Default Six Flags Over Texas Removes Five of the Flags

After Charlottesville, only one flag will fly at Six Flags Over Texas
Quote:
Ever since Six Flags opened in 1961, the six flags that have flown over Texas have been a staple of the park.

No more.

As of Friday morning, the five flags other than the United States flag representing Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas and the Confederacy are being left to the history books.
...
While Six Flags Entertainment operates 20 theme parks in the U.S., Mexico and Canada, only the Arlington park, Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio and Six Flags Over Georgia flew all six flags. Those parks will now only fly the American flag as well.

Does any company have the balls to stand up to the left wing snowflakes and buttercups anymore?

"We always choose to focus on celebrating the things that unite us versus those that divide us."

I am embarrassed for us as a nation, that the rest of the world has to witness the bullshit that the liberals have pushed on the real Americans. I love this country and it pains me to watch it take the final circle around the bowl.

I think I'll just start flipping play-pens as safe-spaces. I could market them as a snowflake comfort zone. Maybe throw in a stuffed animal. I should be able to sell by volume and still quadruple the price.

Maybe the way to handle this is with a little reverse psychology. Get the neo-Nazi/Klan idiots to send a public thank you letter to Six Flags for ripping down the Mexican flag. Also, notify La Raza, Maldef, and the other rabble rousers and rub it in that their flag got booted. I bet we could gin up some real outrage here.
