    For once, why don't you tell us what you think? Why southern heritage does that flag represent. We know damn well it isn'the fried twinkies, but if you want to pretend that'she your real answer then you deserve every bit of ridicule you get.

    When one apparently can't "think" someone has to "think" for him. To see where Republican thinking doesn't work, just look at KANSAS.

    Gee, if folks flying the flag are truly celebrating Southern heritage and tradition, why isn't this the flag they fly? (or any one of a bunch of pre-1961 State flags...)



    Rather than the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia?

    Because Sherman was not allowed to crush the traitor spirit out of them, when he had the chance, AND because the US did not have the backbone OR the moral authority/moral imperative to actually protect ten million new citizens from the vindictive, murderous thugs whose political heirs are now in the White House.

    So you believe that to end the killing, Sherman should have been allowed to keep killing...... Yup, that would have taken the wind right out of the southern sail...........

    I would be willing to bet that most of those waving the battle flag think it was the Confederate States of America flag. Most aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer.

    Heck I ran into a guy from GA who was having work on his car which had a Confederate flag on the hood. I mentioned it to him and said it was racist and made in 1861 when the south split from the union. Of course he disagreed and when pushed said:

    The flag shows the original colonies that fought against the crown in 1776.

    Well, that started another debate and he changed his mind and said:

    This flag originated in the 1600's and presented all the colonies that existed then.

    Well, I just wished him a good day, after all, how can one defend his thinking?

    Have you not yet hit Rock Bottom?


    Sherman should have been DIRECTED to round up the top 5,000 ring leaders, and send them to meet their Maker as a judicially-sanctioned, and perfectly legal consequence of their treason/sedition.

    At that point, the killing had already stopped, and it was Sherman who stopped it, in broad terms.

    And yes sir indeedy-do, it would have taken the wind out of their sails.

    As a direct result of Lincoln's leniency and Johnson's perfidy, the 10,000,000 newly-minted Citizens of this farcical 'bastion of freedom/shining city on the hill' were 'fair game' for any WHITE person who wanted to get his lynch on, or his rape on, or his 'let's steal that N-word's land' on.


    PLEASE do not try to defend this.

    In Germany, the Holocaust STOPPED, at the cessation of hostilities.

    In the USA, the Black Holocaust STARTED, at the cessation of hostilities.

    No planter in his right mind was going to hang some slave because of some sort of minor offense.

    That would be like setting your tractor on fire because one of the tires was low on air.

    No. The lynchings started when African Americans were no longer PROPERTY.


    So, I don't really understand what your major malfunction is, but you have zero understanding of the subject matter at hand.


    Germany was forced ON ITS KNEES to acknowledge that the German Jews were CITIZENS, with all the rights and obligations so involved. They were led to experience a deep, deep shame for their demonic misdeeds.


    Since that time, Germany has become a world Champion of civil rights.


    The US South, on the other hand, was given a slap on the wrist, and the US Government turned a blind eye to the massive murder and mayhem wrought upon the new citizens.

    The US Southerner was led to believe that his heinous, evil, unholy massacre of these citizens of the United States of America was their RIGHT AND DUTY.

    THEY WERE TAUGHT TO BE PROUD OF THEIR MURDEROUS, EXTRA-JUDICIAL DEFIANCE OF LAW.

    They were taught to be proud of that flag.

    The political heirs to that shameful holocaust took over the Republican Party, once the Democrats threw them out, and those self-same SOBs are in the White House now.

    Are you proud?

    I don't give a tinker's damn about the Confederate battle flag and spurn those who do. As far as I am concerned, you might as well fly the Nazi swastika or the Rising Sun.

    While reading this thread, I just noticed the ad at the bottom of the page states, "Confed Flags as Low as $6.98!" Funny.

    Those are people that understand what that battle flag represents. Why can't another symbol represent what is good about the south.

    That flag was replaced and slavery was outlawed in this country. Now only outlaws own slaves. Why can't the South replace the battle flag?
