Critics say the Confederate flag is all about slavery and oppression. They say it's a symbol of dark, ugly things and therefore should be taken down forthwith and either burned or tucked away in a forgotten corner of a museum.

Walmart has already conceded, and has already pulled all Confederate-flag themed merchandise from its shelves even while it continues to sell merchandise featuring the likeness of Fidel Castro's murderous henchman Che Guevara.

How this became a Republican problem, by the way, is one of life's enduring mysteries. The Democrats invented, designed, flew, and defended the Confederate flag, but suddenly and mysteriously it has now become a Republican problem. Once again Democrats are pressuring Republicans to fix a problem they created.

But if we are going to remove symbols of oppression from our culture, why stop with the Confederate flag? By any objective measure, the rainbow flag of the Gay Reich should be next.

The homosexual lobby ran two Christian bakers, Aaron and Melissa Klein, right out of business because they politely declined to bake a cake for a sodomy-based wedding ceremony. They are now facing a $135,000 fine which could bankrupt them and leave them jobless and penniless. All in a day's work for homofascists, who are likewise working assiduously to send florist Baronelle Stutzman to the poorhouse by taking her business, her house, and everything she owns.

The bullies and bigots of Big Gay ordered the Kleins to perform labor against their will. That, as lesbian journalist Tammy Bruce pointed out, is slavery. The bullies and bigots of Big Gay ordered the Kleins to perform labor in violation of conscience, which, as Ms. Bruce pointed out, is tyranny.

In city after city and state after state, ordinances and laws are being imposed that actively and aggressively punish Christian businessmen who would take time-honored standards of human sexuality into account in business and personnel decisions.

The slaveholding South has risen again, after a fashion, only this time all the plantations are owned and operated by the Human Rights Campaign. In today's world, even if its critics are right, the Confederacy ain't got nothing on the haters in the homosexual movement.

Bottom line: if it's time for the Confederate flag to go, it's way past time for the rainbow flag to go.
