Arkansas (probably most of the South) illogical logic.

I was reading the letters in our state newspaper, the Arkansas Democratic Gazette, and find it amazing. Those who claim 'taking a knee' is disrespecting the flag and our military vets are the same people who decry removal of statutes and monuments of those who physically attacked the flag and killed US Army soldiers.

1. Amazing, confounding, and utterly inexcusable.

That's the worst, most galling part.of this. It's like the current lack of fear of heroin. These people have pushed their "political correctness" dog whistle to normalization of racism.

3. Confederate monuments across the street from LR High School

And then they wonder why those damn liberals accuse them of harboring a racist bias...

4. What it's really about is they don't think black people deserve rights

5. It all makes sense if you recognize that it's all about hating people of color.

The people who revere the Confederate battle flag and statues of Confederate generals do so for one reason alone. It's the same reason that they disapprove of protests of violence against black people.

It's not a contradiction if we recognize that these people are applauding violence against people of color.

6. When I am replying on social media.

I make a point to state that the person decrying NFL players taking a knee to express a view on social justice are also the people who demand that Nazis and KKK have a right to march down city streets. Their view is hypocritical and we need to be calling their asses out.
