Las Cruces, New Mexico newspaper reporter and online columnist Heath Haussamen has an article out entitled ‘Tea Party’s use of Confederate flag is indefensible‘ attacking the New Mexico Tea Party for displaying the flag of the Southern people on their award-winning float in a recent Fourth of July parade. In doing so, Haussamen echoes the opinion of the city’s Mexican-Japanese mayor, Ken Miyagishima . He even states that the Tea Party group would have been better to display the Mexican flag rather than the Southern Cross. Haussamen writes:
[T]he Tea Party in Las Cruces is guilty of such an offensive with its recent inclusion of the Confederate flag in its Fourth of July parade float.
In our society, the flag has two competing meanings. One is about states’ rights, Southern heritage and independence; the other is about slavery and racism.
Notice that Haussamen uses the rhetoric of anti-Whites in his piece.
[T]he Tea Party failed to include Spanish or Mexican flags on its float. Both have had a much greater and more lasting impact in New Mexico than the Stars and Bars.
From here it’s all down-hill as Haussamen lapses into limp-wristed, feel-good rhetoric with a section of his lengthy rant called ‘Disregard for others’ opinions and feelings.’ I’ll spare y’all further excepts of this Leftist, anti-Southern nonsense.
