You're all about suppression.

And you're all about rebellion.

Stalin one of your heroes?

No, why should he be? As a man who kept millions of his people in slavery I would think he'd have more in common with your viewpoints than with mine.

who cares what the NORTH thinks/doesn't think about our BATTLE FLAG, for which so many HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of BRAVE/HONORABLE dixie FREEDOM FIGHTERS shed their blood???

offhand, i can't think of even ONE southerner who cares a damn what they think.

fyi, we southerners care EVEN LESS about what hate-FILLED/ignorant/arrogant/SELF-righteous/sanctimonious DAMNyankees think.

If that's what it takes.........

As a man who murdered millions, removed people from their homes in the dead of night, suppressed freedom, disarmed the populace, stole property, etc, I'd say he had more in common with your invading ancestors and your present day liberal yankee politicians.

BTW, how do you heat your home in winter? By burning books in the fireplace? (especially ones that don't agree with your damn yankee propaganda)

No, but I'm glad you recognize that I do get my information by reading actual books, and not relying on southron myth websites.

i agree, BUT i do NOT favor removing the battleflag from its current location. (every time i pass the statehouse, i get "misty-eyed" looking at the flag by the soldier's monument.)

we need to put the flag BACK up on the roof AND back on display in BOTH house chambers!

YEP. and the future is a FREE dixie REPUBLIC in the south and a SOCIALIST NANNY-state in the north.

i'm sure LEFTISTS, IDIOTS, FOOLS & south-HATERS (like YOU for example) will be pleased when that happens & you can thank yourselves for the split.

Then what motivates you to respond to northerners' posts, if you don't care what they think? You seem to address people directly, indicating an interest in confronting their thoughts.

North & South would probably not be as hot an issue today had it not been for the Reconstruction Period after the war when land and property were seized from many Southern families and most Southerners had their right to vote suspended. It was these acts that forced the bitterness and polarization of the races that persists to present times. As far as the emancipation of the slaves went, the South embraced it better than the North. The North feared an influx of cheap former slave labor from the South and the labor unions fought it in an attempt to save the jobs of their members. The Battle Flag never became a symbol of racism until the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s, where it was trotted out with every confrontation. It’s too bad that it became a symbol of something that it was never meant to represent.

to Mr Minster: nobody here doubts that you read a lot of books. otoh, they are evidently ALL authored by REVISIONIST, DAMNyankee, south-HATING, BIGOTS & KNOWING liars.

to ALL: NOBODY expects The Minister of DAMNyankee PROPAGANDA (N-S) to post TRUTHFUL information about the HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of DAMNyankee ATROCITIES committed against innocent/unarmed civilians & CSA prisoners of war, by the FILTH IN BLUE!

it is the NATURE of a DAMNyankee BIGOT to LIE, just as it is the NATURE of a SERPENT to SLITHER.

we southerners just want the DAMNyankee HATERS/bigots/"useful idiots" from the NORTH to stay HOME,"shut their mouths" & slither back under their respective logs.

in the case of the battleflag at the Statehouse, it is NOBODY else's business except that of the citizens of SC.most especially, it is NOT the business of the NCAA whacks and/or ESPN.

Why suppress anything. The Northern cause stands on its own merit, just like the Southern cause falls on its own merit.

Most people here, myself included think that the stars and bars is ok to fly regardless of the fact I’m a ‘damn yankee’. But for silly pride to cause you to insult those of us in the northern states while you try to deny your own slew of liberal politicians is just plain silly.

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”.

Kinda like the slavery issue that started the whole thing, isn't it? The Southern states insisted on their States Rights and didn't want the federal government telling them they couldn't continue with slavery.

You're right about one thing - some things have not changed much since 1860.

It’s time to let go of the past. The future is what’s important.

Not at the expense of learning nothing from our history.

And just what is it we are supposed to "learn" from looking at the Confederate flag?

This sounds like the blacks who want to keep bringing up slavery so we will "learn" from it.

Does not everyone already know there was slavery in the US? Does not everyone know there was a War fought between the North and the South?

Why do we have to eternally "learn" about it over and over again?

Talk about stupidity - there are no "Confederate" states. In case you missed it the Confederacy lost the war.

All 50 states are "American" states - not "Confederate" states.

Had the south won the war - THEN you would have Confederate states. But it didn't so there aren't.
