Democrat Candidate Castro PRAISES Nike’s Controversial BETSY ROSS Flag Decision

We always celebrated our country on the 4th of July. We always loved and respected what the American flag stood for. It was only after Obama’s hatred of “everything American,” that this sick insanity started.

Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro seemed to be happy as a lark about the decision to remove the Betsy Ross flag from new sneakers for this 4th of July.

The historical person known as Betsy Ross was a Quaker. She was a firm abolitionist in keeping with her Quaker Beliefs! There is a logical fallacy called “Anachronism,” this consists of judging people of a different age by today’s standards! Democrats always do this.

Perhaps if our schools started teaching our history again that information would be available. His comparison of the Betsy Ross flag to the Confederate flag only shows his own ignorance.

Democratic presidential hopeful Julián Castro on Wednesday praised Nike’s controversial decision to pull shoes featuring the Betsy Ross flag, saying the early flag design that represents the Thirteen Colonies evokes pain among some Americans, much like Confederate symbols.

“I was glad to see that,” the former Housing and Urban Development Secretary said on CBS News about Nike’s decision to scrap the Betsy Ross design, the Washington Free Beacon reported. “And my hope is that they didn’t just do it to do it — that they understand the significance there.

“Look, there are a lot of things in our history that are still very painful — the Confederate flag that still flies in some places and is used as a symbol,” Mr. Castro continued. “And I believe that we need to move toward an inclusive America that understands that pain — that doesn’t wipe it away from history in the sense that it still belongs in a museum, or we need to read about it and understand the significance, because that’s how you learn and make sure that we don’t make the same mistakes in the future — but does not glorify it, does not celebrate it.” [Washington Times]

Does Castro realize minorities were actually proud of what they did to help propel the country forward under that flag?

Democrats continue to push identity politics. Crispus Attucks (half black & half native) was the first person killed in the Boston Massacre and thus the first American killed in the American Revolution War. There were numerous people of African descent (aka Americans) that fought under the Betsy Ross Flag, the Gadsden or “don’t tread on me,” and many more.

The people really need to learn a bit of American History, especially if you are running for president.

  • You will never satisfy a leftard in their endless quest for paradise on earth. They always create Venezuela. They never appreciate the greatest nation the world has ever seen. They know the value of nothing but can predict what the future should be. As much as they hate the US they never seem to move to one of their ideal nations, like Venezuela which they told us a few short years ago was such a paradise.

  • How stupid can some of these politicians be. Betsy Ross is somewhat of a fictictious person. Read the reasearch and not the rewritten history books. Ross had nothing to do with it and the story behind her was trumped up to uplift the spirit of the people. Nike and colon are showing their ignorance about it; Thought he was leaving the country.... guess no other country will put up with him; he should go to Venezuela or Korea or some place where they share the same belief but will kill one who doesn't share their countries' belief.

  • Phil Knight needs to be taught a very painful financial lesson in the form of a massive boycott of his sports apparel business. Maybe he will figure out to keep his nose out of politics, when it comes to matters of the nation's forefathers/mothers.

  • This current crop of, alledgedly, educated experienced politicians are the creation of a dangerously flawed education system and kept going by a courrupt media.

  • Some people will do or say anything even if it means sending your country and its beliefs down the drain just to get their name and face in the news. They don’t realize when this nation fails to exist there will be no more freedom to do as they wish.

  • Not saying everyone named Castro is an America-hating communist, but this crap for a POTUS candidate is.
