The Confederate Flag has become the latest hot-button topic promulgated by a national press dedicated to a narrative dictated by intolerant tolerants. Well isn’t that special? No, it really isn’t church lady.
A savage barbarian walked into a church and murdered nine disciples of Jesus Christ on Wednesday, June 17th, 2015. They had gathered in the Name above all names in the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church located in Charleston, South Carolina when a hate-filled racist snuffed out their lives. What a way to go. I can only pray to be in a place like that when Father calls me home in lieu of some dope pad on Derby St. near 8 Mile And John R in the mean streets of Detroit.
Among those murdered was a state senator who was pastor of the church who’d just driven two hours from the state capitol to make the Bible Study. Clementa Pinckney, 41, was married with two children. Emanuel is the oldest AME church in the South and has one of the oldest and largest black congregations south of Baltimore, according to its website. Denmark Vesey, executed for attempting to organize a major slave rebellion in 1822, was one of the founders.
This unfathomable act of murder set off a reactive mushroom cloud encompassing the nation. To their credit, the citizens of Charleston didn’t seize on this hateful genocide as a pretext to riot. Choosing instead to gather in prayer was indeed the high road to take in Charleston and other churches across the land.
As has become a predictable response from the press, they chose the low road. No surprise there. Rather than focus on the core issues of justice, racism, and healing, the press has championed a boogeyman. Get rid of that goddamn Confederate Flag and all will be well. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss…this week’s bandwagon model. Jump in or else. Horrible grief and anger demands a boogeyman.

Any idiot is aware the Confederate Flag was co-opted by white supremacists hiding under white sheets to cover their 2″ members. It’s def a symbol of an oppressive ideology subjugating black brothers and sisters to the status of slaves. That would be on a good day. Other days, it’s displayed by meth smoking, toothless, peckawood rednecks–believing a symbol representing the “old south” will offer an elusive salvation. It’s also displayed by others without a racist bone in their bodies as a symbol of Southern Pride. Some rock n’ roll bands have displayed it as simply a symbol capturing the rebellious nature inherent in dangerous rock n’ roll.
This blog isn’t really about any of that.
Fascism masquerading as universal rights with a blatant narrative of political correctness is a bigger scourge than the Confederate Flag could ever be, which I really don’t give a shit about one way or the other. I do care about the current atmosphere created by self-described “Progressive Tolerants” who may have good motives, but wind up fueling the very thing they claim to loathe. Being all about inclusivity, diversity, and pansexuality is something cherished by tolerants…as long as nothing comes along challenging their myopic viewpoint.
Near-sighted vision never has room for real tolerance. Not really. In fact, man-defined tolerance absent of grace never reflects true inclusivity. This blog is about the press seizing an opportunity to manufacture yet another “hot button” issue in an attempt to determine the directional narrative everyone ought line up and goose-step with.
Self-differentiated lives molded by God’s hand are threatening enough to evoke oppositional dissonance disproportionate to the matter at hand. Disagreeing to the point of becoming the very thing they project onto others (particularly Christians) as hateful, bigoted, narrow minded, intolerant, racist jerk offs, sets up the potential for fascism.
For some, all that and more is in store for those who fly a flag, watch a certain news outlet, believe in a different faith, or don’t fall for jails, institutions and death masquerading as freedom. Those popular “Coexist” bumper stickers don’t really reflect reality as practiced by those who’d demand no one display the Confederate Flag. They want to only coexist with others they agree with. Anyone disagreeing with their warped value set is now branded a “hater” in a society gone mad.
At the end of the day, none of this has any real significance, so be of good cheer. All of this has been prophesied about years ago by folks gifted with a vision above and beyond the limitations of man.
1 Timothy 4:1 – Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Luke 21:36 – Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
