    If you think that states' rights is some sort of code, you don't.

    Honestly T what is and is not actually a fact seems to be unclear to many on this board. There is what is known vs what one "thinks" they know, the latter often being confused as fact.

    I'm dealing in what is known.... historic facts.

    facts that don't fit the latest narrative, but facts nonetheless.

    Wait and see.

    Of course that won't stop you or anyone else from having it tattooed on your forehead.

    When someone starts that type of insulting, it becomes obvious that they know they're on shaky ground. I told you that you would win this one. I'm just telling you that your victory is a loss for truth and integrity. I don't have a confederate flag. I don't even own an American flag, so your insult is as misplaced as is your idea that you can make the world a better place by shoving your personal ideology down others' throats. No one said a state should be "required" to display the flag, it's only been said that, as a determining part of some states' cultures, it should be "allowed."

    Remember my prediction. You will take this symbol and turn it into a racist symbol that every skinhead sews onto his clothing. That will be the result of your insistence on making it a racist symbol. You're driving a racial wedge - and you're not alone. Your intent is to "stick it to those racists in the South" by forcing them to abandon their history.

    That's not liberalism - that's pure fascism.

    1. It already *is* a racist symbol - it doesn't need to be turned into one.

    "that every skinhead sews onto his clothing"

    2. I'm quite on board with that. Makes it much easier to spot who the ignorant, racist ****nuts are.

    So - you're into radicalizing extremists?

    Good to know.
