    Well then, you explain how it is that until that stupid facebook photo came out of this mentally imbalanced young man holding a Confederate flag...Before that the conversation was centered on this young man's own racism, his mental illness, etc.

    Then after that photo, the progressive grievence mob took over with all the venom, and emotional appeal they could muster, and by using the old "when did you stop beating your wife...?" approach toward politicians who they thought wouldn't go along, they succeeded in subverting the will of the people by proxy of threat of labeling....It is not American how this was done.

    Not really. This was at best a lowest-key issue, and generally, not an issue at all. Until the media needed controversy to report on, and the survivors of the Church screwed them up with all that love and forgiveness stuff.

    As far as the stereotype and emotion... I'd say that comment says more about the author than the speaker
    not really. I didn't get on national television and make myself look like an over-emotional basket case.

    I watched this live in a room full of people. They were laughing at her. Because she was making herself look foolish.

    like the business quote about the genders- An assertive man is a strong leader, a strong assertive woman is a bitch...
    assertive men can be a-holes, and assertive women can be b-tches when they choose to run over others. That doesn't really have any bearing here, but sure, okay .

    Most Americans, north and south, disapprove of flying the Confederate flag

    Your own poll shows almost exactly what mine does....That your choice is to focus on a totally different part of the polling, and therefore miss the point completely is not my problem, rather it is yours.

    You don't see angry mobs of Americans protesting in the streets over the removal of a symbol that was out in front of the march to preserve the institution of human trafficking and slavery. You'll just have to get use to the fact that you won't be able to drive by the SC capitol and feel the pride of the South welling up inside of you anymore.

    Is that all you have Montecresto? Ad hom, and appeal to emotion? Both sides of the argument were represented during this whole thing. I guess you only see what you wish to see.

    This should have been done a long time ago. This kids association with the flag and what he promoted is as representing just provoked the conversion. The flag becoming a focus is a by product of this incident

    No, it's a byproduct of liberals finding something to latch onto to continue their fight against the confederate flag. It has nothing to do with the kid, racism, slavery, or the meaning behind the flag, but with liberals hatred towards a flag.

    You are able to make that statement Henrin (that something is being made out of nothing) only because you don't have a personal connection to what this flag represents and are clearly lacking the insight one gains from having even the slightest shred of empathy towards others.

    Yeah I know, I'm an uncaring jerk.

    It is however true that liberals have been attacking the flag with the same kind of rhetoric that we saw after the shooting for decades. In reality nothing changed about the debate at all except that nine people were killed by some crazy dude that was racist and liked the flag. It was just more of the nonsense tactic always used by the left that when something horrible happens it's best to use it to get one of your political goals accomplished.
