Rebels contra Americam

The Confederate flag is in the news a lot lately. Regardless of whether or not you think it's a racist symbol, undeniably it is a symbol of rebellion against these US of A. By definition. So it's never made much sense to me to see the Southern Cross flown at July Fourth parties, as if it is a patriotic symbol.

Really, though, does it matter? The fight over the flag is a diversion. In the absence of a real enemy, or when we are afraid to face the real enemy, we must create phantom enemies. For both sides of the debate, the opposition are nothing more than such a phantom enemy.
