General JC Christian of Jesus' General posted one of his practically trademarked sarcastic ideas: burning Confederate flags on "that most holy of Teabagging days, September 12:"
It's a symbol for all we hold dear: the right of a state to allow men to own other men, the right to apportion water fountains according to skin tone, the right to spread the word that being darkly hued is an act of subversion, and the right to point out that Obama is an African, just like all those black people.
He has set up a Burn the Confederate Flag Day website for the desecration of the traitors' symbol:
You already know what I think of the Confederate swastika, and I'd love to see some of those symbols of institutional bigotry going up in smoke at a Teabagger rally:
TPM picked up the story, writing that General JC Christian "hopes that progressives across the country will show up to tea party rallies on September 12 and -- if it's legal -- light up a confederate flag so tea partiers can watch it burn:
"I think that it would start a great conversation about race and about how it's being used for political gain right now," the blogger, who preferred to be identified by his online handle, "General J.C. Christian," told me Monday. "I can imagine people showing up at the tea parties, which I'll do at my local one, and the tea party backers will start explaining why [the flag] is about state's rights, not slavery, and all that and basically hang themselves."
At least they'll only be (metaphorically) hanging themselves, rather than (literally) hanging the victims of their wrath...
