It's a habit they established with the swastika itself, after all.

So why wouldn't their would-be heirs try to pervert the flags their enemies fought under? That report of the "Proud Boys" disrupting the indigenous ceremony at that statue in Halifax was a clue, going by the flags *they* carried:

I am remembering there's a superhero created by Scott Chantler called the Red Ensign for the True Patriot anthology comic now being carried with new stories by Chapterhouse comics. Before he officially attached his name and design to that copyright inevitability, a few others played with similar thoughts over the decades. I can't imagine he'll be any more thrilled than the Royal Canadian Legion's membership...and the latter are not thrilled at all by this attempt at grand theft symbology.

There was a Klan rally down in the South some place over the weekend, and 50 of them showed up. 1,000 counter-protestors also showed up.

I told my wife that regardless of Trump winning, he's ripped the scab off of this steaming pile of humanity and now they've elected to make themselves visible. The question is whether they'll change their ways after seeing how massively unpopular their ideology is. Certainly a percentage of them will remain fecking idjits.

Y'know, as the Red Ensign has an actual functioning government behind it, mightn't there still be regulations about its use?
