Marine Corps commandant abolishes displays of Confederate battle flag

U.S. Marine Corps commandant General David H. Berger announced this week in a letter to all Marines that displays of the Confederate battle flag would no longer be tolerated in the Corps.

Said Berger, “I am mindful that many people believe that flag to be a symbol of heritage or regional pride. But I am also mindful of the feelings of pain and rejection of those who inherited the cultural memory and present effects of the scourge of slavery in our country.”

That is quite a political statement from an active duty military commander. His cultural analysis comes very close to PC jargon.
