The war of extermination against all things explicitly Southern is no longer in the headlines — yet it continues:
A teacher who displayed the Confederate flag to middle schoolers in his history class was forced to retire amid concerns that he was displaying a symbol of hate.
70-year-old Sutter Middle School (Folsom, CA) teacher Woody Hart hanged both a Confederate flag and a Union flag during his lesson on the Civil War.
The guy was just trying to teach a history class. But context doesn’t matter when it comes to “symbols of hate”:
“We recognize that regardless of context, to many of our students, families, and staff, the Confederate flag is a racist symbol of hate,” [a statement by the Folsom Cordova Unified School District] reads.
Common sense dictates that no one can teach history without touching on unpleasant subjects, symbols, incidents, and historical periods. But, it would seem that the Left prefers students to be offended, and ignorant, not to mention hypersensitized, than to be educated. I would remind everyone that this type of historical Stalinism can be applied, and will increasingly applied to another flag very soon. Yes, the United States flag is as guilty of everything the Confederate flag is guilty of. So, it is simply a matter of time until, well, that United States flag must be banned, lest we offend someone.
Yes, that time is coming. This is, after all, the Age of the Snowflakes is it not? This the age of silencing any speech, or history, or even discussions or debates that might offend a precious snowflake.
