Mark Potok: Confederate Flag Can ‘Lead’ People To Take ‘Action’

‘I think they are something that helps people come up with cohesive ideologies and ultimately perhaps, you know, lead in that kind of way to action’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

MITCHELL: "And do you think that the flag itself is more than a symbol? Is it an impetus to haters like the suspect in this case?" 
POTOK: "Well, you know, I think symbols are important. They are things around which people rally. They are things that give people an identity. So I think they are something that helps people come up with cohesive ideologies and ultimately perhaps, you know, lead in that kind of way to action."
