My battle flag flies proudly over my front yard. It is my heritage. My flag of freedom.
Some say it represents racism and repression. I disagree.
My battle flag was flown over great victories … although in the end it was flown sadly in defeat. Still, I am proud of the men who fought for that flag. They died for their race. The white race. They died to defend their way of life from those who would oppose it.
The heritage behind my flag is a long and honored one. It goes back for centuries. Respect my heritage. Thousands died in battles against those who would take away our way of life. Some said that our way of life was wrong because we enslaved others. But that was our right. Under the law. All was legal. Who has the right to change our laws?
Some say my flag represents racism. Nonsense. It represents the way things are or should be. Those who are inferior were given jobs to do. Life time employment. Those laborers, who some called “slaves” helped make us economically strong. We needed their labor. And , as the superior race, they accepted their place.
Until the outsiders caused problems. The so-called “democracy” lovers who said we should not enslave others because of their skin color or ethnicity. The buddinskies. Those who wanted everyone to be “equal”.
Some say my flag is a flag of violence. And terror. Yes, sometimes we had to destroy the elements of rebellion among the inferior population. We have had to keep them at bay with whippings and hangings and fear. Otherwise these inferiors would overrun the masters. So be it. What some call “terror” we call “law and order” No society can exist without it.
My flag recognizes that we are not all born “equal”. Some deserve to be master. Some are born to serve as workers and slaves.
I am proud of my ancestors who died fighting for those ideals. For the rights of the white man to be master. For the right of the state to determine its own system and not be imposed upon by others. The flag of freedom flies proudly from the flagpole in my front yard.
It is my heritage. I am German. My flag is the Swastika.
