    But it's not political correctness. It's the right thing to do, and it's done. Btw, the SC legislature is very heavily republican, and they took that flag down.

    But the govt isnt banning it...just removing it from govt property.
    Same as the UK, I thought it was a blanket ban though, so my mistake. I do think a ban will follow in the not too distant future.

    Actually Georgia still has the Confederate flag flying high. Most people don't realize it though. Georgia's new flag download.jpg First Confederate National Flagstars-and-bars-flag.jpg

    I dont think so. Is it illegal to fly a Nazi flag or display the swastika? I dont think that was ever banned.

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong

    Yes, I'm afraid you're wrong. In some countries it is not only illegal to fly a Nazi flag, but even denying the holocaust happened is a criminal offence - and they do prosecute.

    Inciting racial hatred. This Aussie guy made a youtube video where he went to a kosher grocery store, having a go at them about Palestine. I think he complained about them on previous videos. He went to jail for three years. I think he hooked up with an american lady on Stormfront and went over there to live with her.

    Anyway, if you want to critisize someone for their race here, do it privately. Don't try to convince other people of your views, just tell a person of a different race what you think of them. And even then be prepared for a **** storm.

    In the US? I know it's illegal in Germany.

    Not in the U.S., in ''some countries''. The U.S. still has free speech, as do their forums.

    Yes of course.

    I was referring to the confederate war flag. I think that John Ellis Bush did the same thing in Florida about the same time as Georgia.
