Bed And Breakfast Removes Norwegian Flag After Accusations It Was Confederacy

Welcome to 2020

From the article

Bed and breakfast Nordic Pineapple in Saint Johns has removed their Norwegian flag after dozens of people confuse it for the Confederate flag.

Greg and Kjersten Offbecker moved into the historic mansion two years ago and turned it into a bed and breakfast. As decoration, they hung a Norwegian flag next to the American flag at the front entrance of the inn, but dozens of guests and people driving by have accused the couple of flying a Confederate flag.

“They are the same color, but there are no stars on the Norwegian flag, and the Confederate flag is a big ‘x’ and the Norwegian flag is part of the Nordic countries, they’re all crosses,” Offbecker said.

Last week, the couple decided to remove the flag as they were updating their marketing materials.

Offbecker said she was trying to represent her heritage, but it’s not worth the frustration. She said they have received cruel emails and phone calls over the confusion of the flag.

“What we’re getting is so much more negative now,” she said. “It’s not just, ‘hey you’re flying the Confederate flag.’ It’s, ‘you should be ashamed to fly the Confederate flag. You’re a bigot because you fly the Confederate flag.‘”

Some people are even convinced the home was built by Confederate leaders. In fact, it was built by union workers for the daughter of the Saint Johns founder.

Normally, I might wonder if they just made this kind of stuff up to get some free press for their business, like so many things are made up these days, but, you can really see this kind of thing happening during this era, right?

    This is totally believable because many people are truly this ignorant, and those whose ignorance is permanent are just stupid. Remember the multiple flaps over the word “niggardly”? My favorite comes from the University of Wisconsin–Madison where a female student reported a prof for using the word. She said the professor continued to use the word even after she told him that she was offended. “I was in tears, shaking,” she told the faculty. “It’s not up to the rest of the class to decide whether my feelings are valid.” Maybe not, but the class can absolutely decide for themselves if you’re full of crap.

    Also, here’s a bonus question: How long will it be before sports teams with animal mascots and/or team names come under fire? Surely some group of dunderheads somewhere must be offended by that.

    Ignorance is a hallmark of the left.

    This is what happens when you don’t teach history.

    • David Kendrick says:

      This is what happens when you DO teach history, which is an account written for the victor.

      • formwiz says:

        No, the truth in history eventually comes out.

        What the Left teaches is ignorance.

        • Professor Hale says:

          True. For the literate, history is written by everyone. Just as one example, look at all the books in the libraries written by Southern civil war generals. Just look fast before the leftists burn them all. There are surviving histories written from all sides of the Napoleonic wars. Recently opened Russian archives have made a huge volume of histories (non-Soviet) available that had previously not been known to exist.

    We really, really need to have a (hopefully) peaceful partition of this country. There is no way real Americans can live with this type of ignorance, bigotry, racism and hatred the left produces in such vast amounts. We need our own businesses, media, sports, schools and government to re-invent republicanism, capitalism and spiritualism. We need to build our families, churches and recreate the social contract which held America to a set of standards before the communists graduated college with degrees in bullshit and rampage.

    For most of the history of our former country, Whites didn’t need to think or worry about the culture or the trajectory as they were the clear demographic majority and pretty much everyone just assumed it would always be this way. Then there was a scare in the early 20th century and so immigration was basically shut down for forty years. But the Marxist termites were gnawing at the foundation.

    Fast forward to today and here we are – Whites are a bare majority and numerous coalitions are agitating against us on all sides. And still the bulk of our compatriots are doing their daily thing and acting like it’s 1955 and nothing is ever going to change, while the Marxist whites are now siding with and antagonizing blacks.

    If the riots, the shutdowns, the economic and psychological destruction, the evermore strident anti-White animus by Democrats and the looming cluster fuk of an election (or maybe not) doesn’t wake the sheeple out of their stupor, God knows what will. The hour grows short. If you think America will continue as the American Republic we grew up with under the control of Marxist self hating God hating whites using blacks and browns as their paramilitary Gestapo you’re dreaming. None of those people are capable of running a free country or they would have done so before.

    Trump 2020 If Biden is elected it will be the last election. The Democommies will never allow another fair and free election. If they steal this one boy’s, we lose it all.

      Kye,
      There is no reasonable partition possible. A great many of those ignorant people are the children of those “real Americans”. Even a patchwork partition by county, based on something as simple as political party, would result in huge minorities of each party inside “enemy territory. The divisions in America are ideological, not geographic. There is no “dividing the baby in half” solution. Each side must work diligently to ensure the least harmful party will govern the “baby”. In the history of the planet, no party has proven to govern as benignly over outsiders as the White, Christian, population of North America. We even allowed communists, atheists, hippies, Wiccans, and openly fraudulent groups like the Mormons and Scientologists to flourish here.

    • David Kendrick says:

      America is a land carved up by the Papacy genocided by Spain, a Pirate Kingdom of France, depopulated of natives by the masons, ruled over from 1603 by corporations the majority of whose populations were slaves both white and black, whose gentry decided by 1750 to create their own roman empire in defiance of their home nation attacked a foreign power, sparked a world war, refused to pay their share of the costs, enacted 5 years of terrorism against the home nation using exactly the same tactics antifa uses today, got the very powers they intended to seize lands from – to back the 13 colonies in a war of independence, exported its republican revolution ideals to those nations whose colonies themselves repeated the revolutions who then disintegrated, the now USA invaded those colonies in an expansion drive – the death total and costs to the world is immeasurable.

      Whist this was ongoing, the US demonised the UK despite doing all the imperial stuff itself, whilst the UK had shrank to its home islands, Newfoundland and Jamaica and was not back on the scene until North Island New Zealand applied to become a colony in 1830, the UK survived on income as the home of the industrial revolution yet was the great satan set there to deprive the US citizen of his rights and liberties for 150 years, the evil empire which in fact was only an empire from 1858 until 1948 which began with the final removal of the East India company from the world under nationalisation and the title of Empress of India being awarded to Queen Victoria in 1858.

      Britain reformed politically to be ‘more’ democratic but only after relentlessly pushing its corporations out of the government process, the USA is 70 – 170 years behind, the UK has just in 2015 done it again and is pushing for its democracy and independence, the USA either looks back to a glory period which quite franckly, is pretty disgusting worthy more of Genghis Khan, we were expecting you to morph into a true democracy of the future and grow out of it instead we have an ever more complete form of roman imperialism under its republic where everything is censored controlled by the state through corporate proxies or the state as a proxy of corporations depending on what can be gotten away with. By the way, it all ends in bankruptcy. Empires do

      Unless you are the UK – which was a fake empire in name only. No empire allows self government without taxation to the home nation. Rome always received tribute.

      The past is a nice place to visit in memory lane – if sanitised, its no place to live and any nation set on repeating it has no future.

        Dude. Take a breath and use some punctuation once in a while. A good rule of writing is to put one idea in each sentence rather than 500 years of history.

      Speaking of “last elections”… Mr. Trump continues to spread manure on his crop of white supremacists… He promises to protect white suburbs from BLM and antifa!!

      White liberals, blacks and browns can’t run a free country they cry! It takes white men like Nixon (55 convictions), Bush (9 convictions), Reagan (16 convictions), tRump (6 convictions), Tom Price, Chris Collins, Bill Barr, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Bernie Madoff, Ken Lay… One might also consider that today’s America is run by a white supremacist, with a supportive Senate and a conservative court. And HOW are things NOW? The worst national response to a pandemic in the the world, on our way to 200,000 dead, record debt, sinking economy, unemployment, food lines, kids can’t go to school… Good job, tRumpie, good job. tRump and his ilk blame blacks, browns, Muslims, Mexicans, liberals, transsexuals – they blame everyone else. tRump PROMISED only HE could fix America. Is America better than it was 4 years ago? You don’t have to steal an election from a scoundrel with a sub 40% approval rating.

      What do you think about suspending the November election? That’s what 3rd World countries do when necessary to protect the tyrant.

      With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???

      Anyway, the Ol’ Confederacy can always re-group, snare a few midwestern and mountain red states, secede and deport all the non-whites. The West Coast, East Coast and upper midwest will remain as America.

      • formwiz says:

        What do you think about suspending the November election?

        Regarding mail-in voting, I’ll see your 5 and raise you 500.

        And, since Jeffery wants to talk law and order, we’re still investigating all of Zippy’s crimes.

        If he wants to talk white men, look at his party’s “nominee”, for whom half the country never voted.

        The Bernie Bros call it eating a bowl of sh!t. And let’s let the “candidate” speak for himself, “In the 2020 Census, Which is Now Two Censuses Ago”.

        Jeffery dredges up all the old propaganda because the Demos are scared. He’s been away at Troll Camp and all he’s heard is how the Demos are slipping.

        Now comes news Notorious is back in the hospital for another “procedure”.

        Pharaoh’s army is close on the Lefties tail, the sea is high, no ferries due to Pooh Flu, and Chuck Heston is in Modesto making a Western.

      • Dana says:

        Delaying the election is not suspending it, but it’s a bad deal for President Trump. Whether the election is held or not, his term ends on January 20, 2021, and with no election held, both he and Vice President pence would be out of office.

        The next person in line would be the Speaker of the House, but if there is no election, every House seat is vacant, and House seats can only be filled by special elections.

        After that, the succession falls to the President pro tempore of the Senate, Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA). Since Mr Grassley’s term does not end in 2021, he would become the next President, but he’s 87 years old.

        • formwiz says:

          No, the Demos aren’t thinking that far ahead. All they want is an excuse to implement mail-in voting and, as people across the country have said, “If people can line up to pay respects to John Lewis, then we can have in-person voting in November”.

          Actually, the Demos are horrified Trump, as he always does, called their bluff.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye finally admits what terrifies him and other white supremacists: equality for non-whites. “The hour grows short”, he says. Trump must be kept in office at any cost or the America you love becomes just another European-type social democracy!

      • formwiz says:

        You still have to have Mommy read stuff to you.

        All the rioting is the work of whites, not blacks. The whole country knows that.

      • Kye says:

        Every time you falsely call me a “white supremacist” you show everyone what a liar you really are. You Can’t back up your views so you immediately go to personal attack. What a kunt you are.

        Now, Liar, name one right whites have that is denied to blacks. You are such an ass kissing negrophile your breath smells like shit.

        Trump must be kept in office because if liars and racists like you take over you will destroy us and America. That’s your goal.

        Trump 2020 Or lying dicks like Elwood will determine your future.

    • formwiz says:

      Be cool, dude.

      Antifa and BLM are the Demos’ new KKK, as the Eminent Mr Surber notes. These clowns are in for a disaster of (dare I say?) Biblical proportions.

      Take a deep breath, relax, the God Emperor of the Cherry Blossom Throne has this one.

  5. formwiz says:

    OK, troops, the Eminent Mr Surber, as he always does, nails it to the wall.

    President Trump is keeping his base, including the Obama supporters who voted for Donald Trump in 2016.

    From a (are you ready?) Commie News Net reporter says, “Our Swing Voter Project has uncovered that many of these people, who live in places such as Canton, Ohio; Davenport, Iowa; Erie, Pennsylvania; and Macomb County, Michigan, prefer Trump over Biden. In fact, 22 of 33 respondents in these four most recent locations feel this way.
    And over the first year of the project, from March 2019 through February 2020, more than two-thirds of the Obama-Trump voters said they would take Trump over Obama in a hypothetical match-up”.

    Not crazy about a 33 person sample myself, but, as Darth said, this is CNN. But wait, there’s more.

    “It’s critical to understand why so many of them continue to support Trump.
    They think a businessman is best suited to turn the country around economically. They feel Covid-19 was not Trump’s fault, and he’s doing the best he can to contain it. They conflate the Black Lives Matter protesters with the rioters attacking federal buildings and retail shops. They don’t want historic monuments torn down. And they dismiss defunding the police as ridiculous.

    “These voters tell me they want America finally to be put first; they oppose immigration and trade policies they say give benefits to foreigners at their expense. And they want a non-politician who relentlessly fights back, after witnessing too many office holders fold in the face of special interests.”

    And the best for last from Mr Surber.

    Now the Democrats and their handmaidens in the press will tell you Donald Trump is losing white suburban women.

    They wouldn’t vote for Hillary in 2016 when she was running to be the first Woman President.
