    One represents the entire country and the other one doesn't. As you should know, the entire country did not fight for slavery.

    which has nothing to do with my point.

    the slavery issue is dead and gone... nobody today is fighting for slavery or racism.... but folks are surely fighting to ban thing like flags and movies( while simultaneously saying they actually support free speech/expression)

    yes.. there's even people who want to ban "Gone with the Wind" now.... because once idiots start movements like this, there's always another idiot waiting to up the ante.

    That is liberals for you. Tragedy always results in a liberal freakout to ban something. They already tried guns and failed...so they will go for an even lower hanging fruit.

    Liberals will soon be rooting in the dirt for the next thing to ban....I assume it will be tied to global warming/climate change/whatever they are calling it this week.

    Banning by public opinion is free speech and so is protesting.

    If slavery is such a dead issue then it shouldn't a problem to take down the flag that pro-slavery was fought under, should it?
