Crisis Averted: Philadelphia Removed Mississippi Flag Ahead of DNC. I'm Sure you Can Guess Why

Attendees of the Democratic National Convention were spared being triggered by the collection of state flags that dot Philadelphia’s broad street. Apparently, some progressives took umbrage over the Mississippi flag being displayed on the street due to its confederate emblem prior to the start of the convention.

Fox5 reported that police arrived and told the crowd of 50 or so demonstrators that they couldn’t climb the lamppost to remove the flag, the crowd then heckled the officers—telling them to think for themselves. Funny since that’s not what police officers do—they ensure that people are obeying the law.

But fear not, my delicate social justice warriors—the city will remove the flags. So, no more crying; no more trigger warnings—and there’s no need to run to a safe space to shield yourself from an inanimate piece of cloth representing the flag of Mississippi residents and fellow Americans. The enemy is now gone.
