How many Indians died under the goddamned United States flag that the media protects like it was made of freaking solid gold? Governments screw people over, often killing them or enslaving them while flying their little flags all over the world. Either get over it or scream for all flags to be burned and banished. You cannot have it both ways.
We're talking about slavery that ended 150 years ago and yet here we sit 2 weeks before our annual praise and worship fest of a flag that has come to represent wage slavery, tax slavery, and imperialism...
Perspective, it's what is sorely needed.

I'm sorry you didn't get the reference.
Darynn Roof felt persecuted and was angry. It pushed him over the top and left 9 good people dead and many families wounded.
I realize people want to ban our flag we fly so proudly; I realize people want to desecrate our cemetaries; I know people want to tear down our monuments.I understand no one cares how we (Southerners) feel. I get it. We get it. We know that people hate us because of where we were born. We know people wish we would go away. We know people want us to burn in the fires of hell for eternity, so strongly that it might be the only thing keeping some people from abandoning religion altogether.
We get it, really. Those who meet the any of the above description, which is apparently the vast majority of non-Southerners are
No need to keep proving it; we really do get it.
According to the poll (.pdf HERE) – conducted by the Missouri-based Remington Research Group – 55 percent of South Carolinians supported removing the flag from the grounds of the S.C. State House in the aftermath of the tragedy. Thirty-seven percent oppose taking the flag down – while eight percent are unsure.
Only 47 percent of whites support removing the flag, though, while 72 percent of blacks support removing it. Meanwhile 80 percent of blacks believe the Confederate flag is a symbol of racism – compared to only 27 percent of whites.

The flag shouldn't be banned on public property because it's racist. It should be banned because it's a symbol of treason!! What the south did in the civil war was treason. The us constitution provides an avenue to add and subtract land. They ignored it and turned there arms on there fellow Americans. There is nothing to glorify there.
So all you people who claim you love America and are patriots, yet you sport a flag of treason....
Progressives banning history? NO WAY?! We never saw that coming.............oh wait......
The agenda has always been to change history, re-write, or forget......
Theyve started in schools, now sometimes you cant even fly the US flag on your own property without having issues.....
Such hypocritical BS
