On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld reacted to calls for the Confederate flag to be removed from South Carolina statehouse grounds.

"I'm still trying to figure out how removing a Confederate flag would have prevented the Charleston massacre," Gutfeld said. "The flag didn't kill those people. A ghoul did. But we now must care about this issue, for the media is beating the drum."

Gutfeld asserted that if Republicans don't weigh in on this issue, then they are labeled as racists.

"But as much as I hate the left's need for sowing division, I must admit that the flag is literally sewed division," he stated. "People claim it means different things to different people, but it harkens back to the pro-slavery side. And if it upsets the victims' families, that's enough for me."

Gutfeld said that it's hard to stop evil. He pointed out that Dylann Roof's friends allegedly said he chose to target a church instead of a school because of security.

"So, if you take him at his racist words, then take him at his calculated plan. He picked a place without guns," Gutfeld said. "No flag reduction would have stopped this loser from murdering the defenseless."
