BBC reporter at CPAC sees a Trump variant of the second official flag of the Confederacy, or maybe not

We’ve already established that the producers of CPAC modeled the main stage after the Odal rune used by the SS. He’s deleted the tweets, but BBC senior North America reporter Anthony Zurcher noted another sign of white supremacy being flown outside CPAC in Orlando. It looks like someone’s taken the “Stainless Banner,” the second official flag of the Confederacy, and replaced the Confederate symbol with a capital T for Trump.

Or, just maybe, it’s the Christian flag with the top folded over in the wind?

Just gonna skip right over the wild Confederate flag theory that was at the heart of your deleted tweets, right? No need to fess up if you pretend it didn’t happen.

Deleting an earlier tweet about what looked like a Trump flag at a rally outside CPAC, but may have been the Christian flag that had gotten partially wrapped around its poll.

deleted, but the List comes for all, @awzurcher.

Pretty sure that’s the Christian Flag, designed in 1907 by the superintendent of a Sunday school in Brooklyn, New York, and used since by denominations including Anglican, Lutheran, and Presbyterian.

Gotta love it when someone post something on Twitter thinking they are owning the right, just to show how big of a dumbass they are.

Is that first flag not just a red T with a blue background?

They look nothing alike.

Its not even a “T” its a cross that just has the top part folded down by the wind

It’s the Christian flag. Often on display at protestant schools.

How lazy and ignorant is the junior BBC North American reporter if this sloppy fool is “Senior”? Also, “pole”.

He uses Snopes as a source for his claims about the second Confederate flag.

Just take the bloody L, dude.

Wow you really owned the cons with that one!

This flag is the Christian flag. The way you can tell is the red cross on the blue background and the white.


Red cross symbolizes Christ’s blood spilled for ALL PEOPLES, on the cross.

Blue background symbolizes the waters of baptism & faithfulness of Jesus

“A Texan who explains US politics to Brits” And doesn’t know what a confederate flag looks like. Ok. Good luck Brits.

You see what you want to see.

If you thought those two flags were even remotely close get your head examined.

You realize this kind of shit is why half the nation hates the other half, right?

I don’t hear the words, “I was wrong and hateful.” in this correction.

Oops, I may have falsely accused somebody of racism. No big deal.

Quit making excuses. You mistook a common flag, seen outside churches all over America, for one of your sweaty fantasies about your political opponents.

You sound like a world class expert at explaining “US politics to Brits.”

You report better when you put on your glasses and stop thinking about Trump 24/7.
