The Washington Post's Susan Brooks: "War by Other Means" and the Confederate Flag in Front of the White House on October 13, 2013

Susan Brooks: The October 13, 2013 Anti-Obama Rally in Washington, D.C.

"American politics today, however, is the reverse of the Clausewitz analysis.  American politics is now the continuation of ‘war by other means.’ This became crystal clear when Michael Ashmore of Hooks, Texas, waved a confederate flag in front of the White House at a demonstration. As Jonathan Capehart wrote, that flag is 'a symbol of Southern resistance and white supremacy'  and it was 'unfurled in front of the home of the first black president of the United States.'"
