Have you seen that Massachusetts state flag lately? Or the seal or patch on a State Trooper and thought to yourself ” wow I’m offended”? Maybe not you, but of course somebody has to be .
The flag has been around since 1898. I would say it has had a fairly quite life. Until some uptight liberal person needed a new target to complain about. Honestly, this Indian guy doesn’t look like he is have a bad day. But what is the real meaning? According to Wikipedia ” the flag of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts displays, on both sides, the state coat of arms centered on a white field. The shield depicts an Algonquian Native American with bow and arrow; the arrow is pointed downward, signifying peace. The arm itself is of Myles Standish[ and signifies the philosophy that one would rather lose their right arm than live under tyranny. A white star with five points appears next to the figure’s head, signifying Massachusetts’ admission as the sixth U.S. state. A blue ribbon surrounds the shield, bearing the state motto Ense Petit Placidam, Sub Libertate Quietem (“By the Sword We Seek Peace, But Peace Only Under Liberty”). Above the shield is the state military crest: the bent arm holding a broadsword aloft. The sword has its blade up, to remind that it was through the American Revolution that liberty was won. “ It has a meaning behind it, did not see that one coming. They just saw the Indian.
So we are right back to it has an Indian so it must be offensive, just like like everything in this state Indian related. Except Elizabeth Warren, she pretended to be an Indian for 30 something years and got re-elected. . The same people voting for her are the ones crying about the flag.
Imagine this. The pilgrims come over on the Mayflower and the first people they run into in the new world are everything offends me liberals.
They would be back in England in no time telling the Queen ” save yourself a trip, nothing there”.
I get it, they are running out of things to cry about. But Northampton will always find a way. This is Rep. Lindsay Sabadosa (D-Northampton), She filed the bill in the state house.
I bet my coffee offends this woman. In reality, nobody has complained about this flag until you fine people needed something to be offended by. Have you heard of a thing called history? You can’t change it, no matter how much you cry. I looked at this flag for an hour and read the meaning behind it and, brace for it, did NOT get offended in anyway. Of course, who actually looks at the state flag? Lets put a MAGA hat on the Indian and cause their heads to exploded from the screaming they will do.
