Watch this. It also includes some information from a historian as well as an included video on who we should really be concerned with. Those on the left who the media is praising and while they are condemning the words of our president.

Please watch the first video to the end which is why I choose this video. Sanity

This is a kid. He wants to show his support for his family who had people fight and die in a war that divided our country and to be honest it has never healed. The US is still as north/south situation.

www.liveleak.com...

Watch the protesters. Screaming at him. Yelling at him. What is he doing? Is he a racist? Is he a Nazi? These are the ones that our president was describing when he said there are good on BOTH sides. Remember, he said both as well as condemned the hate and the violence of BOTH sides.

At the end, with a female berating the kid, the The police officer asks...."You want another day like Saturday don't you"....and it really rang of truth.

What was that man doing, by saluting a flag, to deserve what he got?

Now, this is who he is dealing with....these are the type of people who were yelling at him. (NSFW language)

www.liveleak.com...

and the media wants me to be afraid of the KKK and Nazis? Folks, we need to reel this back before more innocent people are killed. It is not those who instigate but those who following thinking they will make a difference in the end who will pay the most.

Not to offend the op, or anybody.

Am I the only person who is already tired of this bs?

Seriously it seems both sides act like morons every day.

What are we fighting about?!? I just don't understand.

Sorry, I am just tired of fighting.

When folks see this














It makes it really hard not to think it stand for nothing BUT racism.

One can put up a video with some nice southern violin music playing in the background to work on the emotions. Heck one can even have a cop say " you want another Saturday, don't you" to the people yelling. But- Id argue that kid wanted a confrontation and knew exactly what he was getting himself into. Timing.... I wonder if he went out with a confederate flag to that monument in the months or years before? Or was it AFTER Saturday?

Were the people rude to him. Definitely. I'd be rude to someone holding a flag of hatred as well.

You see. You bring hate. I was trying to show that there is good and you want to post more hate. How did what I post offend you so much?

It didnt. You didnt.


The flag does. Because it stands for hate and racism. Despite the recent attempt at revisionist history. It MAY not have stood for hate in the 1860's.. I dunno I wasnt there. But I know what it stood for in the 20th and now the 21st century. and thats what I care about.

I bring hate? No. I bring logic. And logic dictates I will not sit idly by when someone shoves the confederate flag of hate in my face. I dont bring violence. I bring words. Would I act like the people in the video? No. Probably not. But Id certainly attempt at digging into his brain and list of off some facts he may or may not be aware of.

Most wouldn't have a clue if the media didn't splash it across every platform they can.

Do people seriously not see this is mostly contrived, meant to cause disruption, to cause division, to cause social unrest? There's always an agenda. The MSM regularly picks and chooses what it'll show and one has to be blind not to see the agenda surrounding racism.

Id argue his hatred rubbed off on me then


Plus rude is relative. Many different levels. Me personally, I wouldnt curse at him or flip him off. Just non stop listing of facts trying to spark a debate.

Sure thing.

The Dixie flag has been around for such a long time, and now you have got a problem with it? After all this time, now is the time in which white brats have a problem with a statue of a Confederate soldier? Really?

Give me a break.

I have a Confederate flag, I've had it since I was a young man, even though I have nothing do to with the United States of America. To me, and a lot of nationalists oriented people in Europe, it has always presented a symbol of rebel, defiance if you will.

Just because you see something racist when you look at a flag, which is based on your own bias and presumptions, it does not mean it symbolises the same thing to another person.

He was giving more respect to the dead and gone, than to the living who are here and now in that environment.

Why doesn't he salute the current people of the city instead?

You dont live here. you dont live next door to people who see that flag as a symbol of something that enslaved their direct ancestors.

And no we dont all of a sudden have a problem with it. Its always been a problem- just a quiet one. You didnt see it used out in the open nearly as much as it has been in the last few years. The difference is the KKK has taken off their hoods.

Yes.

How about these racists defending hate.


The debate about Confederate statues in Dallas intensified on Monday as a group made up of predominantly African Americans called for the monuments to remain standing.

Several cities across America have now begun to remove or talk about removing Confederate markers shortly after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville turned deadly.

Former city council member Sandra Crenshaw thinks removing the statues won’t help.

“I’m not intimidated by Robert E. Lee’s statue. I’m not intimidated by it. It doesn’t scare me,” said Crenshaw. “We don’t want America to think that all African Americans are supportive of this.”

Crenshaw, along with some Buffalo Solider historians and Sons of Confederate Veterans are coming together to help protect the Confederate markers from toppling over in Dallas.

They feel the monuments, like the Freedman’s Cemetery, tell an important story and help heal racial wounds.

How about this hate monger.


But I am sure you would have went right up to him and be rude as you put it.

You almost always see Antifa kids proudly waving a Communist flag. Not sure if you know, but approximately the same amount of people had been killed in the name of Nazism and communism.

The United States of America and all of the western countries had been in a cold war with Communism. Guess you didn't know that now, did you?

So, are all Christians haters and racists? Should we get rid of the bible because the KKK follows it? That is logic. What you are doing is spreading hate.

A confederate flag is one piece of a puzzle. Did you know many people in the South helped slaves escape in the Civil War. So if that family flew a flag they would be racists? Again, your logic is flawed.

In the 21st century a 'symbol' should not trigger hate but it does. We should be educated enough to know there is no way we could ever return to a society as it was.
