The GOP should surrender once again, this time on the rainbow flag
June 28, 2022
[The author begins by describing the changes to the homosexual “Pride” flag, which began with the colors of the rainbow, but which has been changed the last year or two by progressives to include design elements to reflect Transgender persons and other sexualities. The author says that his town is flying the old-school, traditional “Pride” rainbow flag on main street, rather than the updated version of the flag with the Trans colors, etc, in it.]
… What’s infinitely more likely, though, is that gays and lesbians have been passé since Obergefell v. Hodges was decided in 2015. Most of the left’s talking points now revolve almost exclusively around blacks and transsexuals. It’s an attempt to represent the whole progressivist movement in a single banner. That’s what “intersectionality” means. Black is queer, and queer is black.
… Couldn’t it be argued that anyone flying an old rainbow flag in 2022 is dog-whistling to the far-right?
The old rainbow flag has essentially become a reactionary symbol. What if the Republican Party claimed it as its own?
