This, by fellow blogger Restoring Britain, was written in response to the post called Creeps:
Our problem is too many among us think of this activity as some sort of attack of the vapours on the part of do gooding imbeciles that just causes the majority to throw their hands in the air with a “it’s political correctness gone mad” type comment. You, I and others know differently. We have scratched at the veneer of thisand have found that rather than being lots of isolated attacks of one off madness it is in fact part of a very real and very deliberate initiative.
Flags are signals and flags are rallying points. They tell people where the safe place is for like minded people. In battlefield situations flagsare messages to troops that this is where you are safe, this is your stronghold and this is where you regroup. Its similar on a political level too. The hard left know this. When the same flag is everywhere it’s a display of strength. They know it’s a symbol of your culture and all it stands for. Not a sheep had something at his place the other day pointing to an article in the Guardian saying how ugly our flag was unlike the American flag. I thought the Guardian article had missed the point. For me, the beauty and the warm feelings around the US flag wasn’t about its design, but it was about all the images it evokes about what’s good about them. America has invested so much of its good cultural points that its has ascribed to it a sort of soft welcome home feel about it amongst other things.
One wonders if the athletics thing goes back to 2012. Although Boyle tried to make it a lefty fest, the British people woke up to their sense of pride again. Flags were everywhere. We started to believe again. Those that want something different nearly lost control of their little initiative because we woke up.
They know this and that’s why they chip away at it. Toxify the flag and make them hide it, those with a genuine love for the country no longer know where to find like minded and friendly faces. That way you keep them on the run, because if we run we don’t think and if we don’t think we can’t form a counter argument but worse of all if, we’re running we’re less like to stop and say I’ve had enough of those people running us down and I’m going to push back.
