Always wanted a '69 Charger in bright orange with a confederate flag on the roof. Can just imagine blasting down the dusty Tennessee back country roads, maybe hop a creek or 2, even a few yeehaws for

This nonsense, along with changing fort names to purge the names of civil war generals on the losing side should be left alone. Pandering to the mob will only encourage more of the same. IMO Trum

You may not be able to apply leftist ideology to the 1860's but you can certainly apply abolitionist ideology.

By "pandering to the mob" you mean the U.S. Military, right?

No, I assumed everyone would know full well what I meant.

Funny how the Confederate Flag that stood for the Southern States is a symbol of racism even though the Civil War was over states rights and tariffs not slavery but the flag below somehow does not stand for racial preference and racism.

Why Trump supports the C flag because if given the chance, he would support segregation and slavery...

 

while I don’t completely support the removal of all confederate statues, I do see how they reinforce the beliefs and values of uneducated southerners   and northerners (38 states have statues) who refuse to let go of the past...

 

I just don’t think their removal will change the current thinking of white nationalists...the issue is much bigger than the presence of physical objects....

 

I heard a statement the other day which I cannot disagree with...the south lost the war but won the peace...most of the statues were erected not after the war but during the Crow years and 1900s civil right movements...it’s all about identity and a threat to one’s belief system and the refusal to let go of social inequality.
