The weird thing is, it’s the man who posted this video on TikTok.

Yeah I somehow doubt he was the one who posted it there. I dunno this sounds fake. It’s not like Trumpers love that particular site

So when can we see this flag flying in the US?

Unlike the confederate flag this one is a legitimate flag of the United States, from before when they added the stars in 1777, and it is to be treated with the same laws and respect as any other US flag.

If he actually flew that monstrosity on a Civil War battlefield he’d get shot by both sides.

Even setting the racism aside, those two flags represent mutually exclusive ideas. Pick a team already.

My current favorite way of shutting down defenses of the confederate battle flag is to ask if they would fly that flag from their truck/car and drive through East Oakland. Usually everyone gets real quiet when considering that.

(Also note: I don’t want anyone doing that, because it’s a form of violence against the people who live there. I just want to have the person consider that act and what it would mean.)
