Reenactments and museums are some of the places where historical flags do belong.
But it is an old story from july 2016.
It is a right wing website with a clear political agenda Making their version of events untrustworthy.
(very clear if one read the commends on their FB page)
and dam the stupidity in the commend section is bad... blaming the issue on Communism???
I agree with you, but this what happens when as a society decide that history that offends becomes off limits.
I don't see any evidence that our society, as a whole, has decided this. There are a few things I find objectionable in our society and would like to see them done away with, but darn it, it seems they're protected under the first amendment, so I guess I'll have to learn how to deal with them.
There are people within our society than find the flag objectionable, and I understand why, and I would sympathize with them if the flag was not used in it's correct historical setting. However, in this situation, I feel its fitting and proper that the flag be used.
It is more likely that reenactments die out first.I agree its totally appropriate to have the CBF at reenactments.
The point I was trying to make that once a society decides that something is objectionable that crosses into many domains, reenactments being one of them.
Also remember some folks post oldies from slow news days to wake folks up.I wonder what Rep. Brown believes the reenacters should be flying instead.
Waving your favorite pattern cloth at the end of a stick is a first amendment right, be it a dish towel or the CBF.
I will assure you that someone will be offended by the dish towel.
