The number of flags that the far left believes are racist and offensive continues to grow every day as the perma-offended finds a new target, this time it’s actor Chris Pratt. Pratt rustled some jimmies yesterday as a photo of him walking around with his wife triggered a few folks because of the shirt that he was wearing. Pratt wore the Gadsden Flag “Don’t tread on Me” shirt in American flag colors and some people didn’t know how to handle it.
The Gadsden flag was created by Christopher Gadsden, a Charleston-born brigadier general in the Continental Army. It came to prominence during the Revolutionary War of the US by colonists who wanted independence from Great Britain. The flag is very popular among Libertarians and some Conservative groups who view the symbol as a statement against big government. However, according to the left, it has also become a symbol of the dreaded “Far-right” (which is anyone who doesn’t believe Karl Marx was right in 2019).
Yahoo News in a post entitled Chris Pratt criticized for ‘white supremacist’ T-shirt features a small handful of tweets that nobody liked in order to show that some leftists aren’t happy about Pratt’s statement of…liberty?
But then, of course, more reasonable people had a much better take on the issue.
It’s stuff like this where people get the idea that the left hates America.
