ABC’s liberal talk show The View has a selection of far-Left hosts, like Joy Behar for instance.
Another one is Sunny Hostin.
She’s now decided that the American flag, one of our national symbols, is itself a symbol of white supremacy.
This repeats the argument of the unhinged NY Times journalist Mara Gay, who was the subject of Hostin’s segment on The View.
Her comments on the topic were a complete word salad, empty of substance.
Whoopi Goldberg said, “So for many the flag has been a symbol of freedom. Has it taken another meaning, Sunny?”
Hostin said, “Yes, it has. I’m so surprised actually that she is receiving this kind of backlash. As Meghan mentioned during the last segment, when someone of color, a Black woman is telling you her feelings, people need to listen and not, you know, repudiate it. Not say, well, that can’t be true. Because you have in many respects the former disgraced, twice impeached, one-term president to thank for politicizing the American flag.”Breitbart News
So if you’re a black woman, then your opinions can’t be rejected, and Donald Trump is to blame for making people think our flag is a white supremacist symbol…
Sounds about right for a liberal.
None of what she says here makes any sense.
If you want to hear it for yourself, you can watch her say it here.
It’s our right to disagree with whoever we like.
That’s why we have the 1st Amendment.
And our flag covers every American citizen, so nobody can politicize it in the first place.
If you’re an American, that’s your flag.
Her wild rant went on.
She continued, “Remember, on January 6th, just a few months ago, you had the Capitol rioters tearing down the flag and replacing it with the Trump flag. You had them beating the police officers with the American flag. That’s what was going on just on January 6th. It is their country, not our country. I remember very well there was a Confederate flag being flown around in the United States Capitol. I also remember very well recently, when I was with my children in North Carolina in the outer banks with people in pick-up trucks with Confederate flags flying alongside the U.S. flag. That scared me. The same message was there. You don’t belong here. We belong here. I was afraid of that.”Breitbart News
Again, there’s nothing rational about any of this.
She’s imagining what other people’s opinions are and assuming they must be thinking about her in a negative way.
That sounds like paranoia.
Most people are just going about their day-to-day lives.
Yet liberals see racism whenever a white person shares a conservative opinion.
That’s their problem, and nobody else’s.
She seems to understand her message won’t be popular, because she literally demands people listen to her.
Hostin added, “So, yes, when I drive into a neighborhood and it’s not July 4th and I’m not in a predominantly military household neighborhood and there are flags, American flags, everywhere, alongside Trump flags, alongside flags with stars in a circle, I feel threatened. The message is very clear. It’s a message of white supremacy. It’s a message of racism and it’s a message of their country, not my country. I don’t understand why that would receive backlash. People need to listen when I am saying this is how I feel. This is my experience in this country.”Breitbart News
Demanding that people respect your opinion isn’t going to make it any more popular, and it’s certainly not a good way of convincing them of your point of view.
How unfulfilling must your life be if you’re spending your time complaining about the American flag…
