    you're stuck on a meaning of a symbol from a bygone era.... choosing to believe it has the same exact meaning as it once did.
    To racist dirtbags everywhere, there is no doubt it has the exact same meaning it had in the 1940s through the 1960s at least....

    There's a problem flying a banner off your car or on state house grounds that would look just fine and is welcomed on the pickup of a Klansman.

    slavery and racism are no longer part of that state.. and haven't been for a very very long time.... yet some choose to refuse to see that, instead choosing to pretend nothing has changed since 1864.
    LOL, of course racism is still a problem. Sure, lots has changed and for the better, but we're not there yet.

    And you say, "very, very long time" but as recently as my lifetime (1960s) the state leaders fought to maintain Jim Crow.

    as has been pointed out , the US flag has flown over some of history's worst atrocities, and yet no one chooses to assign those atrocities to that flag... even though the were worse and longer lasting than anything that happened under the stars and bars.

    correctly, imo, other, more positive, meanings are assigned to the US flag.. freedom, liberty, democracy, glory, honor.. etc..... yet simple minded whiners are incapable of doing so with the star and bars, choosing instead to stay stuck in the 1860's as if that meaning is all it ever can hold.
    Not the 1860s, the 1960s. Big difference.

    And when did the confederate flag stop standing for white supremacy and the opposition to civil rights, which is what it stood for when it was raised onto the state capital in the 1960s? 1971? 1985? 1997? It still stands for white supremacy to racist dirtbags, same as it did to elected leaders in the 1950s and 1960s, so I guess the dirtbags didn't get the memo.

    now you're getting it... they are celebrating southern heritage... not racism... not slavery.

    not sure if you've got the memo... but racism and slavery aren't cool with many people at all...even in the south.

    Not all who fly that flag are white racist, but pretty much all white racists fly that flag.

    Thread tl;dr

    This may have already been stated.

    The Texas legislature recently killed a bill that would have allowed the stars and bars as a Texas license plate option.

    We have so many different plates to choose from now that when I'm out driving I think that everyone is from another state.

    No, the Republicans are opposing the symbol of Democrat racism. Democrats only started pretending they like black people 40 years ago, and that seems to only be a ruse used to coax black people into aborting half of a generation of black children under the guise of improving their financial future... while driving them into welfare dependence.

    why do i care what racist dirtbags think?... why do you give them power over you?

    There's a problem flying a banner off your car or on state house grounds that would look just fine and is welcomed on the pickup of a Klansman.
    and i thought you were fine with individuals flying the flag?... now you're saying there's a probolem wit hit.




    LOL, of course racism is still a problem. Sure, lots has changed and for the better, but we're not there yet.
    we'll be there when all the confederate flags are gone....

    And you say, "very, very long time" but as recently as my lifetime (1960s) the state leaders fought to maintain Jim Crow.
    ahh yes.. the jim crow laws... horrible crap.
    the US flag flew proudly over the country while they were in effect... but that's none of my business.



    Not the 1860s, the 1960s. Big difference.
    not according to whiners whining about the flag...it's all about the civil war, slavery. and racism.

    And when did the confederate flag stop standing for white supremacy and the opposition to civil rights, which is what it stood for when it was raised onto the state capital in the 1960s? 1971? 1985? 1997?

    and we all know racist dirtbags have all he power to decide what everything means to everyone.

    I reject that bull****... racist dirtbags are nothing... stop giving them power... stop letting them dictate your world to you.

    Powerrob had a great idea .. for the NAACP to adopt the flag..... it's a much better idea that running around screaming racism ( yeah, everyone is tired of idiots constantly screaming racism) and wanting to burn flag, take them down and make them disappear.

    but I guess it's hard work to be smarter than racist dirt bags, so we'll act like children instead.

    Who is 'they'? The KKK flying that flag? I guess when I see someone with the flag I'm obligated to ask - are you a racist or just proud of your southern heritage?

    not sure if you've got the memo... but racism and slavery aren't cool with many people at all...even in the south.
    Yeah, I live here, I know that. So decent people don't fly symbols associated for decades through today with slavery and racism. Pretty easy!

    It's pretty simple - the flag was raised by ELECTED LEADERS in defiant protest against civil rights for blacks. I don't give a **** what it means to racist dirtbags if the flag didn't also mean the same thing to elected leaders in the 1960s. You want to pretend that history doesn't exist.

    and i thought you were fine with individuals flying the flag?... now you're saying there's a probolem wit hit.
    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.

    ahh yes.. the jim crow laws... horrible crap.
    the US flag flew proudly over the country while they were in effect... but that's none of my business.
    Right, and it was the Federal government under that flag that forcibly ended that regime.

    not according to whiners whining about the flag...it's all about the civil war, slavery. and racism.
    Right, and that includes state sanctioned and enforced at the point of a gun racism through the 1960s.

    and we all know racist dirtbags have all he power to decide what everything means to everyone.
    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.

    "they " being the non-racist, slavery opponents.... you know, the vast majority of people..
    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.

    ...then the terrorists win.... good job surrendering to racist dirtbags who pollute honorable southern heritage.
