An excellent graphic by state of the ESPN Poll of the CBF on the S.C. Capitol Grounds. Why am I not surprised by the reults?

I like how the “eeeeeeeeeeeeeevil” states are shown as red and the “good” states are shown as blue. Wouldn’t blue and gray be a better choice of colors for such a poll?

I am surprised about the level of support in the north. The vote up there is not the inverse of, say, Mississippi as I would have expected. Not a scientific poll though.

Dear Rest of the Country - especially those of whom are offended,

This is a SC issue. We’re ok - not entirely happy, mind you - with what we have now. Kindly butt out. Thanks.

Love,

SC

It’s sad to see Utah jumping on the liberal “historical cleansing” bandwagon, but the State has seen a mighty influx of Calif liberal scum. It seems like every liberal and queer in the intermountain west has decided to settle in Salt Lake City around the UofU. That’s why the SLC mayor is a filthy fascist ACLU lawyer.

Time for a purge.

Hanging onto the long dead past is destroying the Republican Party.

No real surprises there - Calfornia, Oregon and Maine tied for most liberal.

Hasn't anyone at ESPN ever read a history book? There's a reason why we have the Congress set up the way we do. Why our nation is called "the United States of America." It's because we have a federal system of government.

Each state is free, within its own power and jurisdiction, to organize itself as it chooses. It is impossible to imagine a matter that is more clearly submitted to the legislature of each state than the official state flag. And anyone who understands those basic points about American government, would also recognize that it's NONE OF ANY OTHER STATE'S BUSINESS what flag South Carolina chooses to have.

Sometimes matters of government are also matters of common sense. This ain't rocket science, folks. Still, the MSM continues to fumble the ball at almost every opportunity.

Given that the left didn't honor the deal, SC should put the flag back on top of the Capitol.

Kansas, Missouri, and Virginia were at 49-51 percent. Really close. I tell you again this shows how split our country is on everything. I think this 2008 election is going to be another squeeker. It is amazing how split we are as a nation.

—as somewhat of an aside to this, after doing a tour of Civil War battlefields four years ago and listening to the politically corrected stuff put forth by some of the guides, I suspect that after a Hillary administration, history will be corrected to reveal that the war was won by the slaves, wielding their hammers and sickles-—

Interesting that a far higher percentage of So. Carolinians (37%) objected to the flag than Mississippians did (24%). .....or Lousianians and Alabamians (both 27%), for that matter.

Looks like not much has changed since 1860. Confedracy was demanding “States Rights”, and according to this poll map, looks like the same players, with a few exceptions. To the Blue states, my response is; Yankee Go Home! This is a South Carolina issue, and they don’t need any of your “Sassy, fat-mouth, busybody, Yankee talk, tellin ‘em what to do”.

Local idiots viciously fought against a statue of Robert E Lee [finally] being erected in the Sharpsburg/Antietam Battlefield national park.

They felt the presence of any “tribute” to him was “innapropriate”.

Some other local guy paid for a piece of land and Marse Robert’s statue now stands on the periphery of the battlefield.

Seems to me that the Discovery Channel ought to be covering Barry Bonds, the Fishing Channel ought to cover the Packers games, and National Geographic ought to feature golf updates each month...if ESPN logic is correct. Something says that ESPN doesn’t know what they sell...and they might be open to real competition.

Let’s just say us South Carolinian’s decided to secede from the union over the Confederate flag issue and we ended up having to fight the damn yankees again.

Would the war be about the right to fly the Confederate flag on the state capital grounds or would the war be about states rights?

(This is a set up question to bait the Reb bashers ;~))

Give them time.

Sci Fi already shows wrestling, CNBC shows DEAL OR NO DEAL - (imagine the controversy if Fox News showed reruns of AMERICAN IDOL) and I watched PLANET OF THE APES on The History Channel a ocuple of weeks ago.

I'm northern, but regard Lee as one of the great men of American history. I hope the Southerners never forget their brave and heroic past.

I wonder when the Left is going to notice that many military bases are named after great Confederate leaders (A.P. Hill, for one)?

Also Florida nearly even.

Kansas and MO are surprising and upsetting. Won’t take much for them to go blue.

The flag is a bellwether issue. As a socialist family member says to me, “People shouldn’t be allowed to do that”.

Blue states like to run people’s lives.

What’s amazing to me is how uneducated people have allowed themselves to become in understanding the original intent of our Constitution.

The liberal control of the school system is bearing it’s evil fruit.

Interesting that Montana, Wyoming, and Alaska are red. I suspect the lack of large urban areas and minority populations is a factor. Also interesting that WV is pro-flag, considering that they began as the most pro-Union part of VA.

Lee’s strategies are still taught in military schools, if I’m not mistaken.
Most people don’t even know that he was Lincoln’s first choice as Union commander but Lee [who disliked slavery] said that he was a Virginian, first.

*shrug*

History gets rewritten so often that I can’t keep up any more.

The problem is that many Southerners are ignorant of their brave and heroic past. They are totally unaware of the many thousands of brave Southerners who did resist the Democrats' rotten Confederate slave empire. Too many people incorrectly think that Confederate=Southern.

Doesn't matter. It would still be a rebellion and would have to be suppressed.
