You know....progressives chastise and condemn the communist hunts of Joe McCarthy. With many other people as well. But at those times, times that were tough, the priveledged ones were used as the ones are of today. The modern progressive is Joe McCarthy of topix lore. Now we just have to figure out who is guilty of crimes against those who have different opinions. Evil put their foot in the door to you scumbags who bring up Christ like messages to bring your opponents down. But when they are gone, the price to survive in a former rich nation will be several times higher. We are half way through that now in a declining nation that will many times worse. The end times are abound...

I would not do that. Today the stars and stripe stands for FREEDOM. Why the stars and bars stands for slavery and racism and bigotry. And stupid inbred toothless redneck BS.

"And stupid inbred toothless redneck BS." Oh I see, and every one knows you are right. Study your history then come back and tell me what the Stars and Strips stands for. The KKK uses the Stars and Strips as well as the Confederate flag. More racist behind the Stars and Strips.

The Confederate Flag is not racist because it did not represent slavery. No slave ship ever sailed under the rebel flag. They sailed under the American Flag actually. The Confederate flag (rebel flag) represents heritage, not hate. It is true that racists have used the flag as their symbol, but no it does not represent racism. I for one, think the flag looks pretty bad ass.
General Lee, Confederate soldier, was actually against slavery thank you very much.

Yes, the mission of the Confederacy was misguided and did some terrible things, but then again so did the Union Army under Andrew Jackson and Lincoln. The same Federal Union army led by president Lincoln also committed genocide against Native Americans.

Should we get rid of the De Soto Memorial in Florida and other memorial to Spanish explorers? These guys were a mass murderers and slavers with no redeeming qualities.
