Apparently they think that Tea Partiers are racist, and therefore are big fans of the Confederacy.
The event’s ringmaster giving his pitch, via the DC Trawler:
Well, I’m not going to stand for it. The flag means too much to me as both a Confederate-American and a teabagging patriot. It’s a symbol for all we hold dear: the right of a state to allow men to own other men, the right to apportion water fountains according to skin tone, the right to spread the word that being darkly hued is an act of subversion, and the right to point out that Obama is an African, just like all those black people.
I’ve put up a banner for a group that is holding a “Burn the Confederate Flag Day” on that most holy of Teabagging days, September 12. I’m going to keep it up, so you can join (website, Facebook) and hopefully disrupt the event.
Because behind the old people in lawn chairs singing “God Bless America” are really violent racists.
