    LOL...okay .. you apparently didn't pay any attention to fluffy ninja s posts
    "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.

    How does FN's post erase the judgment of the Supreme Court? I already explained to him that it doesn't and that disagreeing with the Supreme Court (as pro-lifer's do everyday for Roe v. Wade) does not erase their judgment. The SC said it's treason and illegal. Last time I checked, what the SC says is the law, so...unless you have a lawyer...

    I agree with that comparison, but as we have seen in the Plessy decision as well as others, SCOTUS can be Supremely Wrong in their decisions.

    The scary part is I don't think he is. Did you look at his prior arguments?

    Well, it can be a symbol of many things, treason being one.

    It can be a symbol for the Dukes of Hazzard county's car. The General Lee.

    Sure, which is why people are welcome to disagree with the Supreme Court as pro-lifers do everyday, but those disagreements have no effect on what the opinion of the government currently is.

    Well, we had what I thought was a sarcastic back and forth with him about that very post. I could be wrong and will let him inform us.

    Agreed. Cases? Any answer to my other thoughts about what a symbol represents? Library closes iin 10 minutes... don't think less of me if I don't answer a post now, OK?

    That is pretty much my argument. It isn't a one size fits all kinda thing...

    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?
