As I have written elsewhere, the arguments against the Betsy Ross flag can be applied just as easily to everything associated with the American Revolution. Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and many of the other of the early heroes of the Revolution were slave owners. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson, so it deserves the same condemnation you apply to the Betsy Ross flag. Why haven’t you denounced the Declaration of Independence? Why haven’t you attacked the Constitution, which had slavery written right into it? Why haven’t you demanded the elimination of the celebration of Washington’s Birthday? For that matter, why haven’t you condemned the Fourth of July celebrations for their glorification of a slave-holding society?

If you cannot be consistent, then I do not think you deserve credibility.
