A Seahawks football flag with St. Andrew’s Cross on it had apparently hung in a Tacoma bar for four years without a problem. But then a customer noticed it looks a bit like the Stars and Bars.
“I just happened to look up and I saw it there, and I was just really shocked. To me, I could definitely see the resemblance to something that, you know, for me is not OK, whether it be oppression, racism, rape, murder, slavery,” Leah Ford said.
The bar owner at first balked, then took it down after some social media shaming.
It’s pretty clear at this point that the Confederate battle flag has become as offensive as the Nazi swastika to progressives.
