California lawyers say Mississippi’s state flag must go
washingtontimes.com ^ | 1/3/14 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 01/03/2014 10:17:14 AM PST by ColdOne

Lawyers from California have cast accusatory eyes on Mississippi, declaring that the state’s Confederate symbol on its flag that’s flown at a Santa Ana display is racist and needs to go.

The Orange County Bar Association has passed a resolution to remove the Mississippi flag from the Santa Ana civic center where it now hangs, along with the flags of all other states, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Members of the group say the Confederate symbol is an outdated relic that represents racism and hatred, The Associated Press reported.

California needs to mind its own business. Each state is sovereign on its own, right? California and New York, especially, need to remember this.

"along with the flags of all other states"????

Maybe Santa Ana should replace all of the state flags with rainbow flags and change it's "Plaza of the Flags" to "Plaza of the Fags". After all, this is in California.

I wonder if this is part of the conversation in Mississippi about the Kalifornia lawyers:

“I betcha he's even got a Commie flag Tacked up on the wall inside of his garage He's a snake in the grass I tell ya guys He may look dumb but that's just a disguise”

The same kind of tolerance that the SS, Stasi, Soviet Secret Police, Ceausescu's thugs, Kim Jong Un, and the EPA had (have).

Represents racism and hatred???? Only to a-hole libs who have no concept of history and pride. The Confederate flag is historical and is a symbol of pride for southerners and not a symbol or racism. My recommendation to those a-holes in the Peoples Republic of California, if you don’t like it, don’t look at it. But like all GD libs, they have to eliminate anything they don’t like or disagree with, while at the same time demanding we accept everything they want.

They can pass a resolution calling for anything they want. Doesn't mean it's going to happen.

If you (generic application) understand what’s going on here, then you should understand why U. S. loyalists don’t want binding international agreements.

Here a state is deemed by some not to have the right to decide what flag it wishes to represent it.

Internationally, the United States can been deemed in a like manner to coerce it to change it’s ways.

Good-by self-determination, hello to inferiority and domination from outside your borders.

The Governor of Mississippi should travel to California and retrieve their flag. Then he should ban the display of California flags in his state as they fraudulently show a grizzly bear which the leftist state eradicated over a century ago.

The California grizzly bear is a symbol of past hatred for nature and the legacy of the imperial colonists state bear killers.

Two can play this game.

There must be some place in Mississippi where the California flag can be used to wipe your feet after leaving the bathroom. I’d say printing rolls of toilet paper with the California flag on them but I’d be afraid to have anything related to California that close to my rear.

Mississippi could point out that California’s state flag is also a symbol of racism, signifying the long ago oppression of Mexicans and Japanese.

Between 1848 and 1860, at least 163 Mexicans were lynched in California, most under Democrat governors. Mexican American school children were subject to racial segregation in the public school system. They were forced to attend “Mexican schools” in California until 1947.

We are not all endowed, remember, with the inalienable right to not be offended. That is a fundamental right, guaranteed to a select few in the penumbra of the Constitution.

Right next to the right to an abortion...

And the California flag is the flag of whites that worked to shamelessly take a territory of a weaker, non-white nation. And it represents a shame country that didn’t even exist for more than a few days.

See how easy that was?

Actually, I believe that it was owned by Mexico after the Mexican-American war.

“The treaty called for the United States to pay $15 million to Mexico and pay off the claims of American citizens against Mexico up to $3.25 million. It gave the United States the Rio Grande boundary for Texas, and gave the U.S. ownership of California, and a large area comprising New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and parts of Wyoming and Colorado.”

for a vote several years ago and it was overwhelming defeated(not by just whites but by blacks too).

Well, no.
Take bears. I hate bears. Bears kill people. Bears on flags got to go!

And the there's miners. Miners got to go too!
Miners raped the natural beauty of the native American paradise that was California, and created a toxic wasteland that will last a thousand years!

This has got to stop!
If not us who?
If not now, when?

It's the right thing to do!

To the Ca. bar; we fought a war over 200 years ago with England to cast off the shackles of unjust colonialism, of taxation w/out representation, etc. We fought that same country again over such issues as their seizure of American sailors and forcing them into involuntary servitude in the British navy. Although our differences are long since past just like slavery, I’m still offended that both the Maryland and Hawaiian flags retain reminders of our oppressive history with Great Britain. I demand you remove these flags as well, I mean if you’re going to be fair about it...
