It’s official. South Carolina is removing the Confederate Battle Flag from the State House grounds.
I know it’s been pretty contentious, but I think I found an alternative symbol of even deeper Southern heritage and culture.
It’s the only thing that makes sense. The original 1606 Union Jack, still in use at the the time of the Revolutionary War, would be perfect if we’re using the same logic.
“What’s the logic?” you ask. It’s painstaking, I know, but I figured the original colonizers, from whom we got our language, and who also lost a war to control this land and who also owned slaves, just like the Confederate States of America, should be honored. After all, not even half of Americans even supported the Revolution in the first place.
