How dare you praise the traitor Robt E Lee who prolonged that bloody war causing untold suffering and all to preserve demonic slavery!

The CSA was morally no better than Hitler's Nazis. Those who would display the Confederate Rag should be surveilled as potential terrorist threats to our freedom.

Lee and Stonewall Jackson are overrated anyway. They had their successes on the battlefield against certain mediocre Northern commanders, but that luck could not last forever.

It's a flag of the country that was at WAR with the country you live in, for the entire period of its existence. This flag has no place in public property, regardless of how many died over it.

Same applies to San Fransicko allowing the LGBT rainbow flag being flown in the public square.

I didn't know the gay folks were at war with the U.S.A., sorry. Anyway, it's the property owner who has the right to decide, in this case it's the municipality, not some random angry folks.

What the Confederacy did wasnt treason. As a matter of fact is was completely constitutional. The South was following the rules, its the North that had the real problem. The Civil War was the war of Northern Aggression. The South was leaving the Union and the North had a problem with that because 85% of this country's money was made in the South. The North would have fell...for sure...without the South.

If it hadnt have been for the Northern Aggression, there wouldnt have been a war.

The flag that is raised today is the treasonous one. They are stripping you rights from you everyday. The forefathers of this country are turning in their graves.

The US Supreme Court seems to think otherwise.

... the court ruled that Texas had remained a state ever since it first joined the Union, despite its joining the Confederate States of America and its being under military rule at the time of the decision in the case....

... the court further held that the Constitution did not permit states to unilaterally secede from the United States, and that the ordinances of secession, and all the acts of the legislatures within seceding states intended to give effect to such ordinances, were "absolutely null"....

This is news. Once upon a time, you were too concerned to not lose your slaves.

... The next section asserts that the government of the United States and of states within that government had failed to uphold their obligations to South Carolina. The specific issue stated was the refusal of some states to enforce the Fugitive Slave Act and clauses in the US Constitution protecting slavery and the federal government's perceived role in attempting to abolish slavery.

The next section states that while these problems have existed for twenty-five years, the situation had recently become unacceptable due to the election of a President (this was Abraham Lincoln although he is not mentioned by name) who was planning to outlaw slavery....

(Description of the "Declaration of the Immediate Causes Which Induce and Justify the Secession of South Carolina from the Federal Union ")

You crakkkaz are knee-deep in the sh*t you created. Black people don't want anything to do with you, either.
