So, some Stupid Pussy throws a tantrum over the Confederate flag but defends

traitor Bernie who sided with the Soviet Union that murdered and enslaved tens of millions because Righty doesn't like communists.

To whom does this make sense?

2. Attacking the rebel flag on the grounds of racism while embracing intersectional I.D. politics...

5. I have always felt bad for the conservatives of the Confederate States of America

In four years:
94,000: killed in action/died of wounds
26,000–31,000 died in Union prisons
290,000: total dead
137,000: wounded
436,658 captured
Total: 864,000 casualties

When you lose that many people, you ought to be able to fly your flag in memoriam even though I’m glad they lost.

6. According to Ancestry.com....

....I have a relative that died in the Civil War. You know how I feel about it? Not a damn thing really. He lived and died 105 years before I was born and it's so far back in history, how can I possibly be aggrieved for someone who lived so long ago that I never knew?

The Confederate Flag means different things to different people: and that's the one thing I don't think many of it's detractors understand. There is no one "correct" opinion on it. For me, growing up in the 70's and 80's, it meant having pride in being Southern. It meant, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers and Molly Hatchett and Tom Petty and The Outlaws..... all the Southern Rock Legends. It still flies down here in various places and, it's so ubiquitous and normal that, most folks don't give it a second glance.

All the judging of something that happened over a 100 years ago is historical presentism. Something my college history professor said true historians shouldn't engage in as you're applying your 21st century mores, education and knowledge of all thats occured afterward, to something you have only read about and could never truly know or experience.

7. Honestly, I think it's a frustration/control thing

I don't think they really give a shit either.

IMNSHO, Left leaners have virtually no control over the levers of power for the past 2 years. And after 8 years of having their "Messiah" running things, with the fawning media licking his boots every time he showed up, they're not used to not being able to call all the shots.

"We say Global warming is a major issue and we want to raise your taxes to pay for fixing it!" Ah, go fuck yourselves, is a general response.

Control of the House is only 1/2 of 1 branch of Government and is being frittered away with their "investigations" and posturing for the cameras.

But the Confederate flags, statues and such are something they feel they can make the rules for, supported by their ass kissers in the media.

12. One of the few times

I agree with you!

"When you lose that many people, you ought to be able to fly your flag in memoriam even though I’m glad they lost."

Well said.
