The Twitter hashtag #GoHomeDeray trended over the weekend as #BlackLivesMatter activist Deray Mckesson (of Ferguson, New York, Baltimore and McKinney fame) brought his toxic, race-baiting roadshow to Charleston.

The professional race agitator found, to his disappointment, a grieving community that was trying to handle last week’s tragic events with grace, love and forgiveness.
He posted images from a rally on Sunday of fellow protesters burning the American flag as black nationalist flags waved in the background.
And he made a bizarre straw-man argument when outrage ensued, as you’ll see on the next page.
Dylann Roof burned the American flag, too. Where the outrage there? pic.twitter.com/xD6ItLa0b0

I’m not even sure what he was trying to say there. He seemed to be suggesting that patriotic Americans (i.e., conservatives) have no problem with white supremacist mass-murderers burning the flag? But of course conservatives are appalled by flag burners — whether they’re white supremacists or left-wing agitators. Either Mckesson has absolutely no understanding of how the conservative mind works, or he’s trying to deflect away from an inconvenient truth. These two pictures show common ground between the far left and far right and indicate that the two extremes have more in common than they would like to admit.
This is known as the “horseshoe theory.”
