A concerned resident made a call to the local newspaper to check out this blatant display of ‘hate’ only to find that…
…it wasn’t a Confederate flag at all.
The Seattle Times had received a tip from Rebecca Morris, a New York Times bestselling author of true-crime books.
“Hi. Suddenly there is a Confederate flag flying in front of a house in my Greenwood neighborhood. It is at the north-east corner of 92nd and Palatine, just a block west of 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. I would love to know what this ‘means’ … but of course don’t want to knock on their door. Maybe others in the area are flying the flag? Maybe it’s a story? Thank you.”
The Times sent out a team right away to look into the matter.
What they found was not a Confederate flag.
Here’s the flag that was being protested:
Well, that doesn’t look like a Confederate flag, does it?
This is the Confederate flag:
There was no wind, and on a flagpole there was what obviously was the U.S. flag at the top, and below, a red flag with blue stripes.
But the Seattle Times gives reasons why Ms. Morris shouldn’t be a laughing stock.
Simply hanging down, not spread out, you could make some assumptions that it was the star-filled “Southern cross” of the Confederacy.
Darold Norman Stangeland lives at the corner house.
“That’s a Norwegian flag,” he says. “It’s been up there since the start of the Olympics.”
The Norwegian flag has a red background, with an off-center white-and-blue cross.
Strangeland says that his parents emigrated to the United States in the 1950s and he’s proud of his heritage. He put the flag up to support the country his parents had come from in the fantastic showing during the Olympics.
“I’m a proud Norwegian-American. My parents emigrated here in the mid-1950s. He skippered tugboats,” Stangeland says.
All that fuss over a Norwegian flag.
So, what did Ms. Morris have to say when she was informed that she mistook a Norwegian flag for a Confederate flag?
She’s apparently ‘stressed’ in the political climate that we’re in.
When told she had mistaken the flag, Morris says, “Are you kidding me?”
She says she had even looked up the Confederate flag online and it sure looked to her like the flag on that corner.
But on a second look, “Well, it does look like the Norwegian flag!”
She says, “Maybe that’s the story … we’re so stressed by all things political that we see things that aren’t there.”

Maybe Ms. Morris could kindly STFU about being ‘stressed’ because of the political climate when she’s effectively pouring gasoline on the fire of division.
If you can’t tell a Norwegian flag from a Confederate flag, honey, maybe you should just sit in the corner with your ‘How to Google Search for Dummies‘ book and let the grown ups handle the big issues, ‘kay?

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
