    I questioned why a Virginia Governor would weigh in on a SC flag display by phasing out license plates in his state showing the flag. Then I saw that Terry McCauliff is the Governor of Virginia, and I had my answer. Same old S***! No freedom of expression allowed if you disagree with him.

    LOL, if Virginia doesn't offer you the license plate of your choice, it's a war on freedom of expression? Can't you just buy a $3 bumper sticker? If that doesn't work, make your own. Paint your car. Lots of options.

    I'd go back and count the times I've acknowledged the South was nearly 100% democratic if I cared, but I don't.

    As I have already shown, Southern Democrats of the 50s and 60s were progressive big government types. Conservatism in the south took hold with Reagan, or a disillusionment with Carter, but it didn't exist before then. The reason the Souther Democrats stayed democrat was because they were progressive and Republicans weren't.
    Gosh, you're trying to reduce the politics of the South to a modern equivalent "progressive big government types" and it's just ignorant, as is the ridiculous notion that conservatism "didn't exist" in the South before Reagan.

    And I'd love to know your definitions of a "progressive" in 1950. It sure as hell isn't the same definition as in 2015. Same with "conservative." You've made up a definition in your own mind, and then concluded that your made up definition excludes white southerners before St. Ronnie.

    Assumptions based on your own bigotry are not a substitute for a sound argument.
    Ok, you could be right that KKK types affiliate with the party home to nearly all elected blacks, a black POTUS at the top, and that blacks vote for nearly 100% of the time, and also the party that is openly friendly to gays and supports gay rights. If there is one thing racists love it's the gays. Regular open arm types, live and let live in that category in my experience.....

    Remind me, what party does Louis Farrakhan vote for?
    Sorry, but I don't have any idea, or what your point is. I haven't thought about the guy for years.

    In the fo4rm of abortion, yes it is an integral part on the modern DNC. They are all about better physical and social genetics through selective breeding.
    Really? I've never heard that mentioned one time ever, not ever referred to, etc. You getting your news from Glenn Beck? Subscribe to his channel or whatever?

    I predict you're right.

    I also predict it won't do anything to reduce racism.

    It will stop people from thinking that the state endorses their racism and that's a big step in the right direction.

    The term "allegedly" is used until the alleged perpetrator is found guilty in a court of law. The use of this by shrubnose is proper in this case. The flag being inanimate does not receive the same treatment. I also think The State of Virginia must think the flag is the culprit because the state is getting rid of the flag from the license plates not the poster shrubnose.

    Stalin is considered right wing by some left wing people.

    George Orwell said that Stalin was a reactionary, which made him right wing.

    Firstly, allegedly is a legal term, not a debating term - the "alleged" murderer is already known and identified by some of the victims and he has indicated his guilt to those who arrested him. It is only left to a court to determine what level of guilt, in a criminal sense, he carries.

    Secondly, the State of Virginia does not think "the flag is the culprit", unless you believe that the highly political, former Clinton bagman, and all around scum Democrat Governor of Virginia speaks and acts for all Virginians. McAuliffe simply, fortunately for him, has the power to act alone for his personal, political reasons.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Legal term or not "allegedly" is in fact the proper term.
    The state , their Governor (whether you like him or not) most certainly think the flag had something to do with this or he would not want to remove the image from the license plate. You certainly do not know the mindset of the Governor. You can guess as you wish but know I think not.

    Well pardon me - seems you're entitled to claim what the entire State of Virginia thinks on the subject but I'm not allowed to opine on the motives of one man, the Governor. Typical.
