    The confederate flag didn't represent slavery either.

    Ignorance of history is no reason to change it....Oh, and also, that's a wonderful pic of southern democrats proudly showing their ass.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    'The force of events moved very quickly upon the election of Lincoln. South Carolina acted first, calling for a convention to SECEDE from the Union. State by state, conventions were held, and the CONFEDERACY was formed.

    Within three months of Lincoln's election, seven states had seceded from the Union. Just as Springfield, Illinois celebrated the election of its favorite son to the Presidency on November 7, so did Charleston, South Carolina, which did not cast a single vote for him. It knew that the election meant the formation of a new nation. The Charleston Mercury said, "The tea has been thrown overboard, the revolution of 1860 has been initiated."

    The South Secedes [ushistory.org]

    It would seem that the reason for session was the election of Lincoln, not that slavery wasn't in some people's agenda for that, but the actual reason was Lincoln....NOT the revision now being pushed by the very group, that back then were among the people calling to preserve slavery to the south....

    Ain't it great how dishonest liberals are today?

    Does that also sum up the history of the democrat party? Or does the party maybe have other merits BESIDES being opposed to civil rights and proud card carrying Klansmen?

    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.

    Do you have a link?
    Here is a Wikipedia article. They are a part of Canadian and apparently Sierra Leone history as well.

    Here is a video about a famous one named Ricahrd Pierpoint:

    I wrote this somewhere else, but I will repeat it here. I recently lived in a house built in the early 1900's with several swastikas on the foundation and inside the attic. A little digging in it's history and I learned that the German builders who built the house, prior to the rise of the Nazi party, saw the symbol as a sign of good luck. Indeed, throughout much of it's storied history, the Swastika was a positive sign used in cultures from Europe to Asia.

    Obviously more recently the symbol was used to represent the Natzi party, and they not only tried to commit genocide, but also plunged the world into war which resulted in the deaths of a lot of people.

    If I few a flag with a Swastika on it, even if it didn't have the red background, and wasn't angled at 45 degrees like the Natzi symbol and I claimed that my reason for flying it was purely for the good luck and well-being sentiment it represented for thousands of years prior to the Germans who corrupted it......

    Given that most people don't know it's origins, should I expect others to believe that I mean what I say I'm not displaying as support for Natzi Germany, but simply as a good luck symbol and that they should have to ignore the deep seeded more recent meaning it has come to represent?

    America has done terrible things in it's history, often in stark contrast to the ideals that it claims to represent, but the reality is that the American flag today still represents these ideals even if it hasn't always, or won't ever fully live up to them.

    Come on, now. Everybody knows the civil war wasn't fought over slavery. It was fought over states rights..........


    to own slaves.

    As to the moron who is the subject of the thread, all I can say is that I never thought I'd see the word "sense" attached to any of his various word vomits.
