There was a lot going on in Washington, D.C., today at the “Million Vets March.” However, you’d have been hard pressed to find very many “real journalists” in the mainstream media providing any coverage:

Well, we shouldn’t say some in the media weren’t providing any coverage, because some “real reporters” did manage to use all their skills to sniff out a single attendee who stuck out like a sore thumb:

Notice how Salon not-so-artfully turned that one guy into the entire crowd:

Salon’s little trick there was fairly obvious:


The odds are better than average that for many reasons, the “Million Vet March” will be reported in the mainstream press as “Confederate flag” and little more.

The identity or even affiliation of the person with the confederate flag isn’t known, and chances are the mainstream press won’t be curious in the least, because if it were to turn out the person was a plant of some sort it would ruin the narrative. However, maybe a story about irony is in order:

We’ll let the MSM answer this one, and enjoy the cricket sounds until they do:

Finally, here’s something for organizers to remember if there’s a “Million Vets March” sequel:


One unidentified moron showed up with a confederate flag, so if the press is planning to insinuate most of the crowd showed up only because they hate Obama and not because they love their country and want to keep its memorials open, let them demonstrate a little courage and tell this man to his face. We think he’s earned the courtesy.

  • ObamaFail

    So now the libs are going to twist this into a racist scenario, because to report the facts of what today meant would show Obama in a bad light, so instead they choose to focus on one little thing so they can make it into an “Obama is the victim” scenario.

    • itsatax

      All of them.

    • conservativechick

      Guess what? Those liberal groups send in their clowns all the time to conservative events. We’re used to it. We even carried signs with arrows>>>>NOT WITH US. Doesn’t anyone remember the college professor who sent out an e-mail to all his students – Show up at Tea Party rallies and pretend to be with them? I remember and they were nasty. We called them out before we even knew they were plants. Pathetic tricks.

    • lainer51

      can’t fix stupid (OR BIAS)

  • ObamaFail

    Salon wants to pretend this was an Anti-Black protest, but it’s an Anti-Dictator protest. It’s to protest a petulant child shutting down memorials to vets just to score political points.

    • conservativechick

      Who took this photo? I would LOVE to know…

      • ObamaFail

        So would I. Had to be someone associated with the MSM, seeing as how the flag wasn’t seen in any previous photos until the libs started whining about it.

    • 1389AD

      The Confederate flag is a worldwide symbol of protest against centralized government tyranny.

      Here it is at the fall of the Berlin Wall.

      The fact that Obama, our current tyrant, is half black, and the fact that his most rabid supporters are black, is all the more reason to bring back the Confederate flag and fly it everywhere. WHO CARES about hurting the feelings of those who are doing everything they possibly can to destroy us?

      • ObamaFail

        I don’t care much about hurting feelings. I’ve been using the term “invader” as often as possible to describe illegal immigrant lately. You do have a point though. Those aren’t southern rednecks in that picture you posted, which busts up the liberal myth that only redneck racists have those flags.

      • Hiraghm

        1) that looks Photoshopped, to me.

        2) that’s not a Confederate flag – These are Confederate Flags

      • jetch

        I agree. shouldn’t the flag that a person holds represent *their* beliefs and not the feelings of the people *looking at* that flag? In otherwords, if the guy waving the flag didn’t intend it as a racist statement, then it should not be considered as such, regardless of what some pc idiots want to believe.

  • Richard J Sunkle

    This full on life long Yankee is thinking about getting the biggest confederate battle flag I can find just because its time to start tearing down the PC ivory tower and rub their precious liberal noses in it.

    • ObamaFail

      I’ve already stopped being PC. That’s why I’ve been referring to illegal immigrants as “invaders.” Because that’s what they are doing. Invading our nation.

      • TexasMom2012

        actually we need to stop calling them immigrants entirely. They are illegal alien invaders. Immigrants come here legally and do so without breaking the law.

        • Hiraghm

          illegal alien invaders is what I’ve been calling them for some time. Call me a “hater”; that’s fine. Because I hate them and what they’ve done to my country.

    • b_truit

      The confederate flag is still vastly, yet wrongly, thought of as “I want to keep my slaves”. The civil war was not nearly as much about slaves as it was about the power of the federal government telling states what to do. Slavery was starting to shift into being wrong before the war started. Slavery was wrong yes and could and would have been defeated still the same. However, the civil war on its other issues delt a blow to individual liberty in America.
      Ps. Those who want to say “BUT BUT SLAVERY!” My wife is half black. So shove it.

      • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

        The war would not have happened at all if certain northern industrialists had not stymied attempts to industrialize southern states. Slavery would have withered on the vine as labor-intensive farming gave way to industry.

        • Ronald Green

          The US census of 1860 shows that in the States that eventually seceded, 20% of the Black population was already free. It varied from State to State of course but overall that percentage was up roughly 100% from the previous census. The institution of slavery was already dying, the War just finished it in the worst possible way.

          • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Many of the Free Blacks owned slaves. At one point the largest slave breeder in SC was a freed Black man. don’t know if he ever sold his granma, but he did sell his own children.

          • Ronald Green

            Sshhh… don’t want to upset the race baiters and liberal morons. To them it was all us Raaacist Whiiite people.

          • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Not to worry. Like Mann and Jones they ignore facts that don’t fit their warped view of reality.

          • Ryan Johnson

            I actually had no idea until earlier this year that black people also owned slaves. Of course, it was obvious that since they were sold into slavery that it must’ve been black people that sold them out in the first place, but black people owning slaves in America? That wasn’t exactly taught in school.

          • Ronald Green

            Facts and truth are often absent in our schools today.

            The fellow with dubious distinction of owning the most slaves in the South ever was a free black man in Louisiana. Sorry but I forget his name. In 1860 with the War looming, he sold all his land, packed up all 1100 of his slaves and moved to Brazil.

          • Mark81150 USAF SP EST Team

            I don’t disagree with a lot of what you wrote, but the war was largely caused by fanatics who simply couldn’t wait for the shooting to start.. Lee had the right mindset, Longstreet, they fought for their state’s not any misplaced loyalty to any specific southern ideal.

            and both were sickened by the loss’s on both sides..

            unlike Stonewall Jackson, who took delight in killing those damned Yankee’s.

            God’s and General’s said it best, when a southern Irish regiment fought a northern Irish one.. Delight at first, then confusion at their kin’s bravery, then weeping for the acts they were compelled to commit. Why they didn’t find a peaceful way to reunify, or split apart, we’ll never know. Some of my best friends while serving were southerners,.. we aren’t that different now, or then.

            Not directed at you so much, as some of the comments playing the south as aggrieved victim of northern greed..

            Hardly, there were plenty of demons on the southern side. Growing up I still heard tales of southern raiders who put southern Ohio towns to the torch,.. there were bastards all around.

            and vastly too many young men who’s only sin was fighting for his God, his family… killed by a scared boy on the other side,.. who fought for the same reasons.

          • TexasMom2012

            The war was bad but the Reconstruction has left wounds that have not healed to this day. And the north has full responsibility for the way they behaved after the war. Reconstruction was designed to punish the South not heal the union. It resulted in massive transfer of wealth and property to carpetbaggers from the North who used the inability of Southerners to vote to change laws and taxes to benefit them. There is a reason why we call Yankees still here Damn Yankees. Heck my family owned land on Wall Street from the time of New Amsterdam. After the Civil War we never were able to get back our land. Trinity Church sits on some of the land chartered to my family…

          • Ronald Green

            You should read Jefferson Davis’s farewell speech to the US Senate. Had Lincoln not pushed the issue, a peaceful split and possible eventual reunification was thrown away. But if frogs had wings….

        • AMERICAN Kafir™✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈwhitey

          Don’t forget the “charter” bank that Lincoln refused to re-instate. Lincoln being famous for the ‘greenback’, money printed by the US treasury. The Rockefellers/Rothschilds didn’t like that, had him assassinated and Jackson then re-signed the banking charter in 1864.

          How would it be for the poor blacks to know that slavery was just an excuse for both the North and South to run up wartime debt to the international bankers, so they could fund both sides of the war… as in 1812, as in 1776… as it is today.

      • SawLogBackBone

        Indeed. Heck, I bought one back on an eighth grade trip to the DC area not because I hate black people (the sweetest, kindest, most loving man I know is black). I got it in part because I thought it was a neat design, and part thumbing my nose at convention (it’s where I got the “rbl” portion of my screenname) (I’ll let you guess where the latter portion is from; with the explanation of the first it should be obvious lol). And now knowing more about the civil war, I think of it as an expression of states expressing their tenth amendment rights.

      • The_Questman

        What you said was true. BUT the South where Cotton was King was wealthy compared to Northern States. The north was industrialized but they wanted to sell their goods to the South. The South bought most of their goods such as furniture etc from overseas, mainly England. So the Northerners pushed tariffs on imports to drive the Southerners to buy Their Goods. England & Europe began to buy cotton from other countries that had begun to produce it in retaliation for the tariffs. The Civil War really had little to do with slavery and more about economics. Slavery was nothing more than something for those ignorant about economics to wrap their heads around.

        • Hiraghm

          Most wars are about economics. Look at WWII. Germany built its war machine to revive its economy…

          Napoleon: “Look at the bayonets of my soldiers! See how they gleam in the sun!”
          Tallyrand: “Yes, sire, a bayonet is a wonderful thing. You can do anything with a bayonet… except sit on it.”

      They just might be a plant. Because all of the other pics I’ve seen from today, I didn’t see a Confederate flag. It wouldn’t be the first time the libs planted someone in one of our rallies so the media could use it to make false accusations. That one liberal baby killer ran around in a crowd of Tea Partiers once holding a sign that said, “Racist and Proud.” And when she was exposed as a liberal, the libs still refused to admit she was a plant.

    • Ronald Green

      If not a plant, then the guy was carrying it as a symbol of resistance to tyranny as it is seen in most of the rest of the world. But here the liberals, race baiters, and our liberal media have painted it a different shade.

  • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

    Yo, Frump! Pro tip: that ain’t the Confederate flag. It’s not the Bonny Blue Flag, it’s not the Stars and Bars, it’s not the Stainless Banner. It’s a battle ensign carried by American troops fighting in a doomed cause. Just so you know.

    • Hiraghm

      “American” the same way Candians and Mexicans are “American”. The Confederacy was a legitimate, sovereign nation.

  • Guest

    Whoever has the Confederate Flag has got to be a plant. I’ve gone through every photo on this site where people are waving flags, group photos and all, and that picture is the first time I’ve seen that Confederate Flag. The march went on long enough that some liberal jerk had plenty of time to get a Confederate flag and go there and stand amongst the crowd and wave it. Hell, it might even be someone sent by the MSM, seeing as how they were silent on this until that flag went up.

    • Di

      Yeah, I’ve been wondering also because there is only ONE instance of this flag showing up and I’ve been watching live stream and every single social media site for pictures and information.

      ONE photo of ONE flag in all that time and all the video I watched is fishy as H3!!

    • NRPax

      I did see the guy with the flag but he was the only one with it. He wasn’t shouting anything or being obnoxious so I doubt that he was a plant.

      • Ronald Green

        Then I think he had a different intent… a symbol of resistance to tyranny.

        • NRPax

          There were some people that were discussing a guy with a Confederate flag basically trolling the crowd and having a camera crew follow him. So I shall take the approach that unlike the media, I’m going to wait until the facts come out.

    I have absolutely NO DOUBT this guy was a plant. We saw it at three different anti Obamacare protests. They would show up with racist signs, confederate flags and shouting things about issues we never even considered. They would be there for the cameras, jump in front and wave their nastiness around. After one time, we spotted them early-their car tags and school bumper stickers were from the other side of the county. So we blocked them. Most memorable moment was in front of John Cornyn’s office when some ACORN op tried to claim Cuba had better healthcare. It just so happens one of our group escaped Cuba as a twelve year old. She proceeded to read that ACORN plant chapter and verse in English and Spanish over the difference between the medical care for the elite the care for average people. She informed the lady about how patients had to bring their own food and their own linens. She told them of how dead bodies were often left to rot in the streets.

    Libs are making a big deal out of ONE Confederate flag, yet I never hear them cry out in shock when any libs wear Che Guavara shirts at liberal rallies. Guavara was not the kind of man someone would really want to look up to.

They know the media will then have their visual for their preferred narrative that tea parties are all racists.

    I’m sick of the fools who think the rebel BATTLE flag has anything to do with Slavery. Grow the f**k up.

    Ridiculous that the lunatic leftists have a snit fit about a piece of cloth that is merely an artifact of a bygone era.
    In other news, Obama continues his war on America . . .

  • Jim Denney

    He sure looks a lot like Chad Henderson of recent Obamascare fame.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Actually that’s not even a confederate flag. That is actually the stars and bars which was only used as a navel ensign on Confederate ships. The only time appear on the battlefield was one Hollywood was doing civil war movies

    • Dale Glenn

      The Stars & Bars (Rebel/Dixie Flag) was the standard for the Army of Tennessee but you are right that it wasn’t an official flag of the CSA.


    Did anybody defecate on a police car?

    Racist? No. Secession? Yes.

  • Joan Of Argghh!

    Sandra Fluke had 10 people in a parking lot & it got more coverage than Veterans’ march this weekend. @abcnews @nprnews @nbcNews @CBSNews

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    So, let me get this straight. A single Confederate flag at a WWII veterans’ rally is more offensive to the Left…than the fact their side has treated these veterans like crap?

  • Acethepug

    Betting that we could find at least one Confederate Flag at any number of Lefty protests, too. I wonder if the Media has ever looked …

    Funny how it’s only an issue when the sycophantic Media can use it to help prop up President Boyfriend, isn’t it?

  • Paul C.

    If you can control the news you can control the country!! As you can see this WH is trying to do.

  • carolhaka

    Yeah, it should have been an Al-Qaeda flag he was carrying – that would not have upset them. He could have planted it right onto the WH lawn and that would have been his God Given Right! Worked for all of the ones that flew over our Embassies in the Middle East on 911, 2012 after Hussein’s and Hillary’s gun running episode went public!

  • The_Questman

    Remember the Confederate Flag is the Flag of Democrats. Has anyone identified who this person was? Are they there to ‘GET’ their flag waving on the news? Were they there to make the whole event seem racist? Perhaps they were waving the flag in support of Democrats.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    Look at the picture again. You’ll notice that the young man with the Confederate flag is also waving the Communist “Hammer and Sickle” flag…Obviously, he is a counter-protester (yes, pro-Liberal) who snuck into the crowd somehow…I doubt he was for or with the veterans. Jawamax 8<{D}

    One “moron” showed up with the rebel flag. I was there right next to the “moron” at the WWII memorial and all the way to the white house, and thought it was an appropriate sign of rebellion against a tyrannical gov’t, not RACISM.

  • jkstewart2

    The Confederate Battle Flag guy is probably an Obamaton… I’ve seen Obamaton plants in a tea party rally.

  • CrustyB

    Racist thinking. “If a black person is caught shoplifting than ALL blacks are shoplifters!” Were these people raised by their parents to think like a racist or did they pick up racism by themselves?

  • Hiraghm

    And twitchy shows their hypocrisy by calling someone, probably a veteran, carrying a Confederate battle flag a “moron”. Political correctness is a vile disease that can infect anyone.

    A lot of brave Confederates who fought to preserve the sovereignty of their States against a tyrannical U.S. government ended up in the U.S. army after the Confederate War.

    The only sad part is that, losing the Confederate War led to Wilson, FDR, Johnson, Clinton and Obama.

    Let us see.

    North used political and economic might to opress the south. Used slavery as an excuse to go to war.

    South flag now == bad.

    Ok I get that.

    But under stars and stripes african americans were also treated as sub par humans with numerous race based policies.

    Frankly I fail to see how anyone with a basic knowledge of history can differentiate between stars and stripes vs. confederate flag potential to offend black americans.

    Perhaps it is just time to move on from the past?

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Someone needs to ask the media…..

    “All this over a damn flag?”

  • MmeBB

    Why didn’t any of the paragons of journalism at Salon interview the protester with the confederate flag? Guess making up stuff is just a lot easier…

  • Cryin’ Ted

    All the Demrats have to do with the media on their side is carry a flag or a sign into a crowd of non-Demrats and pervert the issue in their favor. Why wouldn’t normal people immediately suspect a Demrat is behind all of this?

  • Providence Ranch

    Absolutely nothing wrong with the Confederate Flag! Wave it proudly! Put up the current flag and all its past forms with pride; don’t give up our nation.

  • Dennis the Dreamer

    The young man who holds the confederate flag was not even a veteran. Go figure. Looks like a leftist college student to me. Not even gonna bother on some O plant.

  • Happy Dragon

    That Confederate flag would not be there if Obummer did not constantly pressure people into bowing to political correctness!
