“Rick Perlstein is the national correspondent of The Washington Spectator, on whose site this article first appeared. This piece was updated by the Spectator on August 13 to remove the word “racist” from the headline, and has been similarly adjusted here. An apology from the author and a response from Spectator editor Lou Dubose were also appended to the original article and have been replicated here at the bottom of the piece…
You know that racist flag? The one that supposedly honors history but actually spreads a pernicious myth? And is useful only to venal right-wing politicians who wish to exploit hatred by calling it heritage? It’s past time to pull it down“
Meet Rick Perlstein, The Face of the Man Who thinks the POW Flag is RACIST and should be taken down:

The high decorated combat veter…..I mean obscure liberal “journalist” goes on with his subject matter expertise:
“Oh, wait. You thought I was referring to the Confederate flag. Actually, I’m talking about the POW/MIA flag.
[gifSource1-2] I told the story in the first chapter of my 2014 book The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan: how Richard Nixon invented the cult of the ‘POW/MIA’ in order to justify the carnage in Vietnam in a way that rendered the United States as its sole victim.”
The rest of the deranged libtardian article goes on spewing vitriole and contempt for the Vietnam war and manifests that hatred into the Vietnam veterans and specifically the POW’s. This highlights the latent mainstream liberal contempt for our troops who sacrifice everything that become subjugated to the whims of political leaders who they themselves often elect. It’s a shame that opinions so hurtful towards our most honorable men and women of our nation have to be judged by men like Pearlstein who have never served one day sacrificing for their nation.

“Remember kids, if it’s American, it has to be racist in some way, right? The left must find a racist/sexist/bigoted/homophobic/transphobic slant somehow, even if they have to pull it out of their butts. Because history and truth? Nah, stuff like that isn’t so important to the left. Just as long as it fits their narrative.”
Next up on their racism list: the American flag. Since…why not?

Perlstein did add an apology caveat to his article after the heat came righteously thundering down on him from outraged combat veterans and patriots. But does it matter? Is it legit? Why apologize for what you clearly were convicted of? Every once in a while the left tends to slip up and fill you in to their deepest darkest beliefs they try their best to keep hidden under the surface. But their agendas have been exposed, they are not tactical enough. They want to radically transform the entirety of American society and culture and We the People are the enemy! –AMERICAN GODFATHER
