John Walker Lindh and the Confederate Flag – “Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them” – Al Franken

November 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · Politics, US Politics

I learned that the Confederate flag is still a huge issue in the Palmetto State. That same day, I heard someone on Fox News call John Walker Lindh a traitor—which he was. He was a traitor because he fought against soldiers wearing the uniform of the United States of America. Terrible traitor. You know who were the worst traitors in the history of our country? The Confederates. They took up arms against soldiers wearing the uniform of the United States of America. But they were much, much worse than John Walker Lindh. Because they killed hundreds of thousands of American troops. And for what cause? So they could whip and torture black people. Why would anyone want to put up a flag honoring that?
