    Still Stalin removed all monuments and everything else to past leaders when he took over. The US is fast becoming that way, especially with the current firestorm over a flag that did not kill anyone.

    The nutcase is behind bars and no one is erasing history. It shall be known in history that you were fooled from England and France to secede from USA that caused so many lives.
    Tell ya what, read The South Was Right, then come back. It is obvious you had a crappy US history teacher.

    The South was wrong,the South lost the Civil War, all the slaves were freed and you can throw your Confederate money in the trash because the South will never rise again.

    Wait and see.

    The "crybabies" are the flag's defenders. They can still fly in on their pickups or motorcyles or cars and signal to the rest of the world they are some combination of jerk/racist/ignoramus.

    And I didn't say the business community "started" anything. But the Chamber of Commerce in Columbia voted unanimously (as I recall) to support the flag's removal. It was just bad for business in the state of SC. I'm sure they tired of explaining that, "No, this symbol we raised in defense of Jim Crow in the 1960s really is not, promise, really, we mean it, a symbol of racism or white supremacy. It's a symbol of Southern Heritage but NOT the racist Jim Crow stuff or the slavery stuff that was integral to almost our entire existence as a state! Really! We loves our black neighbors here!"

    You don't know that. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it after all.

    Stalin!!

    LMAO. Right wingers just love being the poor, poor victims. "Our poor wittle flag came down...Woe is us. We's victims of the libruls...boo hooo...Just like STALIN!!"

    And the tone deafness is just amazing. There is no apparent concern about the ACTUAL oppression of slavery, followed by 100 years of Jim Crow, both regimes defended under that flag. No, the real injustice is that the flag the oppressors flew is coming down off a memorial on state property, but with all rednecks proud of their "Southern Heritage" (except for slavery and Jim Crow obviously!) free to fly it on their cars, houses, motorcycles, pick ups, key chains, t-shirts, thongs, bras, etc.....

    That's a good point, and a big reason why that flag rightfully came down and is hopefully on its way to the trash bin of history, seen only alongside "Whites Only" signs and the like in museums. Celebrating "Southern Heritage" without recognizing that an integral part of almost that entire history was characterized and based on slavery followed by the systemic and state oppression of blacks through Jim Crow is a whitewash of what our actual "Southern Heritage" meant to people of color in this region.

    9 people died in SC and in response a flag that will fly now more not only in SC, but the country, was taken down from a memorial post.

    90,000 Rebel flags rise while 1 is lowered.

    Now the 9 dead will fade from public memory forever, but at least the left will think they've done something.

    Just in time before football season begins.



    Well played progs, well played...
