I think this entire discussion is retaliatory. But you know what.... if you're filled with anger and need to retaliate against something, better a flag than something more valuable
I will say.... it's a bit disingenuous that most of the "haters" of the confederate flag seem to be northerners who don't have any skin in the game. Would be a more meaningful debate for southerners to have among themselves, in my opinion
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
