but that had to do with the Underground Railroad, and had absolutely nothing to do at all with Kid Rock.

      I should add that the link was sent to me from a co-worker who lives outside of Michigan.

    Should've read: The NAN-Detroit protest this week was more of an attack by a group of rabble rousers

    I, for one am grateful that the racism issue has been put to rest and look forward to the abortion issue flag burning and the gay rights flag removed from our poles.

    Odd how the folks who think "If you don't like abortion, don't get one!" is wisdom have no use for "If you don't like the confederate flag, don't fly it." Of course, conservatives never bothered making that argument, but just skittered away apologizing for the "racism" of it all.
