Are YOU for banning the flag on public property?

No I get the feeling I'm arguing with someone who wants to be a victim and needs to believe he's being persecuted though.

They're only interested in banning the flag on public property.

You can still have it on private property.

And they say I'm being a conspiratorial nutter by thinking that they're doing this incrimentally.


As far as I am concerned they are acting like a bunch of nazi's ftw.

Instead of book burning censorship, they support flag burning censorship.

They been put that flag on those properties for over 150 years.

Now they want to get 'rid' of it.

I guess better late than never.

The flag is being banned on public property.

People are cheering and supporting it.

Ironically, it's the same people who also stated that they'd never support a flag-ban.

But I guess that's conditional.

I feel like I'm having an evolution argument though. I try to present reasoned arguments and instead just get fallacies and emotional rhetoric in return. Like Beezer seems to believe that if he can trick someone into showing SOME kind of support for taking the flag down, that somehow validates his slippery slope fallacy that we secretly want to ban the flag altogether.

Give them to the people that care about their heritage if they're going to piss and moan, privatize all Confederate memorials and cemeteries. Then it won't be any of the rest of ours business. Until then, all people have a say over what is done with our tax dollars and in our names.

Oh yeah people cheered/supported too when the nazi's burned books.

How things never change.

If it's still used for private display then it is not banned. Your logic is invalid.

This type of "authoritarian" mindset is predictable.

First it was the flag in the Civil War Memorial.
Now it's flags at Civil War cemetaries.

Incrimental or predictable?

Gotta love Godwin's Law. Losing an argument? Just reference the Nazis to make it official in everyone's eyes.

No.

I think that people in states and communities should be able to fly whatever flag they choose at their public places as long as the people agree on it. Except religious symbols because that's an entire different issue.

You see, I don't give a damn about symbolism. I think it's for the weak minded. Fly the confederate flag if you wish. I don;t care. But don't bitch and complain when some think your state or community if full of racist bigots.

Freedom and personal responsibility. It's awesome!

So if you keep it hidden, away from the public, then it's okay.

But just don't do anything with it on public land or where anyone can see you.

I wonder if there would be a fine associated with flying the confederate flag in SC public property now.

So if enough people agree on banning a symbol, then that symbol should be banned on public property?

The thing is, you don't have to utter racist names or make racist comments to be racist.

All you have to do is give preference over one "race" (which doesn't really scientifically exist anyway...).

The people that claim they're not racists are usually somehow discriminatory in one form or another in ways they don't realize.

Am I? Care to show where I specifically said that I want to ban the flag? Or are you just projecting your insecurities on me again? Probably the latter.

Look at you all grown up using proper words.

You get a carrot.
