You could check your sources and not post obvious lies..
It would be cool.
Obamadude made no such action.. Nor would it even be allowed in the USA..

Check it, not even Fox news would get anywhere close to something so obviously fake.



Real News, Right Now has appeared on the pages of snopes.com before as a purveyor of fake news via a web site that carries no disclaimer. Their fictitious article about a ban on Confederate flags and memorabilia was just one of at least three prominent Confederate flag-related items to circulate widely in the same 24-hour stretch, along with one about Amazon’s ousting Confederate flag merchandise from their site but allowing ISIS flags to remain, and one about the 1992 Clinton-Gore campaign (and the 2012 Obama campaign) issuing pins bearing the controversial ensign.

I was actually illustrating my previous post claiming that all that BS about banning the flag was just that. BS


Rumors spread deliberately with the sole purpose of demonizing the other side.


Congrats to you for doing your homework and checking the source! I wish everyone on ATS would be as critical as you...




Anyone "supporting the confederate flag" has been manipulated into doing so because there is no global move to ban that flag in the first place.

And if some want to claim they are offended by the flag, not only it is their right, but they also have all the reasons for being offended as you can see in my signature below.



I think the most interesting question now would be who spread these rumors and who benefits from it.

It's pretty clear to me but judging by the stance displayed by many distinguished members and mods here I'm afraid to share it.

I put things in their proper context when I can.

And I thank you and give you credit for that



There is hope for this board.


p.s. I thought my avatar was good enough of a disclaimer


p.p.s. the new Gadsden flag has been leaked

haha well I am enjoying all the interesting avatars lately.
Yours is the most over the top so far.
But then is your avatar a disclaimer for every one of your posts?
I'm sure many will feel that way.
I try not to judge on appearances.

It's a disclaimer that you may have the right to not care about the feeling of others, but then don't expect that others care about yours.


Some people claim freedom is supreme, but then where does the freedom of others stop? It's easy to support freedom when you talk about yourself, then to deny it in others.

This is the sign of a culture promoting entitlement and selfishness.



Yes, I do find all these recent discussions to protect the right to fly the flag of a government/army founded on a racist ideal supremely hypocritical.

Oh I agree..
For me I will be more and more free, the more people I can make free.
If I want to be free in my bed to do as I wish with who I wish, then everyone else better be able to as well.
This obviously stops at consent of the willing, so as to not violate free will.

It's something I think about a lot, and why even though I don't like the confederate flag myself, I can't want to force others to not like it.

It's a tricky subject, right?

If freedom is the most important as long as it doesn't impede someone else's, then you have to allow same sex marriages, you have to allow abortions, you have to allow women to wear the niqab, etc...


Sometimes we are so fixated on our own rights that we forget those of others. Also meaning the right to be offended by a flag and to remove it if you have the authority to do so.

yea.. Only part is the abortion part.. That one is a bit more tricky, because there could be 2 people involved in that choice, depending on how old the "baby" is. Or if you can consider it a baby, and when.

But in reality the balance of freedom goes to whoever owns the culture/conversation. (I'd like that to be a balanced representation myself)
Being PC is our new culture, so I tend to be more crude than my nature at times.

I see progress being made all around me, so I'm not worried about it. And then I see people who are supposed to be open and fighting for human rights acting like fascists, and I am like whoa.. You lost the plot there son..

I don't agree, I think it is an important point the O.P. is making.

Everytime you fly that flag, the terrorists have won.



Everytime you say that George Orwell has won

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

typical curiosity, doubt, and luck of faith in humankind

intuitive reply only but otherwise i actually have no idea what exactly were you trying to say sorry

EDIT: btw that is my favorite line from bible

That has to be the BEST avatar yet!


As to the topic,
this is America,
that is a part of it's history,
therefore it should never be banned,
although I am not sure about on federal buildings.

My wife is a Texan, and she thinks this whole confederate flag business is silly.
We don't see it the same way as I am a Super-Yankee by her standards..lol

I just don't think it should fly on federal buildings but other than that, it's all good.

I considered writing /end sarcasm in that post, but didn't think it would be needed. I guess I was wrong.
