As I watched on TV that day live, the storming of our Capitol building in Washington D.C., I was struck by how many different flags and banners there were.
Besides the Confederate flags and the Gun Rights flags……wait gun rights? Do we still have that in this country? Seriously? How many more people must die before we change this?
You want to protect your home? Ok. You want to go hunting? Sure. But you don’t need an assault rifle, and you never have.
Now, back to January 6th, The analysis of the flags revealed SIX different white supremacist groups were there that day……SIX groups of people. Did you know that?
One of the flags was Nazi. You remember the Nazis. We fought against them in World War II. Millions upon millions of people died around the world because of them.
There were no Antifa at the riot. That’s another right wing extremist lie, proven to be false by our own FBI. What is Antifa? A group of people, an organization that are ANTI-facist.
You remember the facists, we fought against them in World War II. Millions upon millions of people died around the world because of them.
I’m not extreme in any way, in fact I call myself a moderate now, but I would rather have a cup of coffee and a danish with an Antifa person, than a right wing extremist any day. Hands down, not even close.
My flag is the United States of America.
P.S. By the way if you want to confront Asian hate you need to stop the extremists on the right. It’s always been that way, and always will be.
