    Possible poutrage in SC @10am, confederate flag raising

    Confederate flag coming back to the South Carolina State House on Tuesday

    On Tuesday, members of the S.C. Secessionist Party will raise the rebel banner on a temporary pole in front of the Gervais Street steps..........The 10 a.m. ceremony will mark the three-year anniversary of the flag's permanent removal from the State House grounds...................This year, the group Showing Up for Racial Justice is planning its own "flag removal celebration" for the same time as the flag raising...
    I'm betting on "Charlottesville part duex" by this evening's "news", I'm sure there will be a YouTube live feed at some point I'll keep a look out and link to this site if I find one.

    Hopefully the South Carolina cops and the mayor of Charleston don't play "hands off until the violence erupts" like blue city bosses.

    But truthfully, its time to put the past behind us, furl this flag and put it away. Although there are those who will say the flag represents heritage and not hate the truth is today it is mostly flown by those who do hate

    I agree with you from the standpoint of I see the Gadsden flag as something both whites and blacks can get behind and still stands for generally what I see the rebel flag as, and even though whenever I see the rebel flag I see freedom I know a black will see slavery no matter what.

    My problem is the poutrage groups forcing it to happen. There's a protest, so we have to take it down because they say so. No one ever thinks to tell them to go F themselves, and keep telling them that until they get bored protesting. The flags been there for 150 years, it'll stand a summer or two of presstitute amplified sniffleages, but that never happens.

    Anything named after slave owning presidents will be next, because the precedent will have been set to bend over backwards and do whatever the poutrage group wants in an attempt to make them happy, which never happens.

    Maybe that's true, I don't know. I do know that I've known a few people with that flag & they weren't full of hate. But there's something bigger here. Does flying that flag physically hurt anyone? If it does & because of that it must be taken down.....Couldn't socialist/communists say exactly the same thing about our American flag?

    No this is PC bullshit & we shouldn't allow it. I don't care about someone else's hurt feeling or what they think something stands for. I don't have to live by the standards of their thinking any more than they have to live by mine. There is much more to loose here than that stupid flag, which WASN'T EVEN the flag of the southern states.

    Unfortunately, you are right.

    There are, however, many in the South, who are NOT racists, yet love to display the Confederate BATTLE Flag (It was never the Confederacy's flag, just the BATTLE flag...)

    They should still be able to show THEIR flag, if the First Amendment still stands. Especially considering the fact that we have Rainbow, ISIS, Hamas, Palestinian, and Mexican flags flown at almost every leftist protest-riot.

    But, as part of an official STATE Flag? I would prefer that ALL citizens of a state can look up to their flag, and not be "bothered." Thus, it would seem wise for states that still incorporate the Confederate Battle Flag on their state flags, to redesign them. I am immensely proud of the Tennessee State Flag. Original, has meaning, and, does not incorporate the Confederate symbols.


    Now, the removal and vandalism towards Confederate statues is going WAY too far, especially considering the fact that we still have statues of Lenin, US Grant, Tecumseh Sherman, Custer, and others with questionable life choices, standing all over the nation.

    They got a permit to hold the event and didn't even plan to fly the flag as long as the permit allowed.

    From what I can gather,the event itself was more peaceful than the discussions I saw in other forums.

    Group flies Confederate flag again at South Carolina capitol
