“But on June 6, as the strikers stormed the nation’s most valuable ballot box, wavingOld Glory,’ the memo came: the American flag is a substitute,” Gray wrote in an article for MarketWatch, referring to the presence of American flags during the Capitol assault. Gray then gave his opinion on the flag, which is a successful combination of Democratic views, such as granting statehood to the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, with politically correct views on the skin color of his fellow citizens. Jack Davis is a freelance writer who has worked for the Western Journal since July 2015 covering the campaign leading up to President Donald Trump’s election. “President Biden, Mrs. Harris and members of Congress: the American flag was hijacked as code for a certain belief,” he said. “What if the stripes weren’t white? What if there had been 52 stars, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico? What if the stars were the colors of each of us – the color of your skin and mine – like the melanin scale? The blue square symbolizes vigilance and perseverance, and the red stripes symbolize courage. Singer Macy Gray compared the American flag to the Confederate flag in an article denouncing the current flag design.
