Once again “political correctness” rather then historical facts and simple common sense, becomes House Speaker Paul Ryan’s personal goal by telling party members they’d better get used to “taking tough votes,” such as the one to ban the Confederate flag at historic cemeteries controlled by the federal government.

In a roll-call vote, the House voted 265 to 159 to block descendants of Confederate veterans from flying the historic banner over mass graves even on the days when flags have been permitted in the past.

Democrats hailed the move as a strike against “racism, slavery and division, as Ryan warned opponents that they are just going to have to “take it” when votes don’t go their way.

However both Ryan and the Democrats are being disingenuous, in continuing the false narrative of the Confederate Flag, by promoting this myth that the Confederate “Battle Flag” represents racism today.

Note the distinction that both Ryan and the Democrats purposely omit, the term “battle flag” which is the designated title of the flag.

And it’s important to note that the Confederate Battle Flag was simply just that, a battle flag. It was never a National flag, and as such has never flown over a slave nation or represented slavery or racism?

Obviously most critical thinking individuals can understand why those progressive loons in congress want to continue this myth, but what of House Speaker Paul Ryan, and why does he continue promoting a false narrative?
