In the wake of Dylann Roof’s shooting spree in Charleston, the Mainstream Media, which is never content to let a crisis go to waste, seized on a national tragedy to launch a disgusting, opportunistic campaign of cultural genocide to demonize the Confederate Battle Flag and eradicate Confederate monuments in the public space across the Southern states.

The latest polls on the Confederate Battle Flag reflect the deep and justified distrust of the leftwing mainsteam media which retains the confidence of only 1/5 to 1/4 of Americans:

“Washington (CNN) American public opinion on the Confederate flag remains about where it was 15 years ago, with most describing the flag as a symbol of Southern pride more than one of racism, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. And questions about how far to go to remove references to the Confederacy from public life prompt broad racial divides.

The poll shows that 57% of Americans see the flag more as a symbol of Southern pride than as a symbol of racism, about the same as in 2000 when 59% said they viewed it as a symbol of pride. Opinions of the flag are sharply divided by race, and among whites, views are split by education. …”

After pouring all that effort into their insane campaign to ban everything from The Dukes of Hazzard to Gone With The Wind to Aunt Jemima’s Syrup to Uncle Ben’s Rice, the American public has had enough of this charade and remains unconvinced that what happened in Charleston had anything to do with the Confederate Battle Flag.

The American public undoubtedly remembers that the leftwing mainstream media blamed Sandy Hook on the Second Amendment, Hurricane Katrina on “global climate change,” and the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson on bloodthirsty, cold blooded, racist police officers with nothing better to do than to shoot poor, innocent black men with their hands raised up in an act of surrender.

In particular, White Southerners are not buying this outrageous attack on our heritage and are organizing pro-Confederate Battle Flags in every Southern state to show our contempt for leftwing media bias.
