It should be burned. People all over the US did that today and will next Saturday too. Look for an event near you.


And this will magically cure racism in America.. Hooray! We are delivered!

Nah but it's pretty hard to say that you're working on or even acknowledging there's a problem with any variation of a confederate flag waving at government buildings.

All you folks who mock this small gesture should understand that for some this is a start.

The meaning of symbols is important.


Years from now when that barbaric group of savages called ISIS is eradicated from the earth (God please soon) their flag shouldn’t ever be displayed by anyone in a sense that the support them in any way.


The confederate flag is a symbol of slavery, degradation and the torture of a whole race of people


If any one can’t understand the importance of this symbol finally being recognize for what it is then thing again


Its not a panacea of awareness but it’s a start

As a Brit I do find this flag burning stuff fascinating
We don burn out Union Jack and it is the flag that enslaved much of Planet earth for hundreds of years, stole from it and murdered on a genocidal level varied populations. I just don't gt why you need to go flag burning?

If you are ok with this flag flying on your municipal buildings then I get you, I really do but if not then you are ignoring the fact of what

This^ actually means as a symbol and why it is used as a lightning rod to draw hate groups today matter of fact both are often used on the same ground.

These flags are saying I have the right to dominate and oppress you and this flag is to serve as a reminder of your place in this society.
And I say not with my tax dollars you don't, I will not pay for or give homage to symbols of my own domination, the confederate south and the Nazi state were both foreign entities confined to the dust bin of history, let it go.

"Last week’s massacre of nine black churchgoers by a white gunman in Charleston, South Carolina, re-ignited debates over the Confederate battle flag.

While federal and state flags were lowered to half-staff in the wake of the shooting, the symbol of the Confederate forces flew high over the state’s Capitol grounds in Columbia. That flag is padlocked in place, preventing it from being lowered to half-staff, but many activists, politicians and regular citizens want it gone altogether, citing it as a symbol of racism and hate."

Here the truth is told in so very simple terms the Confederate flag is a symbol for hatred of African Americans which was adopted in the 1940s. The Confederate flag has always been about race.

I'll tell you what, in celebration of these crybaby historical revisionists, I am going to watch The Outlaw Josey Whales tonight, starring Clint Eastwood.

This time when you watch it actually pay attention to it. The only reason why Josey joined the Confederacy is because the red legs killed his family before that he wanted nothing to do with the war.

No thanks kid, I have already watched it over 20 times in my life, and I don't need you telling me what it was about.

I know that he wanted no part in the War, Busty boy, just like the others who were betrayed and gunned down. The point is, it was about that era.

Ok then, Since it bothers you so much for you to assume that I was painting an American legend as a Confederate, then I'll watch John Wayne in the movie The Searchers tonight instead!

What do you got to say to that? = Probably that Ethan was forced to fight against the Union, and that he didn't really hate Indians. LMAO! You lose partner. ~$heopleNation
