Norwegian flag removed by Michigan B&B owners over Confederate flag mix-up

The owners of a bed and breakfast in Michigan had to remove the Norwegian flag from the front of their inn after numerous people confused it with the Confederate flag. Greg and Kjersten Offbecker said that the flag was deterring people from visiting the inn, who mistook it for the Confederate flag. ’They would see it and make this judgment’, Kjersten Offbecker said.

Well to be fair, I have a hard time differentiating the Antifa flag from the Isis flag. Very similar.

that's sad that those who rightly object to the Confederate flag don't bother to take the time to identify it properly. they're not helping by being as equally reactionary as conservatives.
