The headline on Breitbart:
The article paints the victim in a sympathetic light, as if the Stars and Bars isn’t provocation.
The junior, Jacob Green, told Fox News: “I’ve done nothing wrong. I’ve flown that flag on my truck. Somebody fought me because of it. I didn’t fight him.” …
Green contends that that flag stands for “more independence” from government. He said those who flew that flag during the Civil War were fighting to be free from an overreaching central government.
Fighting to be free to own slaves, to be exact.
I’m not saying Jacob deserved to be beaten up, though there are consequences to ignorance. Blame his parents, who, according to the article, “are thinking about pursuing hate crime charges against the student who allegedly attacked their son.”
Score one for the white victim class.
Judging by the comments on Breitbart, the Confederate-loving dunces have plenty of enablers.
