This symbol has become a symbol of racism. Be that for good or bad. This is also true of the swastika, which was a Sanskrit symbol for good fortune. Yet if someone paints a swastika in a synagogue, do you think they're wishing good fortune to the Jews? Of course not, the symbol was corrupted by Hitler and your symbol was corrupted by the KKK. I'm sorry that happened but it did.
Anyone who knows anything about history knows that the Civil War was not fought to end slavery.Well, slavery is evil. So it stands to reason that those who fought for slavery were more evil.
There was only ONE reason for the civil war: the south knew that the north was going to push for an end to slavery across the entire country.
Said another way, the south would rather commit TREASON for the sake of maintaining slavery. And the confederate flag is a symbol of that desire!!
But, the war was fought to maintain the union (north's reason) and to defend its right to self governance (south's reason).
The reasons for secession do not = the reason for the WAR.
I did not create this thread. I am just talking about the subject matter. I am not getting spun up by a flag or some TV show. What TV show are you talking about? I never mentioned any TV show in this thread.
I think that you are just making up **** and trying to make me argue for it.
California was brought into the union as a free state. Yes, I lived there for some time, but I wasn't born there.And BTW...since you insist on applying that stink to all southerners that support the flag of the Confederacy, didnt YOU at one time live in California? Are you a native?
