PC? Don't see me running for office do ya? Seems most folks can't handle the truth so we have to create a fluffy unicorn candy corn version of "truth" which happens to fit political agenda. The term PC to me is no different than telling buddy that you have the same favorite food, so buddy would be more inclined to follow you politically. It's all hogwash and horsepoop. wheelin and dealin. Just nasty.

And somehow, it was not an issue until last week. Funny that.


and next week it will be another issue

this is nothing new. it just so happens to be the confederate flag this time around.

something bad/negative happens and there is a mad scramble to do 'something' about it so that it looks like something is being done about it

The whole idea of having a loud minority dictate the way the majority functions based on a knee jerk reaction is idiotic. If the people of a state wish to display a symbol of their heritage, it's their right.


1. What minority? Whites and blacks want the thing to come down.
2. No one has "dictated" a damn thing.
3. The people of the state have every right to continue to fly the flag.

Deny ignorance on this subject!



This irritates me way more than it should.


You got that right!


The minority is the liberal media. The small group that thinks it's PC version of life is what WE ALL need to see. As I said, that small group won't get this. It's not in their wheelhouse. Perhaps you could make some signs.


I don't get the whining, the slippery slope sarcasm (like about colored pens and beards). I don't get that removing one thing will cause a PC version of life like the Truman Show or something. It's a step to try to remove something from government property than many associate with racism. Just one thing.

Actually it was an issue last year...
In South Carolina of all places.


Although, the one defending its presence on a government building appears to be the same woman who now wants it removed...
& she is not a Liberal as far as I know.

The world is topsy turvy.

What minority?

Well, as of 2014 the last poll conducted on it found 61% of South Carolinians felt the flag should fly on the capital grounds. 42% felt strongly about it.

33% of respondents felt it should be removed, with 26% feeling strongly.

So I guess that would be the minority network was referring to.

Now all we need is for someone from the Westboro Baptist Church to shoot up a gay bar so we can ban that oppressive symbol of bigotry known as the Bible.

.........You're talking about the man who designed the SECOND version of the flag. All of this discussion is around the THIRD version of the southern cross. Heck, I'm in Canada and I know about this stuff. I guess some people have a true passion for knowledge and others are more satisfied with reading the first article they see and accepting it as truth without doing as much as clicking the linked source to verify. But hey, to each man his own. There is ONE truth but everyone has the right to believe what they want.

oh forgive me. i was talking about the wrong version that was designed by a racist...
gotcha

i dont really have a passion for knowledge when it is # i dont care about.
i said that i was not sure if it was true. gave the link where i pulled it from. people can do their own research, or listen to you, the all knowing.

i know what pops into my head when i see that flag. i grew up in the south and have always felt the same way about it.
i am definitely not mr confederate flag supporter

the guy that designed the flag in question



After the war ended, Thompson, a racist supporter of the Democrats, opposed the Republican Party's efforts in southern U.S. states as well as opposing the granting of civil rights and freedoms to African Americans and former slaves

And to think, all they needed to do is shoot up a church. Well, I guess that will be the way to get things done in the future.

Lesson learned. (still don't' see the point huh?)

I think my biggest point is that you don't see the problem. that in itself it the driving reason this is even an issue.


The confederate flag flying on the SC capitol has been a matter of disagreement and debate since 1962, when it was put there. This has been coming for a long time. What Roof did was just the final straw, not the ONLY straw.

People have been boycotting the state for many years because of it.

Maybe in YOUR limited education on the topic... But the facts disagree with you.


THE MAJORITY uses it for completely different purposes.


And they are free to use it!

Now tell me what the problem is.

It's part of the Mississipi flag, to which they're also now in a debate about the removal of such.

Is that an admittance of false flag attacks to push an agenda?

That's not like you Network

Charlie is right. And there has been pressure to change that for many years.

It also flies on Alabama capitol grounds. I'm not sure if others still do.

Here's an interesting article on the flag in question...
www.palmbeachpost.com...



The “Southern Cross” spent 100 years in obscurity, then sprang to prominence in the 1950s. It was part of a movement scholars say had nothing to do with heritage and was instead an act of defiance to federal civil rights efforts.


No wonder so many find it offensive.

Does anyone else wonder what we would be discussing today, if this sicko would have had the "Apple" insignia all over his clothing and vehicle, yet still did and said what he did?


The clothes don't make the man.
