Shoebat the Lesser: Burn the Rainbow Flags!

Ted Shoebat, son of fake “ex-terrorist” Walid Shoebat and advocate for the “slaughter” of gay “reprobates,” is offering his usual thoughtful and reasonable opinion on both same-sex marriage and the Confederate flag controversy: Burn the rainbow flags!

Don’t ban the Confederate flag, instead they need to ban that blasphemous and demonic homosexual flag, that desecrates and mocks the beautiful image of the rainbow that signifies the covenant that God made with man never to flood the world again…

The Confederate Flag is a symbol of the South, and before you start bringing up slavery, here is a simple fact to remember — the Union had slaves too.

Yet, the degrading sodomite flag — which has no historical roots — is being hoisted by the US government, not just in the nation of the US, but in American embassies all over the world.

America is advancing the sodomite agenda, that is why it hoists this useless flag all over the world, because the sodomite movement is an imperialistic movement that seeks to take over world. It is truly a hateful symbol, hateful against Christianity, hateful against the very Faith that built civilization, hateful against the building block of all civilization — the Family. It is a despotic symbol that deserves nothing but the flames.

I say keep the Confederate flag and strip every single one of these repulsive, diabolical little flags. Shred them to pieces, burn them, take them down and rip them up. Do whatever is necessary to destroy these idols. All of those in the South, who want to see the Confederate flag remain hoisted and presented, should, in multitudes, burn these horrid sodomite flags, to shake up the government and let them know: we know why you are doing this, you have an agenda, and that is to strip away traditional Southern culture and replace it with the modernist antichrist ideology…

This is why I say, destroy the fag flag, burn it down, and keep the Confederate flag.

For fanatical bigots like Shoebat, who has already openly advocated for the slaughter of gay people, it’s quite obvious that it isn’t the gay flag that they want to burn, it’s gay people.

    Yet another moron who doesn’t understand the nuances between “ostracize” and “ban”.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    Just don’t call him unhinged.

  • jufulu

    Is it just me that notices that words lose their meanings within the quotes that Ed uses in his posts (a great deal of the time, but not always) and then words become meaningful outside of the quotes. Is there an explanation for that?

  • matty1

    A useless flag? Oh no , normally flags are such practical things used to solve problems like, like… I may need some help here.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    matty1, one very practical use for a flag is that it helps you get elected to high office if you wrap yourself in one.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    jufulu, I’ve noticed that too. Seems everything turns to gibberish almost every time Ed puts blockquotes around it.

  • Randomfactor

    Apparently he’s also claiming that last night’s Venus/Jupiter conjunction is the second Bethlehem Star presaging the Second Coming. I didn’t bother to click the link, which I presume concluded with “send money.”

  • sugarfrosted

    He has a point, you need a flag to take over. (insert Eddie Izzard routine here.)

    It’s a known bug with CSS that quoting dimwits causes the browser to render gobbledygook. Hopefully it will be fixed with CSS 4.

    And for all intents and purposes, the Union did not have slavery by the time of the Civil War. (Check it out over on snopes.com.)

  • dingojack

    Oooh burn a flag — that’ll show ’em,

    Oh wait, isn’t burning a flag really, really bad or something?

    Oooh burn a flag — that’ll show ’em…

    hateful against the very Faith that built civilization

    Yeah! The Sumerians, the Hittites, the ancient Egyptians, the Chinese, the Indus valley people, the ancient Greeks, and the Roman empire pre-Constantine were all like totally Christians!

  • Sastra

    What particularly bothers me here is that Shoebat doesn’t seem to realize that nobody on the Other Side is getting rid of Confederate flags by sneaking up poles, stealing them, and burning them. But anyone who reads this “fight-fire-with-fire” rant is going to think that yes, your neighbor is coming for your flag. It’s incendiary on multiple levels.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    Sastra, I was thinking the same thing. This nut is advocating violence.

  • howardhershey

    The only places for the Confederate flag should be a museum, a civil war re-enactment, and toilet paper.

    Sit down and shut up. The adults are talking.

    @14: Didn’t you hear? Someone actually did climb up the flagpole in front of the South Carolina statehouse and take their Confederate flag. It wasn’t secret, she did it in broad daylight and got photographed during the act and arrested as soon as she got down. But otherwise, yeah, climbing up poles and taking flags is indeed a thing that’s happening.

    “And for all intents and purposes, the Union did not have slavery by the time of the Civil War. (Check it out over on snopes.com.)”

    Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware and Missouri were all slave states that held for the Union, so in fact by the time the war started, the Union did still have slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation didn’t do anything to change this, either, since it specifically freed those slaves in states that were involved in rebellion.

    Dingojack: Bikinis?

    I’m not 100% sure, but I think she’s got both pieces of that bikini on upside down. Maybe it’s a protest?

    Maybe the flag is distressed…
