Earlier in the week, multiple Democrats defended far-left claims against the Betsy Ross flag, after athlete-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick declared the Revolutionary War-era flag to be a “racist” symbol.
The suggestion ignite a firestorm of debate, and served to further divide Americans at our most important national holiday, the celebration of our independence.
Interestingly, however, many astute social media users quickly pointed out that the left’s collective outrage was noticeably absent when the Betsy Ross flag was displayed during former President Barack Obama’s inauguration.
Democrats running for president have officially lost it.
Beto & Castro strongly imply that the Betsy Ross flag is a symbol of hatred. Do the rest of the Dems agree?

The revelation that the flag was featured during Obama’s inauguration without stirring controversy prompted conservatives share their thoughts on the issue, with many chalking the incident up to little more than a political stunt.
The Democrats have gone stone cold crazy! They continually blame President Trump and other Republicans for things they, in the past, have been in favor of and have done themselves. Shameful that so many are so “mixed up” !!

Because it’s got zero to do with the flag!! It’s yet another BS talking point talker for noise!!!

I used to always vote democrat until Donald Trump ran for office. I realized how hypocritical the Democrats have become and they will continue to bury the truth as to what is best for this country and will only resist for political al purposes.

Like I’ve said before. Democrat’s moto is do as I say, not as I do.

You do realize the left works in small steps. Today it’s the Betsy Ross flag. Then it will be old glory. Our national flag will become a symbol of hate. This is an overthrow of our government. This is sedition. We must rebel against it.

On the eve of July 4th no less. This might be the moment the Democrat party “Jumped the Shark.”
