    Did the South fly the American flag before or during the Civil War? Because that's where most of the slaves were....




    The North seemed to only have a problem with slavery when the South wanted to secede.
    So you've never heard of the Missouri Compromise or the Kansas wars where the South tried to expand slavery?

    Here's a cartoon of the South trying to shove slavery down the throats of free soilers in Kansas....





    This 1861 cartoons depicts the South racing off a cliff to secede....



    Close up of the above cartoon...

    Yes. Yes.

    Yet another madman went nuts and killed some people in the US, such a rare event...



    But this time we will get even....we're going to punish a flag.

    Oh, that's gonna work.

    It was treason, it was the failed rebellion of a (potential) nation, and one of the reasons that war was fought was indeed to retain the right to keep people as property.

    If people want to invest it with other properties, that's fine. That's their right, but to deny that it also means some very valid, *factual* things to others is ridiculous.

    What I also think is ridiculous is that states continued to fly that flag and yet still take plenty of $$$$$$$ from the feds. Kind of an immature denial, like 'you can make us comply but we dont have to like it!'

    By no means do I think it should be removed everywhere, esp not from historical sites. It's an important part of our history.

    If that flag hadn't been there, he would have lived in peace and harmony with his fellow man. I wonder just how many trips to the state capital a choir boy like Dylann Roof took in his lifetime to see this flag that apparently sent him some sort of subliminal messages or something.

    The flag didn't have anything to do with what he did. The flag symbolizes his motivations; it's not that hard to comprehend.

    There was a guy in New York once said a dog made him kill people, they named him Son of Sam.

    How come dogs weren't banned?

    I'm waiting for the Japanese Americans who were captured and jailed and deported and whose lives were ruined by FDR to demand that the FDR Drive be renamed.

    150 years plus no one killed influenced by that flag. One guy does it to Obama's people and there has to be a national crisis, a tear filled gnashing of teeth on the floor of the state house.....lest it happen again in the next 150 years.
