Waving The Unbloody White Flag

22 July 2014 @ 11:54

From DNAinfo New York, Murray Weiss reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Drudge]:

MANHATTAN — American flags were removed from atop the Brooklyn Bridge’s two towers Tuesday morning and replaced by white flags, sources said.

Police, including the NYPD‘s counter terrorism and intelligence divisions, were checking surveillance footage from the bridge after images of the white flags hit social media about 7 a.m., sources said.

“Why are there white flags on top of the Brooklyn Bridge?” City Council member Mark Weprin tweeted at 9:34 a.m.

It was not immediately clear how the white flags, which are usually a military symbol for surrender, got there.

Who cares?

Even if the person or group who put the flags up there are Leftists, it’s the symbolic significance that matters…and that is dead solid perfect.

In all areas, foreign and domestic, America has surrendered to the Totalitarians, be they coffee-house philosophers or pedophile cultists who worship a moon god.

Now, if it had been me, I would have merely taken the existing Stars And Stripes and rehung them upside down [a sign of Distress]…but, you know, now that I think of it, the White Flag Of Surrender is much more appropriate because The United States Of America is no more.

Thus, they voluntarily and ignominiously surrendered their own liberty, and exchanged a free constitution for a TYRANNY!

—Samuel Adams, writing as ‘CANDIDUS’ in the Boston Gazette, 14 October 1771

But remember my countrymen, it will be better to have your liberties wrested from you by force, than to have it said that you even implicitly surrendered them.

—Samuel Adams, writing as ‘CANDIDUS’ in the Boston Gazette, 23 December 1771

    The replacement flags appeared to be bleached-white American flags, with stars and stripes still faintly visible, according to the Detroit Free Press. “

    Bob, I’d thought the first one didn’t post because WordPress didn’t like my login. Delete it if you wish. I didn’t worry about the moderation, I’m always pretty linky.

      And thank God for it.
