Author “tips” press to a Confederate flag flying in Seattle; turns out to be a Norwegian flag

The “tipster,” Rebecca Morris, blames the “political climate” for her error. Her Wiki page says that in addition to being a best-selling author, she’s also a “journalist.”

Shocker, not.

From TimeA news tip earlier this week that reported a Confederate flag flying beneath an American flag in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle, Washington was discovered to be a mistake — because the red and blue-striped flag was actually a Norwegian flag.

The Seattle Times received the following tip from New York Timesbest-selling author Rebecca Morris after she believed that she saw a Confederate flag flying in her neighborhood: “Hi. Suddenly there is a Confederate flag flying in front of a house in my Greenwood neighborhood. It is at the north-east corner of 92nd and Palatine, just a block west of 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. I would love to know what this ‘means’ … but of course don’t want to knock on their door. Maybe others in the area are flying the flag? Maybe it’s a story? Thank you.”

However, a more thorough examination revealed that it was actually a Norwegian flag was flying at the house of Darold Norman Strangeland, who raised it at the start of this year’s Winter Olympicsin PyeongChang, South Korea as an homage to his Norwegian-American background — his parents emigrated to the states in the mid-1950s.

When Morris found out that she had mistaken the flags, she pointed to the current political climate as a possible reason for her mix-up.

“Maybe that’s the story,” she told the Seattle Times“We’re so stressed by all things political that we see things that aren’t there.”

  1. Amazing how liberals refuse to take responsibility and blame the “political climate” when directly confronted with their own ignorance.

  2. I would guess that the lib govt. officials will now ban Norwegian flags because they are confusing the ‘law abiding libs’ & creating an ‘uncomfortable’ atmosphere…LOL

  3. Yup, Norway, the land of the mountain monkeys, to be honest, thats coming from the Danes, witch I categorize as a tiny bit more civilized than the Sheep f….. Khazars in Norway and then I mean basically southern parts, scums like this StoltenBerg (do notice, the Berg, most of the Norse is central European khazars).

    Interesting isnt it, little Norway, an tiny country loaded with Khazars, the scum of this earth, everything Hitler was supposed to have done to uh….. sub-humans, the Norwegians did that all the way up to the 80s, just ask CIA and our “asylums” where they experimented on uh….. sub-humans, since we aren’t Khazars.

    The little country pumped millions, in fact somewhere around 100 md on Hilarious Caligula Clintonius, and that when we had an so called Labor/Left (staggering bonkers and corrupt) and when we got an so called Right uh… winged christian coalition( even more rotten an corrupt), and that sopped because of bad PR, otherwise She would have gotten more millions.

    The tiny little country is pumping millions into various Sore-ass NGOs, where the big one, an Polish Joojo run political weapon, aka the Batory Foundation, I wounder why is it so silent about that one, Polaks.
    Hungary is also attacked along with Russia etc, etc.
    Little Norway, yeah, burned Libyan children alive because they wanted our Air force to have some live practicing, yeah, like shooting fish in an barrel, like the Joos, they love to whine and have no problems with wiping out Koreans, yeah, kill em all, but dont for the love of God use the word, black.
    One thing is the perverted twisting of reality done by the Wankees MSM, but ours is even worse, much worse, its an PC-infested acid house.
    Welcome to Norway.
    The country where if you are raped, robbed or similar, the police have down prioritized this “crimes” according to our “eminent” humane Leftis/Right, because of to mush work when one is raped, so they simply just dont bother to do anything, aka legalizing rape, like Sweden and Denmark, etc, but in one case an 15 Y old Girl was raped, proven beyond doubt, but the Police, run by an Woman, dropped the rape because of lacking funds, but the same police found an image of this Girl smoking Hashish and she Got arrested, the age made her evade prison time, yeah, and fined ca. 3500 D dep on the currency rate . (I guess mu fine wold be about 35 000+/- Kr) if I get caught, and an 1-2 Months of prison term, I can expect, based upon an friends case, and loose my license to drive because I am an Junkie.
    I have nothing on my papers, complete clean, but that dont mean shit in Norway, you are an junkie.
    Norway, an land some are brain dead anuf to think is liberal, never have been,, and so far, never will be.

    Little Norway, where the worst thing you can be, isnt a rapist, pedo, killer, robber, etc, but an Hashish smoker, an DRUUUUUUG addict, an Junkie, and our land is an shit hole, inhabited with rotten scums, aka Khazars.
    I may move to Afghanistan, I think its more freedom there than here, and I am NOT joking.
    And I haven’t even talked about our really insane child protecting agency witch is based upon owners hiding in Tax havens, etc, etc.
    I guess Sweden and Finland is going down the drain as well.
