The Confederate battle flag is far from the only worrisome symbol in America today.The class-warriors are not interested in "being American". They are interested in "fundamentally changing America" into their own bastion of groupthink, where no one can contest, analyze, or criticize their dominance of culture, government and all public space... and at some point, all private space as well. There is no negotiation possible, because they are morally right, morally elite, and generally better than everyone who is not them. That self-conceptualization (identity) follows both the Nietzsche/Leninist New Man Marxism, and the Nietzsche/Aryan New Man Fascism in the pursuit of Leftist class-warfare. For them, "being American" is repugnant; being dominant, elitist, Messiah class warriors is who they are, and that New Man tribal and self-identity will not change.
"Symbols, flags, organizations, and phrases that emphasize racial difference and ethnic pride are no longer just fossilized notions from the 1960s; they are growing fissures in the American mosaic that now threaten to split the country apart — fueling the suspicion of less liberal and more homogeneous nations that the great American experiment will finally unwind as expected.
That would be a great tragedy, but a catastrophe entirely predictable if citizens seek symbolic solidarity with their tribe rather than in the common idea of just being American."
