America’s War on the Confederate Flag is a War on the Past

It’s an interesting piece over at The Federalist [1]:

The danger in thinking this way is that eventually you lose hold of the past. Some Americans, especially on the Left, would be fine with that—the past was full of unenlightened racists and homophobes, after all, good riddance to them. For them, the past is an ever-present enemy. Thus what began last year in the wake of the Charleston church massacre [2] as a reasonable reassessment of where and how the Confederate flag should be displayed, has now become a campaign to erase the memory of the Confederacy from the public square.
