Someone over at PZ’s, in a comment, mentioned “confederate flag toilet paper.”
It sure would be interesting to go down to a NASCAR event and hawk rolls of “it’s not hate, it’s hygeine” flag paper, but that might turn fatal. NASCAR fans are not known for being subtle philosophers.
Naturally, I did a search for “confederate flag toilet paper” which took me to a page on amazn, which no longer sells confederate-flagged things, so you can only buy US flag paper.
I tell you it’s the consequences of political correctness run amok. If you want swastika toilet paper you’re equally out of luck.
Now that’s an unintended consequence I can live with!
I presume each rectangle, once used for its purpose, must be carried by four honor guards to a ceremonial pyre, and, while it burns, and Taps is played on a bugle, everyone in the neighborhood stands in rapt attention with their hands over their hearts?

@moarscienceplz: I have an honor guard. Looks like a septic tank.

@2 @3: In that case, pipes may be more appropriate than a bugle.
The only thing that comes to mind is all them poor nazi’s collectively sitting around reading this and complaining about how it violates their freeze peach rights.
TIL the way to get from sea to shining sea is via the sewage system.
I can’t help but wonder how many people buy the American flag paper because they’re big patriots without thinking through to the end. To put it delicately, some of that crowd have shown a remarkable lack of self-awareness. And this is one of those situations where a little self-awareness goes a long way. Probably even more important than 2-ply.
More of a MotoGP and F1 fan myself but in fairness NASCAR and especially some of its drivers have done some good anti-racist things here :

Although, yes the law of headlines does apply here :
Though hopefully some cultural progress is gradually being made?
