    Holy fuck I feel sick. This has got to be one of the most idiotic, disrespectful things I have ever read.

    I feel like I just watched a season two episode of True Detective. That article just confused the hell out of me. Why is the flag racist?

    It's Newsweek. They're as relevant in 2015 as Quiet Riot.

    Is this the same Rick Perlstein accused of plagiarism in a book he wrote?
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    The article would be relevant in 1969, not almost 40 years later.

    You think Nixon was an asshole? Newsflash: everyone thinks Nixon is an asshole. Thanks for the hot take.

    Dumb ass.

    ....a bad writer, too. I never found an explanation why in their. Probably should've led with that before the history lesson.

    I wish I could say this shocks me, but it really doesn't. Revisionist history is the flavor of the day I'm afraid. It's the M.O. of most of these left wing idiots who are bent on theorizing that we must erase all traces of our "uncivilized past", in favor of only recognizing modern progressive, enlightened ideals.
    To call the flag racist is completely fucked, and his assessment of its meaning is so far off the mark. I have never met one person who ever associated the flag with racism.....Ever, and I happen to know a lot of Vietnamese people....Many of whom's families had immigrated to the States after the war, and have spread up to Canada!

    It's a complete joke! These are the same assholes that want the constitution rewritten/amended to suite current societal, and politically correct trends.

    This guy really doesn't get it at all. For the record, progressives in Japan tried to pull this kind of shit by eliminating historical events from school library books regarding Japan's ideology, and actions up to and during the second world war.

    It took some brave soles in Government to trounce these idiots, and acknowledge their role, and effect on the world during that period.
    To sanitize history to suite the politically correct left's mindset is unbelievably wrong on so many levels....The fact this story made it to print is such a sad commentary on North American society in general.

    That writer is a moron. The POW/MIA flag means that those captured in combat will not be forgotten. John McCain was a POW for 5+ years. But the U.S. Still fought for his return during the Vietnam war. There is an agency in Honolulu called DPAA that still works to locate and identify remains of military members killed in action.

    That's a great point and really defeats the thrust of this guy's argument. He's saying Nixon put it up to make the Vietnamese look bad and to build up the racist hate for them. The obvious point the writer seems to forget is that we were supporting people of the same race, but from a clearly different ideology. That by definition isn't racism.

    Yeah. I mean a couple guys I know....One, both his parents were from the North, and another guy, his Mother was, and they did NOT support what their Government was doing at all, and neither did their families or friends, but no one dared to utter their disapproval for risk of harm or imprisonment....The same fear North Koreans still have today! They told their children of the atrocities their government did, as well as the fear they had of the Americans, but it was war! They understood and of course feared all ramifications of it....and it was an ugly dirty war where any person weather they looked like civillians or not could be a potential threat.

    In some of these countries, the reality is they may all have looked like one collective machine of one mind, but you're talking about countries where free thought was (or in some cases still is)
    punishable by imprisonment, torture, or death. A good incentive to look like you're diggin' the Kool-Aid!

    Yeah...Racist. Sure. That's why they couldn't wait to get to the States or any other democracy away from a socialist regime the first opportunity that was presented to them.
    I'm sure they all shed a collective tear at the very sight of that "despicable symbol of American Hatred"! I heard another commentator mention this morning taking sides with this idiot! I'm guessing not. Most level headed people see it for what it is: A symbol of honoring our fighting men and women...and that they will never be forgotten. Nothing more.

    It's lunacy.

    Now lets get back to the serious PC issues like the ongoing Santa's Pipe promoting smoking debate, or Minions being disrespectful to Jews.
