    Literally nobody has suggested it become illegal to fly the confederate flag. First amendment, dude. We just want the state governments in the south to stop doing it. Private citizens can fly whatever symbol of treason they like.

    Our country is so mother ****ing retarded. Banning the Confederate flag because some dip**** psychopath owned a few of them? What in the actual ****? Talk about using a tragedy for personal gain....
    Our country is banning the flag? Now that's news. News that you should prove.

    Read the article here: http://news.yahoo.com/virginia-gover...152930901.html

    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.
    why do lefties keep telling this lie?... do you think everybody else is stupid?

    I've been hoping for years that the NAACP would adopt that flag as their own and when anyone questioned it they could say.... "clearly it's about heritage and it is more deeply rooted in our heritage than with anyone else."

    It's someone's free speech to fly it. And its someone's free speech to say they don't like it.

    I wouldn't balk at the notion.... that's better than making it disappear altogether like so many idiots want.

    it's a cool flag.. a cool symbol....
    no need for it to disappear...well, except to calm the hypersensitive PC sissies who can't stop crying about it.

    Thing is about that flag is that it's history is just bull****. It's not nor has it ever been the confederate flag. The original confederate flag was red white and blue with fewer stripes but in the fog of war... in battle it was easily confused by both sides if it was a union or confederate flag so the south then changed it. And it still never was the stars and bars. The closest replica of it was a white flag with the stars and bars small and in the corner like the blue part of the American flag is now. And THAT was rebuked when it was thought it could be perceived as a surrender flag in battle.

    The confederate flag changed all the time and it was never that stars and bars outright. So the "heritage" part of that flag is just utter crap full of lies and as cool as it looks, it was adopted by the real ****nuts of our society which killed what's left of it's relevance. So flying this flag whose only heritage is being adopted by Klan members and such on government property... it's gotta go away from there IMO.

    the chilling effect... it's all the rage among lefties who know that can't directly attack other peoples rights.
    don't try to sell me that the hand-wringing sissies are just going to let other people do what they want...I wasn't born yesterday.


    It would be my advise for a person to mind their own ****ing business... but that's not going to happen anytime soon.

    but whatever.. you're so close to ending racism... just a few more confederate flags stand in the way ,my friend... good luck to ya!

    Don't you think you may be overreacting a tad here?

    the stars and bars were the 2nd national confederate flag, if I recall correctly.
    not that i care...i just like the looks of the flag..... and i think this whole bull**** flag narrative is absurd.

    but in any event.. if you want to ban things that offend your delicate sensibilities.. feel free..... it's the modern liberal way , after all.
