    Of course. It couldn't be anything other than that.

    Yes, we do. You, however, do not.

    For you to sit here and try to deny it was the flag of a culture that had slavery as an institution is quite laughable.
    No one is denying that the Confederate flag was flown by the slave holding south. Our point is that the flag today does not exclusively represent bigotry, racism, and slavery. Many see it as a symbol of Southern pride, a symbol honoring the fallen soldiers of the Confederacy, or as a symbol of state's rights. Just because a thing has one meaning doesn't it is the only meaning.

    But go on ranting and raving how everyone who disagrees with you is a racist. We've come to expect it from you.

    So?

    What the hell does physics have to do with history?

    You are on the fringe. No serious person thinks the Confederate flag is harmless. In fact, quite the opposite. It is the reason most capital buildings in the U.S. do't fly that flag anymore.

    Why?

    Because it represents slavery, racism and oppression.

    Thats why they took it down.

    You claimed those who are educated and intelligent. Well I am well more educated and intelligent than you. Why do you keep changing parameters when you get beat on a point?

    Does not "exclusively" represent bigotry.

    You're claim is that Wilson voted for the flag because he believes fully in what it used to stand for. The fact that there are groups which use it as such demonstration does not mean that Wilson himself believes that. You are using coincidence, equating two unrelated things through a coincidence of use. Thus my question remains the same. Do you have actual proof. No more coincidence and supposition, actual proof. Do you have it?
    I explained in another post that I believe that protecting the insurance industry's obscene profits is the ultimate goal of Wilson & most of the anti HC reform movement.
    That being said, I also said that racism is being used as a weapon/tool to advance that goal & I believe Wilson's past does suggest strongly that he is in fact a racist.

    Those who demand absolute proof of Wilson's (probable) racist motivations/tactics would undoubtedly still defend him if he showed up at the next House session wearing full KKK regalia!

    I can hear the defenses now:

    1. Wilson had just done the wash & rather than carry the sheets around all day...he decided to put them over his head to free his hands for voting.


    ....or

    2. Wilson suffers from a rare skin condition which requires him to wear sun-blocking, light colored protective clothing.

    ....or

    3. A group of black, left-wing Commie Pinkos attacked him outside the Congress...took all his clothes & forced him to wear just those damned sheets.

    or

    4. Fill in the blank

    No, you're totally wrong. It's like the Japanese. That flag was flown under the Emperor and stood when Japan attacked America. So anyone who flies the Japanese flag supports the emperor and surprise attacks on America. Which is why I don't eat Ramen.
