    Confederacy purge continues while last century's villians ignored

    All symbols of the Confederacy are rapidly disappearing from stores, websites and the public square in the wake of last week's racially charged shooting in a Charleston, S.C., church, but the purge of some allegedly hateful icons has spared memorabilia linked to some of history's most infamous mass murderers, some critics are charging.

    Amazon.com has now banned all Confederate battle flag items from being sold on its site, but the massive e-commerce site continues to allow the sale of dozens of apparel items featuring communist mass murderers such as Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin and Che Guevara, prompting some to accuse the site and others banning Confederate imagery of hypocrisy.

    No, let's just celebrate the fact that everybody is voluntarily rejecting this symbol of racism and treason.

    Oh come on. More people associate the Confederate flag with the Dukes of Hazzard than they do with racism. It is a rebel flag. Don't fall for the PC purge.

    Sad thing is I can hear my granddaddy turning over in his grave right now. He warned me for years that this kind of thing was gonna happen, and he was sadly right. Of course someone forgot to tell Mitch McConnell that there is at least one monument to President Davis that he cannot get his paws on. I know where it is also.

    How about a nice Nazi souvenir knife from Amazon? Cheap too...

    It's not like they were racist toward black people. Oh, wait...

    American history is American history and covering it up will not help anyone, but go ahead and be a bunch of pussies and make it impossible to buy a certain pattern on cloth. All it does is make you look like cowards though.

    The later is not something I care about and the former isn't entirely true.

    So tired of hearing this. Prove that they were traitors and that all of them were racist. Show me one single court case of someone convicted for treason that served under that flag. Prove that every single person that fought under that flag was racist.

    It's a marketing craze right now, I wouldn't be too upset over it. Amazon is still selling WWII German uniforms and officer's hats etc. It'll all go away with time.
