    Yes, people don't just latch onto things to rationalize their thoughts. Something like that would never happen. Nope.

    I think you are kind of agreeing with me...

    I do not own/possess a "sarcasm detector". Therefore, it cannot be broken.

    The flag is the perfect symbol of white supremacy. It's like the swastika. Take it away and people like Roof don't feel like they are being displaced from their rightful place at the top of the food chain.

    No. That's what people with an agenda wanted...and they got it when our President and others turned a mass murder into a political issue

    So what if they were leaders and/or "a revolutionary"? They still committed MASS MURDER, all in the name of an ideology. That is exactly what the big ****-flinging is about with the Confederate flag: Ideology.


    Second difference: The latter are people. The former is a symbol.
    So? They still commited horrendous crimes. Why should they be idolized?

    A company made a choice. It was their choice to make. It was their right to make it. There is nothing that dictates they have to sell confederate merchandise. If you disagree with their decision, DONT SHOP THERE! Or at the very least buy your racist crap elsewhere. If you have money and want to buy this garbage I am sure someone will sell it to you. Why is this anymore complicated than that?

    Does the fact that he had to be mentally ill cross your mind at all?
