    Who said I disagree that it was a horrible part of our history, but it was that. PART OF OUR HISTORY! This attempt to whitewash it by doing away with the Confederate flag is futile, IMHO. This is where you make a mistake in attributing to me, the character you want to impose on me because it is easier for you to argue...

    This is why you never let liberals win....you give them an inch and they want the whole 8.


    Gun owners learned this a long time ago. No compromise.

    Lets be clear. Conservatives are giving an inch on racism. That is where they've planted their ideological flag, so to speak.

    Am I reading you correctly?

    Unnecessary PC douchebaggery and the emotional retard logic that surrounds it.

    It would appear that the party of Lincoln wants to white wash the history and portray it as less horrific than it was. Nobody wants to do away with the confederate war flag either. It must be kept, in a museum where it belongs, as a reminder of how ugly humanity can be, and hopefully a deterrent for the future. But you want to keep it proudly displayed in prominence. This makes no sense whatsoever, unless, along with the rest of the racist bigots, you are indeed proud of what that flag stood behind. And let's not forget that after a lengthy hiatus, that flag was ran back up the pole again 54 years ago to tell the pro civil rights crowd "**** you"

    That's not what I said, though nice try. I answered your very stupid question about whether or not somebody should be able to come into your home and destroy a photograph on the wall of somebody that they don't like. Funny you thought you really had an accurate comparison with that silly analogy.

    Oh it's apt....The problem you have is that you think you can do that type of thing, but heaven forbid anyone else do so....typical.
