2018-02-08 07:45:34 UTC  

I mean, is there anything like, larpy or odd about flying a BR flag at demos

2018-02-08 07:45:50 UTC  

No, I actively encourage it.

2018-02-08 07:45:51 UTC

2018-02-08 07:45:57 UTC

what it do

2018-02-08 07:50:00 UTC  

Hey man

2018-02-08 07:51:58 UTC  

@ThatGoy Fasces is a bundle of rods surrounding an axe. Ancient symbol going back to the early beginnings of Rome. It means strength in unity, and became a prominent symbol in the Roman Empire, where Consuls would be in power while "holding fasces", and their body guards also carried them, as a symbol of the primacy of the State.

You can also see them in a wide variety of architecture throughout our civilization, and very much so in early America. Nearly all of the neoclassical elements of D.C. and elsewhere include them in some capacity.

2018-02-08 07:52:09 UTC  

Also, Mussolini used them a lot and he's pretty cool too.

2018-02-08 07:52:17 UTC  

So did Mosley. Cool as well.

2018-02-08 07:53:39 UTC  

I forgot the term, yes them.

2018-02-08 07:53:54 UTC  

Also they go as far back as the Etruscans

2018-02-08 07:54:31 UTC  

Yeah, the Romans didn't invent them. They just build a civilization that popularized them.

2018-02-08 07:55:48 UTC  

And America now sits as the cornerstone of the west, just as Rome did, in a similarly perilous state as Rome saw in its declining days. What better symbol to remind our people of than one which is as old as our civilization itself, and promotes the unity of a people and their united strength in an effort? @ThatGoy

2018-02-08 07:55:53 UTC  

Hope that clears it up for ya.

2018-02-08 07:57:04 UTC  

Pretty neat fam

2018-02-08 07:57:25 UTC  

It must have been visually striking to see a man guarded by 12 facies carrying men

2018-02-08 07:59:05 UTC  

All that weight behind an axhead would fucc things up bre
