Did you know that the Confederate flag is the same thing as the rainbow LGBTQ pride flag? According to an idiot who appeared on Fox News Tuesday morning, the two are “the exact same thing.”
Conservative commentator Star Parker appeared on Fox & Friends to let the world know just how clueless she truly is. Parker was asked by co-host Steve Doocy what she thought about Nancy Pelosi’s comments that President Trump should fire senior adviser Steve Bannon:
“What do you think about [Pelosi], who made this statement yesterday: ‘It shouldn’t take the president of the United States two days to summon the basic decency to condemn murder and violence by Nazis and white supremacists.’”
“That is not what happened. Nancy Pelosi is exploiting an opportunity that they think will play to their side. On Saturday, there were two sides that were in an American city that were ― then it was escalating very rapidly. No, the question became then, well, do you denounce the one part of it?”
Next, Parker said that it’s ironic some people are offended by the Confederate flag:
“But you know what’s really interesting and really incredible irony here is the same people that are demanding that the Confederate flag comes down are the same people that are insisting that the rainbow flag goes up. These two flags represent the exact same thing. That certain people groups are not welcome here. So if Nancy Pelosi wants to say that we’re going to start shutting down First Amendment rights of a certain group of people, then what happens the next time that the homosexuals want to walk through an American city and protest and counter protesters come out?”
Those two flags represent the exact same thing? Let’s examine that, shall we? The Confederate flag represents slavery and white supremacy. The pride flag represents tolerance and acceptance. Yeah, totally the same thing.
No wonder conservatives sound so damn stupid when they talk; they’re really that damn stupid!
