    Bed and Breakfast Removes Norwegian Flag After People Confuse it With Confederate Battle Flag

    Bed and Breakfast Removes Norwegian Flag After People Confuse it With Confederate Battle Flag

    “What we’re getting is so much more negative now,” she said. “It’s not just, ‘hey you’re flying the Confederate flag.’ It’s, ‘you should be ashamed to fly the Confederate flag. You’re a bigot because you fly the Confederate flag.‘”

    You want to know why we have an electoral college? Because the founders knew there would be people who wouldn’t bother to distinguish between flags and that those same people would claim we live in a democracy, and then vote.

    This one comes from today’s “I literally can’t even” file.

    In Michigan, Greg and Kjersten Offbecker have removed the Norwegian flag flying outside of their bed and breakfast, the Nordic Pineapple. The couple purchased the historic mansion two years ago and converted it to a bed and breakfast. They’ve flown the Norwegian flag along with the American flag out front.

    Unfortunately, (and because our public education system is mostly hot, stinky garbage), the Offbecker’s have removed the Norwegian flag as far too many people have confused it with the Confederate Battle Flag (which is also not the same as the flag of the Confederacy).

    Watch:

    From local news:

    Greg and Kjersten Offbecker moved into the historic mansion two years ago and turned it into a bed and breakfast. As decoration, they hung a Norwegian flag next to the American flag at the front entrance of the inn, but dozens of guests and people driving by have accused the couple of flying a Confederate flag.

    “They are the same color, but there are no stars on the Norwegian flag, and the Confederate flag is a big ‘x’ and the Norwegian flag is part of the Nordic countries, they’re all crosses,” Offbecker said.

    Last week, the couple decided to remove the flag as they were updating their marketing materials.

    “We started to have this concern that it was deterring people away from coming to our bed and breakfast,” Offbecker said. “That they would see it and make this judgement.”

    Offbecker said she was trying to represent her heritage, but it’s not worth the frustration. She said they have received cruel emails and phone calls over the confusion of the flag.

    “What we’re getting is so much more negative now,” she said. “It’s not just, ‘hey you’re flying the Confederate flag.’ It’s, ‘you should be ashamed to fly the Confederate flag. You’re a bigot because you fly the Confederate flag.‘”

    Some people are even convinced the home was built by Confederate leaders. In fact, it was built by union workers for the daughter of the Saint Johns founder.

    This is a Confederate battle flag (or you can ask Rick Wilson about his cooler).

    This is not.

    Large Problem: these fools/tools will continue to breed and will demonstrate their stupidity without any awareness. They are literally too dumb to know better.

    The U.S. isn’t running out of petroleum. Every time the libs claim we are running out the technology keeps improving. We keep finding more, and it becomes more cost effective to extract it.

    We have timber. We’re not going to run out of that either. I can’t think of a single natural resource we are in danger of running out of.

    Unfortunately one natural resource America is lousy in is idiots.

    And the thing is you can prove they’re wrong. And they don’t care. Which is what makes them idiots.

    I remember Charles Johnsonhead of Little Green Foosballs claiming a flag at a Tea Party rally was that of a South African white-separatist party.

    It was obviously (to everyone but the deranged) the state flag of Tennessee.

    This reminds me of the uproar created when a journalist(I use the term loosely.) Saw a photo of miners and thought it was blackface. He never backed down from his outrage because you know coal miners clearly should have been able to control their appearance after a day in the mine. It seems to boil down to myopic world views and utter failure to learn.
