The Left-wing extremist attacks on traditional American culture and attempts to rewrite or simply bury history are advancing apace, as the latest salvo is launched against the “racist” POW/MIA flag, which one mainstream media writer now thinks should go the way of the Confederate flag.

Writing in something called The Washington Spectator, an organ of “The Public Concern Foundation” – whatever that is (considering the organization’s stated website listed on this page won’t open) – “historian” Rick Perlstein, called the POW/MIA flag a “racist” symbol “useful only to venal right-wing politicians who wish to exploit hatred by calling it heritage.”

In his lengthy, sometimes rambling August 10 piece, Perlstein charges that the black-and-white flag, meant to honor U.S. military personnel who are taken as “prisoners of war” or soldiers who have gone “missing in action,” is little more than an invented cult by President Richard Nixon “in order to justify the carnage in Vietnam in a way that rendered the United States as its sole victim.”
