    Protesters clash over Confederate flag outside Phoenix Walmart

    Protesters clash over Confederate flag outside Phoenix Walmart | Fox News
    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.

    The Constitution, and its amendments mean NOTHING to liberal pukes anymore....All that matters now to them, is mob rule, and how ****ty they can be to those that disagree with them.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Why do conservative Confederate supporters keep bringing up the 1st Amendment? The 1st Amendment has not been violated in any of the latest conflicts over the flag.

    And you're right, the Confederate flag is a part of our history which is why, as Obama said, it belongs in a museum.

    They do though. Couple that with your pre-k understanding of the First Amendment and its safe to say you're just lost in the weeds here.

    I guess it's you who don't understand the first amendment quite well. The first amendment implies the freedom of speech and self-expression and yet this right is being violated...

    ... How does calling a person racist violate their freedom of speech? That is what happened here, right? Two groups of people with different opinions said mean things to each other. That happens quite literally EVERY SINGLE DAY ON THIS FORUM. It's hardly a violation of anybody's speech.

    Phoenix is too hot this time of year to be protesting anything.

    Hey, will WalMart gets props from the left now for being sensitive to the Confederate flag cause?

    Of course they're clashing outside a Wal-Mart These people aren't going to clash outside a Macy's

    Because the Confederacy was so popular in 1865 Arizona.

    They do have a right to wave that flag. And as an equal exercise of free speech, folks have the right to tell them that they're racists for doing so.
