Some people are complaining about the lack of American flags on display at the DNC. They are claiming it is a lack of patriotism.
That isn’t my flag. The American flag is for straight white males.
I am speaking someone who has faced discrimination all her life due to her gender and her sexual orientation. That flag might represent freedom to some, but for many of us it is a joke. I stopped saying the Pledge the minute I realized those freedoms only applied to white people and specifically to straight white males. I am proud that the DNC is liberal thinking enough to realize this.
This is by no means against soldiers or those defending our freedoms, but you are defending freedom itself, not the symbol of it. You are defending the freedom of straight, white males, but this is slowly changing. Just wish it would change faster. It won’t if conservative Republicans have anything to say about it.
