Welcome to the latest edition of Asshat of the Week. This is where I find an asshat and let the entire universe know–asshat included–that they are a flaming asshat. This week’s asshat is Cameron Myers.
Now, you’ve probably heard about the “Confederate uprising” at a Michigan school. Well, now we know the reason: a black girl snatched a
snowflake’s white boy’s Confederate rag flag. But it gets better. You see, all those Confederate protesters are all upset that they’ve been portrayed as racist by the media–nevermind that the flag they’re flying is racist, but whatever, think of the poor marginalized white boys–but that their flag is also historical. Or something. Directly from the mouth of the jackass himself (emphasis mine):
“Myers said the flag represented “a country boy thing” to him and his friends, and he told a reporter the symbol has been “part of American history” since the founding of the U.S.”
I do not say this lightly. But you are a damn fool idiot, Myers. Get your stupid, ignorant ass back to school and PAY SOME DAMNED ATTENTION IN YOUR UNITED STATES HISTORY CLASS. Because PRIMUS!
Where do I start? No, seriously, where the hell do I begin unpacking this much stupid? Do I begin with the fact that the Confederate flag was created by a bunch of traitors who wanted nothing to do with the Union? Do I start with the fact that the Confederate flag was created in 1861, which is decades after the founding of this nation? Do I mention the fact that Confederate citizens were not patriotic Americans? Or do I just skip all that and go straight to the obvious? Because I couldn’t get my head that far up my ass if I tried.
You know, I keep hearing people complaining about the Parkland kids. No one’s complaining about this ignorant douche-billy. I hardly think that’s fair. So congrats, Cameron. When you graduate, you’ll be handed a large, foam rubber ass to place over your cap, so the world can see how much of an ignorant asshat you truly are.
