It's official. This country has gone full-on retard. If this is true. Well, even if it isn't.


arly 40,000 people have signed onto a petition to remove the African-American Monument from the South Carolina statehouse grounds after a Confederate flag was taken down.

The flag was moved in 2000 from the statehouse dome to a Confederate Soldier’s Monument nearby, and a monument to the state’s black history was built the following year as part of the legislative agreement over the tribute to the Confederacy.

The petition’s author, Keith Harmon, said the flag should not have been removed in response to the massacre of nine black churchgoers by a white supremacist who posed for photos with Confederate symbols. [Source]


To this I say the same thing as I said about Stone Mountain...history, good or bad, remember nd learn from it. Not the same as that stupid flag thing at all. Just a bunch of sore losers who can't fathom the depths of what truly compares to what.

If already posted...delete away.

Looks like the controllers and their media tool has worked on the masses again.

Hypnotized sheep will never see past their controllers intention, reptitivly repeating the same insanity rather stand up and fix things themselves.

Wish I had media control! Could brainwash and hypnotize the masses to be loving, caring, and not give two sh#ts about flags, skin, or belief. ..

40, 000 people have fed the artificial machine

I think it is because white people are sick and tired
of being blamed for everything under the sun
of being constantly shamed by the media
of being constantly told they are evil for being born white and "privileged"

This is simply a reaction to all of the above.

An overreaction, but what I think is the reason behind this overreaction.

Let's make a bronze statue of a homosexual black man draped in the confederate flag-some folk will be too confused to be outraged.

Agreed. I don't really want to say what I feel about this story. It's just too nasty. Even for me.

I'm white and not only do I NOT get blamed for everything under the sun, I'm not sick and tired of anything... I have never been shamed by the media, nor have I been told that I am evil for being born white and privileged...

And I would NEVER sign such a stupid petition!

Jeez, what kind of media are you listening to?

I'm kind of beige-y pink myself, and pretty mocha in the summer, so I dunno.

To second another poster:

I'm white, and I'm not "sick and tired" of being blamed "for everything under the sun."

I've never felt shamed by the media.

I've never had anyone tell me that I'm evil because of the color of my skin.

Well, "white" ... I had a Black great-great-grandmother, a Mexican great-grandfather, and some Cherokee mixed in according to family legend (like everyone else in the South).

Perhaps we should be more careful about general comments and for letting our own personal beliefs speak for oh, I don't know, 210 million other people?

How does a memorial to people who died as slaves equate to a flag that was brought back in the 50s in support of opposition to segregation again?

Watching this debacle from London is too funny, sorry to laugh cousins, but it truly is as an outsider, unfathomable nonsense.

How deranged and borderline racist do you have to be to project your inadequacies onto others then demanding a slave memorial should be removed... And then playing the victim...


Call it playing the race card all you like...

But it's true. Undeniably.



Edit: "White shaming" lulz.

If a person chooses to be offended, a person chooses to be ashamed...

Simple.

Peter Schiff: " We Are All Slaves! " ...plus some Civil War facts that are not being vigorously promoted by America's "elite" NWO social engineers.

Confederate False Flag! ...if you don't see it as a deceptive diversion that's been dishonestly devised by the ruling "elite" to help divide this country, then you may need to have your eyes examined.

Please laugh, Charlie. The alternative is just too unsavory to think about on a beautiful Saturday, eh?

And ya know, I;m not sure it's even racism. It's a bunch of goofballs who are in no way representative of the nation as a whole who didn't get their way or get people to agree with them making a lot of noise that other goofballs then find it convenient or necessary, for whatever reasons they have (monetary, control, feeling like they're part of a team or club or something) to repeat.

They do not equate at all.

It is an overreaction to constantly being
blamed for everything wrong in society
and for all the problems that black people have.

It is the constant barrage of headlines like these
that the people in South Carolina
are over reacting to.



So ... to summarize ...

1. One media personality who happens to be a White guy has an opinion
2. An MTV show is controversial
3. One professor makes a name for himself with a notorious statement
4. A link to a forum post on another site (against T&C here?) shows that people have different opinions about things.
5. A comedian shares his opinion and makes the news

Did that cover it? Giving the benefit of the doubt, I count three individuals, maybe 100 people on the TV show, and maybe 30 on the forum?

What about the other 209,999,867 White people you claim feel as you do?

But we aren't. We, White people, are not blamed for everything, or are we blamed for all of the problems that Black people have.

You're exaggerating and projecting your personal opinion onto the rest of us.
