People buying Confederate flags in droves

(Newsweek) You can’t buy a Confederate flag from Amazon, Etsy or Walmart, but they’re available at Alabama Flag & Banner, which claims to be the only U.S.-based company manufacturing the rebel flag.

The Huntsville, Alabama, store has seen an uptick in orders over the past few weeks in the wake of clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that unfolded after a group of white nationalists fought the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, according to an exclusive report out Wednesday from AL.com.

“Everybody’s got a different reason” for purchasing a Confederate flag from the retailer, owner Belinda Kennedy told AL.com. “By and large, I think people are afraid they may not be able to get it one day.”
