We've already got people on this thread defending state-run censorship and infringement of rights.

Obviously they are anti-American, Anti-Constitutional.


I'd go one step further and say they're anti-freedom.

It gonna bite them on the ass someday....

Like Ralphie, “you'll shoot your eye out”.

The Left is Ralphie.

Maybe they should also start going through all the books and so forth and white/black scrub out all the images of confederate flags and swastikas........oh wait.....it's probably quicker just to burn them......



Did you not read?

It says theyre banned except for educational and historical purposes.

Major props to Governor Cuomo

Germany banned the Nazi flag long ago. Not sure why its taken us this long to ban the Confederate flag.


Confederate weren't Fn Nazi's...

Are you being obtuse on purpose? Or are you cranially challenged?

SMH


The Confederates were traitors to the Union, and supported the ownership of slaves... which was an atrocity, and a major human rights violation. slave owners brutally assaulted and viciously murdered slaves for decades. Confederates fought for states right s to continue carrying that out. They also fought against our own country, and killed our own citizens.

Nazis and Confederates both killed hundreds of thousands (millions in the Nazis case) of people.. and in the Confederates case, most were US citizens and slaves.

Nazis' and Confederates both fought in the name of "economic prosperity" which was a mask for the Nazi's extermination of the Jews, and the Confederacies continuance of slavery.

Both were radically conservative

Both tooks advantage of ignorant and downtrodden citizens to join the bandwagon


They are pretty similar.. and both have no place in 21st century USA, theyre both Un-patriotic

Can you sell a confederate flag in a state fair in New York?


Yes you can. Unless this bill is passed. Then you’ll have to use those trunks you call legs to walk to a store and buy one there instead.


Liar.

The Bill has been signed.

By the governor.


Actually yes, I am a liar.

From the article

There’s going to be a chapter amendment that limits the prohibitions at the state fair, to ensure that we are respecting the protections that the Supreme Court has recognized for individuals and vendors at state fairs to exercise their First Amendment rights,” explained Maya Moskowitz, press secretary of bill sponsor state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi (D-Bronx).


So yes, you will be able to buy them at state fairs.

They're "proposing" an ammendment to try to slide through their infringements.

So go buy them somewhere else. Freedom of expression doesn’t mean you have the right to buy something anywhere. If that was the case, kids toy stores would be able to sell porn.

Sort of like the approach to stifle the 2nd when they passed that having a "felony" is enough to strip you of that right. Everyone cheered because it was commons sense. Until, that is, they easily began to expand the definition of felony until it covered so many things is has begun a defacto stripping of your 2nd amendment right.

Same here. Start with what everyone can agree is OK, then once passed, expand the definitions to include more and more.

When will people see the frog in the pot is a mirror???

Human rights violation? WT actual F?

The whole history of mankind is one giant human rights violation...

If you consider them traitors, that's fine. I'm sure they reciprocate.

They still have their own history. Which they have a right to.

You can make a case that the proliferation of symbols and propaganda is not covered by freedom of speech

Brandenburg v. Ohio in 1969, limited the scope of banned speech to that which would be directed to and likely to incite imminent lawless action

Seeing as how the Confederacy was literal traitorship and sedition that led to the deaths of 600,000+ Americans, Its not hard to say that the flag could incite lawless action

Same as the Nazi flag

Laughs.

Until some state governor wants to ban the LGBTQ flag because it offends.

Then while you're soiling your skinny jeans with digested soy, I can bring this thread back up.

Or like soy. That stuff is worse than death.

Don't know, don't care.

All I'm concerned with is free expression and arguing against you anti-freedom book-burners.

I guess I’ll leave to your imaginary infringements and scary people taking away your rights.

Umm..

Its not a justification for infringing on rights at all.

Its a clarification of what our rights are and what they are not.
