Then They Came To Tear Down The MIA/POW Flag…

Some repulsive communist-sympathising creep named Rick Perlstein has now oozed up, demanding another famous flag be dragged down from American public buildings. because it’s ‘RACIST,’ of course.

But this time it’s not a banner honoured only in one part of the USA, like the beautiful Stars and Bars, but..guess what?


  • Yes, the flag flown all over the country to show that the heroes who fought evil in Vietnam but didn’t make it home are not forgotten.

One would think that even a slimy red would shrink from this kind of garbage – unless he simply likes cheap publicity by taking cheap shots at honourable symbols.

  • But a touch of rational argument always helps, and how the flag in our photo can in any sense be construed as racist is just baffling.

Except to a lousy leftist.

Happily, Americans who understand their history, and who know that a war lost can still have been fought in a noble cause, have already fired back, and I found this excellent rebuttal in PJ Media.

The whole piece is first-rate but here’s a taster.

.Perlstein hates that people don’t remember the Vietnam War the way he wants it remembered, as a racist, unlawful enterprise. The POW/MIA flag is merely a pretext for him to repeat the tired arguments of the 1970s, arguments that lost their sting when the NVA finally triumphed, and the world watched a Communist dictatorship work its vengeance on the South Vietnamese population….

  • communism tyranny
  • The left history of the Vietnam War has long been discredited, not least by the refusal of the nasty marxist oligarchy in Hanoi to release the people from their long nightmare, no free elections, no free press, no free speech, no free labour unions, no freedom of religion…etc.
  • ============================================================================
  • Until that day when freedom returns to Saigon, and the truth about the missing men is uncovered, the flag should fly.

Let scum like Perlstein festoon themselves with red flags as they please.
