    You can't even support the racims you've displayed on this thread.

    I love how ya'll suddenly start screaming for evidence, when after more than a thousand posts, you can't provide your own. Simply amazing!

    Good night!

    I provide evidence for every claim that I make, and especially every claim where evidence is requested for it.

    As to racism, what racism have I expressed in this thread?

    It's a symbol of treason, slavery and racism in addition to a symbol of people's history, states' rights and whatever else.
    I am not a Southerner. I have no idea why you would say that nor imply that only Southerners could have a valid opinion.

    What is the Swastica to you then? I understand that you are probably not a Nazi, but I would still like to hear it.

The racists most certainly have flown Dixie in less than noble fashion, I would rather kick them down the stairs than give them the power to take over and bastardize the meaning of my heritage. To accomplish both I say fly the flag with honor and dignity and tell those who don't or won't get it to find another hobby.
    Great Post!

    The flag most certainly has meant racism, treason, slavery etc. to people in history - both in the Civil War era and more recent times. One can consider a symbol of something else, if you want. But it's been hijacked by the racists (much like the Nazis hijacked the swastika) and now you use it at your peril. A new symbol might be a good idea.
    Buddhists fly the Swastica with pride all over India and that region. It is all over buildings too... how about people stop being senstive weenies and put things into context isntead? Yeah, that would work...

    no, the Nazi hakenkreutz (broken cross), is on a 45 degree angle and its arms face clockwise.

    the Buddist swastika is sitting upright and its arms face counter-clockwise.

    So what? Some Buddhist Swastikas have four dots on them and they are both still Buddhist Swastikas...

    I never said you were.

    I wouldn't say or imply that. You would and you did.

    I love that people are liking your post after you've blatantly lied about other posters and made a blatantly false claim and cowered away after being called out for it. Add LaMidRighter and Bodhisattva to the list of people who shouldn't be taken seriously.

    Awwwww. Whassa matter? You can't counter with anything so you try to discredit us? Come on I thought you were better than that.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    A poster asking for proper evidence is always something that must be answered or the alternative is to risk losing all credibility.

    You want to say this must have been what it was like to sit in the fog and watch the Titanic sink into the North Atlantic night where the cold ocean waters simply took over inch by inch without even a whimper . But then you realize this is not even rowboat capsizing on small pond.

    The idea that anyone could be so far out there and yet so oblivious at the same time is to their inability to actually conduct an actual discussion and present at least a semblance of a case is really striking.
