Confederate Flag Popularity Angers Leftists…

Leftists love to use polls and surveys to advance their agendas through the media but what happens when the polls and surveys results aren’t what they’re hoping for? The Leftists get angry.

Take, for example, Jonathan Capehart, who has an article published in today’s Washington Post.Com blog . The subject  a recent poll asking about Confederate flags on clothing and Rainbow flags on clothing.

According to Capehart:

A Quinnipiac poll released last week asked three questions about teenagers wearing the Confederate flag and the gay-pride rainbow flag to school that struck me curious. But it was the responses that blew my mind. A symbol of hate is viewed as a more favorable apparel choice for teens than one of inclusion.

Q3 Do you think high school students should be
allowed to wear confederate flags to school, or
not?
Think they should…………………………………….43%
Think they should not……………………………….37%
Not sure…………………………………………………..19%

Q4 Do you think high school students should be
allowed to wear gay pride flags to school, or
not?

Think they should…………………………………….28%
Think they should not……………………………….57%
Not sure ………………………………………………….15%

Q5 Do you think it’s more appropriate for high
school students to wear gay pride flags or
confederate flags to school?
Gay pride flags…………………………………………..9%
Confederate flags ………………………………………38%
Not sure …………………………………………………..52%

Capehart was so angered by the poll results that he entitled his article “A Confederacy of dunces against gay pride flag”.  Wow.

First of all who is to say that the Confederate battle flag is not a sign of inclusion? The media doesn’t like it, therefore the media believes it should not be shown…EVER.

Are Gays not a minority in society? Hint: The answer is yes. Therefore it stands to reason that only a minority of those surveyed would say that they approve of Gay Pride flag clothing worn in High School.

Are Heterosexual Whites still the majority of the population? Yes, for a while longer anyway, therefore it stands to reason that the majority of those surveyed would more closely identify with the Confederate flag. It’s just that simple.

Personally I believe in Freedom of Speech,  so why shouldn’t people be allowed to choose the clothing and symbols that reflect who they are?

It turns out tolerance is not a quality that is easily found in those who are vocal advocates for it.
