    Is that mute donkey still around?

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    the is the first thing I have heard on this issue that makes any sense. The confederate flag stood for the same thing the American flag stood for a few decades prior to the war. It only makes sense that both should be deemed "evil" in this new liberal utopia we live in.
    What an idiot, there is nothing wrong with the American flag. Farrakhan needs to check himself into a mental institution because his insanity is clearly visible by these kinds of comments.
    Wilders is a piece of gutter trash, a gutless populist who has no morality to speak of.

    The Black Loyalists would strongly disagree with you, the American flag represented slavery and bondage while the British flag represented freedom. Thousands of slaves joined the British ranks and many of them and their descendants fought for their freedom again in the War of 1812.

    If the person making that argument is either a half-wit or intellectually dishonest, then sure.

    I almost put "Don't say states rights."

    Then I removed it.

    'The American flag is just as offensive as the Confederate flag.'

    This argument strikes me as purely bizarre for a number of reasons. The Confederacy seceded to preserve slavery and while slavery existed in the US and the US government has done terrible things, it was not founded on those ideas, while the Confederacy was. Secondly, it's a matter of common sense when you consider what the two flags are associated with. Outside of a few SJWs, no one in the United States associates the American flag with racism. The confederate flag is for the majority of people, a symbol of racism. You could get into semantics over which government was more racist and debate it for days on end, but the matter stands, that symbolism only matters in terms of what people associate it with, and the Confederate flag is associated with racism by most.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
