McCarthy was a conservative, and I see your argument trying to equate fascism with liberalism in this and other posts, it again displays this hodgepodge of confused polisci understanding. But as I said, the idea that internal communism is as pervasive in US society as racism is....is absurd on so many levels. Further, the denial of how important, key to the South, was slavery, again shows just how far from reality your argument is, along with grasping at straws your references to a Wisconsin Senator are.You can claim that I have little knowledge or understanding of history if you so chose - we both know your argument is McCarthyist in nature. And, you can call him a "conservative," but he leaned toward fascism to ensure that everyone despised communism. He went so far as to question Ronald Reagan. McCarthy found communism as disgusting as you find the Confederacy.
Nice bed pal there.
I voted no. It's just political pandering by dems like hillary who needs petty issues to rant on about. Let the south keep their flag, it's part of their heritage and history. Crimes committed under it? Sure, same as crimes committed under stars and stripes and nobody is trying to abolish the stars and stripes.
The Confederate battle flag in South Carolina was first flown at the statehouse in 1961. "It was flown as a symbol of massive resistance to racial desegregation."
