    Clearly, the only black Southerners who like this flag, are truly ignorant of the past.

    Nevermind the clear racism inherient in the South's secession.

    from the Cornerstone Speech, given by the Vice-President of the Confederate States of America:

    Our new Government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition.

    Many do. I have friends who have waved Dixie and happen to be black, it's not a race or oppression or self-hating thing, it's a southern thing.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

So let's drop the pretentious jackassery.
    But if the left dropped pretentious jackassery, then what would they have left?

    To be fair, I've seen plenty of open mindedness and intellectual thought from some on the left, and I've seen some real jackassery from the right. It boils down to can someone have an intellectual debate or not, I tend to let my inner jackass out every once in a while myself so I can't really judge, but I usually do that to make a point or I've given up on a poster.

    Fair statement. I've seen it in person and yes I know that is the worst evidence. I'm just including it to make a point.

    that's like excusing the waving of the Nazi flag by German Jews, as merely a "German thing".

    I see we've gone back to the "all Southerners think alike and you non-Southerners just don't understand us" part of the program?

    It really isn't. Then again I wouldn't expect anything more than a hollow platitude from some people who just don't get it.
