But yes...believe it or not, Hankerson implies the first confederacy led to the second:
Swastika bolsters the case?
Hankerson continues with his argument that Confederate flag wavers aren't bigots and racists:
To recap Hankerson's position: The Southern states and Iroquois tribes both called themselves the Confederacy. The Confederate flag is just like the Nazi flag, which is harmless because it's really an Indian flag. Therefore, the Confederacy didn't fight a war to preserve its inhuman institution of slavery. It didn't treat African Americans the same way Nazis treated Jews: like chattel. The Confederate flag is a symbol of Southern pride, not Southern racism and white supremacy.
Wow. How pathetically bad can you get? This is the weakest argument I've heard in a long time.
Below: The Confederate, Nazi, and Iroquois flags. Three symbols of pride and heritage. Three peas in a pod.
