Well it’s pretty clear by now that nothing and no one is safe from the hippie hatred of 2015. They appear to have reached another new low, as one of their leaders, Newsweek columnist and renowned hippie, Rick Perlstein has most recently directed his hatred at the American soldiers that served in the Vietnam War.
Perlstein has emphatically demanded that all of the POW/MIA (representing American soldiers that were Prisoners Of War or Missing In Action) flags be taken down in the US, claiming they are all offensive and racist. In his extremely hate-filled article in Newsweek, Perlstein rants uncontrollably about what the flag “really” means and what it represents in his disturbed mind.
Funny, during Perlstein’s entire vicious rant, he rarely mentions any actual Prisoners of War or credits or even speaks of any American soldiers themselves, but did manage to throw in a dig against Donald Trump.
The article begins with this paragraph –
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.
Oh, wait. You thought I was referring to the Confederate flag. Actually, I’m talking about the POW/MIA flag.
It really only gets more offensive from there. I shudder to think what an American Vietnam vet or even worse, a former POW would say after reading this Newsweek piece and subsequently meeting Perlstein face to face.
If the hippies keep having their way this year, by 2016 there will be no flags of any kind left.
