Cleansing the South
Todd Starnes writes, "The cultural cleansing of the Southern states has meant the eradication of untold numbers of Southern traditions and icons in the name of tolerance and diversity." . . . [People have] "rationalized the cultural cleansing by explaining that the icons were offensive. Somebody forgot to tell them the Constitution of these great United States does not guarantee you the right to freedom from offense. . . . Mark my words; the Left's cultural crusade will not stop with the Confederate flag. They will use the perception of racism and hatred to whitewash history and silence dissent. One day - very soon - I predict they will come after another flag, the one with broad stripes and bright stars. After all, it probably makes some Americans feel 'unsafe." What a troubling time in America.' "
