    Not any more than England saw us as "traitors" to the crown.

    the confederate purge has done nothing to rid america of the flag,infact specialty sites still sell them,and in the last week i have seen more of the rebel flag than ever before.just like guns and ammo,the scare of a ban or rejection boosted sales,even to people who had no interest before,suddenly wanted it because they were afraid they couldnt buy it.

    Stop it. That flag has been around for 150 years and all of the sudden there is all this phony moral outrage and it has to be banned from sight. You need to resist the PC cleansing of history.

    So it bans anything related to the Confederacy, yet has no problem selling replicas of uniforms from a dictatorship that tried to, among other things, annihilate an entire ethnic group

    The Confederate Flag fight has been strictly symbolic, but that doesn't negate it. We have to come to terms with country's racist past, including racist symbolism. Read more at Why Symbols Matter | Sam Hillestad

    So you think the only flag that flew over legalized slavery in the USA is the Confederate flag?

    Because more customers are upset by confederate flags right now than Che t-shirts.

    Don't think there was ever any motivation besides profit.

    Yes. Because right now that's what the market wants.

    Such a ridiculous and loaded demand. There were likely SS infantrymen who themselves were not anti-semitic, but the goals they advanced certainly were. Similarly, the leaders of the Confederacy and its individual states swore to fight for the subjugation of blacks and the US government, individual exceptions notwithstanding. Insisting that one prove such a thing is just transparent apologism.

    No, it was the only flag that represented the faction that fought and died attempting to perpetuate the institution of slavery. If I had a nickel for everytime I've seen this phony, half-ass argument I'd be posting from a Yacht.
