It must have some kind of deep racist meaning, I'm going to have to stop typing on this white background with black letters. I drink my coffee.... Black
I am going to have to get some counseling for my behavior and change it immediately.

I don't know about the Gadsden flag... but that Nissan is probably racist.

So the liberals are offended by the Gadsden flag because it was created by a slave-owning white guy?

I guess that explains why they hate the Constitution so much.

I don't understand their hatred for Black Rifles though, seems kinda hypocritical to me. :biggrinjester:

In this day of politically correct, left wing, liberal sissies, something is going to be racist to everybody. Let's just accept the fact that we are ALL racists and get over it.

Amen! People need to stop looking for things to be offended by. Life is too short to waste time on stupidity.

Just as a firearm does not murder people, a flag cannot be racist. The people flying the flag may or may not be, they will need to ask them individually.

In the new world order of the perpetually offended (the "PO"), everything is offensive if they say so. Common sense and critical thinking are not allowed when you join the PO, the only requirement is the suspense of reality.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Oldgringo,

C'mon, only white people can be racist.

Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the entire black lies matter group et al. are not only not racist, but saintly.

Re: Gadsden flag
At the time it was invented, the parties on both sides of the conflict were what would be considered 'white' so probably not racist. I'm sure the intent WAS for it to be offensive to the Brits......

And speaking as someone who identifies historically as 'irish', I want reparations from Britain for the Potato Famine of 1850. "rlol"
And I'm still waiting for Obama to apologize for that "No Irish need apply" stuff from the following 50 years. :totap:

The left gets all aquiver when they see the Confederate Battle Flag, but have no gripe when it comes to the Hammer & Sickle.
