Clyburn: Haters of Germany Picked Up Confederate Battle Flag to Replace Swastika

‘And if you cannot understand what that symbolizes then something is kind of wrong with you’

EXCERPT:

CLYBURN: “That flag was a symbol. I know, after going off and studying history. And for me to study about the Holocaust and what it meant in Germany, and for Germany to outlaw the swastika, and for the haters of Germany to pick up the Confederate battle flag to replace it. And if you cannot understand what that symbolizes then something is kind of wrong with you. And so, we know what the Confederate battle flag symbolizes.”
