President Trump is right to oppose the uprooting and erasing of monuments who were established more than hundred years ago after the civil war in which many thousands of patriotic Americans sacrificed their lives for America with no slavery and with no racism. The removal of historic monuments on political left wings anti-American Jihadist and communist agenda of no America with no borders, no flag, no anthem and no constitution because it is ‘racist’ against the world is sickening. No country can survive as a country with no history behind even if the current Jihadists and communist anti-Semitic thugs of Black panthers and Black live matter are ruling the street mob with the support of the anti-Semitic Elites liars and crooks of the NY times, CNN, Washington Post c and America and Israel haters. It is time to stop the rule of our city streets with the violent mob which is played by the Clinton Foundation and George Soros to destroy American history and American rule of law, seeking the demise of America. It is the lawlessness and violence of the Hillary Resistance army of Black Lives Matter and the Intifada Jihadist groups that enjoy free role to destroy American historic monuments with hatred to Whites which became to hated race. When liberal Democratic Party pushing America to anarchy and chaos by financing the Black Live matter and Black Panther Jihadist thugs to destroy American universities, monuments and much more while blaming the Whites for being racists, it is time for President Trump to stop the madness and lawlessness pushed by Hillary and George Soros.

The state flag of Hawaii features the British Union Jack in the upper left quadrant. American soldiers died from 1775 to 1783 fighting the British Army, who marched under that same Union Jack. Is any one grievously offended? Is anyone throwing a temper tantrum? No, of course not. Too many of our citizens, left and right, have become so hyper-sensitive and emotionally fragile that it's now beyond ridiculous. You're a homophobe and don't like the rainbow flag? Tough s**t, grow a pair and deal with it! The sight of a statue of a long dead Confederate soldier or a cloth Mississippi flag buckles your knees and makes you tremble? Tough s**t, deal with it! It's lunacy! I remember 10 or 12 years ago, all of these Italian-American organizations were up in arms over "The Sopranos". They wanted HBO to cancel the series, they organized boycotts, they were soooo offended. And as a fellow Italian- American, I shook my head at these childish clowns, and thought "Hey, dummy....that little black rectangle with buttons that's in your hand? It's called a TV remote....CHANGE THE CHANNEL AND WATCH SOMETHING ELSE!!!" It's the same principle. If you don't like the Rainbow flag, don't fly it! It can't hurt you. The statue of the dead Confederate guy, more than likely covered in pigeon shit, that you walked passed thousands of times without giving it a second thought? Again, it's a statue. It can do you no physical or financial harm! For our own survival, we really need to mentally toughen up. More thinking with our brains and less reacting to our emotions. We're on a slippery slope, and the incline is getting steeper. Only through reason will the left and the right find common ground, and start getting this place in some semblance of order again. And that's the surest way of marginalizing and eventually eradicating groups like the KKK, the Neo-Nazis and the Antifa extremists. But if we keep getting the raw emotions of the ideological extremes and keep giving in to the over sensitivity over everything, we are done as a nation.

Yup! We've allowed a line to be crossed, and there's no turning the tide now. And crap like this only makes the other side's extremist more demonstrably batshit crazy. It's going to get ugly, I think.

Good for you. If you look at history, we have seen what ignoring hate groups like this has wrought.

Mississippi is right. That's their heritage. If Mississippi is forced to change their flag we should also destroy all evidence that Bill Clinton was ever President. He ran from Oxford because of a rape charge, he was disbarred for perjury involving sexual charges and he has 30 documented trips to Jeff Epstein's pedophile Island. The dude is a felonious sexual predator, not fit for accolades.

In a poll the people of Mississippi just a few years ago stated most of them felt inter racial marriages should still be illegal.

They are not to be held up as anything but the racist pigs they are.
