‘Don’t tread on me’ flag NEXT to go? CNN producer labels Louisiana shooter radical ‘fringe’ based on flags

louisiana_shooter_featuredAnother “fringe” flag is under fire from liberals.

A CNN producer who grew up down the street from Louisiana movie theater shooter John Russel Houser describes him as a “very politically charged” man who had “fringe ideologies,” based on his flying a “Don’t tread on me” flag outside his house.

CNN producer Wes Bruer spoke with Jake Tapper on Friday about his former neighbor Houser, 59, who Bruer said lived “10 houses down” from him in Phenix City, Alabama.

Bruer described Houser as “a local activist who ran for local elections” and called him a “very paranoid man,” citing examples of how he treated political and business rivals.

When Tapper asked if Bruer heard Houser rant about any of his political views or “radical causes,” Bruer said “not openly,” but then he said this:

We do remember things like him flying a Confederate flag outside of his house, or a “Don’t tread on me” flag outside of his house, so he sort of had an inclination that he may have some sort of fringe ideologies.


First the Confederate flag was banned from public display because Charleston, South Carolina, shooter Dylann Roof was photographed with it, and now apparently displaying a “Don’t tread on me” flag indicates “fringe ideologies” leading to homicidal tendencies.

Why don’t liberals just dispense with the symbols and simply declare all conservatives to be dangerous ideologues?
