    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    And funny how this sense of indignation magically popped up over night. A month ago a significant portion of America didnt get a **** about confederate monuments or the confederate flag.

    False. Everything about the CF has been repulsive to many of us all along. The difference is that some racists punk has brought it to a head with his completely unprovoked murder of nine beautiful people. Get on the right side of this.

    I live in Lee County, Florida named for a defeated Confederate General that never set foot here. There's a large portrait of him in the commissioners meeting room too. The south is littered with these remnants of sour grapes. It is only natural to wonder why they still persist but it has nothing to do with getting rid of the banner of segregation from State land. It will pass but if a few of these monuments to stupidity are taken down because the local community decides to, who is it hurting and what right do you have to resist it? A democratic society has the right to determine what they want memorialized and the Civil war is not immune.

    Nope, no affiliation whatsoever. There's not enough difference in the two to affiliate with either.

    That simply is not true, you are exploting a horrible tragedy to advance a political agenda that people would not have supported otherwise

    Sure there is.....even the Democrat Kirsten Powers points out the difference with the Leftists having the Illiberals as their backbone and shock troops. Their version of the US Marines HardCorp.....well at least in their minds.

    Not that you will see them on any front lines, tho.
