    It sounds a little like you're saying you prefer YOUR propaganda over his. You can battle all you want over what is the accurate history of the evolution of the KKK and never agree. So why battle? The real concern is ... what does it represent today. Well, ref your post #25-
    No it actually started by Scotsmen in the South, fed up with the fact that the South had no protection after the war. See the Scottish call themselves clans, so they banded together to be the ones to protect the South because the police of the time weren't doing squat. When they were no longer needed, the KKK was disbanded, only to be hijacked in the 1960's into the racist bunch we know today

    You don't think that source might be a little, I don't know.....bias?

    It's a free speech issue and nothing more. We have overcome a lot in this country and should be proud of what we have accomplished. These symbols of our past serve, in some respects, to remind us of where we have been and that we need not go there again.

    We should definitely do the "progressive" thing and remove certain words from Mark Twain's books.

    I understand your point. But I would no sooner display my 80's coif. Let's bury that mistake...shall we? Lesson learned. We all incorporate what we've learned and move on. There is no need to "remind"

    I think clinging to the past and the "good ole days" is ultimately destructive and really ...pretty self serving. It's not about editing it's about evolving.

    Amazing, you "progressives" are quite a unique bunch of fascists. Never change.
