    But you did say that I implied that only Southerners can have a valid opinion and I asked about it. Deal with that...

    It's a symbol of treason, slavery and racism in addition to a symbol of people's history, states' rights and whatever else.
    What is the Swastica to you then? I understand that you are probably not a Nazi, but I would still like to hear it.

    And what are Haymarket and Phys thanking you for? Thinking that I shouldn't be taken seriously or the rest? Probably something else just like I was thanking apstd for. We have always gotten along and used to agree on points but if you want to be a punk that is fine too...

    Has someone made some tedious explanation for why secession wasn't really about slavery yet? I'm too lazy to check.

    Already did. You argued the flag only means X where X is what Southerners claim it is. If it only means X, it can't mean Y where Y is what non-Southerners are arguing it is.

    What is the Swastica to you then? I understand that you are probably not a Nazi, but I would still like to hear it.
    What is this question? It means everything that it is just like the Confederate flag does - good and bad.

    They think that "I don't like it" and "I debunked it" are one and the same.

    They claim is that it was really about tariffs and railroads and the Northern disrespect for the Constitution particularly as it relates to tariffs. This is ridiculous as South Carolina who was the main state who opposed the Tariff of 1828 (which is the tariff in question) and it listed ONLY slavery and the North's hostility towards slavery as its reason for secession in its official declaration of secession.
