It wasn’t until this past Fourth of July weekend that I learned about the disgusting perversion of Old Glory’s original incarnation. The American flag of the original 13 colonies, Betsy Ross’ sensation of a creation, is now being utilized by hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and Neo-Nazis.

What? Why? Huh? Are you joking? As a massive American Revolution nerd, who is enthralled by all things pertaining to patriotism, how did I miss this?
