Black Lives matter Chicago has a great idea, ban all Confed flags, statues and groups. I suppose BLM Chicago may want to think about the 9 people shot to death last weekend. Naa.


“After WWII, Germany outlawed the Nazis, their symbols, salutes & their flags. All confederate flags & statue, & groups should be illegal,” tweeted the Black Lives Matter Chicago Twitter account, @BLMChi.

So tearing down statues is the answer to hiding our sensitive eyes and hearts to the distressful parts of our past? Let's not talk or see any images? What about slavery? Should we sweep that little sweetheart of a blemish from our senisitive national eyes? This groovy idea even goes so far as to suggest taking confed imagery from private hands....


In the aftermath of violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, progressive activists nationwide have demanded, and in some cases illegally carried out, the tearing down and removal of statues and monuments to Confederate leaders and soldiers on public space. Now Black Lives Matter activists have gone even further — going so far as to call for a ban on all Confederate imagery — even in private possession.

What can you say. They're stupid. For real. But, politicians are whores for votes and if threatened, will cave to the stupidity.

Many of the cities' mayors and police chiefs allow this kind of vandalism and destruction. They stand down because they agree with it. Those people should be removed from office, imo.

Be Careful Who You Vote For.

The Confederate flag is beautiful. I have no stake in the politics, or emotions behind it. I have always been drawn to it aesthetically.

Removing it, or any other piece of history from that time period would be the crime.

They need to ban thugs, gangsters and drug dealers out of their neighborhoods.

They are far more threatening than any flag.

I see the brownshirts/Ministry of Truth is on the march where will they stop?

That hacktavist is conflating different era's.

And slavery should be washed from history as well. Never brought up, talked about or in films. Anything that is ugly and divisive should be scrubbed from history, after all that is what Germany did after WW II, and they are right, right?

They tore down statues and pictures and everything Saddam Hussein in Iraq .
Has that erased everything and made the country peaceful? Nope.
Doing that does nothing but help people forget what they are upset about then they just stay mad and keep fighting , then if you were to ask why they are fighting you will not get any real reason .

Which would include the Democrat Party,planned parenthood,gun control, and state in marriage.

I don't think that is in BLM Chicago's wheelhouse.

Yep. It's a war zone there. Approaching 500 deaths this year. Thousands shot. A much larger issue than one person being run over by a car.

Yeah, only a matter of time before they try to ban Civil War re-enactment, but I'm not surprised. There was someone on here who didn't think much of it.

The Black Lives Matter people will find they can not win in some cases.

Confed flags, and groups are protected under the First Amendment.
