Ban a person from displaying it... have you regressed to three years old?

"But why?"

Can anyone from the South Carolina statehouse, any state employee (who is authorised to be there)walk up to the flagpole and raise the confederate flag?

hahahahahahahahaha

So they found a way to ban the flag but not ban the flag.

They just "banned" the flagpole.

hahahahahahaha

Oh lord!

Remove the flagpole, remove the issue.

"Nahhh, it's not a "ban", um ooops, where'd that flagpole get to?"


Go on, chant USA USA USA some more.

hahahahahahahahahahaha

Wow. Now you're moving the goalposts so far that you have to take it to a "micro" level of specificity?

Reaching real hard now, huh?

Please continue, this is entertaining.

Care to answer the question? Or are you here for the soup?

Hypothetical, anyways, since they've removed the flagpole, but knock yourself out!

Sure.

No. The people and politicians decided they didn't want the flag to be there. That was their choice.

Any and all people are allowed to display the flag as they wish on their own property though.....even state employees.

Ah freedom. Isn't it great?

That's what I thought when I read it. We're going in to deeper levels of asinine.

Don't forget to come up for air once in a while and you will be fine.

Hey!

I'm not the one supporting banning of flags!


You folks can squee all you want about it, I'll just be the one who calls you out on it.

Ok, I'll play your game. They banned it from being displayed on government property. It was the choice of the people of that state. So what?

No individual liberties were taken away and each person is free to display it as they wish.

Government buildings, flagpoles and concrete slabs do not have the right to free speech and must reflect the will of the people of that state as to what is acceptable to be displayed.

What's difference does it make if we call it "banned" or not? The underlying reality is still the same. No rights were violated regardless of your need to use one specific term.

You're not actually calling anyone out on anything, your own delusions don't count... they are not reality.

no - they chose to not allow it to be displayed in and on facilities they control.

As is their right, and indeed their duty (in the sense that they have a duty to make decisions about what goes on in those facilities).

the way i see it,
the confederate flag represents a conquered nation. if we allow the flag to fly over government buildings in south carolina then can we then fly mexican flags over arizona state buildings? or british flag over a government building in massachusetts?

the flag isn't banned. anyone can have one up in their home, their business, or whatever floats their boat.

We would never have gone to the Moon or learned about Mars if we all just lived in the woods in tiny cabins, trapping our food and trading beaver skins.


That's a trade-off I'd be OK with. Food and skins are a far bit more useful than grainy video of Neil Armstrong and endless debates of whether we're looking at a martian rock or the mummified remains of Rue McClannahan.
