    You're opposing the symbol of "Democrat" racism by flying that symbol on the state house grounds? How does that work?

    And I always love right wingers essentially telling blacks they're too stupid to realize the party they vote for 90+ percent, that includes probably 95% or more of all elected black legislators, is the REAL racist party. Gosh, it's a wonder the GOP isn't doing all that well with its minority outreach with that sound message. "Hey, idiots, you're doing it wrong!"

    no, i don't ignore that history... I'm saying don't allow that history to have power.



    What I said is if people want to broadcast that they are racists or idiots, it's up to them. I'd find broadcasting either one a "problem" - maybe you wouldn't.
    no, i don't have a problem with people broadcasting their idiocy... i see Obama bumper stickers everywhere, but you don't see me whining about it
    racists suck... and you're not going to change that by going of half cocked about flags.... it's an empty gesture to make you feel good without actually doing anything.



    Right, and it was the Federal government under that flag that forcibly ended that regime.
    that's true as well... and it's true the US flag flew over much worse evils for a much longer time period.
    but i understand consistency isn't in the cards for flag-haters.



    Right, and that includes state sanctioned and enforced at the point of a gun racism through the 1960s.
    also under the US flag.

    there's no way around it dude...you'e put all the power into a single flag , backed by racists asshats...
    we could treat it like the US flag and use it to honor more honorbale principles..... but that doesn't seem likely to happen when people are wholly invested in their backwards ways.



    You just cannot address that the flag was raised by "racist dirtbags" who occupied the highest state offices in SC in 1960s. That is a big part of why the flag means what it does. It was flown by ELECTED LEADERS as they fought the feds imposing equal rights for blacks.
    that's nice... it's 2015 now.... kindly point out which racist elected officials are condoning state sanctioned racism and/or slavery.

    I reject the racist meaning of the flag entirely...and i still like the flag..... it's quite easy to do, in fact.... it's liberating not to be held under the power of degenerates... it's easy to say to the dirtbags" you have no power over anything.. you're irreverent"

    or we can go the other way , like we are now.... knee jerk overreactions over some ignorant racist asshole murderer.

    I predict that the same thing will happen in other states in the near future and that all states will stop mandating display of the Confederate flag.


    No one is going to stop anyone from personally displaying it, but the states will stop doing it.

    Wait and see.
    Virginia has another problem the Governor cannot fix. They have a state law that protects war monuments which leaves confederate flags flying on government owned property on which many of these memorials sit and the state or local officials cannot do anything about it unless the law is repealed.

    well, i guess you could ask them... though i'd probably advise you to mind your own business when other people are engaged in lawful activities.
    Instead of producing confusion, maybe another idea is for the "Southern Heritage" types to choose a different symbol? Just a though....

    ...then the terrorists win.... good job surrendering to racist dirtbags who pollute honorable southern heritage.
    LOL. If they won anything they won the battle for an historical relic that was associated with state sponsored racism for many decades. Good riddance.

    And polluting honorable southern heritage is embracing remnants of that racist past without acknowledging and explicitly rejecting the centuries of oppression that are an integral part of that heritage.

    Never said I flew it or even condoned flying it, I'm a Unionist. I am only pointing out that Slavery, segregation, Jim Crow laws, Japanese internment camps and racially targeted abortions are all the proud history of the Democratic Party.

    Yeah...that will make a lot of people feel better until another nut-job walks into a church full of unarmed and defenseless citizens.

    What will we remove from flagpoles and license plates when that happens?

    Not so.

    Here in Florida where we have about 120 specialty tags and here's the good part...

    Specialty plates cost $15 to $25 a year above the standard registration fee.

    In 2013, more than 137,000 specialty tags were sold and 1.2 million were renewed, creating revenue of nearly $34 million, according to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

    The money the tags generate goes to charities, such as the Tampa Bay Estuary Program, that are affiliated with the plate’s themes.

    “The tag has been absolutely incredible for us,” said Ron Hosler, program administrator, referring to the Estuary Program’s “Tarpon” tag.

    It’s made $1.5 million for the organization since 2001, including about $120,000 last year.

    Well, no duh. The Democrats are Evil. We all know that, and are single handedly responsible for all the ills of this great country. And it is the same party now as it was then which is why blacks vote 90% or more for the racist party, because they're too stupid to know that the party they align with is racist. Good points all.

    BTW, slavery, segregation, and Jim Crow was ultimately the proud history of white southern conservatives. Nearly 100% of democrats in the non-CSA states voted for the CRA and VRA. Nearly 100% of racist white southern democrats (that is nearly all those elected to national offices) voted against.

    Well, the obvious answer is for everyone to go armed at all times in every place including obviously church services, so we can prevent shootings with a 0.00000001% chance of happening. WWJD? Pack his Glock!

    I guess you believe Hitler and fascism weren't on the right end of the political spectrum.
