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.

Kinda nails it, doesn't it? Here's a thought...given what the Orange Messiah declares about living servicemen who were captured, what do you think his real opinion is of dead traitors who got their arses whooped?

LOL

You said "I have Republican friends".
That was classic thanks for the laugh.

John McCain and those types are the real Fascists, omg how did you not see that? Those senators you're talking about are the fakes, they aren't conservative about much of anything.

Most of us consider them sell outs and backstabbers.

So I guess now it's just "Flag?" Doesn't have much of ring to it.

They are going to put a white flag up and call it six flags again.

Liar.

They did what they did under fear of attack.



Whom has threatened them with an attack if they did not take down the flag?

It's about a lot of things, but I doubt you would understand more than one layer of the issue.

Fools...... All of them... Ask Kellogs what happens when you mix politics and business.... Ask their former emplyees how glad they are that Kellogg felt the need to inject a bowl of cereal into the bathroom debate.

Ask the former head of Target if putting Target in bed with politics was a great idea.
The political winds blow back and forth.. if you pick a side instead of just selling your product and remain an uninterested 3rd party.. you will wish you did

I support a private business to do with that business as they please.

You don't want to sell products to gay people, fine.
You don't want to employ WS, fine.
You want to choose what flags you fly, fine.

Do you support the threats and coercion for businesses to remove the flag?

I haven't called anyone a Nazi here.

Yet.


That's exactly it. They initially said they would NOT be taking the flags down, that it represented our history. But someone got to them..

What probably happened was the protesters were upset over Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings decision to wait 90 days for a decision to remove the confederate statues. He wants to listen to all sides of the argument first. So they went after Six Flags instead.

The local news is reporting alot of angry people over this decision to remove the flags. Boycotting the theme park is in the works.

What a sad day for us..Divided States of America.

Sharon Parker is probably getting an earful from angry people, especially Texans. Her Linkedin profile shows her to be the public relations person as well as the communications director, so she should be busy for awhile.

I know my family nor any of my extended family plan on ever going to Six Flags again unless they allow all six historical flags that flew over Texas to stand. It's the principle. We're not talking about a statue here.
