    So it's finally happening. Now the confederate flag supporters are openly called racist. What's coming next? Jailing for waving American flags? Calm down a bit, liberals. The confederate flag is a part of our history. We need to start a 'Save the confederate flag' campaign to draw attention to the first amendment violation. People must have a right to wave whatever flag they want.
    That is true and you have shown no government attempt to stop that "free expression" activity. People also have the right to call you (or anyone else) a racist, bigot or any manner of moron. The 1A prevents the government from limiting your speech - it does not demand that private citizens will not become upset, express opposing views or even call you names.

    And you're right, the Confederate flag is a part of our history which is why, as Obama said, it belongs in a museum.
    Is Obama right on everything, and anything that comes out of his mouth?

    Again I ask: If a KKK member decided to bring an AK-47 to that clash and opened fire on anti-flag demonstrators would the Democrats chastise the anti-flag demonstrators for provoking the KKK?

    Well, in a political atmosphere that seems geared to shutting down speech that some people find offensive it seems that you no longer have a right to call people racist, bigot or moron. Your only free speech right moving forward is the right to report offenders to the thought police.

    That's just the point. These lumps in the lumpenproletariat are NOT liberals. They are the very opposite of liberal, and many of them despise this country and its Constitution.

    Long live the American flag, and long live the Stars and Bars.

    It is that same idiot who organized the mosque protest (which had more counter protesters). He then tried to do a gofundme right afterwards in a shameless attempt to cash in.

    The confederate flag is part of the history of a failed attempt by an upstart nation to overthrow the United States of America.

    It is a flag of losers.

    Calling someone racist isn't violating anyone's 1st amendment.

    A private company deciding not to sell something that offends people isn't violating anyone's first amendment.

    Taking down a flag from government property isn't violating anyone's first amendment.
