    It’s part of your cultural destruction and before you laugh, think of this. If anyone had suggested six months ago that they’d ban the confederate flag, wouldn’t they have been laughed off the forum? How about gun restrictions, mass immigration, socialised medical care . . . are they now a conspiracy theory? Your constitution hasn’t saved you from it. The constitution wasn’t designed to protect you from yourselves.

    On no official form in the UK will you find the nationality ‘English’ – there is no English anymore, although it’s still allowed to be used as a personal term. You’re either British, UK, or European citizen. The English flag, red cross with white background is banned by many local councils – apparently it upsets the minorities, as it was the flag used during the crusades and is considered a symbol of oppression, (hint - confederate flag).
    It’s all part of the shift to degrade the indigenous population culture.

    Ahhhh but it only matters what YOU think and you dont even live in SC....you live in the hippy north west where you are racist if your black tires are underinflated.
    You are on a roll today, brother. Reading through this thread what I see is a bunch of people who got what they wanted and they are STILL pissed off, probably because the South Carolinians didn't go on a crying jag.

    It's not being banned....the govt is not forcing anyone to stop flying it or not sell it. Some businesses, networks, etc have made that decision....that's their decision, based most likely on their bottom line and yeah, I think it's an over-reaction.

    But the govt isnt banning it...just removing it from govt property.

    It will be interesting to see what happens when those elections come up. Because I doubt those politicians were upholding the will of their citizens.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Not once in my entire life in the south did I see the Confederate flag flown or hear it referenced, or hear anyone say anything about our proud heritage during or before the Civil War. (Altho it's possible I saw it in a window of a pickup truck on the highway but don't remember that.)

    I think it is a symbol for SOME southerners who are extremist or maybe even white supremacy sympathizers or say they revere the flag because they don't want the liberals to win an argument (as the southerners see it). If it were really a symbol of some proud heritage in the south by a LOT of southerners, I would have heard about it or seen the flag somewhere. It seems as if this symbol thing with the flag is mainly in a two or three states, and only some of the people there.
    If you are right then none of these politicians will lose their jobs as a result of taking down the confederate flag.
