Twisted History

What the fuck happened in Oklahoma when the president showed up?

OKLAHOMA CITY — Confederate battle flags greeted President Barack Obama as he arrived here for an overnight stay on Wednesday.

Across the street from his hotel in downtown Oklahoma City, as many as 10 people waved the flags as his motorcade arrived. The group stood among a larger group of demonstrators, many of them there to support the president, who is in town ahead of a visit to a federal prison on Thursday as part of his weeklong push on criminal justice issues.

Wow, Oklahoma. That’s some fine citizenry you have there. I’m utterly gobsmacked.

OK. A couple of things:

#1: Oklahoma was Indian territory at the time of the Civil War.

#2: Barack Obama didn’t have a blessed thing to do with the fervor surrounding the confederate flag. Those were local decisions made at the behest of angry citizens.

It should be clear that this is some serious racist bullshit. But this story has a twist:

According to local news organizations, a man named Andrew Duncomb, who calls himself the “black rebel,” organized the Confederate flag demonstration. He also put together a similar protest on Saturday at the Oklahoma State Capitol — just a day after South Carolina removed its contested flag from the State Capitol grounds.

So one ignorant-ass oreo cookie organizes this shit and suddenly it isn’t racist. Yeah. Pull the other one. There is no reason to wave the southern rebel flag in Oklahoma other than to make a show of hate against a black figure in power, if you consider the bullet points above.

Or, perhaps you aren’t a fucking idiot and can figure out what this is for yourself.

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
