WATCH: Jon Stewart Brilliantly Takes Out the Last of the Confederate Flag Hold-Outs
Jon Stewart, like most of America, is still trying to make some sense out of last week's unspeakable tragedy in Charleston, South Carolina. No matter what happens, it seems, we can all be slightly assured that one of the most prominent and iconic symbols of southern racism will end its state-sanctioned reign in the Palmetto State.
With Walmart, Ebay, and a whole host of business and state legislators calling for an end to the use of the confederate battle flag, at least some good will come of this horrific event. But wait! Jon Stewart has noticed a rising ride of hold-outs who still want to combat the "PC police" and defend what is quickly becoming the indefensible.
"[Slavery] is the heritage you're defending. I'm sure your soldier ancestors had other redeeming qualities, but this is the thing that they're known for," Stewart said. “It’d be like saying you support flying the Nazi flag because you’re proud of their robust anti-smoking agenda. But that wasn’t really their thing."
Some people don't quite get that. Thankfully, they're more and more in the minority.
