Heritage hazard: Confederate flag on vintage car triggers SJWs and politicians

David MenziesMission Specialist

A classic car at the annual Highland Creek Heritage Festival in Toronto has triggered social justice warriors and Nervous-Nelly politicians after a hysterical woman freaked out over a Confederate flag-sporting General Lee replica.

Yes, Ybia Anderson was triggered by the Confederate flag on the car’s roof, telling the Scarborough Mirror:

“I was in shock at first [when I saw that vehicle]. My heart started beating. I’m appalled that I’m the first person to flip out about this. It was very painful for me.”

But this event wasn’t a gathering for fans of the confederacy. Rather, Anderson flipped over the General Lee replica, apparently unaware of the old Dukes of Hazzard TV series.

To be faithful to the original Dodge Charger from the series, the replica sported a Confederate flag but that doesn’t mean the owner is a KKK Grand Wizard. 

Even worse, not only was Anderson triggered by the car, she was also triggered because other people weren’t triggered.

And, since this is 2017, the apology parade soon kicked in with festival organizers and politicians, including Toronto’s mayor, all chiming in to express their sympathetic indignation. Boss Hogtown Tory said:

“We all have to be careful and keep sending the message that everybody is embraced here and that historic things that symbolized behaviour that we never encouraged here are not welcome.”

Jesus Chrysler! We’re talking about a vintage car paying homage to an old TV series, not an act of genocide!

@Andrew Stephenson…A contemporary leftist’s display of high horse dressage is far more offensive than any “culturally appropriated” grievance……are you black Andrew?

@Andrew Stephenson "Perhaps the confederate flag wasn’t associated with white supremacy 30-40 years ago (I am skeptical of that, but I was not around when Dukes of Hazzard was in its first run)…. but it certainly is today.

Perhaps it’s best viewed with the same acknowledgement that it was a product of its time, much like the language in Tom Sawyer, but that doesn’t mean it’s still an acceptable symbol.’’

Perhaps we should take ALL of history and simply burn it….then there would not be ANY reason to cherish ANY grudge….what would you leftards have to justify your existance then?

Andrew Stephenson why can we have communist flags and Che shirts which actually represent mass murder and oppression?

Andrew Stephenson, the meltdown of the woman at the car show and subsequent politicians weighing in on Twitter to virtue signal, while being silent about hate march AKA Al-Quds day is not acceptable!!!!! So, the next time you want to post about unacceptable symbols, say it loud, say it clear, the Hezbollah flag should not be flown here!

Andrew Stephenson, I think you need to figure out why you say the Confederate Flag is not an acceptable symbol. How quickly you discard the history of this flag, and, tell Americans what part of their heritage they can keep. How elitist you are!
There is a lot of misinformation that has been fed to young people who are too lazy to learn the history for themselves.

“I believe you’re probably right Randy… Bipolar people use this as an excuse to become unhinged in the world has to bend to suit their reality.. "

Bipolar? My guess would have been schizophrenic.
Schizophrenia:
Psychiatry.. Also called dementia praecox. a severe mental disorder characterized by some, but not necessarily all, of the following features: emotional blunting, intellectual deterioration, social isolation, disorganized speech and behavior, delusions, and hallucinations.

Stephen E quit telling the truth, the SJW’s hate it. And their hypocrisy on the issue is massive. They are immature and small minded and hate reality.

Jeff Dunham—That is an important story, I would e-mail it to Ezra. I have had the pleasure of listening to Wild Bill speak and he is more of a Preacher than a hate-speech speaker.

Yes Ybia Anderson is mentally ill and needs help, but so is John Tory. I now understand what happened when he was leader of the Ont. Conservatives; the polls showed him to be the next Premier until he said that he was in favor of building special Muslim schools with taxpayer money.
What a loser.

Don’t buy it for a second. All this faux indignation is just a ploy. Unless this woman had been run over by the General Lee when she was 8 years old I don’t buy all this triggering hysteria. It’s all just an attempt to cleanse history. I do believe she may have been embarrassed at people laughing at her triggering over a model car. As she should be. We have to laugh at these idiots attempts to squelch free speech.

Makes me want to go out and buy a confederate flag and fly it on my truck antenna. Actually If I knew where to buy a confederate flag, a skull and cross bones etc. I would be there in a heart beat.
Maybe I can buy these flags on line. Will have to check.

A couple of decades ago 911 would have been dialed, two men in an ambulance would have collected this “triggered” woman, taken her to the nearest hospital, checked her into the psychiatric ward for observation. There must be something in the beverages they drink or something they smoke or snort that makes politicians and the latte swilling crowd think they need to cater to such insanity.

After thinking about it a little bit more I don’t care if it sounds bigoted or racist at all but I have had enough of unvetted mass migrated cultural diversely.
Adapt and assimilate or go home.!! I am proud of my culture and I am proud of my country… Internationally my elected civil servant p.m. embarrasses me, nationally it angers me when the many fold over for the few.. If you want a country you no longer recognize have the majority ruled by the minority.
And there’s nothing bigoted or racial about that.!

I love the Dukes of Hazzard, own every episode. And no, the owner is not a grand wizard of the KKK, but Hillary Clinton`s self described ``mentor``, most certainly was. The commentators here are nothing less than amazing, facts over emotion. Now I have no excuse to not read all 24 volumes of my Time-Life: The Civil War. It`s summer, time to get reading. BTW i`m pretty sure `Diversity` is an old, old wooden ship.

Like Levitcus 13, I have hit my fun threshold with all this B.S. cultural diversity. Hey Ybia, do yourself and humanity a favor and trigger yourself in head a few hundred times with a rubber hammer. It’s not like you have any gray matter up there anyway.

Let us review: it was black Africans who gathered up other black Africans for the Arab slave traders. The Muslims had the habit of castrating male slaves (so that they couldn’t reproduce ergo keeping demand up for new slaves) causing as much as 9 in 10 dying.

There were as many or more Irish slaves and white permanently indentured servants and workers in the US as black slaves, a fact conveniently forgotten by history. We hear that there was a large number of black slaves in the US back then, and this makes us think that there were millions; there were about 160,000, actually. A number far less than the millions of Jews Germany made into slaves – another fact that history forgets.

The slave trade was controlled by Muslims. Even today, black Muslims are treated poorly in Arab Africa. There are today many black slaves in Muslim Africa, to which there is silence by the Left, under reported by the media, ignored by Western blacks, and ignored by the UN.

When I hear that SJWs are offended by the Confederate flag I wonder why they are not angered and outraged by mosques, North African and Middle East flags (well, they are outraged by Israel’s flag – where there is no slavery), and Islam. It was Islam that ran the slave trade, and it is Islam that still allows black slaves today.

One day the SJWs will pick up a book other than Dick and Jane and discover that they are so, so wrong. After that get a job other than serving coffee and muffins at Starbucks.

BTW, one of the main reasons for the War of 1812 between the British and the US was that the British were stopping slave ships on the high seas, confiscating the slave ships, and freeing the slaves, The American North and South both fully supported going to war over that. The Brits were enforcing their anti-slavery policy. That was white men fighting and dying for blacks. Why isn’t the Union Jack and the UK revered by black America?

Guess I can’t watch Happy Days anymore since Howard Cunningham drove a Desoto which was named after a Spanish Conquistador who invaded the Southern US and opened the way for European aggression in Turtle Island. Pontiacs are out since they are a prime example of cultural appropriation. La Salle’s ere named after a French explorer. Cadillac? Another French explorer who established the city of Detroit where they are made.

Who knew car shows were such hotbeds of racism and intolerance? Oh the humanity! Its time all these cars were crushed and melted down to expiate for our sins. We’ll call it a “buy back”.

We all should have boycotted the movie, Lincoln. It not only showed the confederate flag in it at one point, it also had real confederates in it…. some saying the “n” word! I saw it about 5 times…. I’m really ashamed of myself.
