More and more media outlets have been suggesting that the “far-right” has taken over the American flag … especially if it’s being flown from a pickup truck. A senior writer for The Root said that “anyone who flies an American flag on a pickup truck is a whole different breed of white people.” Charlotte Clymer mused that people who “hoist giant a** American flags on their car” are probably racist.
