Austin Mayor Steve Adler announced he will not participate in this years Veterans Day Parade, held Saturday on Congress Avenue, because some groups signed up to march will be carrying the Confederate flag. Veterans Day should only be about honoring United States Military Veterans, Adler said in a statement Thursday morning. Symbols of racism, Civil War secession, and white supremacy should not be forgotten or erased, but they need to be remembered and studied in museums and classrooms not cheered and applauded in parades.

Just can’t take a mayor who has the same name as a drug-addled former Guns N’ Roses drummer seriously. Even worse, a Dem.
Piss on Austin. It ain’t weird...It just sucks.
...all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
When, Texas, will you right yourself?
Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston, all those who died for Texas Independence, those who lived to fight the Comanche, where are you now that we need you again?
Oh lord,the old “white supremacy” crap.
I live in the north and have NEVER associated the Confederate flag with anything negative——not once.
It was a regional Southern flag. Period.
Vets wouldn’t want you there either.
That’s how I saw it. The resemblance to many European flags just said to me that there was no malice in it.
We could right ourselves by moving the capitol back to Washington on the Brazos.
Who wants him there anyway?
By US law Confederate veterans are US veterans. The Austin Mayor is ignorant of US law and customs.
Liberals dont like us military anymore than they do the memory of the CSA military
Unless they could stock the CSA with fags and trannies too
Mayor takes a knee.
I’m not sure that would do it. Wherever you move it, scumbags will try to follow. There are still a lot more men who need killing than there are horses that need stealing.
This convenient excuse frees up the mayor for his weekly “servicing” which, until today, posed a conflict for the lad.
Poor Mayor needs a safe room, padded. My heart bl-e-e-eeeds for him
“Veterans Day should only be about honoring United States Military Veterans, Adler said.
THEN WHY CAN’T YOU GO HONOR VETERANS, YOU &^%#%$# JERK?!?!?! IGNORE THE FLAGS IF IT SUITS YOU.
Austin is the terminal “liberal cancer” tumor growing in Texas. The universities are now fully functional liberal indoctrination centers of Cal-Tex. Public schools will quickly follow. A wooden stake through the heart will not kill them...only the withdrawal of all funding for their operation will.
How very enlightened of this mayor. No one wants him there anyway with that attitude.
Put a Confederate flag in the mayor’s face.
...Veterans Day should only be about honoring United States Military Veterans...
Confederate Veterans are United States Veterans per Act of Congress.
Idiot statement from an idiot Democrat. Don’t confuse them with facts.
