Mediaite posts some photos of the man it identifies as Wade Michael Page, the Sikh temple gunman, in his rock band's rehearsal space. There's one in front of a German eagle design that was used by the Nazis, one in front of a large, traditional swastika flag, and one of him in front of the flag of the Confederate States of America.
Seeing as how he's not Southern, the Stars and Bars aren't exactly part of his heritage. But I thought the people who supported continuing to hoist the standard above certain state capitol buildings say that that's all the flag is, a symbol of heritage. Huh. How do we square this? You don't suppose the Confederate flag appeals inherently to racists, do you?
