Statues? Oh sorry, I meant flags.

I'm glad racism will be abolished with the removal of the statues flags.

It was just one flag and Nicky Hailey, remember?

Now just the implied threat of not caving into the demands of inbred Nazis is enough for businesses to change.

They probably don't want to suffer under a Krystalnacht.


That does not address what I said.

Are those that business owners also Nazi's because they decided to take down the flag?

Do you support their right to do so?


No.

the business owners are like the jews just hoping to appease the Nazis so they wont get punished.


You don't support their right to do as they choose as business owners?

That's interesting.


I support freedom, not threats and coercion.


Apparently you also think the decision made by private business owners in this case indicate they are Nazis.

I haven't called anyone a Nazi here.

Yet.

Why are you so dense? Business owners and Six Flags Over Texas have a right to take all the flags down from their iconic entrance. Okay? We all agree they have the right to do that.



I agree.

Others have said they are Nazis for doing so.

I'm confused.

Is it freedom or National Socialism?

I don't care if the flags are removed, either.

That is their choice.

By your definition they are acting like Nazis.

Did you not say what you said?



And the biggest irony of all is that the only ones acting like Nazi's are the ones removing symbols, statues, flags, images, and dictating how we should behave

Why not just replace it with an ISIS flag? At least that is a philosophy these folks knocking down statues and destroying history seem to identify with now.

No one is destroying history. Slavelands flag got taken down just wait 5 minutes and Billy Joe Jim Bob will be driving by with his flying high. Why would any company fly the flag of traitors to America it makes no sense.

It would be interesting to see the attendance totals before the flag gets taken down and after.


Here's another one that doesn't get it. The flag flew over Texas at a point in history. Six Flags Over Texas Theme Park has an iconic entrance that depicts an historical fact that 6 flags ruled over Texas at one time or another and the Confederate Flag of American States was one of them. Nobody is venerating it. Nobody is holding it high and proud. It's just there among the five others to tell people that come to the theme park that this is part of Texas history.

Sheeesh!!

Who gives a flyin' flip if you don't care if the flags are removed. I don't give a flyin' flip that you don't give a flyin' flip. You don't see the bigger picture anyway. One layer Joe.

Is it? I mean it seems to me that city councils are taking it upon themselves to vote them out.

Take a look at those city councils.

Be Careful Who You Vote For (even locally).

Regardless who sits on them, they are voting among themselves without public input.

6 Flags obviously felt threatened enough to remove the flag.

It's obvious to anyone with half a brain.

The bigger picture is that people can democratically decide what they want to be displayed and such.

And the people can overrule them.

That's democracy.

That is a logical fallacy.

No matter, it is their right to do so in a nation that grants them their freedoms.

Apparently, according to you, that makes em Nazis.

Sad it has come to this.

liar.

They were threatened either directly or indirectly.

Or do you honestly think this was an arbitrary decision on their part?

No. It's true. You employed a logical fallacy.



They were threatened either directly or indirectly.


By whom? Can you provide proof of that?

This is what the OP's source and FoxNews had to say:


They claimed that white supremacists and neo-Nazis adopted the Battle flag, not the original Confederate flag they have at the park. However both flags flew during the Civil War.




The park's decision comes after a “Unite the Right” neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Va., turned deadly when a car rammed into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one woman and injuring some 19 other people.




Or do you honestly think this was an arbitrary decision on their part?


It appears it may be in response to the Neo-Nazis actions recently.

That is their right.

So are they still Nazis themselves?

So it appears that they were motivated by fear.

A tactic often used by Nazis to coerce those to obey.

Nazis motivated by the fear of other Nazis?

That is the case here, if we are to believe your ridiculous assertions.

Also, where is the proof they were threatened?

C'mon Cowboy. Put up or shut-up, or admit you were talking out of your ass.

You're the only one calling 6 Flags Nazis.

I'm only calling those that would threaten either directly or indirectly 6 Flags and anyone else as Nazis.
