Obama Celebrates Removal Of Confederate Flag

As officials removed the Confederate flag from the statehouse in Columbia, South Carolina, Barack Obama personally praised the event on Twitter.

“South Carolina taking down the confederate flag – a signal of good will and healing, and a meaningful step towards a better future,” he wrote.

In a short, yet monumental ceremony this morning, the Confederate flag was lowered as some in the crowd shouted U-S-A! U-S-A! and sang “Na na na na, hey hey-hey, goodbye!”

White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett also weighed in on Twitter.

“A historic day for #SouthCarolina and the #UnitedStates as we officially #TakeItDown,” she wrote, citing Obama’s note.

Breitbart reported that Obama discussed his feelings about the flag at lengthy during a eulogy for Reverend Clementa Pinckney, one of the nine victims of a racist shooting in a Charleston church.

“For too long, we were blind to the pain that the Confederate flag stirred in too many of our citizens,” he said, insisting that Americans had to acknowledge that it represented not only ancestral pride but “systemic oppression and racial subjugation.”

“Removing the flag from this state’s capitol would not be an act of political correctness; it would not be an insult to the valor of Confederate soldiers. It would simply be an acknowledgment that the cause for which they fought — the cause of slavery — was wrong,” he added, before concluding, “By taking down that flag, we express God’s grace.”

This day will forever be remembered, but not for the great deed that Obama claims, but rather, for the day Obama decimated an important part of American history.

    He has obviously learned well from his ISIS Rent boys. Will he order the blowing up of the Lincoln and Washington monuments as his next step? Mabe bulldozing Arlington? Scrapping USS Arizona?

    The Divider in Chief, Hussein Obama at it again being divisive. The American version of ISIS, Al qaeda and the Taliban are all those FOOLS calling for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from a Confederate war memorial and everywhere else. There will be a call to remove Confederate monuments and statues, the American flag, slave holders monuments and statues like Washington and Jefferson, street names and names of forts for anyone connected to the Confederacy or slavery. And now they have gone so far as to digging up the graves of Confederate soldiers. Since they are intent on trying to remove anything to do with the Confederacy or slavery, thus revising history, which Mark Levin calls a modern day book burning, what happens then? If everything relating to the Confederacy, slavery or Jim Crow is eliminated then who would know? I say let’s go all the way revising history and claim there was no slavery or Jim Crow in America. It never happened. Now what?
    The left are never satisfied. They will continue to do and want more. If whatever it is OFFENDS a person, have that person relate to why it offends them and use it as a teachable moment, instead of destroying it. As I said, ISIS, Al qaeda,and the Taliban are known for destroying artifacts. Let’s not follow in their footsteps.

    It is quite interesting, racists are having a problem with the removal of said flag.

    Why?

    Because their bastion of racism and discrimination has been effectively removed?
    Because their horrifying congregation image has been dutifully removed?

    Or is it the fact they have warped American history so badly that they actually are no longer capable of ascertaining what is real and what is true.

    Many of the closet racists who have launched in to abusive tirades against my research, derived from thoroughly vetted peer reviews and learned references, have not been able to quantify any lucid arguments that are based on factual data.

    They (southern deniers and closet racists) identify very abstract diplomatic endeavors and then hyper-accentuate these attempts at avoiding war. Which actually accentuates the futility of their lackluster arguments.

    They also isolate verbiage utilized in documents which were criminal in nature (i.e., honorably declaring our severance from a torn relationship). Anyone with half an ounce of understanding the sequence of events in American history can easily understand that by signing the Declaration of Independence they were essentially signing their own death warrant. (Our Declaration of Independence was not an invitation to a birthday party. Under the context and relationship we had with Great Britain – it was illegal, i.e., criminal.)

    With that being said, the next document created that was actually codified was our US Constitution. Within OUR US Constitution our perfect Founding Father’s, at no point, nada, nothing, remotely cites a desire to allow a destruction of our, “more perfect union.” This dubious contrivance by southern deniers/closet racists is utterly obtuse, virulent, and beguiling.

    In essence, southern deniers/closet racists have a Pavlovian response that automatically incites an aggressive and violent emotional verbal response. In other words, when confronted by factual data southern deniers/closet racists shutdown at their core deductive reasoning level leaving a primal and antisocial automaton.
    ==================================================

    The “flag” unequivocally symbolizes racism, treason, criminal conduct, and crimes against humanity.

    It has continuously symbolized racism and violence against Black Americans since the creation of the KKK in 1866.

    In fact, as was written by a South Carolina newspaper:

    “the hell-born policy which has trampled the fairest and noblest States of our great sisterhood beneath the unholy hoofs of African savages and shoulder strapped brigands [US Army officers] – the policy which has given up millions of our free-born, high-souled brethren and sisters – to the rule of gibbering, louse-eating, devil-worshipping, barbarians, from the jungles of Dahomey [west Africa], and peripatetic buccaneers from Cape Cod, Memphremagog [Vermont], Hell, and Boston.”

    The KKK and this “flag” symbolized and was utilized to terrorize Black Americans for over a century. This “flag” helped terrorize thousands and thousands of people throughout the United States.

    Racists, carrying this “flag”, dragged people out of their homes:
    – Elias Hill
    – Samuel Simrell
    – Miles Barron
    – Jim Williams
    – Senator Benjamin Franklin Randolph
    – Senator Solomon Washington

    All tortured, murdered (gunned down) by KKK scum carrying this “flag”. (just to name a few decent Americans murdered by racist scum carrying that “flag”).

    NOTE: The bulk of KKK membership was made up of confederate soldiers.

    People carrying this “flag” were so violent that President Ulysses S. Grant enacted the KKK Act of 1871.

    There was no “States rights” element of the secession. It was simply for “free labor” and the disgusting and unholy belief that Black Americans were not human.

    There is absolutely no provision in the U.S. Constitution for secession. This is a farce/fallacy fomented by the internet. No learned source exists that even remotely conveys this myopic idea. In fact, the only source of this contrivance is Wikipedia.

    The secession issue was utterly quashed in the US Supreme Court decision, Texas v White 74 U.S. 700 (1869). This court decision actually provided amnesty to Texas and it affirmed the non-existence of such a contrivance as secession.

    As an amusing point of reference, the US Constitution specifically cites, “……in Order to form a more perfect Union…..”. Why? Why, pray-tell would our “perfect” Founding Fathers create a MORE PERFECT UNION, only to give some group of myopic recalcitrant’s an option to destroy that MORE PERFECT UNION?

    That “flag” is a disgusting representation of racism, treason, criminal conduct, and crimes against humanity.

    That “flag” holds the exact same filth as the NSDAP flag that is illegal/outlawed in Germany.

    If there is a desire for history or historical reference then put it in a museum. Actively waving it, openly, is not history. That is a passive aggressive attempt to provoke and cause harm.

    Just because there are a few people who are misguided as to the true nature of that “flag” does not negate the unholy and disgustingly aggressive actions of the present KKK, Aryan Nation, White Aryan Resistance – not to mention the disgusting usage by Dylann Roof. By the way, the list can definitely go on and on regarding the insipidly racist individuals and groups who gleefully fly this “flag”.
    ===========================================================
    The “flag”, ergo its image is a blatant provocation and a direct attack towards those of ethnic diversity (for the purpose of this discussion – non-white).

    The rebel flag is a historical image and should certainly be allowed to be displayed in a museum or a family’s home given their affiliation to a former family member (ancestor) who fought with those units.

    But, what has been occurring over the past 150 years is a strikingly divergent mentality that is abusive, volatile, and violent towards non-whites. Racism will always be present. Racism will always be apart of our lives.

    And imagery will always be used to inflame those racist proclivities. In other words, individuals usually do not display violent emotions until they have a feeling of unity. In other words, a person standing still having thoughts of racist ideations is not easily discerned by those in close proximity.

    BUT, when that individual then augments those thoughts and ideations with an image (confederate flag) many, with those same thoughts and ideations, begin to realize they have “friends” with the same violent and racist proclivities.

    Imagery gives individuals a point to rally around.
    Everyone knows that a confederate flag is racist and everyone knows that those racist ideas and thoughts are protected by those States displaying this “flag” in the south.

    With that being said, racism is also conveyed in a book. Case in point, The Turner Diaries.

    Point of Reference: The Turner Diaries inspired Timothy McVeigh to conduct the terrorist attack in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

    But, a book is not an image that is used to rally around (yes, I know, there are a few books that deviate from this postulation). With that being said, I am not sure why you would proffer the idea of banning a book.

    In fact, regarding books, are you aware that J.D. Salinger’s book, Catcher in the Rye, inspired John Hinckley Jr. and Mark David Chapman to shoot President Reagan and John Lennon. With that being said, J.D. Salinger’s books are wonderful. Again, why postulate banning a book.

    The ignorant of today point their finger and cry racist the same as the ignorant of the 17th century pointed their fingers and cried Witch. History will look back on this time as another time of Mass Hysteria.

    It appears that Obama will “celebrate” ANYTHING that upsets the American people and create upheaval! The Confederate flag has NEVER represented “slavery” to me and I grew-up in Georgia. Rather, it represented an era of history in America — a time not unlike our present time — a time of disagreement, unrest, and fear, however, people willing to stand-up and fight for what they thought was right!

    When they Remove of all Confederate memorials then then the blacks are going to erect all racist memorials. Does that sound fair? How do we stop the racist movement? – See more at: http://truthuncensore.wpengine.com/obama-celebrates-removal-of-confederate-flag/#comment-112137
