    Do you understand the significance of flying a confederate flag in front of a black family's domicile...?  Much less in the middle of a protest advocating secession and nullification of the executive branch...??

    [/QUOTE]

    Exactly the same as a stoned college kid drawing a Hitler mustache on a Bush poster, to his 'fair and balanced' mind.... 

    [/QUOTE]

    Don't get me wrong.

    A nazi flag flown in this context would be almost as bad.  Less so, however, because naziism is not inherently american in origin.

    [/QUOTE]


    Neither was slavery.

    [/QUOTE]

    The confederacy was, however, and the flag represents it all - good and bad.

    One Confederate flag, one idiot...

    And off the smug progressives go, with the smears against all.

    Occupy Wall Street protesters below, with the Communist flag....please proceed to smear all the protesters...

    [/QUOTE]

    There's no such thing as a communist flag.  That's a flag of the former USSR, which no longer exists.

    There IS, however, such a thing as Confederate (Battle) Flag that, when used in the context of nullification, secession or racial animus, is meant to provoke a visceral reaction.

     

    But thanks for comparing the tee partee to communists.  That's very helpful.

    The confederacy doesn't exist either. Are you feeling ok today?

    [/QUOTE]

    That's true to a point.

    But a whole lot of people in this country have an emotional attachment to the precepts of the CSA - again both good and bad.

    And when the flag is brandished with talk of revolution and secession, that symbolism is alive and well.

    The third reich fell therefore there would be nothing wrong with flying a nazi flag outside a synagogue?


    Or somehow the confederacy and its direct link to slavery is magically different?

    I think people who get lightning bolts tattooed to show white supremacy are idiots; I think people who fly flags to represent hatred are idiots whether it's a symbol of nazism or slavery.

    I also know that you nor me have the ability or the right to judge anyone's or any groups character based on a picture of one person holding an inanimate object.

    But, I support your right to free speech and to soil yourself with hatred!

    I'd argue that the fantasy vision of America in the 50's where everyone kept their mouth shut and everyone was the same, never happened to begin with.  It was a TV show.

    Either way, if republicans want to remain relevant then they need to join us in the 21st century.

    1960's JFK

    And segregation. And women kept largely in the kitchen. Start of Vietnam. Not so 'great'.

     

    1980  RR

    Ooo..cocaine, Iran contra, Iraq using WMDs on Kurds and Irans, proxy dictators set up to fight the Russians, start of the deficit ballooning, embrace of dangerous trickle-down twaddle

     

     

    1990 Clinton

    Not so bad; internet bubble but also geneuine economic gains; but how is this really the "old" America? Only 20 years ago....

    The White House has bigger problems than a bunch of people flying flags demanding fiscal responsibility and asking our government to behave responsibly and according to the Constitution.......

    The Great Uniter, Nobel Peace Prize winning President Obama is doing the best that he can with very limited skills......the problem is that the challenges of the job require an ability that is beyond his reach.  It's not his fault.  It's the voters fault and they got what they deserved....

    Which part of the confederate flag denotes "fiscal responsibility"...?

    Again, there's nothing "fiscally responsible" about systematically tanking the economy the way the gop has done in this melodrama.

    All by themselves, they have cut this years growth rate in half over their squabbling...never mind their in-the-toilet approval ratings and alienation of businesses everywhere.

     

    And in the meantime, they've done nothing to address REAL issues, like immigration, taxes, or infrastructure.

    Flying the confederate flag in front of the White House, especially considering the current occupant, is a douchie move. Thankfully, it appears that this maneuver was executed by a lone flag waver.
