    I did. It is unclear to me what you are saying.

    It actually is treason. The Supreme Court declared as much in several court cases that have been ignored at length here.
    He says it is not treason and you say that you, SCOTUS and the US Government disagree and then go on to say that sCOTUS declared that it is treason in several court cases. If you are nitpicking about the slavery and racism part you could just say so. So you are saying that SCOTUS and the US Government thinks that the Confederate Flag is a symbol of treason then?

    You ignored my other question..... on purpose no doubt...

    When was Jefferson Davis's treason trial?
    When was Robert E Lee's?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I ignored your question because it had no relevance. They didn't have trials. And the Supreme Court still ruled Confederate actions illegal and treasonous. Consequently, they were illegal and treason according to the US government. How do Davis and Lee change that? They don't. Thus concludes my acknowledgement of your irrelevant questions.

    I'm saying the government decided that the Confederacy's actions were treason (fact) thereby making its flag a symbol of treason.

    But hey, at least you admitted it and didn't try to hide it.
    I did not think you would resort to stupidity over a real argument. Guess I was wrong.

    Fair enough. Cases please?

    And even if so... does a case about the Confederacies actions make all symbols of the Confederate treasonous? Is the Chinese flag one of Crimes against Human Rights? Is the Iranian flag one of sexism? Is that it? One action decides the entirety of the symbol?
