Star Parker: Confederate flag ‘represents exact same thing’ as rainbow flag

Conservative syndicated columnist and Center for Urban Renewal and Education founder Star Parker appeared on Fox & Friends Tuesday to talk about the weekend’s tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia and President Trump’s initial response.

During her comments, Parker raised the ire of liberals for daring to compare the Confederate flag to a liberal sacred cow, the LGBT pride flag.

Defending Trump’s comments as “exactly on point,” Parker said, “There is an alt-right and there is an alt-left and this war between the two sides has been going on for an awfully long time.”

‘Today, we got our leader back!’ Coulter cheers for ‘Fighting Trump’ … ‘We were Gideon’s army without Gideon’

“We battled in the voting booth last November,” added Parker. “The alt-left lost and they’re pretty upset about it.”

The conservative author then pointed out how Nancy Pelosi and others were “exploiting an opportunity” for political gain.

“There were two sides that were escalating very rapidly,” Parker said. “You know what’s really interesting and really incredible irony here is the same people that are demanding that the Confederate flag comes down are the same people that are insisting that the rainbow flag goes up. These two flags represent the exact same thing. That certain people groups are not welcome here.”

Parker clarified in the end that, ultimately, taking away one group’s speech could logically result in the loss of free speech and assembly for all.

“So Nancy Pelosi wants to say that we’re gonna start shutting down first amendment rights of a certain group of people so what happens the next time homosexuals want to walk through a city and protesters or counterprotesters come out?”
